Palm Springs's Costume Designer Spills on Creating the Perfect Bohemian Bridal Look For Camila Mendes
In the wonky new comedy Palm Springs on Hulu, you'll catch costars Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti living out the same day on a loop (much like the classic Groundhog Day) at a destination wedding in — you guessed it! — Palm Springs. Consequently, you'll also catch a lot of the bride, Tala, played by Camila Mendes. Naturally, a movie centered on a wedding means the wedding dress itself is a big part of the story.
Enter costume designer Colin Wilkes, who skillfully dressed Camila for the part of Palm Springs bride, with the bohemian details — flower crown and all — to match. The result is a bridal look that, as Colin told us, earned an audible gasp in the room when Camila first tried it on. For anyone who's ever been wedding-dress shopping — for yourself or a friend — you know that's pretty much goals. But what went into finding the dress? From the mood board to the details and the filming, Colin talked to us about creating the memorable moment on screen.
