THE COSTUMES OF CINDERELLA

Posted on 06 March 2019 By Rose Mulready

Alexei Ratmansky's Cinderella, with its stunning design by Jérôme Kaplan, has costumes fit for a fairytale - even the Ugly Stepsisters are pretty glam! We sneaked into our atelier, where the costumes are being spruced up for our upcoming Melbourne season, to zoom in on the bewitching details.

Cinderella can't believe her luck to find herself in this dazzling golden gown.

The Stepmother's sumptuous cloaks both signal her indulgence and amplify her rage.

Cinderella goes in rags, but her stepsisters, Skinny and Dumpy, get lavish trimmings even to their dressing gowns. And knee-socks. They get knee-socks!

Dumpy's feeling pretty fine in the dress she wears to the Prince's ball. How could he resist?

The Sun leads the Planets when they come to whisk Cinders to the ball. Would Peter Allen try to make off with this outfit? We think so.
