MTV Style | Hot Topic's Maleficent Collaboration Is To Die For
Channel Angelina Jolie with this wicked new clothing collection...
Something wicked this way comes…. Namely a magical new collection from American retailer Hot Topic inspired by fairytale’s favourite bad girl, Maleficent.
The double-horned Disney villain has been given a magical make-over by Hollywood’s own (former) bad girl, Angelina Jolie, who stars as the beautiful but deadly Mal in a new live-action flick out next month. “She really got into her character in a way. Like, she was very, so into the details of her clothes,” recalled Elle Fanning, who plays Princess Aurora to Jolie’s Maleficent.
Now you too can channel Angie and get into character with Hot Topic’s seven-piece Maleficent collection, which includes a high collar dress and hooded cape. Pair with a horned headband (also available as part of the collection) to create an outfit as beautiful as it is deadly. (Seriously, those horns could take an eye out.)
Of course, if you’re more Sleeping Beauty than bad fairy, you could go for one of two Aurora-inspired items also released alongside the collection: a white bell-sleeve dress and a delicate pink lace top.
“There is so much we instantly loved about Maleficent,” said Cindy Levitt, SVP, Merchandising and Marketing at Hot Topic. “The complex story behind this beloved villain, the breathtaking scenery and the striking costumes. We just knew we had to design a dark and edgy collection.”
Maleficent x Hot Topic is out now at HotTopic.com.
