I have upload three new additions of Jodie’s Noble Panacea advertisement. One is from the shoot, the other are two are behind the scenes.
– 2020 | ‘Noble Panacea’ Promotional Photoshoot
Killing Eve costume designer Sam Perry, who is nominated for an Emmy, told E! News about the planning that went into creating the looks for Villanelle, portrayed by Jodie Comer.
One can tell a lot about a person based on their clothing.
A coffee stain on a shirt, or the lack thereof, can hint at the level of chaos someone experienced that morning. Likewise, the decision to wear a hoodie rather than a coat can indicate whether a person intends to go into an office that day.
It’s these subtle details that Killing Eve costume designer Sam Perry took into consideration when planning out the looks for season three of the BBC America series.
Talking to E! News on the phone from her home in England, Perry shared that ahead of filming she would look over the script and talk to the art department to determine how the characters’ own journeys would be reflected in their wardrobe. And since this season largely focused on Villanelle’s (Jodie Comer) mission to understand who she is, it makes sense that a large part of her time was dedicated to dressing the complex lead.
Starting the discussion with Villanelle’s wedding in episode one, Perry explained that she dressed her in a black Comme des Garçons tailcoat and Simone Rocha blouse, because it simply isn’t “her vibe” to wear a white bridal gown. As Perry remarked, “She just does whatever she feels like in that moment, on that day, regardless of whether it’s right or not. She just doesn’t want to answer to anybody.”
But after that, a brighter, more youthful Villanelle emerged as she prepared for a life as a handler in Barcelona, Spain. Out were the pantsuits and in were eye-catching patterns, flowing dresses and softer colors that signified a new start for the assassin.
(Jodie Comer herself told E! News over email that she “loved” this dress.)
Welcome to Adoring Jodie Comer at jodiecomer.net, your newest source dedicated to British actress Jodie Comer. My name is Mel and this site is several months of hard work that I am thrilled to be able to share with Jodie fans alike.
I first saw Jodie in The White Princess and have been captivated by her ever since. Jodie is one of those actresses that is so versatile and phenomenal that just when you think you have witnessed her on top of her game, she takes it to a whole other level. Her role as Villanelle in Killing Eve is a case in point!
There is still a lot left to do on the site, and with COVID-19 it is perfect timing to work on completing the site with screen captures, articles and video clips. So watch this space. In the meantime, please follow the site on Twitter.
