    Absolutely gorgeous costumes. It gets me excited for the Academy Awards. To me, Lincoln had the best costumes of the year because the costumes allowed audiences to truly be transported back to the 1850s. The runner up is probably either The Hunger Games, because so many of the costumes were unique and colorful and crazy, or Les Mis, for the same reason as Lincoln

    I hope to take a trip out to LA next month and this will definitely be on my list of things to do while I’m out there. All of the nominees this year were astonishing, but if I was in the Academy, I would give my vote to Mirror Mirror. Simply stunning.
