Knightley also praised the work of costume designer Jacqueline Durran. "Those costumes are so full of symbolism. We wanted death to be a major [thing], so [Anna's] surrounded by fur, dead birds in her hair, diamonds that... could cut [her] any second. Sex is a massive part of it so some of the dresses were actually made out of bedsheets. That's what I love about Jacqueline. The dresses tell the story as much as everything else does."
