i think black widow has the most potential to be “best dressed” because she’s so good at disguises, but i suspect her personal taste is probably more like “comfortable and blends into a crowd.”
there are a lot of characters in the MCU now, but as far as i remember the best dressed is either pepper potts or loki (or possibly frigga). pepper clearly has a lot of interest in fashion, and a bank balance to back it up. loki is vain, has shapeshifting powers and wears a lot of sparkly armour, BUT the armour we see him wearing is probably ~official prince armour~ or something, whereas frigga’s clothes are more like really expensive, classy, formal asgardian gowns. so i’m stuck between those three characters, i think.

i’ve read vanishingly few fashion/costume books and can really only recommend The Internet and Wikipedia. (sorry.) in terms of fashion-fashion stuff, the documentaries “the september issue” and “bill cunningham new york” are both interesting?

i assume you mean my blog?? i haven’t posted on livejournal in years. but in answer to your question: i wrote a two-part blog post about costume design and worldbuilding in the HP movies (related to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie) but i haven’t actually gone through all of the individual films and reviewed them.
