There are many reasons a lot of us are eagerly awaiting Ava DuVernay’s big-screen version of Madeleine L’Engle’s fantasy classic, “A Wrinkle in Time” (due in theaters March 9). Here’s just one of them: the elaborate, dreamy costumes, designed by Paco Delgado (a recent Oscar nominee for “The Danish Girl” and “Les Misérables”). Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling play three celestial beings (known, respectively, as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who dress as celestial beings do — fantastically. Just imagine these looks on an enormous screen. I can’t wait.
