It’s a race between Baron Harkonnen of “Dune” Brando and the unrecognizable Jared Leto of “House of Gucci”. Constantly updated.
This season, the makeup and hairstyling race is led by ‘Dune’s intricate prosthetic work on nightmarish Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård), who confronts Jared Leto’s unrecognizable transformation as the disrespectful Paolo in’ House of Gucci. “. The roster also includes Jessica Chastain’s transformations as Tammy Faye Bakker in “Tammy Faye’s Eyes,” Emma Stone as the ’70s punk-inspired version of Disney’s beloved villain, “Cruella,” and the Eddie Murphy’s afro-punk returns. look like Prince Akeem in “Coming 2 America”.
“Dune” (Warner Bros.) features an incredible array of work by Denis Villeneuve’s makeup, hair and prosthetics designer Donald Mowat. But the star, of course, is the often naked 600-pound Baron Harkonnen, inspired by Marlon Brando’s hybrid gorilla look in “Apocalypse Now” and “Dr. Moreau’s Island.” Mowat enlisted the help of Swedish team of prosthetic artists Love Larson and Eva von Bahr to create the complex combination, requiring a heavy load of silicone, with plaster bandages to support the frame and maintain the shape of the silicone, while the head and shoulders were made separately. . The seven hour process for the full suit was then followed by separate parts for the neck, head, chin, cheeks, earlobes, and hand prostheses on the joints. All in all, it’s a remarkable transformation for the sinister villain.
In “House of Gucci” (United Artists Releasing), prosthetic designer Göran Lundströn got creative in transforming Leto into the bald and chubby future fashion designer Paolo. He reverse engineered the look of the long, thin-haired actor (who wore a chunky costume), with a bald three-piece beanie, wig, over half a dozen prostheses, and a retouched mustache. But to get on set ready to play the role of Paolo, Leto asked Lundströn to apply his prosthetic tour de force elsewhere, hidden from the rest of the cast.

To recreate the iconic features, hair and unique style of Tammy Faye Bakker for “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” (Searchlight Pictures), makeup artist Linda Dowds, hairstylist Stephanie Ingram and prosthetic designer Justin Raleigh worked in tandem to perfecting the famous look. Raleigh and his team at Fractured FX designed the prosthetics that changed the overall anatomy of Chastain and Andrew Garfield, to closely match the real Jim and Tammy, as well as the continuity of the actors as they get older. physically throughout the film. Ingram made 10 custom wigs for Tammy’s different looks, which involved elaborate combinations of different wigs to create Bakker’s multi-layered, underlined fluff.
Makeup artist and hairstylist Nadia Stacey (“The Favorite”) did a bit of reverse engineering to create Stone’s’ 70s punk look in Disney’s “Cruella” (Disney) origin story. The idea was to work on the eventual iconic two-tone hairstyle in black and white, black eyeshadow, liner and red lips. Stacey started out by going beyond black and white hair and a touch of makeup for Cruella’s night out in the stunning red dress. She built a mask using jewelry and makeup as a deception. But Stacey’s most inspired punk look was the “The Future” mask drawn in black on Stone’s face, paired with a shiny red lipstick, riffing on the cover of the legendary Sex Pistols album, “Never Mind. The Bollocks “.
