But I agree Famke's X2 look was her most stunning turn as the Phoenix. Her hair in X3 just...pissed me off to no end. It was clearly just sitting on her head, and begging to be tugged off easily. It was about as bad as Jessica Alba's in the second FF film.
FOX's make-up dept. do not excel with wig selections. Ever.
Which is why I'm really upset that Singer brought back Louise Mingenbach for costume design (he announced it on Twitter about a month ago).
Aside from the make-up and hair being completely dreadful, the costuming was absolutely atrocious. And I'm not just talking about the superhero/villain costumes. I'm talking about the god-awful clothing that everyone had to wear. It made them all look so homely and not charismatic at all.
