Why We’re So Obsessed With Do Revenge Costumes

Morshead created Drea and Eleanor’s standout looks for the film’s climactic admissions party.

“We wanted it to be super special,” she explained. I knew it would be night and there would be fire, lights and a crowd. So how do we make them stand out from a crowd that is also going to be very dressed up? I wanted something that could really reflect.”

An image of Carla Bruni became the inspiration for Drea’s iridescent green dress, to which a surprising design element was added. “My costume assistant introduced me to beauty supply stores in Atlanta,” Morshead said, “which are amazing and the chains on those dresses are actually two belts that were $1.50 each.”

As for Eleanor, “I loved the idea of ​​an androgynous oversized costume,” Morshead noted. “She’s still too cool to be like, ‘I’m going to buy a dress or a dressing gown.’ Like, of course, she wears a cool costume and can pull it off.”

“I remember waking up one day and being like, ‘Orange zippers. I have to do something with orange zippers,'” she continued. “I went to the fabric store and bought 75 orange trouser zippers and we sewed them all together and then wrapped them around and made some sort of corset out of them.”

But the shiny lamé fabric was a gamble, admits Morshead, “A lot of people were like, ‘I don’t know, Alana.’ And I was like, ‘I know, it could be terrible. But let’s do it, we have to try it! Of course, we did it and we were like, ‘This is it!'”
