Hugh Jackman as Valjean in "Les Miserables." Costume design by Paco Delgado.
Delgado said Jean Valjean's wardrobe reflects his slow climb from prisoner to success. "At the beginning, he is a convict with almost no expectations, and he has texture in every sense -- in his rough clothes and his beard," Delgado said. "Little by little, he starts getting more sophisticated and socially accepted, and we have less texture and more fine materials. In terms of color, he comes into a much more sophisticated palette."
