Searching for the Next Edith Head: #2 - Alexandra Byrne

Name: Alexandra Byrne

Alexandra Byrne has found her niche and does what she does quite well, taking her time with each project to ensure a high quality film. She seems to gravitate towards the period or epic pieces such as Elizabeth and Finding Neverland, and seems to learn from each project, as each film gets better and better. It’d be fascinating to see her costume a more contemporary film; would her grand design tendencies overwhelm or enhance the picture?

Examples of Her Best Work:
Finding Neverland, The Phantom of the Opera, Elizabeth

The Not so Good:
None. Everything she touches turns to gold.

Chances of becoming the new Edith Head:
Very good.
