While writing about Killing Eve yesterday, I forgot to mention the show's standout fashion moment. Throughout the first season, the costuming is consistently A+, with clothes often playing a significant role in the plot (a recognizable green scarf, the unexpected gift of a dress). But the scene where Russian assassin Villanelle is enduring a psychological review by her bosses to see if she's become too out-of-control to be a reliable murderer ... that moment, well, it kills.
Between Goddard and Viktor & Rolf in Paris, the vintage Oscar de la Renta that I passed up in 2017 is looking a little small!

In my own defense, I didn't pass up that dress because it was "too much." I had to choose between that one and another Oscar de la Renta and I thought the colors in this one -- and the photo doesn't even capture how electric they were -- made it even more mind-blowing.
However, the embroidered one couldn't be worn with alterations that, it turned out, couldn't be done. There wasn't enough of a seam allowance in the dress and the fabric was too fragile, for those who understand such things. I had to return that dress, and for some reason, I didn't ask for the tulle instead. Anyway, as you can see from one of my recent videos, I have plenty of floof to wear in jacket form.
Killing Eve has continued fashion slays offscreen, too. Theme dressing nearly always wins my approval, so I loved it when actors Sandra Oh (our assassin-hunting hero, Eve) and Jodie Comer (the unrepentant Villanelle) hit the Golden Globes red carpet in January wearing white and black, respectively. Note the good floof action on Jodie's dress.
