Biography

Prior to beginning her career in film, costume designer Deborah Lynn Scott worked at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder, CO and at the Pacific Conservancy, Santa Maria, CA. She received her first feature credit as costume designer on "Don't Answer the Phone!" (1979) and landed a choice plum for the resume as costumer for Steven Spielberg's "E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial" (1982). "Back to the Future" (1985) allowed her to move fluently from the nostalgia of the 1950s to the modern era, while "Coupe de Ville" (1990) and "Hoffa" (1992) showed off her facility with the designs of the 60s. Noted for the richness and detail of her research, Scott delved into the early 20th Century for "Legends of the Fall" (1994) and then got the chance of a lifetime to design the clothes for James Cameron's "Titanic" (1997), creating a 1912 wardrobe that ran the gamut from the very rich to the very poor, both European and American. For her efforts, Scott took home an Oscar for Best Costume Design.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I think period films are what people focus on. But it's actually more difficult to do a contemporary movie. In a period film, you have certain rules. In contemporary design the concept can be really creative, because you have a billion choices." --Deborah Lynn Scott quoted in Daily News, March 17, 1998.
