Penelope Cruz as Carla
"I never keep any of my character's costumes, but I had to keep one corset. It was so beautiful," said Cruz, who spends much of the film in handmade corsets made with antique lace. For a scene that called for the Spanish stunner to be fully clothed but no less sensual, Atwood created a fitted suit using vintage fabric and paired it with a custom-made fur by Dennis Basso. "The concept was that Penelope's character would wear something over-the-top and almost embarrassing to meet the man with whom she's supposed to be having a secret affair," the costume designer explained.
