Abigail Masham from The Favourite

In The Favourite, Abigail Masham (played by Emma Stone) is the picture of demure innocence. Until someone gets in her way. Her own cousin isn’t safe from Abigail’s quest for security and power. Though in a world as tumultuous as the English royal court, who can blame her?

Period costumes are always a little difficult unless you sew your own. But there are some options that get you close. A simple black dress mimics Anne’s generally unassuming daily style, especially once you add a lace collar. A pannier keeps your skirt full while thigh high socks – held in place with double sided fashion tape – and heels complete the outfit.

Round out the look by styling the wig using this tutorial. It is technically for Elizabeth Swan but is a great low profile style for costume from around the same period.

Cruella de Vil from Cruella

Emma Stone takes on the titular role of the iconic Disney villain Cruella de Vil in the live action movie Cruella.  The film is an origin story, tracing Cruella’s beginnings to 1970s London where she was once a young fashion designer named Estella before she became obsessed with using the fur of dogs in her clothing creations–especially Dalmatians.  Cruella’s costuming is exceptional, as is to be expected of such an iconic and fashionable character since her debut in 1961’s 101 Dalmatians.  Whether you choose to emulate Estella’s redheaded beginnings, or go full villain with Cruella’s signature black and white locks, try to focus on the overall silhouette rather than getting the pieces exactly right.  And don’t forget to bring her signature attitude… brilliant, bad, and a little bit mad.
