Lucille Sharpe’s Costumes, Designed by Kate Hawley for Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak, 2015

The leaves on Lucille’s dresses were hand crafted and each costume was made using ”antiquated pleating techniques” Lucille wears classic Victorian silhouettes, always in dark colours (mourning colours, as she is mourning for her mother and her family’s name and status) Hawley said that the decorations on Lucille’s clothing were restricted to leaves and foliage, to suggest that she was becoming a part of the house and dark colours were used to reflect the darkness of her personality.

I do not own these images.
