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

Looking at the previews, Charlize Theron’s incarnation of The Evil Queen in “Snow White and the Huntsman” (in theaters today) is quite dark. Academy Award winning costume designer Colleen Atwood wanted her to look the part as well.

By no means do I ever try to pretend I know all there is about fashion, but isn’t that the beauty of it? Inspirations come to me daily, from people, colors, moods, photography, even children!
