Costume design is a very important part of the movie-making industry. It plays an integral part in creating the story and transporting us to the right time and the place. Movies that win Oscars for costume design usually have a very specific style, and while sometimes Oscars are given for making the most realistic and historically-correct costumes for the time period, other times the costumes have absolutely no base in history and deserve an Oscar based on attention to detail and creativity that went into the costume design as part of world-building of the movie. Let’s take a look at some of the award-winning costumes in movies.

1. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

The costumes in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them are based on the style of the 1920s fashion and enhanced by various elements of the magical world of Harry Potter. So you’ll see Hogwarts house colors blended into the accessories that the characters wear, as well as certain style elements that are specifically made to reference wizardry and magic, Colleen Atwood was the costume designer on this movie and we think that Oscar was well deserved.

2. Phantom Thread

This whole movie is about a very eccentric but undoubtedly talented fictional haute couture designer, his life, work, and love. So it only makes sense that it would get an Oscar for costume design. The costumes in this movie are impeccable and the love for creating beautiful clothes is woven into the fabric of the film. Mark Bridges did a fantastic job creating the costumes for this movie, he based them on the works of several lesser-known English designers and blended their styles together creating something unique and mesmerizing.

3. Black Panther

We all cheered as we watched Ruth E. Carter accepted the Oscar for Costume Design in 2018. The costumes she designed for the Black Panther movies are a gorgeous mix of futuristic designs and traditional African clothes with haute-couture elements thrown in to fit the narrative of the movie. The result is stunning and awe-inspiring.
