Leeloo (The Fifth Element)

The main task of the stylists was to emphasize the supernatural origin of the heroine. Hairstyle, makeup and clothes showed that Mila Jovovich’s character is not an ordinary person. The actress agreed to dye her hair orange and bleach the roots every few days because her glossy shade quickly faded. It was only at the end of filming that the hairdressers made a wig, because Mila’s hair was damaged.
