NETWORK - 1976 MOVIE( United Artists Corp )
Betsy Heimann, costume designer
"Network" (1976) Faye Dunaway just has style. They played against her edge in those soft chiffons and straight skirts. [Pictured here.]
"Almost Famous" (2000) Penny Lane [ Kate Hudson] was so vulnerable in that coat with the fur collar and the cuffs. Everyone knew what it felt like to want to hide in that coat.
"Pulp Fiction" (1994) I couldn't afford pants long enough for Uma Thurman, and so I said, "Let's cut them off." Everybody claimed credit for that white shirt, but it was designed for the movie.
"Fight Club" (1999) I think the looks in that movie influenced menswear tremendously.
"Lawrence of Arabia" (1962) You see this huge sun and this black speck. Then Omar Sharif comes closer and you see his gown moving and his headdress.
