The Danish Girl is visually stunning thanks to Eve Stewart, an Oscar-nominated production designer who has been working in film, television, and theater for 20+ years. Her latest project, film about the story of Lili Elbe, the first trans woman to ever undergo gender confirmation surgery, was a masterpiece.
She designed Gerda’s and Lilly’s apartment in Copenhagen using lots of royal blues and greys, and the Parisian apartment, more feminine, with warm soft colors—golds, saffron yellows and pinks.
Quote from the interview with Eve Stewart “I read and the more I heard stories and anecdotes about Lili, she was a piece of art for her own sake. She became her own creation. The background as a painting was just to support that”.
