Why Fashion Fans Will Love Maleficent

When you have an iconic actress (Angelina Jolie) playing an iconic storybook character (Maleficent, of Sleeping Beauty fame), you need a wow-worthy costume to match. We’d say Disney nailed it. And there’s so much for the fashion aficionado to love, too! From the intricately detailed collars to the hauntingly beautiful jewelry, Maleficent’s modern look is a brilliant marriage of fantasy and couture.
Rob Goodwin was one of three specialists brought in to work on the Maleficent costume. “We were there to really give it a harder edge, sort of couture look,” Goodwin says. “We wanted to steer away from some of the clichés that you can sometimes get in fantasy films, and make her attractive, yet scary and relevant.”
“We tried to exaggerate certain parts of her bone structure and anatomy to again make her look super human or other-than human.”
“They brought Manuel Albarran over from Spain, who is excellent at making armor and body pieces. He made a spine that then formed into a collar, which felt almost lizard-like.”

    • The story of "Cinderella" follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming "Kit." Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.

Maleficent. Disney. Angelina Jolie. Next Summer.

Angel Amor as Costume Assistant for Angelina Jolie Wardrobe.

From Disney comes ‘Maleficent’—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
