I found these beautifully delicate sketches by Ann Roth, costume designer, for "The Reader."

I haven't seen this movie yet, but I did get a chance to speak to Ann Roth last Fall, much to my absolute shock and amazement and horror. She was invited to speak to a class and I joyously was invited with a few others to sit in. She had sandals and blue toe nail polish and sat with her hands folded over her head mostly the whole time. She gave us advice that we have not stopped talking about since:
"You can have anything you want as a costume designer. Anything. You can have anything you want! Well... except for two things....BUT! You can have anything you want."
we all prodded her to puh-lease fill in... to which she just shook her head and said "I am not here to talk about that" with a little smile.
Six months later, I still think about that every day and scratch my head.
