This is a difficult one to pick. I loved the costumes in Trainspotting (I know, really?!) because they were perfect for the characters, place and time, Delicatessen for their wackiness, adored the costumes in the barn-raising scene in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, all the costumes in Roman Holiday and Sabrina (Edith Head) and those beautiful, beautiful costumes at the race in My Fair Lady (Cecil Beaton).

Probably could go on, I’m realising how much the ‘look’ of tv or film fixes it in my mind.

Alien – for the crumpled, worked-in feel of the costumes, the Peter Capaldi Doctor Who for the unexpected scarlet lining to his jacket…

I’d best stop!
