Opening in theaters tomorrow, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN is the darker of this year’s two projects based on the popular fairy tale involving a beautiful princess, an evil queen, a charming prince and a cottage full of dwarfs. Unlike the ‘campy’ MIRROR MIRROR, this incarnation is a “more traditional” telling of the story and has the huntsman charged with taking Snow into the woods for execution, then becoming her protector and mentor. Directed by RUPERT SANDERS, the cast includes KRISTEN STEWART, CHRIS HEMSWORTH, CHARLIZE THERON, TOBY JONES, IAN McSHANE, NICK FROST and SAM CLAFLIN.
Nominated for nine Academy Awards and winner of three, costume designer COLLEEN ATWOOD is largely responsible for the stylish and inventive look of the film. She takes her work very seriously and produces some amazing wardrobes. During our recent interview, she talked about the painstaking attention-to-detail that went into creating the clothes for Snow White. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
