This woman is my one of my heroines: costume designer Sandy Powell.
I was first drawn to her through the film Orlando (1993), directed by Sally Potter. She had also designed the costumes for Shakespeare in Love, the Aviator, Wings of the Dove, Interview with the Vampire. You get the idea.
She is an amazingly talented designer and knocked all the A-listers for six, as far am I'm concerned, this year at the Oscars, with her 1930's style gown and fabulous accessories. She won (again) for Young Victoria.
