Much has been said about Theron’s explosive fight scenes and stunts which she performed herself. And she did that in wonderful long coats, such as the iconic Atomic Blonde Charlize Theron Coat, skirt, sweater, garters, and knee-high boots. Cindy Evans, the costume designer for Atomic Blonde, tells us that she did a lot of research on the work of Helmut Newton from the 80s and couldn’t help but be attracted to his photos and the way they exuded strength and sensuality so graphically.
“Before we begin, sir, I formally request that Mr. Kurzfeld be removed from the debriefing”
In preparation for the movie and while designing costumes, Evans spent a considerable amount of time in many thrift stores in Berlin and around Europe to get that punk aesthetic, made famous by Debbie Harry.
