COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
FOXCATCHER & GONE GIRL teasers...

Foxcatcher: Carrell's fake schnoz and affected speaking voice could be VERY problematic over the course of a feature film, but this is a terrific teaser and Tatum in a singlet assuages many other concerns. This is a big yes too.❞ - Roark

 I love that the Gone Girl trailer purposely keeps Amy a mysterious figure throughout -- we just get glimpses. Casting someone like Rosamund was really genius because the character is supposed to feel unfamiliar.❞ -Bia

This page is complete but for a massive time-loss problem in which I lost the write-ups and finalists lists. Apologies. I'll fill in after the season ends.

TRUE GRIT
Westcott color codes those meant-to-be similar characters beautifully. Then Rodarte throws more crystals and feathers onto Portman than she could possibly yank out in a fit of terror.
Glorious flattering cuts,  very smart color choices, amazing accessories. Plus everythink looks more expensive than you could possibly afford. Unless you're a member of the Recchi clan.
 It's a dream gig with plot points or details focused on the clothes (the borrowed dress, modelling swimsuit, undergarments in the factory). She shares the bright cheerful temperament of the film.
Absolute eye candy. Beadle, who knows from musicians, recreates iconic looks and fills out the rest with eye-popping period choices. Plus she gets that these are teenagers trying to be cool rock stars.
These characters aren't fashionistas (with the exception of LaBeouf -- the fringe gives it away) but the looks are just right and memorable. Especially smart is that Mattie's clothes are too big for her.
 

Finalists: Jenny Beavan did her usual period wonders for THE KING'S SPEECH and she even let Helena wear one of her own pairs of granny shoes | Jeffrey Kurland dressed up his dream invaders in sleek corporate espionage chic INCEPTION - and how great did Marion Cotillard look? |  Mark Bridges made authetically no-budget 90s looks memorable and character specific in THE FIGHTER |

Semi-Finalists:  Michael Kaplan glammed and feathered and boa'ed the dolls in BURLESQUE | Colleen Atwood erred on the side of fussy (as is her wont) but her ALICE IN WONDERLAND's looks still show her absurd talent | Christine Clark works foam latex and actual lights into tech-heavy costumes in TRON LEGACY | Brenda Broer does very subtle costume work in CAIRO TIME that helps Patty Clarkson's gradual emotional flowering. That last gown is a lulu.
