Based on the novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians
by Dodie Smith, and a sequel to Disney's 1996 live-action adaptation of their animated classic 101 Dalmatians
, this live-action film once again features Glenn Close in the role of the over-the-top and rather bizarre Cruella De Vil.
After three years in prison, Cruella is determined to keep away from animal fur - especially of the doggy kind. Despite all her best intentions, however, Cruella unwittingly finds herself again embroiled in a haute couture situation. Ioan Gruffudd, Alice Evans, Tim McInnerny, Ian Richardson and Gérard Depardieu co-star.
Two of Glenn Close's breathtaking houndstooth-emblazoned power suits feature in our Hollywood Costume
exhibition. Designed by Anthony Powell, these Chanel-like skirt suits-on-steroids would be at home on the shoulders of Lady Gaga.
