When designing the costumes for the film adaptation of the musical Into the Woods, director Rob Marshall turned to three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. The film follows a baker and his wife (played by Emily Blunt) in their quest to find objects that can reverse a curse place upon their family tree. Their epic journey is filled with encounters from some of your favorite childhood fairy tales, including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk.

You can get these precious objects yourself—without trudging through the woods. Try Cinderella's gold slipper on for size, but update it with a stiletto heel and modern straps. Jack’s cow as white as milk? Opt for an asymmetrical leather skirt. Go for a braided gold cuff in place of Rapunzel’s golden locks or revamp Red Riding Hood's iconic cape with a cinched waist and a cute collar.

But no fairy tale is complete without a villain. When designing Meryl Streep's and Johnny Depp's costumes for the witch and the wolf, respectively, Atwood was naturally inspired from the imaginative vision of the musical. Pay them a tribute with a whimsical pleated top or a faux fur stole for a stylish statement.
