De Beers Lends the Show Stopping Jewelry To The New “Cruella” Film
Jenny Beavan, the costume designer behind Disney’s; Cruella which opened in May 28, 2021 in movie theaters and which can also be seen on Disney + (with premiere access), is no stranger to period films, high jewelry, or the details that enhance character. So when De Beers announced it was providing diamond High Jewelry for Emma Thompson’s character—it seemed a natural fit.
Beavan’s role in the costumes, her previous credits and how De Beers diamonds played a large role in the new Cruella film, which is a take on the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians, set amid 1970s London and the punk rock revolution of the day can be found here
