Mirror Mirror actress Lily Collins, who plays Snow White in the upcoming Tarsem Singh directed movie, has given a little insight into what went into her costumes in the film. Lily admitted to Just Jared that she spent a lot of time getting ready in the mornings and became very close with the person who had to help her dress.
Collins explained, “It’s funny, some took 20-25 minutes to get into. We had it down to an art though at the end of it. Total corsets every day, I had someone help me get dressed every morning, her and I became really close. We would use that time as relaxing time, even though it was time that I was being strapped in. Just the two of us would be getting ready and no one could rush me.”
She added, “I had to run, sword fight, wrestle, do all these sort of crazy things in these outfits so they became sort of a second skin by the end of it. I knew how to manoeuvre myself around. By the end of shooting I would just collapse on the floor or have a stool put under me to sit down. By the end of everything I knew how it all worked out.”
Lily continued, “I never fell once while running in the heals and the dresses, which I am really proud of. I’m the kind of person who falls going up the stairs, so I was really surprised I never did.”
Mirror Mirror is released in the US today and will be released in the UK on April 2.
