Silks and rhinestones, organza and cashmere, feathers and precious stones - every girl dreamed of trying on these dresses at least once, as soon as she saw them on the screen. And in vain! Here are 5 of the most adorable movie dresses that have given actresses a nervous breakdown.
Snow White and the Huntsman - 2, Charlize Theron
Costume author: Colin Atwood.
This stunning costume was remembered by many who watched the movie "Snow White and the Huntsman -2". But few people know that he was "stunning" in the truest sense of the word. According to the author of the costume, it was incredibly heavy. To work out at least a frame in it, Charlize had to take short breaks and go out to breathe in the fresh air. The process of building this splendor was also laborious: the feathers were sewn by hand and it took 2 weeks to make the whole cloak and about 30 thousand dollars.
Cinderella by Lily James
Costume author: Sandy Powell.
It took the costume designer about 4,000 hours to create this gorgeous blue dress. The fact is that for each scene its own dress was created - shorter, more authentic, lighter, etc. There are 8 versions in total. Each cost the studio $ 12,000, and each took 250 meters of fabric. In general, about 5 km of lines were spent!
For actress Lily James, the most difficult test was to withstand the corset and crinoline of the outfit, which were made of steel. She put on this luxury for 25 minutes. She also had to barely breathe!
According to Lily, the most difficult scenes for her were the dance scenes with the prince at the ball, because her partner constantly stepped on the hem and each time she had to start all over again.
The Seventh Son by Julianne Moore
Costume author: Jacqueline West.
Actress Juliana Moore recalls that after trying on a gorgeous dress from Jacqueline West for the first time, she realized that she simply would not be able to move. All dressers had to work hard to lighten the heavy chain mail, corset and other components of the dress. But even after all this, Juliana remembered this dress with horror. Every movement brought her incredible suffering. After all, even the light version of the outfit weighed decently - more than 30 kg!
"The Hunger Games. And the flames will burst out ", Jennifer Lawrence
Costume author: designer Tex Saverio.
Even before the release of the picture, costume designer Trisha Summerville said that all the outfits for the film will be created by the fashion house Alexander McQueen, and she will create only a wedding dress for Jennifer Lawrence in collaboration with Indonesian designer Tex Saverio, who creates dresses for Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian. Jennifer Lawrence was delighted with the transforming dress, the elements of which are specially made like tongues of flame. But as soon as she put on it, she realized that acting in it would be sheer torment. And she was right. Several times the actress almost broke her neck, not to mention the fact that the constant bruises when falling did not give her rest. The bulky chiffon and organza structure was terribly heavy, and besides. Every time after filming, Jennifer felt exhausted and insanely exhausted.
The Brothers Grimm, Monica Bellucci
Costume author: Gabriella Pisuccini.
Monica Bellucci in Terry Gilliam's tale played a witch, the prototype of which was the bloody Countess Elizabeth Bathory. And to create color, the most beautiful and dangerous crimson dress was invented for the witch. However, Monica had a hard time with him. In addition to the fact that the dress itself was very heavy, as it was made of brocade and velvet, it was also accompanied by a train, which greatly interfered with the actress when walking. But accessories became the real test for the actress. Huge earrings and a very heavy crown made the process of taking pictures simply unbearable. I had to take breaks, since Monica literally could not bear this weight for a long time.
