One of the most talked-about costumes that weren’t in a movie about superheroes was Whitney Houston’s in the film “The Bodyguard.” The silver headpiece, the fringed skirt, and the beady necklace were all a part of Rachel’s costume and were all something to admire.
Then, there was the wet-looking garment that made her look like a character from “X-Men,” and was just as controversial as the movie’s theme song.
The X-Men - The X-Men
The comic book community isn't shy about expressing their disapproval when it comes to costumes. One of the most serious costume offenses took place in the 2000 blockbuster, "X-Men." In the comic book, the X-Men flew around the world, saving people in blue and yellow uniforms.
Yet in the movie version, Bryan Singer opted to go with an all-black uniform, which infuriated many devoted fans. He explained that the choice was made to keep the team hidden.
Ozymandias - Watchmen
Unlike other superhero movies, "Watchmen" made an extreme effort to stay true to the source material, except for one character — Ozymandias. For a reason beyond our understanding, the movie decided to adjust this costume from the purple fabric and jewelry of the original character and go with a more modern superhero look.
The suit was molded with muscles, and the director, Zack Snyder, shrugged off the criticism, explaining that the look was more in line with the character's personality.
Cinderella - Cinderella
One of the first live-action renditions of Disney classics, the ever-so-innocent "Cinderella," got some backlash when it came to the costumes. Critics and fans slammed the film for slimming Lily James's waist. The filmmakers were quick to respond, letting everyone know nothing of the sort had been done; the actress simply had a very slim waist.
That, and the fact that she wore a corset throughout filming, made James's waist look extremely thin.
Judge Dredd - Judge Dredd
There were many reasons why "Judge Dredd" wasn't a successful film. From the casting to the script and direction, there was something off about the movie. For comic book fans, the inability of the costumes to stick to the original plot was the straw that broke the camel's back and may have been the most controversial thing about the film.
Judge Dredd never takes his helmet off in the comic book, but lo and behold, in the film, the helmet came off very quickly. Most blame Sylvester Stallone, known for being a demanding actor, who asked for all these changes, including the costume.
