Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
It’s the first Thursday of the month which means it is time for our Oscars Winners Edition. Today we’re going to cover best costume design as well as best makeup and hairstyling. I bring you three picks for each!
#1 Roman Holiday
I absolutely adore Audrey Hepburn, but she’s not the shining star we need to talk about right now. Responsible for the costume design on Roman Holiday was Edith Head. That woman is an absolute legend. She won this particular Academy Award a total of eight time and was nominated 35 times. Honestly, every single costume I’ve ever seen of her is absolutely stunning!
#2 Marie Antoinette
Milena Canonero took care of the mesmerizing and memorable costume for Marie Antoinette. I watched the movie years ago and literally the only thing I remember about it are the stunning outfits, so it was definitely a deserved win! By the way, she already has 4 wins!
#3 Grand Budapest Hotel
I wasn’t quite as over the moon with this movie as apparently everybody else was, but I did love the costumes. Grand Budapest Hotel is absolutely amazing visually and the costumes (also by Milena Canonero) are a huge part of that.
Beetlejuice is definitely famous for serving some iconic looks. Ve Neill, Steve La Porte, and Robert Short took care of makeup and hair which is definitely what makes this movie so memorable!
#2 An American Werewolf in London
When I do these Academy Award winners lists I always browse the Wikipedia lists and end up surprised with all the movies that won at some point. This is a great example for that. I had no idea An American Werewolf in London got this one (owing to Rick Baker) but it’s definitely a deserved win.
#3 How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Speaking of Rick Baker, together with Gail Ryan he won another award for How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Jim Carrey’s look in this film is nothing short of iconic!
