Costume Stories: This Week, Mad Men & Behind the Candelabra

A few costume design stories you might have missed this week.

The Big Wedding

HELLO!’s not exactly in-depth interview with costume designer Aude-Bronson Howard is still worth a read.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Capitol Couture’s website is relaunched with its spring edition ‘Chroma Nouveau’. Apparently the focus is now on ‘high fashion’ (goodness only knows what Effie was wearing before).

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Director Bryan Singer tweets a photo of Jennifer Lawrence in Mystique costume/make-up.


Excellent costume analysis of Stoker. Love the Charlie notes especially.


Good Q&A with Shonda Rhimes about the costumes in ABC’s political thriller series.

BBC Bans Tights

Costume designers get these sorts of notes all the time so don’t blame them when period dramas are not ‘authentic’ or ‘period accurate’.

Mad Men

Megan Draper as Sharon Tate. Has Janie Bryant let something slip..?

Behind the Candelabra

Ellen Mirojnick talks through some of her outfits – on stage and off – for Liberace and Scott Thorson.
