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.
Rachel - The Bodyguard
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.
Jane - Tarzan and His Mate
The 1934 release of "Tarzan and His Mate" brought quite a bit of controversy with it. It wasn't Tarzan's costume that sparked controversy, which was surprising because he was swinging through the jungle with practically nothing covering himself. Of course, it was Jane's costume that was under scrutiny.
Maureen O’Sullivan wore a very revealing top and skirt. It turns out; this was the less revealing of the two costumes suggested. In fact, the original costume had O'Sullivan completely naked with well-placed props to cover her privates.
