Sheppard, who is known for her work on ‘Schindler’s List’ and ‘The Pianist,’ both of which earned her Oscar nominations. I got the chance to chat with Anna B. Sheppard about the costumes, working with Angelina, and the difficulties of designing for an action movie like Maleficent.

Elle Fanning: Rodarte’s Muse on Nowness.com. I am big fan of Elle Fanning, as with Hailee Steinfeld she really does bring it when hitting the red carpet, so I was so pleased to see her in Todd Cole’s latest video collaboration with Rodarte, The Curve of Forgotten Things.

The film highlights Rodarte’s spring/summer 2011 collection. Seriously gorgeous short film.
