To be…wait for it…the Wicked Stepmother?!?!?! For those clothes? Absolutely!


cinderella-wicked-stepmother-costume-sketch 2015

You might remember that dievca mentioned that Cinderella is her favorite Fairy Tale.  And after some challenging times, she and a girlfriend made their way through the 42nd Street tourist craziness to see the new Disney Cinderella….(uhh, don’t do it — it’s a chaotic theatre~)

Cinderell's gowndievca used to want to be Cinderella.  she’s changed her mind — Cinderella’s Ball  Gown was boring.  (Although the two Asian Ladies next to dievca went GaGa for it… hilarious)

dievca doesn’t want to be Cinderella, she wants to be the Wicked Stepmother!  dievca wants Cate Blanchett’s costumes, ALL of them, especially the Ball Gown!

The costumes are the work of legendary costume designer and three-time Oscar winner Sandy Powell. She took inspiration from various 1940s silhouettes and actresses like Joan Crawford for the perfectly coiffed Stepmother’s looks. Powell wanted Blanchett’s outfits to look like a 1940s period film that was set in the 19th century.  They completed the look with perfectly pined-up and curled hair and heavier eye make-up, plus deep red lipstick.

All pieces dievca WANTS!

      Goodness, the work that went into these pieces is amazing. I think the closest I could get is with a Vivienne Westwood corset dress or perhaps Dolce and Gabbana.
