Contender – Costume Designer Paco Delgado, Les Misérables
Below The Line
The despair and the glory in director Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Les Misérables is a spinning world of drama unfolding into redemption. To help spin this tale against the backdrop of France from the year 1815 to 1845, Hooper enlisted costume designer Paco Delgado. Delgado’s work so far has been primarily in Spain, collaborating with such notable directors as Alejandro González Iñárritu on Biutiful (2010) and Pedro Almodóvar on The Skin I Live In (2011). But this changed when he met Hooper working on an advertising campaign in 2011. The invitation to design for Les Misérables was an unexpected delight. “Hooper liked my work [on the advertising campaign] and told me that he was working in this project and he would like me to work in it,” Delgado said. “I thought that it was very kind of him but forgot all about it. It was my surprise when eight months later he called me to ask me if I was free to embark in the project.”
