MTV spoke with the Academy Award winning costume designer, Colleen Atwood about her collaboration with Kristen Stewart regarding the costumes worn by Snow White.
Atwood tells MTV that she transfers Stewart from "Twilight" teen to fairy tale titan."
Atwood further states, "She isn't playing a really fluffy kind of princess or anything, but she really, I think, is having fun getting to wear those kinds of things and she looks great in them," Colleen explained of the period pieces.
"I think for an actor, getting to put stuff like that on for movies is more work because it's not in the comfort zone of a pair of jeans or sneakers. But it takes you to a different place in your mind and your body. She's been great to collaborate with."
"As for the suit of armor we've seen in so many set snaps, it isn't real metal, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a certain heft to it. "It's not comfortable by any means. It probably weighs about 15 pounds. It's half her body weight," Colleen joked."
