Personal Quote:

Unless of course the film requires it, I'm not interested in an exact replica of the period. I look at the period, how it should be, how it could be, and then I do my own version. [Time, 22 Feb, 1999] See more »


Grew up in south London. See more »


Frequently works with Martin Scorsese since she made the costumes from Gangs of New York (2002).
