In July 2015, Beautiful Creatures actress Emmy Rossum was spotted running errands in Beverly Hills, and she looked killer in the process.

Who made the Beautiful Creatures costumes?
Two years earlier, she starred as Ridley Duchannes in the American romantic gothic fantasy film Beautiful Creatures.
The Victorian goth-like costumes in the film were created by costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, who is also known for his work on Inception (2010), Dunkirk (2017), and Erin Brockovich (2000).
“It was an interesting job, to say the least,” Kurland told MTV in an interview “The characters are extraordinary because they range in emotion, not just in their physicality, but in their emotion. They exude a presence that I needed to capture physically on screen.”
“As far as what costumes say, they tell a story,” Kurland added. “They tell a visual story. This is just a sampling but by no means [all] you’re going to see when you see the movie. Hopefully, you will enjoy that.”

“She dresses up and channels different old Hollywood movie stars like Marilyn Monroe in River of No Return or Rita Hayworth in Gilda. So, there are a lot of big moments that are carbon copies of the way the actresses looked in those films.”
“It was really fun to re-create. It was definitely very different than anything else I’ve ever played before,” Rossum added.

At first glance, it was a simple outfit, but her accessories added a fashion-forward edge.
