You can see the best outfits from the Killing Eve costume department at this BAFTA exhibition in London.
When you think of Killing Eve and the outrageously brilliant costumes from the show, what springs to mind first? I’d be willing to bet you’d pick the gloriously frothy bubblegum pink Molly Goddard dress from season one, episode two titled I’ll Deal With Him Later.
Teamed with black, buckled Balenciaga boots and Jodie Comer’s barely-styled bun, it was a look that not only made TV fashion history but inspired everyone from influencers to last year’s Halloween costumes.
And now you can see that dream pairing for yourself at the new BAFTA: Behind the Screens exhibition which will spotlight the inspiring stories from the award-winning people who write, make and shoot some of the nation’s most loved TV shows.
A display of pure creativity, the exhibition will feature annotated scripts, handcrafted models, audio-visual displays and costumes to highlight the talents of BAFTA winners and nominees, including of course, the iconic Villanelle ensemble.
As well as viewing much of the costume design for Killing Eve (because we can all agree, there was more than one outfit that made us swoon), there will also be fascinating displays exploring the intricately crafted hair and make-up used for The Favourite starring Olivia Coleman, and an insight into the research done by Chiwetel Ejiofor’s for his harrowing role in 12 Years A Slave.
Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said of the exhibition: “Behind every BAFTA-nominated film, game or television programme are immense creativity and incredible technical skills, delivered by literally hundreds of people who are passionate about their craft.
“Our ever-changing exhibition will shine a light on these nominees and their personal journeys, inspiring visitors to BAFTA Piccadilly as well as the next generation of talent that BAFTA nurtures, develops and supports year-round.”
Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more obsessed with Killing Eve, eh?
