The Little Silent Film That Could
Back in December, The Artist‘s costume designer Mark Bridges told Style.com, “When we wrapped, we had no idea how things would turn out. We thought, it could be the greatest thing since sliced cheese, or it could go direct to video.” As it turns out, Bridges and the cast of the silent film had created an Oscar winner. Last night, the film topped the winner’s list, along with Hugo, both films picking up five gold statuettes. Bridges took home one of them, beating out the likes of W.E.‘s Arianne Phillips for the gold. Catch our full interview with Bridges here. Also, you can catch a few of Bridges’ Artist costumes on display at the L.A. FIDM Museum through April 28 as part of the annual Motion Picture Costume exhibit highlighting costumes from this year’s Oscar films.
