Emily Dickinson from Dickinson

Emily Dickinson’s life is the stuff of literary class lessons and book foreword fodder. But in the hands of Alena Smith and Hailee Steinfeld, Dickinson’s life takes on new glamour, pain, and style. The new approach brings Dickinson to life in a way few class syllabi could hope to. And it does it with a style all its own.

Given the show’s unique style, there are a range of looks to choose from. To get the look featured here, however, you’ll need to start with a red ballgown. After that, match red lipstick and flats to the gown, then style a brunette wig into the loose strands and updo Dickinson wears. Round out the look with a stunning leather journal for writing down all of your own brilliant ideas!
