2017 Oscars for Best Costume Design

Written by

The 2017 Oscars nominee list for Best Costume Design is out and picking a winner this year will be tough; the designs are wonderful. Marisa Dabney provided a few details about each show (it's on the Oscars website) and after the awards show on February 26th I'll highlight the winner for you. Best of luck to the nominees, but no matter who the winner is, costumers always win through being in association with such talented designers.
