A Designer on Fire

From hackers to Hollywood, the 44-year-old wardrobe maven — who earned raves for her work on 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and is now dressing L.A.’s glitterati on Showtime’s Ray Donovan — is one of the edgiest, most ambitious costume designers in the industry. No wonder she was tapped to take on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She walks us through her career in four key looks.

The One That Got Me Noticed
Christina Aguilera’s ”Dirrty” video, which inspired Xtina’s infamous chaps phase: ”For good or for bad, that definitely got a lot of attention.”

The Game Changer
Dragon Tattoo, starring Rooney Mara: ”I wanted it to be really authentic. It’s not just about fashion. With Salander’s character, we went fully for function.”

The One I Just Finished
Catching Fire, costarring Elizabeth Banks: ”It’s futuristic, but not sci-fi. It’s bold and campy at times, then serious. I tried to bring a bit of darkness to it.”

The Muse: Blondie’s Debbie Harry
”I kind of went from mod to punk, and I think [musicians got me] thinking outside of the box and what was considered fashion. Anything that was more, like, street fashion, I was into it!”
