Beavan is known for her work on some of the most iconic films of the past few decades such as A Room with a View and The King’s Speech. The 11-time Oscar nominee received her second Oscar win for Mad Max: Fury Road in 2016.
For Cruella, Beavan took inspiration from London’s punk rock movement of the 1970s, creating looks that were both rebellious and glamorous. The film’s costumes helped bring to life the world of Cruella De Ville, as played by Emma Stone in the feature film adaptation of Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel, The Hundred and One Dalmatians.
Beavan’s imaginative silhouettes and play with colours was praised by critics. In addition to her Oscar, Beavan has also won four BAFTAs and a Saturn Award, among many others.
Congratulations to Jenny Beavan for her latest Oscar win, and her outstanding contribution to costume design throughout her inspiring career.
