Anne Hathaway feted with Guild's Lacoste Spotlight Award
The costume designers behind “Skyfall” (contemporary) “Anna Karenina” (period) and “Mirror Mirror” (fantasy) took home the top prizes Tuesday night at the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, which were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.Unlike the Academy, which confines its kudos to one category, the 60-year-old Guild, which touts more than 800 members, hands out laurels in three different film categories. Jany Temime (“Skyfall”) won last year in the fantasy category for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2.” The late Eiko Ishioka (“Mirror”), also nominated by the Academy, previously won an Oscar for “Dracula” (1992). Jacqueline Durran (“Karenina”) was nominated previously by the Guild for “Atonement” (2007). During the course of the evening, Anne Hathaway was honored with the Guild’s Lacoste Spotlight Award. She has donned the creations of Paco Delgado (“Les Mis”) and Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight Rises”) on big screens over the past year. Also honored were Eduardo Castro, whose credits include “Miami Vice,” “Ugly Betty,” “Once Upon a Time,” who started out polishing boots on “Apocalypse Now” and “A Bridge Too Fat” (“am I really this old?”) and Judianna Makovsky, the talent behind “The Hunger Games,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “Pleasantville” for career achievement in television and film, respectively. Said Makovsky, whose formative years included assisting Milena Canonero: “I’m much too young; I haven’t done anything yet; and I hope this isn’t my gold watch moment.” Also saluted was David Le Vey (Distinguished Service Award) and “SNL’s” Lorne Michaels for distinguished collaborator, presented by Steve Martin, Maya Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Other winners included Caroline McCall for “Downton Abby” in the TV period-fantasy category; Lou Eyrich for “American Horror Story: Asylum, Season 2” in movie for mini series; and Molly Maginnis for “Smash” (contemporary TV series) and Makovsky (Captain Morgan Black) for commercials.
