Searching for the Next Edith Head: #6 - Deena Appel

Name: Deena Appel

Deena Appel may not be a big name yet, but her delicate portrayal of femininity in this summer’s License to Wed was remarkable. Mandy Moore’s outstanding wardrobe was a bright spot in what was an otherwise mediocre film. Appel also costumed the Austin Powers trilogy, showcasing her ability to move from flashy period piece to subtle contemporary wear.

Examples of Her Best Work:
The Austin Powers trilogy International Man of Mystery, The Spy Who Shagged Me, Goldmember

The Not so Good:
The Farrelly Brothers disaster Stuck on You.

Chances of becoming the new Judith Head:
Slim. Her work in hokey comedies will continued to be overlooked.
