Playing Dress Up

| March 31, 2016 | Parties National

Some of Hollywood’s most creative players stepped out for the 18th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, sponsored by Lacoste. Held days before the Oscars, the glamorous gala celebrated wardrobe excellence in film, television and short form design.
The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom buzzed with excitement as stars including Mindy Kaling and Kate Beckinsale toasted the evening’s nominees. Upon receiving his Distinguished Collaborator Award, Quentin Tarantino revealed a little known fact: The iconic black suits worn in Reservoir Dogs were actually jackets and jeans. “[Costume designer Betsy Heimann] was right—they looked terrific that way,” he said.
Career Achievement honoree Ellen Mirojnick—who created costumes for classic films such as Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct—said it best during her emotional speech: “Some projects are inspired and some you want to forget, but at the end of the day, we’ve made an imprint that gets carried by the tides of time.”
With that in mind, we had to ask: If you could own/wear the wardrobe of any character, whose would it be? -Photography by Getty Images
