Colleen Atwood Talks More About Kristen’s SWATH Costume w/ MTV

“I’ve seen actors find their characters in so many different ways in my life. I think they don’t realize they’ve already found it, but the moment when they put on hair and makeup and the costume, they’re there, they’ve arrived,” Atwood said of watching actors try on her designs for the first time. “Sometimes because the costume goes on last after hair and makeup and everything, that feels like the hero, but it’s really the [actor].”
One of Stewart’s most intricate costumes is her armor, which Atwood said they wanted to tell a story on its own. “There are a lot of messages in her armor. The concept is [Snow White] comes to a place in the story and decides to go to battle and lead her future people,” Atwood said. “She doesn’t have time to have armor made, so we took elements of different armor to compile a look and so [Stewart] could also do action in it.”


Kristen Talks About Charlize in Vogue UK

Kristen talks about Charlize for Ms. Theron’s cover story in the May 2012 issueVogue UK:

“[Charlize] can do that switch-it-on-and-off thing. She is so tuned in to what she’s doing when she’s working that when she comes out of it and is all lightness and laughter, it can be almost a shock.”

Rupert Sanders agreed with Kristen and jokingly added, “[Charlize] has the mouth of a sailer -and the entire crew loved that, watching her being lowered into a vat of crude oil for one scene, screaming ‘You f*cking c*nts!’ at the top of her voice. It was very endearing.”

Charlize says of her character, the evil Queen Ravenna, “I don’t need people to be sympathetic to Ravenna. I just want them to understand what made her the way she is.”

The issue of British Vogue is on UK newsstands now and will be available in the US in a few weeks.
