Jenny Beavan, the costume designer for “Mad Max: Fury Road” who wore jeans and a biker jacket to the Oscars, insists she’s holding no grudges against people who didn’t feel like clapping her on the night.
And while she accepts her outfit, which she says was an homage to the movie, might not have been everyone’s cup of tea, the British designer hopes her win makes people realise that you “don’t have to look like a supermodel to be successful”, reported Us magazine.
“I am British with a slightly rebellious character; I always have been,” Beavan said about her fashion decisions.
“But, actually, in truth, you’ve seen me. I’m short, I’m fat. I really would look ridiculous in a gown. What I was actually wearing at the Oscars was sort of an homage to Mad Max — a kind of biker outfit. And George (Miller) loved it. The (vegan) leather jacket had the Immorten Joe symbol on the back and I was just giving a little wink to Mad Max,” she said
