In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we shine the spotlight on the behind-the-scenes talent helping to create movie, TV and music magic through set design and costumes, so where better to start than the Emmy-nominated team who conjures up the fairy-tale world of Once Upon a Time?
At our cover shoot, as Josh Dallas demonstrated his cape-twirling skills for co-star Ginnifer Goodwin, Once costume designer Eduardo Castro — who put Don Johnson in pastel Armani suits on Miami Vice and created the fierce (and fugly) fashions seen on Ugly Betty — gave us a sneak peek at the new costumes the couple will wear in season two.
After spending all of season one in the same brown leather doublet, Castro says that new costumes will help turn Dallas’ character into “a much more swashbuckling kind of Prince Charming.” And Dallas tells EW; ”It takes somebody with great taste to go through all of these different interpretations of fairy tales over hundreds and hundreds of years and… make it up-to-date and make it cool and make it cinematic, and I think Eduardo does that brilliantly.”
Snow also gets some new clothes, including an edgy war council look inspired by a runway style from Alexander McQueen, but she’s still not afraid to show her softer side. “The element of romance is what keeps the show going,” Castro muses.
Watch the video for more from the wardrobe designer and see Dallas show off his new cape.
