|SECOND STAR ENTERTAINMEMT|
Congratulations to Colleen Atwood for her 2015 Golden Globe for Costume Design for Into the Woods. i personally loved the film, and her costumes. She wanted to create a sort of timeless fairytale world, and i think she did. There are modern elements, and she also incorporated elements from the 30s, 40s, and 60s. i also love that she made the costumes her own, she had her own unique vision. So often with into the woods, people get stuck with the designs and concepts created for the original broadway production, but i do think that this film thrived off of having it's own identity. Some stand outs for me were Cinderella's gold ball gown, The Witch after transformation, and the Wicked Step mother, and Ugly Step Sisters. What i love most about Atwood is her use of different textures and patterns, and the little details she puts into everything. the other thing i love about Atwood is she collaborator, she was very open about her collaboration with Meryl (who actually studied costume design in college) and Depp (who is notorious for coming up with interesting characters, and often sketches his vision of the character he is portraying) She has such an understanding of the relationship between actor and costume, and it shows in her designs. Here are some side by sides of her design sketches next to the finished costumes as they appeared in the film.
