In this new episode of ”Meet the Hollywood Costume Designers” docu-series we met Sonu Mishra in her home in Rome during a rainy day. That she, though, brightened with her stories from the set.
She told us how hugely challenging it was to work on ”Genius:Einstein” and design costumes that covered a 70-year period.
But also working on ”Genius:Picasso” wasn’t a cake walk. To transform a sex symbol like Antonio Banderas into the matador-like Picasso she has put together all her skills … and yards and yards of heavy wool.
Which Banderas stoically wore during very hot days.
She made it and got two Emmy nominations for the costumes of both ”Genius:Einstein” and ”Genius:Picasso”.
The news of her second nomination reached Sonu right after a visit to the Vatican. She then sat on a bench in Bernini’s square and, surrounded by Michelangelo’s statues, she felt a deep gratitude for everything.
Now we just have to wait to see her work in ”The Shining Girls”, the new Apple+ TV series with Elisabeth Moss, produced by Leonardo Di Caprio.
