The Clothes Of The Starter Wife Stir Up Some Wardrobe Envy
October 13, 2008
Friday nights used to be for going out. However, with this economy, who can really afford it? For those looking for an alternative to Friday night out, check out USA’s The Starter Wife, where Debra Messing plays a recently jilted Hollywood divorcee starting all over again in a jaded, materialistic town – and a fabulous wardrobe.
I interviewed the stylist for the show, Agata Maskiewics, about the gorgeous clothes Debra Messing wears. Maskiewics says the key to the wardrobe is the jewelry, especially the mixed metals you’ll see layered on Messing this year. She pairs this with great denim, and shops for the show online at Net-a-Porter, Nina & Lola, and Zappos.
This denim-plus-fabulous accessories theory is no better explained than this look where Molly is trying on these gorgeous Christian Louboutin Bourge Zeppa boots ($1375) in a fabulous MICHAEL Michael Kors black turtleneck sweater ($89.50), 7 for all Mankind Roxanne jeans ($155) and a Phillip Lim 3.1 boyfriend blazer ($425). Any of these pieces are great investment injections to your own wardrobe. Or you can just watch the show and shop vicariously through Molly’s closet.
