Hello there 🙂
If you're something like me, you've spent the last eight weeks of your life watching HBO's new show euphoria, There are so many reasons why this show is phenomenal. The cast consists of greats like Zendaya and Hunter Schafer and is produced by Drake – but the cast is just the tip of the iceberg. What does this show do? Main bingeing are the Seductive acts that explore everything from drug addiction and toxic masculinity to gender identity.
If that were not enough, Heidi Bivens, the costume designer of the show, styling the icing on the cake. The best shows not only deal with the cultural zeitgeist, but also stylish. Honestly, I would be so happy to fight poisonous masculinity if I were wearing one of Maddy's powerful ensembles. The beautiful looks and hoodies of the show have also made me euphoric, which is why I've made it my mission to put together the best outfits of the show. Fair warning: there are spoilers in front of us.
While hoodies seem to be one of the more trivial costume choices compared to the sparkling eyeshadows and sets they contain euphoria Scenes, it's one of Heidi's more subtle ways to use clothing as part of the bigger storytelling. Yes, of course, hoodies are a practical choice, but within the show, they serve as a cover for the figure's emotional trauma. Alexa Demie's Maddy is about physically hiding the traces of abuse, and Zendaya's Rues case is about feeling closer to her deceased father. In this way, clothing goes beyond its purpose and conveys the complexity of love.
Were your nights in high school so fancy? Apart from all jokes, the beauty of the pilot episode, including this spontaneous sleepover scene, is that the wardrobe is a strong signal for the beginning of the close relationship of the protagonists (Rue as Zendaya and Hunter Schafer as Jules). After all, nothing screams so intimately as to laze in a crop top or something silly.
Unpopular opinion ahead: I lived for Jacob Elordi's cameo as Nate at the Halloween party in episode six. The costume of Nate and Maddy was not only ironic and symbolic of their relationship, but also of the plot. Heidi, I see you with this action, which is illustrated by costumes. And as much as you hate him, you have to admit that those stripes look so damn good on him.
From all euphoria Episodes, Zendaya's appearance was no more unprecedented than in the seventh episode. In many ways, her appearance as Detective Bennett added a lightheartedness to an otherwise emotionally heavy episode, where she wavers between mania and depression as she tries to investigate why Jules is upset. If ever there was a case of detecting detectives being smart, Rue solved it.
If only I could round up all of Maddy's 2-piece sets, I would. The girl's ability to rock a two-parter is the next level, and I was particularly intrigued by the purple I.Am.Gia set that she wore in episode four for the carnival. In this episode, the costume seemed to be the clearest example of how Maddy's exceedingly sultry appearance contrasts her overly masculine behavior with her partner Nate. While Nate flaunts his masculinity through his outbursts, Maddy's costumes, especially this one, are just as loud. Her look is a parade of femininity. They are their little acts of rebellion against an abusive, controlling partner. They say I am here, I am in control of my body and I will carry the shit out of this set.
Of all the characters, Cassie's wardrobe choices are the most restrained. She wears no two-parter like Maddy or glistens like Jules, but her flair came through during the final. It's not clear whether it's a fantasy or the future, but in an instant Cassie will abort with a peacock-feather suit while skating on the ice. The subtle message behind this costume and moment is so powerful. Flying on the ice in springs feels like she is finally free of the weight of her pregnancy and her past.
Barbie Ferreria's costumes when Kat really stole the show; No other character used the style as an indicator of change more than they did. I lived personally for her transformation from the girl next door to the grunge domina – the grunge finally stands before the fall. But apart from the fact that she loved her serious body girdles, it was encouraging to see how this young, curvy woman found strength and displayed her sexuality by putting on her clothes. Kate's transformation tells society that women of all sizes can not only earn pleasure, but look damn good when they do. I'm here for that.
There are outfits that only need a split second on the screen to blow you up – this is no exception. From rainbow eyelash extensions to Jules & # 39; technicolor matching set, that look shook me. Granted, dipping into the dark fantasy where Rue and Jules murder Nate is also worth shaking, but something about this scene and the way Jules is styled is like a commentary to overshadow the larger gender roles of society. While she sees Nate burn (the living definition of toxic masculinity in the series), this trans woman wears the most fabulous look she associates with her love – and if that's not a fashion statement, I do not know what it is.
If a season finale was not filled with enough emotions, the character's costumes became euphoriaThe final was worth a few tears. In Heidi-Mannier, the winter appearance of each character was not only a dream, but also spoke phenomenally with the development of each character. As a result, you see Cassidy pulling a Pretty in Pink Moment and show yourself to the dance despite her bad mood. If that was not enough, Maddy wore an individual Swarovski dress from head to toe, Kat killed us with a red bondage situation, Rue wore a corset and Jules wore this beautiful feather duster, which I needed as quickly as possible in my life. Basically, the costumes have strengthened, confirmed and alleviated the emotional growth and decline of this series.
In general, the highlight of this season's styling is attributed to the Halloween costumes of all. Not only were they funny, but they matched any of the characters. Kat was Thana out Mrs. 45Jules looked like Juliet, Maude Apatow (aka Lexi) was Bob Ross, Cassie was Alabama Worley, and then there was Rue as Rue.
In many ways, these looks are not only metaphorical to the characters themselves, but they are also Heidi's representations of the sensational journey that each episode has led us to. For the best costume selection – Halloween or elsewhere – it's not just outfits, but reflections of our lived experiences that speak for themselves.
