You don’t have to look like a supermodel to be successful: Jenny Beavan


Jenny Beavan, the costume designer for “Mad Max: Fury Road” who wore jeans and a biker jacket to the Oscars, insists that she’s holding no grudges against people who didn’t feel like clapping for her on the night.

As reported by foreign media agency, she accepts that her outfit was homage to the movie and 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.”

“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 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.
