    The costume designer of Dangerous Liaisons was james Achenson, and it was he who won the Oscar for best costume design, Gwen Russell is credited as the costume maker, not costume designer. it’s still important, but she was not the designer unlike what that article states.
    Sorry for being such a nitpicker.
