Five years have passed since Angelina Jolie gave life to one of the biggest Disney villains. This October 18, the second part of Maleficent returns to theaters, the memorable witch of the classic Sleeping Beauty, which premiered in 1959 and had its new version in 2014

Siempre Mujer attended the preview for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which was filmed at Pinewood Studios and at outdoor locations in the UK, with the addition of Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith. In the first installment we learned about the events that hardened Maleficent's heart and led her to cast a curse on the newborn Princess Aurora. In the second part, Maleficent and the future Queen, Aurora, will join new allies, such as Prince Phillip, and face new enemies, such as Queen Ingrith, in their fight to protect the forest and the magical creatures that inhabit it.. A fantasy and action story in which the ultimate goal is to unite the world of humans and fairies.

From her first appearance, the character played by Angelina Jolie captivated us all. And without a doubt in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil the same thing will happen to you, the personification, costumes and makeup of the characters in the film spell us! In a press release, Disney explained that costume designer Ellen Mirojnick ("The Greatest Showman," "Behind the Candelabra") created different looks for each of the three women who form the heart of the story. In addition to the numerous costumes designed for Maleficent, Aurora and Queen Ingrith, she was also in charge of dressing nearly 600 extras. But there is no doubt that the looks Maleficent wore were our favorites. Here we share some of them, as well as various details of their wardrobe.We wouldn't be surprised if you chose one of them to dress up as Halloween!

The designer explained that Maleficent, being the strongest character in the film, should stand out from the rest, which is why her glamorous and evil appearance includes carved cheekbones, pale skin, perfectly arched eyebrows and red lips. It took three hours a day in Jolie's makeup chair to carry out that transformation.

"In this Maleficent movie she has wings all the time, so her outfits are made of flowing, flowing fabrics that look gorgeous when moved in the wind," explained Mirojnick. Due to the "complexity" of the character they created up to nine costume changes, as the story changed and evolved, Maleficent also changed her outfit, this was our favorite. Several of the elements that were used to make its horns and other accessories were animal skins, snakes, skulls, feathers and bones among others, an element that gave it a touch of being from the forest. On the tape, we also saw Maleficent without the full headdress, just sporting her mythical horns. The detail of her pointy ears and the simplicity of her hairstyle show us another facet of the protagonist.For her part, Aurora's wardrobe is ethereal with a touch of sophistication, perfectly suited for someone who reigns over a kingdom of mystical creatures. Theirs is a more modern fairytale look with a color palette dominated by pale blues and pinks. "I knew that as Queen of the Moors it was essential that you begin your journey in a blue dress with an organic fairy tale design made in the woods," explained Mirojnick.

For its part, the appearance of Queen Ingrith is majestic and at the same time modern, and suggests an air of wealth and privilege. She has eight different dresses, all similar in shape, but with different fabrics and different accessories. "It has a soft and strong presence at the same time, and its colors do not give any indication that it is evil," Mirojnick said.
