The leather-covered horns are one of the most recognizable and most striking symbols of the film, inherited from the animated film "Sleeping Beauty", filmed at the Disney studio back in 1959. They have been approached by everyone who has ever looked to the image of the Maleficent sorceress - from Mattel, who released the collectible Barbie in this role, to MAC, who launched a cosmetic line inspired by cartoon antagonists. And Angelina Jolie's incredible headdress has already been copied for her children's line by Stell McCartney. And of course, the public was keenly interested in the process of its creation.
Make-up and make-up specialist Rick Baker said in an interview with the American magazine Allure: “When working on Maleficent's horns, a special hat was made that covered Angelina's head from forehead to nape. This allowed the structure not to slip. The horns were covered with natural leather and created by Sarah [Barton] of Alexander McQueen. But that's another story."
The story seemed quite plausible, however, today the press service of the brand has officially denied its participation in the project. It seems that creative director Alexander McQueen has never actually collaborated with Disney or Baker. And everything he said in an interview is nothing more than fiction or a PR move.
Who is the author of the famous horned headdress of the protagonist is still a mystery.
