Killing Eve Is Killing It With These Standout Style Moments That We Want To Copyby | October 09, 2019
Not since Sex and the City and Gossip Girl has a show been created that focuses on style as much as it does on its plot. Killing Eve is easily one of the most stylish show in recent times. Created by Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, this award-winning show has had two successful seasons and is prepping for its third as you read this.
For those who haven’t watched the show (why though?), the plot revolves around antagonist Villanelle who is an assassin, the subplot being the style on the show. Played by Jodie Comer, it is about a hit-woman with a killer sense of style. Pun intended. Filmed in Paris and across Europe to further drive home the point, the costume designer on Season 1, Phoebe de Gaye, has swathed Comer in pieces straight off the runway. For instance, the bubblegum pink tulle Molly Goddard dress, the Dries Van Noten brocade power suit, and the understated Burberry trench coat: Labels and pieces that fashion insiders in-the-know are privy to, but a detail that can be just as easily overlooked by many. In Season 2, costume designer Charlotte Mitchell followed tradition by dressing Comer in a high-octane Alexander McQueen couture gown among other memorable sartorial moments.
If you haven’t watched the show, or have watched it and missed the subtle yet effective style statement on the show, here are some of Villanelle’s standout to-die-for (again, pun intended) looks that we would kill (oops) to have in our wardrobe.
Trust us when we say that finding 10 best looks from a show where every outfit is so well-planned and executed (did it again) is SO. VERY. HARD.
This dress and scene have become synonymous with the show. Straight off the runway, Comer is wearing a signature tulle dress by Molly Godard against the iconic Place Vendôme in Paris. De Gaye has styled this flouncy and feminine dress with tough, chunky Balenciaga boots. Remember the ones that went viral a few years ago? Yep, those.
Another iconic moment on the show, again in pink (who says assassins can't rock pink), Comer looks straight-out-of-a-fashion-editorial chic in a Rosie Assoulin blouse paired with a taffeta skirt against a Parisian backdrop. The scene-stealer though are the earrings: vintage Christian Lacroix from the '80s.
Power suiting, but make it fashion. Comer as Villanelle wearing a Dries Van Noten matching brocade co-ord suit.
This printed Miu Miu sundress paired with sneakers is perfect for a walk in the park. The ice-cream in hand makes it an Instagram-worthy moment to capture. If Villanelle had an Instagram account, this would make the cut.
We are here for this Burberry trench coat in an unexpected dusty rose. Paired with striped trousers and a pair of open-toe boots by Balenciaga, this is how we imagine we would like to dress on a shopping spree in Vienna.
This Diane Keaton in Annie Hall-inspired androgynous outfit is fit for a visit to Oxford, which is where Villanelle wore it.
We approve of everything about this look. Right from the pussy-bow blouse by Alexander McQueen to this pleated skirt by The Row. Super feminine and oh-so-chic, we are going to test drive this unusual colour pairing.
One of our favourite looks from the show without a doubt, Comer is wearing a printed velvet jacket by Chloé over a purple blouse with a frill collar. Mitchell has paired it with a pair of chic silver trousers by Isabel Marant.
Villanelle sure knows how to lounge in style. Here, she is wearing an Emerald green metallic jacket by Jason Wu. We would also like to give a shoutout to the gorgeous oriental Olivia Von Halle robe, satin kimono by Meng, the Etro jacquard jacket, and the Erdem floral silk kimono and pyjama set. If you know, you know.
Villanelle sure knows how to amp up the drama. Case in point, this high-necked Alexander McQueen outfit that took the sartorial value of the series to a new height.
We can't wait to see what Season 3 has in store for us. Until then, we will try and emulate the very-chic, and badass Villanelle.
