In the spirit of the upcoming Academy Awards on March 2, 2014, Mediarun Digital Marketing, a UK-based digital consulting agency, has put together this fabulous infographic documenting every dress worn by the Best Actress Oscar winners from 1929 through 2013. This infographic was definitely a labor of love per Paul North, Mediarun’s Head of Content & Strategy.
We don’t often feature work of this type on our blog but it was one of those ideas we had that just wouldn’t let go, despite not having an ideal home in a client’s content strategy. We therefore decided to do it anyway and present it as a case study or portfolio piece that demonstrates the kind of thing we do for fashion brands. We wanted to do something to explore the fashion aspect of the Oscars and thought it would be great to have a poster that displays as many of the dresses as possible. Pretty early on, we realised we had to limit it to just the Best Actress winners in order to fit them into a reasonable file size while making the dresses large and detailed enough to be enjoyed.
What’s nice is that they’ve asked for assistance in keeping this infographic accurate.
We’ve done our best within the time we could spend on this but many are still marked as ‘unknown’, due to the scarcity of this information. If anyone who sees this can tell us which ones we’re missing, we’ll happily update and re-release the infographic at a later date.
