Fashion’s favourite assassin Villanelle from Killing Eve has one of the most amazing wardrobes in the TV drama history. Costume designer Charlotte Mitchell put a lot of effort into every detail of Villanelle’s style. At the end of the day, let’s be honest, the enthralling cat-and-mouse game in the plot is not the only thing that captivates the viewers. As season 3 begins production, we’re collecting Villanelle’s most memorable style moments.
The Dries Van Noten brocade power suit that Villanelle wore for that clubbing scene in Berlin. According to Vogue, this outfit was Comer’s favourite from her character’s killer wardrobe.
In season one, the custom Chloé pussy-bow blouse and Paige denim shorts that she wore to motorbike through Tuscany.
This high-necked, net-sleeved Alexander McQueen couture gown brings the most sartorial drama to season two. And even more so when the audience understands why Villanelle’s wearing it, teased costume designer Charlotte Mitchell in an interview with Vogue.
The blue lace Burberry dress that Villanelle “borrowed” in Tuscany in season one, and paired with more practical Doc Martens.
When she gets her money back in season two, Villanelle wears a velvet Chloé jacket paired with a frill-collared purple shirt and Isabel Marant trousers.
For a visit to Oxford in season two, Villanelle goes for costumed scholar chic, donning a crisp shirt and tie with a vintage cable-knit sweater and brown Raey trousers.
The Jason Wu jewel-toned satin coat she wears over a slip dress in season two. Oh man, I want it now!
The dusty-pink Burberry trench and Balenciaga open-toe boots chosen for a Vienna shopping spree in season one.
The playful Miu Miu printed sundress was an apt choice for an ice cream jaunt on the Champs-Élysées in season one.
Season two’s Rosie Assoulin blouse (in pink as a “bit of a homage to that Molly Goddard moment”, Mitchell told Vogue) paired with a taffeta skirt and flamboyant ’80s Christian Lacroix earrings.
And finally, that Molly Goddard frothy tulle dress from season one, which was definitely Villanelle’s most slaying moment of all.
