BIOGRAPHY

A veteran costume designer, Ann Roth had amassed more than twenty Broadway credits before entering films with George Roy Hill's "The World of Henry Orient" (1964). Over the past four decades, she has developed a close collaboration with director Mike Nichols both on stage and in features and is responsible for creating some of cinema's most seminal looks. From the contemporary looks of "Pretty Poison" (1968) and "The Owl and the Pussycat" (1970) to the mid-20th century sophistication of "The Mambo Kings" (1992) and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999) to the outlandish costumes of "The Birdcage" (1996), Roth's designs have been exceptional examples of historical and social accuracy in costuming.
