The new live-action version of the villainous “Cruella” brings an admirable and passionate palette of costumes, which were developed by Oscar-winning actress Jenny Beaven (“Mad Max: The Road to the Fury”).
And of the more than 45 costumes worn by actress Emma Stone on stage, one has become her favorite – precisely because it directly symbolizes the picturesque character of the villainous Cruella De Vil.
During a closed-door event, which CinePOP was one of the guests of, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that her favorite dress is one of the most unusual in the whole movie, in which the character appears from inside the movie. ‘a garbage truck, dressed in a garment consisting of a light corset, with endless layers of patchwork syrup and cutouts:
“My favorite outfit, which is absolutely crazy, is the dress I’m wearing on the garbage truck, because there was a 40 foot tail. And it wasn’t attached to the dress, because obviously I couldn’t move anywhere, so they added that to the room at the last minute when I got in the garbage truck to film this part. . And it was just a phenomenon – I mean, nothing you can use even from a distance in real life. It was so amazing, to be honest! And oh, there’s also this crazy huge red skirt, which I wear when I get on the roof of the car and cover it all over the place.
The costumes in the film have tight fitting cuts that emanate from ’70s fashion, with the unique features of designers Galliano and Vivienne Westwood. And according to the actresses, dressing each of the pieces was a particular challenge, precisely because of the patterned structure of the dresses. Even going to the bathroom, the experience became an event, due to the complexity of some parts, as actress Emma Thompson reveals – in a humorous tone:
“Did you know that there were people who pulled corset strings to close these dresses!” It was very intense. Peeing was difficult and involved a team of people. The shoes were also a real challenge, because in real life, I don’t wear anything with a heel higher than a flat!
Stone took it a step further and finished the co-star’s storyline, detailing how the process works:
“And oh, I always wore a lot of wigs, which made me look a lot taller than I actually am. I also had to keep moving from place to place walking sideways and normally I had. three dalmatians at my feet. And yes, the underwear was an event! The pieces had a great structure, like Marie Antoinette in that silver dress at the end of the movie. We had costumes that were very dramatic in their forms, because they were very curved ”.
With the reopening of certain networks of cinemas, the feature film was presented last Thursday (28) on the national circuit, in 700 screens, as revealed by FilmeB.

Revision | CRUELLA is a visual blast that gives us the real Disney villain
‘Cruella’, the new live-action film presents the story of the legendary and most iconic – and notoriously fashionable – Disney villain Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s London in the midst of the punk rock revolution, the film features a young con artist named Estella (Emma Stone), a smart and creative girl determined to make a name for herself through her designs. She befriends a couple of young thieves and together they make a life in the streets of London. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion caught the attention of Baroness Von Hellman (Emma Thompson), a terribly chic and spooky fashion legend. But their relationship sets off a series of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her rebellious side and become the wicked, elegant, revenge-oriented Cruella.
Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Emily Beecham and Kirby Howell-Baptiste complete the cast.
Craig Gillespie, from the remake of ‘The Hour of Amazement’, takes over from a script by Tony McNamara (‘The Favorite’).
