Lipstick Jungle kicked off with a surprising dose of dark humor last night. In the opening, the three leading ladies were tipsily giggling a funeral – that we later learn was for Nico’s husband, who she had just learned was having a pretty extensive affair with a student (He got her pregnant! He was paying for her orthodontia!).
But – and it feels a little weird to say – the clothes were stellar as always. Even at the funeral.
Pieces in purple, a fall favorite this year, kept popping up onscreen.
Wendy wears this flattering Alberta Ferretti ruched satin dress ($1,225), and if you watch closely you’ll see Nico in Elie Tahari’s chic, sleek Breydon Dress ($220, was $368). Even Victory Ford’s feminine-eclectic style included the color, in the form of a simple cardigan like this one from BCBG ($138) expertly paired with a full metallic skirt ($325) by Phillip Lim.
The women were also seen sporting several different takes on pearls – Wendy’s ribbon-adorned necklace looks more casual, while Wendy and Nico both paired their black dresses with several strands.
Get Wendy’s new-school pearl look with this satin-wrapped glass-pearl necklace ($48). This tri-strand necklace ($7.80) accomplishes the luxe multi-strand look on a budget, while this Majorica necklace ($795) mimics Wendy’s colored pearls.
