A Killer Sense of Style
Who cares if Eve is killed or not or who constitutes the deadly Twelve? The only things that really matters in TV show Killing Eve are the clothes worn by psychopathic assassin Villanelle.
Cos boy, does she have the best wardrobe in the world.
Remember the frothy, bubblegum pink dress by London designer Molly Goddard in Season 1 which triggered a thousand articles and somersaulted the designer into the big league? Or the patterned Dries Van Noten power suit in which Villanelle went from the subway station to the Berlin night club? Even the superhero PJs stolen from a young hospital patient (whom she killed of course, but only out of kindness) in Season 2 developed their own fan club.
But, I believe, she (and her stylist) peaked in season 3. My favorites from the season:
- The green Charlotte Knowles feathered jacket and Gucci trousers worn for a killing game on the golf course
- The Seventies-style yellow & orange printed mini dress from La DoubleJ, with distressed cowboy boots and a straw bag, from the apartment in Spain
- The floral Etro trousers and Alexander McQueen asymmetric fuchsia blazer worn to a laidback meeting in Amsterdam
- The white man’s shirt, high-waisted Raey beige pleated trousers and knotted jumper designed to fit in perfectly at Oxford.
And, oh, how can I forget the rose-and-fuschia outfit, with the giant Christian Lacroix earrings, which make a hat tip to the Goddard outfit of Season 1? Whoever said ‘anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink’ wasn’t joking.
