Mice Could Never Pull Off The Movie Version Of Cinderella’s Dress

Those cute little mice whip up a beautiful dress, but this variant might be out of their reach. In Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, which opens next month, the wedding dress designed by Sandy Powell draws on the original, but with updated touches that make it worthy of any bride walking down the aisle today.

The beige silk organza gown took 15 people over 500 hours to complete and features a dozen layers of fabric. To keep it looking light and airy, they used crepeline silk, printed polyester, and iridescent nylon. The wedding dress was so complex that only one version was made for the movie. Her ballgown, however, was duplicated 9 times with each using 270 yards of fabric and 10,000 Swarvovski crystals. Those dresses each took 18 people 500 hours to complete.

See more pictures after the break.
