Jacqueline Durran creates 'Mr. Turner' clothes with a lived-in look

Jacqueline Durran creates 'Mr. Turner' clothes with a lived-in look

Director Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" has won high praise for its portrayal of Britain's early 19th century master "painter of light" J.M.W. Turner, played by Timothy Spall. Working within England's Romantic period, Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran outfits Turner, in the last 25 years of his life, in dark and muted clothes. That palette allows the eye to be drawn instead to his at-the-time controversial depictions of "surrounding light." Besides, "that's how real people wear their clothes," Durran says. "That was important, to have it seem lived in."
