Here’s How Cruella’s Costume Designer Made “Dalmatian” Fur
There are many reasons to watch Cruella, the live-action film starring Emma Stone as the titular character and adapted from Dodie Smith’s novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians and Disney’s 101 Dalmatians franchise. Mainly the glitzy and fabulous costumes.
Set in 1970s London during the punk rock era, the story centers on the backstory of Estella, an orphan and aspiring fashion designer who, with the help of her grifter buddies, Jasper (Joel Fry) and Horace (Paul Walter Hauser), lands a job at the posh department store Liberty London and eventually gets hired by Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson). Sartorial hijinks ensue, including a guerrilla fashion show and a haute couture dress made entirely of moths, in her journey to becoming the full-fledged, dalmatian-wielding villain Cruella de Vil.
