These Sketches Make Us Love the Costumes of Cinderella Even More

From the Disney Style Blog:

What do you get when you mix fairy tale fashion with the styles of the 1940’s and 1950’s?With costume designer Sandy Powell at the helm, the result is a unique and rich variety of costumes that create the world of the new, live-action Cinderella.


Since Cinderella isn’t set in a particular time period, Powell was able to take inspiration from these different decades of fashion to design costumes that are both fantastical and fabulous. While Ella’s stepmother oozes Hollywood glamour, Ella’s gown is reminiscent of the iconic storybook gown from the animated Cinderella. The combination makes the film colorful and magical in unexpected ways.


We’ve been able to see a sampling of the wardrobe thanks to the trailer, but these gorgeous, original costume sketches make us appreciate Powell’s work even more. Take a look!
