Emmys: 'Behind the Candelabra' costume designer on bedazzling Michael Douglas and Matt Damon

On Saturday night, Los Angeles’ FIDM Museum & Galleries unveiled its annual television costume design exhibit, which features more than 120 costumes from both period and fantasy shows like Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey, as well as fan favorite contemporary series like Nashville and House of Cards.

Also on display are pieces from the oh-so-fabulous-and-blingy wardrobe seen in HBO’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra, for which costume designer Ellen Mirojnick scored an Emmy nomination.

EW caught up with Mirojnick at the event — co-hosted by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences – to ask her about re-creating Liberace’s campy costumes for Michael Douglas, convincing Matt Damon to slip into that rhinestone-studded G-string, and the movie character that inspired her to become a wardrobe designer.

Entertainment Weekly: How did you hear about your Emmy nomination?
Ellen: Mirojnick: I [was in] in New York working on a new project with Steven Soderbergh. I was in a hotel room waiting and my assistant said “Just stream it!” [After I heard], I went to the office and had champagne and celebrated. Steven, Michael, Matt, myself, [production designer] Howard Cummings — all of the support team, makeup, hair, everybody. It was one nomination after another. Everybody was like, “How many now? How many now?” This is a small team that is so respectful [of each other], and the synchronicity between us all is so sublime. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I felt so privileged to have been asked to be a part of this.

Liberace had so many outrageous costumes, where did you start your research?  READ FULL STORY
