Awards Watch: Costume Dramas Edition

The Costume Designers Guild handed out their awards last night, and the Oscar frontrunner, Michael O'Connor's lush designs for The Duchess, won in the period film category. Lindy Hemming's redesign of the Batman costume (complete with what looked like a giant black olive encasing Christian Bale's head) won for fantasy, while the rags-to-riches threads of Suttirat Larlarb won yet another trophy for Slumdog Millionaire.

This win proves that Slumdog is truly unstoppable, as it beat out Robert Downey Jr. in a tux (not mention battle armor), Meryl Streep in overalls, Mickey Rourke in a unitard and Sarah Jessica Parker, Miss Fashionista Carrie Bradshaw herself, in a wedding dress. Maybe it was Freida Pinto's lemon yellow scarf that cinched the deal ...

  1. I didn't even know these awards existed. How interesting. I love the categories. It does remind you that decisions were made for every piece of clothing in a movie. Right down to Meryl's overhauls!
