Infographic: The Most Iconic Costumes in Oscar History (via Stylight)

Ahead of the Oscars, Stylight created this beautiful infographic about some of the most iconic costumes in Oscar history, including outfits from My Fair Lady (1964), Moulin Rouge (2001), and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014). Here’s what they had to say:

Costume has the ability to transport viewers to another place entirely and as esteemed eight time Academy Award winning costume designer Edith Head said ‘What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not.’ So to celebrate this weekend’s 88th Academy Awards on February 28th Stylight has collated 15 of the most iconic costumes in Oscar history that were worthy of an award in their own right! From historical robes and classic gowns to fantasy costumes and swanky suits we take a look back at the most fashionable moments in film.
