Colleen Atwood, costume designer extraordinaire, known for her amazing work from Edward Scissorhands to Dark Shadows and now Snow White and the Huntsman, also three – times Oscar winner (until now) opened up about her work with the latest Universal Pictures flick, coming to a theater near you this Friday.
Designing for Charlize Theron (Queen Ravenna), Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Chris Hemsworth has been a Paris Haute Couture – like adventure, judging by the looks of the sublime intricate embroidery, the myriad of leather sequins and various feathers.

Colleen also designed the army’s armored costumes (count some 600 costumes), but the most impressive sartorial work was performed on Queen Ravenna’s dresses, complimented by Cathy Waterman jewelry. She even said, in her wwd interview, that Stewart’s Snow White servant girl’s tunic was made in 25 versions for the special needs of her physical role. Also, Charlize Theron’s movie character needed three versions of the same feathered and winged costume for a certain scene.
What’s next for Colleen? The Thin Man with Johnny Depp (undoubtedly directed by Tim Burton). Can’t wait!
