At the Oscars night on February 24, famous British costume designer Jacqueline Durran bagged the coveted Best Costume Design trophy for her exemplary creations in the Russian novel-based English film ‘Anna Karenina’. 
 
In the Joe Wright directed period movie, the designer presented a perfectly balanced mix of 1870s extravagant silhouettes and Christian Dior and Christobal Balenciaga style 1950s couture looks.
 
Some of the breathtakingly classy sumptuous ensembles of the movie include a purple silk gown seasoned with ruffle-y bustle and mega puffy skirt, a lush ornate cream dress with a swooping silk neckline and a black off-the-shoulder ball gown.
 
The other nominees in the same category at the 85th Academy Awards were Paco Delgado for ‘Les Misérables’, Joanna Johnston for ‘Lincoln’, late Eiko Ishioka for ‘Mirror Mirror’ and Colleen Atwood for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’.
 
Anna Karenina is an adaption of Leo Tolstoy’s 19th century literary masterpiece with the same title. The novel narrates the story of a married Russian aristocratic woman and her passionately turbulent relationship with the unmarried affluent count Vronsky. English actress Keira Knightly and actor Jude Law played the main leads in the movie.
 
Durran, who had won the prestigious BAFTA award for Vera Drake in the year 2004, has twice been Oscar-nominated for her designs in director Joe Wright's earlier films- ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and ‘Atonement’.
