PRIME EXPOSURE: Cathy Waterman’s jewelry has a starring role on Charlize Theron as the villainous queen in next summer’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood handpicked about a dozen pieces from the California jeweler for the dark fairy tale. “I am extremely flattered that they fit Colleen’s vision,” Waterman said at a luncheon in the home of Ylang 23 owners Joanne and Charles Teichman. “She’s got this epic imagination.”
Waterman was entranced by Atwood’s “magical” workshop when she visited the set at the famed Pinewood Studio about 20 miles west of London, “It was so fun to see,” she said. “What she’s done on this film, from the dwarves’ costumes to what Kristen Stewart as Snow White wore to these magnificent costumes that Charlize wore, they were all new ideas.”
