9 Gorgeous Movie Costumes That Got As Much Attention As The Plot

The Oscar is one of the most awaited events praising the most talented professionals in the film industry. There are 24 categories and one of them is the award for the Best Costume Design. The nominees for the category are chosen by the Costume Designers and Art Director members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

It must be hard for them to choose the winner. Filmmakers make a great effort to create extraordinary outfits to express the characters’ personalities and reflect the spirit of the movie. Some costumes become the fashion inspiration, and some have sparked international manhunts.

Below are 9 gorgeous movie costumes that deserve an Oscar.

#1 Death on the Nile (2022)

The breathtaking costumes in “Death on the Nile” were created by Oscar-nominee Paco Delgado and his team. They spent a year studying the fashion of the 1930s and producing about 150 outfits. The sophisticated outfits make the characters stand out. For example, in the opening scene, Linnet enters a jazz club in London in a stunning silver evening gown that conveys her wealth. Underneath the spotlights on the dance floor, the dress most definitely shone brightly whilst conveying elegance. Linnet was put on a peach-colored dress embroidered with white cranes to emphasize her contradictory character.
