Arianne does it again for Madge new album

When Arianne Phillips set out to create the costumes for the James Mangold remake of the classic western "3:10 to Yuma," her biggest challenge was making the clothes seem like they'd already had the life wrung out of them.

Weeks of research went into the costume designs for the 25 main characters and 1,000 extras. "I didn't want to take the audience out of the story," Phillips said. "I wanted to avoid cliches and try to create a gritty reality" — a tall order considering how much Westerns are a part of the American consciousness, she said.

Tossed into the difficulty of the assignment was the fact that filming for the movie took place during the worst winter in New Mexico in 70 years, according to Phillips. She spent part of her time just trying to keep the actors reasonably warm as temperatures dipped to 10 and 12 degrees.

Since filming, Phillips has been busy supervising photo shoots for fashion magazines and looking at other film projects. She'll also be working on Madonna's next album. She has worked with Madonna for years. Phillips is proud of this movie, which has gotten glowing reviews from heavyweights like the Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

"This is a stellar, stellar piece," she said. "I'm very proud to be associated with this movie.

"For a designer, it was an incredible project"
