Stars dress to impress at ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Season 2 Finale Event
The night of July 9th the red carpet went black for the much-anticipated finale primer of Hulu’s hit show The Handmaid’s Tale. Stars came dressed to match the dark and eerie mood of their characters and the city of Gilead.
Amanda Brugel (Rita) was the first to hit the carpet in a 2-piece 3.1Phillip Lim fit, paired with oversized silver hoops, sleek hair, and a fresh face.
Lead Elisabeth Moss (Offred) stunned on the carpet wearing an all-black, sweetheart cut Carolina Herrera ensemble and Christian Louboutin lace patterned pumps, styled by Karla Welch.
A pregnant Yvonne Stahovski (Serena) was glowing in a pleated Hugo Boss maxi dress, showing off her baby bump, styled by Cristina Ehrlich. When asked what her biggest pregnancy craving is she said “the spines of iceberg lettuce” she “just loves the crispy crunch”
Since the cast doesn’t get a chance to express their personalities through fashion in this uniform show, a few used this primer as a way to do so.
Former Gilmore Girls star, Alexis Bledel (Ofglen) looks as timeless and summery as ever in a floral, purple tri-tone gown by Amur Collections.
Eye catching Madeline Brewer (Ofwarren) drew all attention to her in a unique Elisabetta Franchi chiffon tooled bright yellow dress and shiny metallic silver pumps, styled by Penny Lovell.
Previous Orange is the New Black star, Samira Wiley (Moira) arrived exuberating energy wearing a double-button black blazer-styled L’Agence dress. Smiling from ear-to-ear all night long.
Celebrity fans of the show Chrissy Teigen and Kylie Jenner were also in appearance, claiming they love the show and “binge watched the whole series”.
“The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, envisions America after a second civil war, and focuses on handmaid Offred (Moss), whose real name is June, forced into child-bearing servitude for a prominent couple. And although the dystopian nightmare facing the handmaids in the theocratic Republic of Gilead (formerly America’s East Coast) has grown more oppressive and violent, the second season has featured themes of growing rebellion among the captives.
The acclaim surrounding the series has been heightened by its relevance to current hot-button issues, including women’s rights, the #MeToo movement and sweeping deportation of immigrants.
Keep your eyes peeled for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards September 17, 2018. This cast is predicted to win in many of your favorite categories.
