‘Poor Things’ costumes exhibition opens at Benaki Museum in Greece


Twelve costumes from Giorgos Lanthimos’ film “Poor Things” are featured in an exhibition inaugurated by Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou at the Benaki Museum in Kolonaki.

According to iefimerida.gr, the exhibition, titled “Poor Things: The Costumes – In Conversation with Costume Designer Holly Waddington,” includes the participation of Waddington herself, who will speak to the public on Wednesday at the museum’s Pireos branch. The exhibition is open to the public since Wednesday (June 12) and will remain open until September 29, 2024.

Waddington, an Oscar and BAFTA award-winning costume designer, created six of the costumes on display for the character Bella Baxter, portrayed by Oscar winner Emma Stone. The other six costumes were worn by actors Willem Dafoe, Mark Ruffalo, Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael, Kathryn Hunter, and Vicki Pepperdine.

The costume designer expressed her enthusiasm and gratitude for this “beautiful exhibition at the Benaki Museum, which gives a new context” to their presentation, and she also spoke about Lanthimos as a “creative and liberating person” who gave her a free hand in the design of the costumes, only requesting that they express the film’s evolving story.

The film is based on a novel by Alasdair Gray, and has been awarded four Oscars and five BAFTAs, along with a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
