It was reported that Sarah Burton created Angelina Jolie’s iconic horn headpiece for Maleficent, but this has now been refuted

The Maleficent special-effects make-up artist – Rick Baker – had previously told Allure magazine that Alexander McQueen's creative director had made the horn headpiece, but the brand has come out to squash these claims.

"It was a skullcap that she could slip on," Baker told the American beauty title. "The horns were wrapped in leather and were made by Sarah [Burton] at Alexander McQueen. But that's a different story."

However, yesterday, a Disney spokesperson confirmed that "London milliner Justin Smith was responsible for the design of Angelina Jolie's unique leather-wrapped horns."

Maleficent hits theatres worldwide on May 30
