Lily James: See Cinderella's Wedding Gown NOW!

Lily James: See Cinderella's Wedding Gown NOW!

Lily James looks every bit of the picture perfect bride in these first look portraits of her in Cinderella‘s wedding gown.

Costume designer Sandy Powell chatted with Vanity Fair about the to-be princess’s attire for her wedding day to the Prince (Richard Madden) and just how much hard work went into it.

“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,” Sandy shared. “I wanted the whole effect to be ephemeral and fine, so we went with an extreme-lined shape bodice with a long train. Cinderella wins the Prince’s heart through her goodness, so I wanted to show this through her clothes. I wanted her to stay modest and pure even though she was going to be a part of royalty.”

The final dress, which took 16 people and 550 hours (over a month) to complete is a beige colored, long-sleeve, silk organza gown with a floral print to represent the simplicity of the princess-to-be.

For the groom, Sandy dished on his look, “The silhouette and the shape of the shoulders is from the original animation, but we created more of a fitted look and dressed him in less masculine colors such as blue, green, and white.”

    To Sandy Powell and all others who created the costumes: We just came back from the first showing (10:00 am) of this film. There were about 150 people of every age imaginable. Everyone GASPED when they saw this gown and several people cried out, “She looks just like Grace Kelly!” When the film was over, everyone applauded, which is so rare, today. And in the loo, the ladies were gushing over both the ball gown and this gown, trying to decide ‘which’ was the favourite. I’m telling the truth: if I were decades younger and getting married, I’d begin sewing this dress for myself, and then would frame it upon our ceremony. Well done, everyone, job well done! Thank you for making the movie so, so magical with your costumes for “Rose and Daisy”, et. al.
