After all this (long) rambling about women's rights (it was women's day yesterday! I had to mention it somewhere), let's talk about the costume in the film. It is absolutely stunning. I didn't know the costume designer from before, Eiko Ishioka, and I also found out that she died in January this year. She designed the costumes for some iconic films such as Bram Stocker's Dracula directed by Francis Ford Coppola and for which she won an Academy Award. Also, she designed The Cell with Jennifer Lopez. Her work on the stage includes Madam Butterfly, Cirque du Soleil and other musicals.
Mirror, Mirror's costumes remind me in many ways to theatre costumes. They are bold, big with expanded shapes and silhouettes. If you were to put those dresses on stage, they would work the same or even better than in the film. The attention to detail is also admirable; the flower embroideries on Snow's dresses are amazing and the shapes and textures of the Evil Queen (Played by Julia Roberts) are ingenious and beautful. I can't wait until the film comes out!
