Oscar Costume Design

 Why Little Women get Oscar Costume Design?

The best costume Oscar winner is Little Women, which is a novel I like very much. I'm really happy that the 2019 version of Little Women won the prize.

And Little Women probably won the prize thanks to Jacqueline Durran, the costume designer, who controls the costumes, because the costumes and characters echo each other properly.

Let's take a look at Jacqueline Durran's wonderful collocation.

Meg March, played by Emma Watson, grew up from a girl who yearned for rich days, big houses and gorgeous clothes to a mature woman who followed her true love.
The dress also changes with her mood.

Through her friend's gorgeous pink dress, she reveals her vanity.

But later mature Meg understood the value of true love, and also changed from vanity clothes to simple and monotonous clothes with temperament and connotation.

Jo MarchPassion, the pursuit of Jo March (played by Saoirse Ronan), is naturally the representative color of passionate red.

As Jo honed in London, her character became more tenacious and mature. Gradually, the color of her clothes tended to be dark.

For example, dark blue is a good representative of tenacity.

Amy MarchThe most artistic and fashionable third lady, Amy March (played by Florence Pugh).

The highlight of clothing can be said to be the time to follow her aunt to Europe to learn painting skills.

At that time, Amy's clothes were gorgeous and full of artistic atmosphere, with the atmosphere of aristocracy at that time.

Exquisite patterns and color matching are just as harmonious as oil painting.

For example, the dress of dance, although it is low-key dark blue, is full of connotation and noble breath under the background of gold lace.

Beth MarchThe gentle, kind, family-minded Beth March, played by Elizabeth Scanlen, is one of my favorite characters.

Such a soft little sweetheart is, of course, to use soft cloth and color to highlight the character.

Natural and comfortable cotton and linen texture, the lavender dress is the most suitable.

Little Women in 2019 is what I watched after reading the original book and watching 1994.

I think the plot selection in 2019 is very delicate, focusing on emotion and details.

I like the contrast of different time and space very much. Which version of Little Women do you prefer? Or what do you think of Little Women in 2019?
