Searching for the Next Edith Head: #1 - Arianne Phillips

Name: Arianne Phillips

While some are only able to achieve a certain look, a truly good costume designer should be able to present a wide variety in their work. Arianne Phillips seems to have the most range and potential, for my money. From the glamorous dishevelment of Hedwig and the Angry Inch to the era-specific Walk the Line to this fall’s subtle Western 3:10 to Yuma, Phillips demonstrates a wide range and comfortably pulls off both ends of the spectrum beautifully.

Examples of Her Best Work:
Walk the Line, Hedwig and the Angry Inch

The Not so Good:
The Mod Squad

Chances of becoming the new Edith Head:
Excellent. Understated, overstated, Phillips makes her point loud and clear.
