Big Little Lies: Rock Vintage Looks From The Show To A Soulful Soundtrack

The Fashion of Big Little Lies: Wouldn’t It Be Loverly!? Now It Is!

The season finale of HBO’s hit show Big Little Lies brought the tea — with a final revelation of the murder (spoiler-free) and an Audrey Hepburn/Elvis inspired fête that’s been alluded to since day one.  Along with a soulful playlist, incredible acting and a line up of fierce divas, here’s a breakdown of some of the looks on the show that you can easily assemble at home. Costume designer Alix Friedberg is not even playing with these odes to Audrey.

Madeline Martha Mackenzie’s (Reese Witherspoon) white, one-piece paired with tassel earrings is a simple throwback to Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Madeline’s sleep mask is available on Etsy ($30, earring/earplug customization available by The Sleepy Cottage), The earrings were made from a set of earplugs. Her shirt was a long Celine shirt customized with black tuxedo buttons.

 

Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) delivered Hepburn’s classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s simple black dress. A girl gotta have it.

Kidman’s little black dress, princess tiara and pearls à la Breakfast at Tiffany’s was custom-made by Anna Maier. Her gloves were from Cornelia James in England ($168), and pearls from Brooks Brothers ($398).

Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) slayed in simple Gap pieces.

Jane also delivered vintage Breakfast At Tiffany’s. You can easily buy these two pieces and then say “oh, this old thing,” when you eat it up at your next party.

Can we just talk about Zoe Kravitz for a sec though?
