Is it just us, or have you also noticed that most villains in movies get to have more fun in the costume department? Case in point: The Counselor’s Malkina. Played by the feisty Cameron Diaz, Malkina is a sociopath compelled to take the power of every man, devour it, and then break down every woman. Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie presents a deeply topical tale of greed, jealousy, and the devastating drug war in Mexico where violence is a way of life.
To establish Malkina’s character, Ridley tapped his old friend Paula Thomas, creative director of Los Angeles-based brand Thomas Wylde, to create outfits that are totally different from the mainstream designer looks we’ve seen before. Click on the link below for a behind-the-scenes look!
