~'I Am Love' Best Costume Oscar Nomination~

There is nothing I don't adore about Luca Guadagnino's amazing melodrama I Am Love and I was delighted to hear that the film had received an Oscar nomination for costume design. It has fast become one of my favourite films of all time due, in part, to the exacting attention to detail which meant that everything in the film, from the type-face to the costumes, was perfectly pitched. Here are a few stills, but definitely rent to film if you haven’t already seen it.
