'Descendants 2' Costume Designer Kara Saun Talks Designing Mal's 'Princess' Attire (Exclusive)

'Descendants 2' Costume Designer Kara Saun Talks Designing Mal's 'Princess' Attire (Exclusive)

Dove Cameron always dons gorgeous costumes while playing Mal in Descendants, and as it turns out, Descendants 2 is no different — though her costuming definitely is.

Dove is so fun because she’s like a princess,” costume designer Kara Saun told JJJ of designing Mal’s wardrobe for the second movie. “It’s all very embellished fabrics and very delicate and all colors you would not expect to see Mal in. Every time you see her she’s literally in a different outfit.”

Kara also told us how she created a story with Mal that can be told even through her costuming.

“Here she is now trying to really be the princess and fit in,” she explained, “and still have that self-realization like…is this really me? Is this who I am? You can see in her blonde hair that she still has lavender tips because she just couldn’t get the purple out. To me it just symbolized no matter how hard you try you still keep who you are about you.”

She also spoke about how Mal’s wardrobe shows her transformation throughout the film.

“Throughout the movie you see the transformation in her style from being the princess to going back to the isle. She’s grown and she’s transformed.”

Dove has said that she admires her character’s “vulnerability and strength,” and we can’t wait to see that reflected through Mal’s costuming.

Dove Cameron Teases Her 'First Single' on Instagram

Dove Cameron Teases Her 'First Single' on Instagram

Descendants 2 star Dove Cameron promised us new music sometime this year, but it may be coming even soon than we anticipated!

In a new Instagram posted late last night, Dove posted a video of her Bose speakers trembling from the bass.

“when your 1st single has so much bass that even the speaker gets faint,” she captioned the (soundless) video.

Her fans consequently erupted.

“WHEN?” one demanded to know.

“StOP TEASING US LIKE THIS DOVE” another cried.

We’re right there with them! We can’t wait to hear your new single, Dove!

when your 1st single has so much bass that even the speaker gets faint ????????????

Dove Cameron Says She Doesn't Get Cast As Bubbly Characters (Exclusive)

Dove Cameron Says She Doesn't Get Cast As Bubbly Characters (Exclusive)

Dove Cameron isn’t just one thing, let’s get that clear.

The 21-year-old Descendants 2 star is certainly a very happy, positive person, but she has different facets to her personality – just like all of us.

We recently asked Dove which character she’d play if she didn’t play Mal, and her answer may surprise you.

“Uma,” she told JJJ. “I have such an edge to me. No one casts me as bubbly characters. I’m always the edgy girl. So I just have to feed that.”

Between Mal in Descendants, Amber in Hairspray, and even Holly in Shameless (remember her?!), we see what Dove means.

It’s funny because we associate her with sunshine and rainbows mostly. But we love learning more about the side maybe we don’t see on screen.

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

Dove Cameron Teased That She Changed Up Her Hair & Her Fans Have Lost All Chill

Dove Cameron has some of the prettiest hair in the game, from her stunning blonde locks to her pink tresses — and now she’s switching it up again.

The only problem is, she hasn’t posted a picture of her hair change, and to her fans (which definitely includes us) this is a BIG PROBLEM.

“k i did a thing and now i’m going to need alllll the hair treatments. hit me widdem,” she tweeted yesterday.

Shortly after, she tweeted: “mirage is ultimate hair inspo,” accompanied by a picture of Mirage from The Incredibles, who has long white-blonde hair.

“SHOW US,” her fans are screaming in tandem. She’s gone ultra-blonde in the past, so some fans are wondering if she went another direction altogether.

SHOW US DOVE. Please?

We are taking inspiration from your favorite stars with every different hue imaginable to bring you your summer hair possibilities.

Enjoy!! (But if you’re going to dye it at home, make sure you have an adult to help you!)

Dove Cameron Reveals the First Thing She Loved About Thomas Doherty (Exclusive)

Before Dove Cameron fell in love with Thomas Doherty, there was something in particular that struck her about him.

The 21-year-old actress recently talked to JJJ about what she first noticed about her Descendants 2 co-star, and now-boyfriend.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Dove Cameron

“The first thing I loved about Thomas…honestly, that’s a really hard question to answer because I’m dating him now,” she told us. “So I think the first thing I maybe noticed positively – because I didn’t love him for a while – was that he was very…every conversation you had with him was very intimate. He saw through me immediately.”

Aw! How sweet is that? She recently told us the whole cast and crew noticed their chemistry before they even became a couple.

Dove also gushed over her other new co-stars – China Anne McClain and Dylan Playfair.

“First thing I loved about China – her and I have known each other for many years and we clicked immediately,” she said. “We’ve always been friends. She’s very happy and I’m very happy.”

“First thing I loved about Dylan was how immediately connected we were,” Dove told JJJ. “We’re kindred spirits. We talk for hours about philosophy and travel, and he was a very fast friend.”

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

If we’re being real, when it comes to the teen drama Gossip Girl, there are likely more people who are fans of the character Blair Waldorf than Serena van der Woodsen — and actress Dove Cameron is no exception.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Dove.

“whEre haS sHe beEn *serenA* AND WHO AM I,” she tweeted to her followers yesterday, suggesting that she was binge-watching the show enough to have memorized the opening monologue.

“WHY DO WE CARE ABOUT SERENA,” she tweeted again not long after, “NO ONE LIKES SERENA.”

OMG we have to know which episode prompted that response! (It could have been so many.)

Don’t worry, D – we’re also on team B.

Dove Cameron's 'Descendants' Audition Was So Secretive She Didn't Even Know The Name of the Project!

Dove Cameron's 'Descendants' Audition Was So Secretive She Didn't Even Know The Name of the Project!

We already know that Dove Cameron is the perfect actor to play Mal, daughter of Maleficent in Descendants.

However, when she went to audition for the project, she had no idea what the project was!

“When I first read the script for Descendants, everything was top secret. The project was under wraps, so they didn’t even tell me that they wanted me to audition!” Dove says.

She adds, “All they said to me was, ‘Come to Disney Channel.’”

It was so secretive that she actually thought she lost her job.

“I was petrified that I’d lost my job. I thought I’d done something wrong. I thought, ‘Mickey’s going to reprimand me.’ But he didn’t.”

Whew!

“When I got to Disney Channel, they took me into an office and they plopped a massive script down in front of me,” Dove continues. “They said, ‘Read this and tell us what you think, but the script can’t leave the building.’ I read it and I was immediately mesmerised by the story. I knew I had to be part of the movie.”

Descendants 2 will premiere on July 21st.
