Academy Award winning costume designer Colleen Atwood wanted her to look the part as well. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlize Theron’s evil queen costumes for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” called for hundreds of hand-cut rooster feathers, thousands of iridescent beetle wings from Thailand and one particularly imposing crown.The outfits represented a host of firsts for Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood.
From the leather piping on the pleats of the queen’s wedding gown to the gauzy green metal trim on the beetle-wing dress, the nine-time Oscar nominee and three-time winner experimented with materials for director Rupert Sanders’ dark take on the classic fairy tale.
