'The Bling Ring' costume designer has revealed Emma Watson was thrilled to be allowed to wear designer sweatpants and Ugg boots for her new film role.
Emma Watson was excited about her glamorous 'The Bling Ring' costume.
The 23-year-old actress had no problem ditching her sophisticated style for a more materialistic look to play fame-obsessed Nicki in Sofia Coppola's new film, and even volunteered to wear her own off-duty clothes for the role.
Costume designer Stacey Battat told New York Magazine: ''We had a lot of fun creating Nicki. Emma was really excited to wear her Juicy sweatsuits - and she also wore Uggs, which I think was a very LA thing at that time.''
Due to the high profile nature of the film, which is based on the real-life antics of a group of youths who robbed celebrity's homes in the Hollywood Hills, top designers were happy to provide hundreds of clothes samples to give the set an authentic feel.
Stacey added: ''They went to celebrities' houses - Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox - so we wanted the closets to look all like they were full of stuff.
''Dior let us borrow tons of samples, we had hundreds of Dior bags, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana. [The brands] let us keep our samples for a long time so that we could really have it feel authentic and rich.''
