Congratulations to Marlene Stewart, costume designer

Costume designer Marlene Stewart was honored last night with an award for career achievement in film at the Costume Designers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton. You've seen her work in early Madonna music videos and in such films as "The Doors," "JFK," "Gone In Sixty Seconds," "Ali," "21 Grams," "Tropic Thunder" and "Night At the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian." Here at LA Observed, readers should remember when Stewart gave LAO's Judy Graeme an exclusive video tour of the popular LACMA exhibit, "Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700-1915." Here it is again.

At the awards, Trish Summerville won this year's award for excellence in contemporary film for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." More winners
