Almost a month ago I was telling: Les Miserables was a film of Oscar and had a costume Oscar. And yesterday, the day of the nominations, the costume designer Paco Delgado received his first Oscar nomination for his spectacular and flawless work.
In this post I show some of the sketches painted by the designer for the film canary Les Miserables. Pieces inspired by painters of the period, as E Ugene Delacroix and Francisco de Goya, and the result is a magnificent work that reflected all classes social for 33 years. A total of 2,200 costumes of extras that were ordered from France, Spain, Italy and England
Delgado will compete for the Oscar against Joanna Hohnston by Lincoln, Jacqueline Durran for Anna Karenina, Colleen Atwood for Snow White and the Huntsman and Eiko Ishioka (Snow White (Mirror, Mirror).
In a period film attempts mainly reproduce reality as accurately as possible. But since this is a musical, a surreal situation in itself, we tried to introduce something fancy.
He aspires to become the second Spanish with an Oscar for Best Costume, after achieved in 1971 by Antonio Canovas del Castillo by Nicholas and Alexandra, Yvonne Blake shared.
Nominated for Goya
Paco Delgado is also nominated for a Goya for his work on Snow White. A fascinating gothic costumes and military, with menswear, runaway or baroque.
Paco Delgado lives in London. His career began while there began his work in films as an assistant Spanish Lala Huete in In Praise of Older Women with Sonia Grande or in the other. But it was in the community when he became the sole responsibility of a costumes for a film. From there, Pedro Almodóvar noticed him and signed him to Bad Education, a relationship that continues today, as shared credits with Jean-Paul Gaultier in The Skin I Live.
Repeated with Alex de la Iglesia, who got his first BAFTA nomination for Sad Trumpet Ballad and then came his international springboard in Biutiful Alejandro González Iñárritu. Then met Tom Hooper, director of Les Miserables, and hired him for Delivery King, who liked both been repeated in this film that is worth its more than possible Oscar. No doubt an enviable record.
