Blanchett’s coat in ‘Carol’ kept falling apart

Los Angeles, Jan 28 (IANS) Actress Cate Blanchett’s coat in the Oscar nominated film “Carol” kept falling apart in every scene, says the movie’s costume designer.

Two-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Sandy Powell, who put together the signature coat in “Carol” shared that the “coat itself fell apart every single day, every single scene”, reports

Powell has been nominated for an Oscar for her work in the Todd Haynes directorial.

“We’ve already seen Therese arrive at work and be given the hat she hates to wear so we’ve established her but the most important thing was her first sight of Carol, I just knew the fur coat had to be a light colour. That was my first feeling about the film was that the coat had to be pale,” Powell said.

“I found the right colour in the wrong coat, the right-shaped coat in the wrong colour. The coat itself fell apart every single day, every single scene. It sort of split and every single day, the poor costumer that looked after Cate… she spent her entire lunch time repairing it every day. It was a nightmare,” she added.

Powell has also been nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award for the excellence in period film category.

The film is set to release in India February 16 by PictureWorks India.
