Why: Jacqueline Durran's designs for the cinematic adaptation of the Tolstoy classic—so good they yielded a Banana Republic collab—were nothing short of mesmerizing. The furs! The bustles! The veiled hats! Paired with loads of glittering Chanel jewelry and influenced by '50s-era Dior couture, the wardrobe reminded us of just why we love period pieces so much (and why Keira Knightley ought to star in all of them).
Nominated: Indeed, and this marks Durran's third Academy Award nod to date. Our money's on her for the win.
