What’s more, Angelina Jolie’s costumes for the film are meticulously crafted, with some based on the actual garments once worn by Maria Callas.

The production worked closely with Massimo Cantini Parrini’s archive collection, striving to avoid using new fur in collaboration with PETA—an ethical choice in line with the changing sensibilities of today’s audience.
