Cinderella's Stepmother and Stepsisters gowns from Into the Woods on display...

Three time Oscar-winner, Colleen Atwood, is one of the five accomplished Costume Designers in the running for an Academy Award this year for her work in Into the Woods, and here is another selection of her fabulous designs on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on January 6, 2015.

Rob Marshall directed this Disney adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim Tony Award-winning musical, which offers a new, twisted take on familiar Brothers Grimm fairytale characters, like the rags-to-riches story of Cinderella and her unpleasant Stepmother and Stepsisters.

The wonderful Christine Baranski stars as Cinderella's Stepmother in this musical adaptation, whilst Lucy Punch plays 'Lucinda' and Tammy Blanchard plays 'Florinda', Cinderella's horrid Stepsisters.

Apparently the designer gave this farcical family a burlesque 'trying-to-get-a-man' look, with fishnets and short black skirts with metallic accents.

In fact the Stepmother is so intent on getting her daughters married off, she even resorts to mutilation so their feet will fit into Cinderella's golden slipper when 'Prince Charming' comes calling.
