83rd Academy Awards - Nominated for Best Costume Design - Sandy Powell - The Tempest. Powell stuck to a palette of dark and metallic hues – seen on Gonzalo (Tom Conti) – to define the avant-garde look of the mythical film.
Though Michael Fassbender's slave owner character was a volatile man, McQueen "wanted him to be kind of romantic," Norris says. For that look, his character wore looser shirts with fuller sleeves. Norris also favored the vests worn by Fassbender because of the lace-up feature in the back. "If the clothes are weird, I tend to go for them," says the designer, who has already nabbed a Costume Designers Guild award for her work on the film.
Though Edward Norton plays the stern captain of the Lutz military police, set in Anderson's fictional Eastern European nation called Zubrowka, his style was arresting. Canonero used her connections with Fendi to have a gray Astrakhan coat designed for the character.
