Sara Sampaio faced the “biggest challenge” of her career after shooting with animated character Edna Mode from Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles.
Sara and Edna, known for her signature blunt bob and large glasses, posed for the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
The 26-year-old Portuguese model showed off a range of new season trends, all picked out by Edna, with the eccentric fashion designer favouring mostly red outfits, the same colour worn by the superhero family in The Incredibles.
“Shooting with Edna was probably the biggest challenge of my career! We kind of disagree on the no cape thing, But oh my what an honor! thank you @harpersbazaarus @theincredibles @victordemarchelier,” Sara captioned the magazine images on Instagram.
For the accompanying spread, Edna was quizzed on all things fashion.
“For me, dahling, once a trend is identified it is always over,” she stated. “Timid and hackneyed followers come rushing in, assured of their safety from risk. Real artists are always looking for the spot that is sweet—‘ahead of the curve,’ as you suggest—where the timid fear to go, where failure may happen, but success promises eternity.”
It’s been 14 years since Edna, voiced by writer and director Brad Bird, and co have been seen on screen, but they’re set to make a return next month (Jun18) in The Incredibles 2.
Original stars Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson have all once again lent their vocals to the flick, with Isabella Rossellini, Breaking Bad’s Bob Odenkirk, and Jonathan Banks also joining the cast.
