Check out the Beautiful Costumes of Beautiful Creatures
Wardrobe can be a key component in the success or failure of a film, and that's especially true in a project like Beautiful Creatures. Check out this video chat with Jeffrey Kurland, who had the immense task of capturing the physical essence of the film's "extraordinary" characters through their costumes.
"It was an interesting job to say the least," Kurland tells MTV. "The characters are extraordinary because they range in emotion, not just in their physicality, but in their emotion. They exude a presence that I needed to capture physically on screen."
The story is set primarily in contemporary times, but the Gothic tale borrows heavily from the past, wardrobe included. "As far as what costumes say, they tell a story," Kurland adds. "They tell a visual story. This is just a sampling but by no means [all] you're going to see when you see the movie. Hopefully you will enjoy that."
Check out the flick in theaters on February 13, 2013.
A supernatural love story set in the South, Beautiful Creatures tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena (Alice Englert), a mysterious new girl. Together they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history, and their town. Oscar nominee Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, P.S. I Love You) directs from his adaptation of the first novel in the best-selling series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro), newcomer Alice Englert, Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt), Emmy Rossum (TV's "Shameless"), and Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Howard's End, Sense and Sensibility).
Margo Martindale plays Lena's Aunt Del, who helps to protect her from the family's dark side, and Zoey Deutch portrays Emily Asher, Ethan's ex-girlfriend and the ringleader of the high school's popular clique that conspires against Lena. The film co-stars Kyle Gallner and Thomas Mann.
