Revealed: Cinderella's wedding dress designed by Sandy Powell
For the upcoming live-action Disney movie starring Lily James
Disney's upcoming live-action version of Cinderella has been all over the media this week - announcing a new collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, and some covetable 'glass slippers' (set to hit Dubai's Level Shoe District soon) designed by the likes of Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, and Jimmy Choo among others.
Now, a first look at the wedding gown worn by Cinderella, a role that has been snagged by Downton Abbey's Lily James, has been revealed thanks to a new editorial with Vanity Fair magazine. The princess-worthy gown has been designed by costume designer Sandy Powell and features a beautiful nude-coloured silhouette, with floral embroidery peppering the full skirt and the neckline.
“Creating the wedding dress was a challenge. Rather than try to make something even better than the ball gown, I had to do something completely different and simple,” Powell told Vanity Fair. “I wanted the whole effect to be ephemeral and fine, so we went with an extreme-lined shape bodice with a long train.”
