The most anticipated movie of the Summer is the upcoming film, Disney Cruella! It stars Actress Emma Stone and Emma Thompson. First thing that I noticed was the impeccable styling in the movie and it intrigued me so much that I did a little research on who did the costuming. I found out that English costume designer Jenny Beavan had the pleasure of working on the costumes and she has done a phenomenal job so far from what I can see from all the images! She’s a two-time Oscar winner too!
Beavan is well-known for styling Charlize Theron from the movie Mad Max: Fury Road. She also worked on the Disney film, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. So she knows whimsy fashion well and has worked closely with fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. I enjoyed seeing something fresh with the punk-rock looks and all the leather details. Plus Cruella’s black & white iconic messy hairdo that they kept true to the 1960’s version. The movie is set in the London in the seventies. Check out a few images inside and don’t forget to check out the flick on May 28th!
The Walt Disney Company has released a new trailer and poster for its all-new live-action feature film “Cruella,” starring Academy Award®-winners Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, directed by Craig Gillespie. The film will release simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access for a one time additional fee on Friday, May 28.
Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
Disney’s “Cruella” is directed by Craig Gillespie (“I Tonya”) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. It was produced by Andrew Gunn (“Freaky Friday”), Marc Platt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Kristin Burr (“Christopher Robin”), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar®- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “A Room with a View”) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
