5. Cloud Atlas – Kym Barrett, Pierre-Yves Gayraud
For some great character work. Not only six different periods and styles, but also six different kinds of movies are being made here. It was no easy feat.
4. Anna Karenina – Jacqueline Durran
For a vast array of gowns and coats that all work to unify the film's overall impressionistic façade.
3. Moonrise Kingdom – Kasia Walicka-Maimone
For a spirited offering of 1960s accoutrement. With pink mini-dresses, Peter Pan collars, Boy Scout shorts, knee-socks, saddle-shoes, and that red wool Pendleton coat.
2. Mirror Mirror – Eiko Ishioka
For adding so, so much to the glamour of the gathering. I am always astounded when great designers are able to do "lavish" and do it fresh. And she certainly was one of the greats. RIP dear lady.
