It is with very heavy heart that I tell you the news of costume designer Michael Dennison’s passing. I was having a hard time bringing myself to share this news because doing so would make it real, and none of us want this kind of news to be real. Our costume community has lost a true gem – a man who, at the age of only 58, had garnered the respect of his peers and the admiration of audiences the world over for his extraordinary work. He will be greatly missed. Here are some articles from around the web about his life, and his passing. RIP, Michael Dennison.
More pictures of his work after the jump:
Georgia O’Keefe – his work on this project garnered him an Emmy nomination as well as a CDG nomination.
Eat Pray Love – his final collaboration with Julia Roberts. They had a long relationship and together, created some unforgettable characters. Beautiful work.
Mona Lisa Smile – his first collaboration with Julia Roberts. Geez, just look at that color palette.

Our community will miss Michael Dennison’s artistry. Our condolences and best wishes go to his family and his many friends. RIP.
