From blood-red gowns to bloody suits, these new series of costumes are Emmy-worthy


With “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” twirling offstage and “The Crown” finally reaching its revenge dress, the TV season has never been low-key when it comes to costumes. (Not to mention the genius Easter egg hidden in Tanya’s costume in The White Lotus.) But a show with great costumes creates great costumes for eye candy and character development. No one is surprised that he continues to demonstrate the skills to do so. Here are five notable series of 2023 Emmy outfits that premiered during the 2022-2023 season.

Taylor Sheridan’s latest addition to the ‘Yellowstone’ universe is a fascinating study of society moving from the rural world of ‘1883’ to a more technologically oriented America, with the Dutton family flying a helicopter to ‘Yellowstone’. Stone’s arrival at his home is depicted. Costume designer Janie Bryant straddles both worlds perfectly, with costumes that tell the story of which side each character belongs to in the battle between tradition and modernity. Her designs also extend to the series’ grand expansion and study of class differences in creating a wardrobe for an ensemble that includes struggling Indigenous students, daring overseas adventurers, high-society women, and a wide range of cowboys. join. A striking collection of outfits that are not only beautiful but also express your personality. —Jim Hemphill

Ambassador to the UK Kate Wyler’s (Keri Russell) journey is told, at least in part, in the form of her becoming more and more comfortable in more than just a black suit and comfy shoes, and her fashion. was written into the script from the beginning. But Roland Sanchez is archiving more than a political “Come on, Voyager” showcasing her confidence through a red gown. Seeing characters made up mostly of politician clerks (and a few peacocks preening their feathers), he and his team could wear features such as a dress shirt and tie or a tasteful tweed jacket. I found a way to instantly convey individuality through my choice of clothing. Modern costumes can be hard to impress, but one of the pleasures of “The Diplomat” is his deft combination of sharp writing, dry wit, and flawless character development, which makes for an instant. It is to be able to feel the direction. Needless to say, seeing David Gassi’s Dennison in a three-piece suit made me feel very British and understated – at least at first. —Mark Pykert

One of the benefits of AMC’s ‘Interview with the Vampire’ building story is its ability to jump across decades, and Season 1 explores the relationship between Louis (Jacob Anderson) and Lestat (Sam Reed) across several fashion eras. We are making the most of it to keep track. of the 20th century. But costume designer Carol Cutshall always does a great job of drawing them together, overcoming the frenzied rush of New Orleans residents. There is an angular, austere and sharp edge to Lestat’s dressing that can only be described as predatory, while much of Louis’ inner conflict stems from the Harold Lloyd cosplay he wears as a budding journalist and the more Visualized through a rich, vampire-like outfit. he is exhausted. “Interview with the Vampire” is a great example of period costume, never overwhelming the frame, but always saying something sly about its characters. The outfit also helps you get caught up in the decadent rush of night travel. Living people’s blood looks even brighter on the vampire’s cool clothes. —Sarah Shachat

“Wednesday” (Netflix)

Colleen Atwood, director Tim Burton’s go-to costume designer and four-time Oscar winner (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Alice in Wonderland, Memories of a Geisha, Chicago) have already won CDG Awards. She co-starred with co-designer Marc Sutherland on Netflix’s Wednesday, which was a strong Emmy nominee (episode 1, “Wednesday Kids Are Full of Trouble” in the Modern category). For the titular teen outsider (Jenna Ortega) who wields psychic powers in Nevermore, costume designers creatively played with black and white with various patterns and textures for a modern look. Burton’s idea was to convey everyday goth. The white-themed school dance dress is, of course, black, but it is made of nylon and tie-dyed brown for better light. Meanwhile, Atwood dressed the Nevermore students in purple and black stripes, while Morticia’s (Catherine Zeta-Jones) iconic hourglass black outfit was softened with a new neckline and side vents. . —Bill Desowitz
