Fox’s upcoming Rocky Horror Picture Show reboot has some brilliant casting—including Adam Lambert as Eddie, Frank N. Furter and Columbia’s ex-flame who meets an untimely end.
Turning the pop glampire into a messy biker with an attitude was no mean feat, but Tony-winning costumer designer William Ivey Long (Hairspray, Grey Gardens, Cinderella) was up to the task.
“Poor Eddie—he’s a mess!” says Long in an exclusive behind-the-scenes video. “He’s cover in mud… ripped jeans—and not in a fashion sense.”
Below, Lambert and Long discuss Eddie’s visual evolution.
