Mrs. Lincoln / Sarafine (Emma Thompson)

For actress Emma Thompson, Kurland was tasked with creating costumes that fit the personalities of two characters. “The interesting thing about Mrs. Lincoln is that she is a very repressed church lady who lived in the South. [The way] she dresses —  which is slightly dated and goes back to the 1960s — serves two purposes because Sarafine takes over Mrs. Lincoln’s body,” Kurland explains. “It was an interesting challenge, and of course in the end they all end up in Antebellum clothing so you then have that period too!”
