HBO’s The Undoing is the psychological thriller that has had us on the edge of our seats from the very first episode. But one thing that’s keeping us on our toes beyond the whodunnit mystery? Nicole Kidman’s outfits.
Playing esteemed psychotherapist Grace Fraser, whose picture-perfect life begins to derail after her family is embroiled in a brutal murder, Kidman’s portrayal has struck a chord with many a fashion-lover. From the embroidered capes to that glitzy metallic Givenchy pleated gown and all the stunning coats in between, the fashion of the show has been thoroughly on point.
And as we know from shows like Sex and the City and Killing Eve, fashion can go a long way when it comes to telling a story.
With a sense of style that could only be described as ‘bohemian hippie-luxe meets refined Manhatten witchcore‘, Grace Fraser has become our latest TV fashion icon—always pulling off cosy-chic without a hitch.
Whether it’s how to embrace the colour purple or how to simply rock paisley prints in 2020, these are the lessons we’re noting from The Undoing‘s wardrobe and the pieces we’re shopping to take this look into the Aussie summer.
