BAFTA award winning hair and make-up designer Nadia Stacey is an enigma. Glancing through her list of past projects you will struggle to find rhyme or reason. From The Girl With All The Gifts through to The Father and Captain America: The First Avenger, she tackles unrelated areas of interest and always creates something unique.
In conversation for Cruella it becomes clear that Nadia thrives on diversity, revels in originality and strives for difference at every turn. She recently took time out to discuss this latest collaboration, which is as far removed from the Disney classic as audiences can imagine.

Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
Cruella is directed by I, Tonya helmer Craig Gillespie and stars Emma Stone (La La Land) in the title role alongside Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility), Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya), Joel Fry (Game of Thrones), Emily Beecham (Into the Badlands), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Killing Eve), and Mark Strong (Shazam!).
