Oscar award-winning costume designer, Colleen Atwood successfully uses different textures and silhouettes to create dimension in an exclusive black and white palette in Netflix’s Wednesday. Drawing upon haute-couture designer houses like DIOR, Prada, and Burberry, the inspiration is more runway than costume, for the heroine, who is “allergic to color.”
From her mid-semester entrance at Nevermore Academy, Wednesday’s school look is utilitarian. This is complete with the addition of a tie and a blazer. As the story unfolds, viewers see Wednesday’s fitted athleisure for the Poe Cup. The look inspired by The Black Cat, a short-story by Nevermore’s most famous fictitious alumni, Edgar Allen Poe. In later episodes, Wednesday wears a show-stopping Alaïa lace and ruffle dress at the annual Rave’N dance.
Tops and Bottoms:
Footwear and Accessories
Whether it’s playing her cello at Nevermore’s Outreach Day, or planning an impromptu stakeout at the Gates Mansion, Wednesday’s footwear and accessory choice provides strict function. Even the black snood, a birthday gift from Enid (friend/roommate), found such a life-saving purpose in the dumbwaiter.
Beauty & Skincare
Starting with a casket-ready, clear complexion, head makeup artist, Tara McDonald creates Wednesday’s signature look. Think a hummer-stung lip and a smokey eye. Check out these products to achieve your own half-dead look.
