"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" turns out to be a decent boxoffice performer, although it may have cost too much. But that shouldn't displease moviegoers. Check out Vanity Fair on the creative process behind the stunning visuals in the David Fincher film.

Costume designer Trish Summerville reveals her collaboration with artist Christopher Cordella to design the wardrobe of sharp-tongued punk hacker Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). Salander needed to be simultaneously repulsive and magnetic, shadowy and compelling. Studded accessories, tribal earrings, plush leather jackets, fingerless gloves, and a fringed mohawk contributed to her gritty attitude.

More about Summerville's process is at Vanity Fair.
