Elisha Cuthbert's 'Happy Endings' Designer Dishes on Set Style
Six adult friends dealing with love and relationships while navigating their own professional and personal lives. It might sound a lot like Friends, but it’s actually ABC’s new series, Happy Endings, which examines what happens to friendships when a couple splits. Though the subject matter can be touchy, the fashion looks totally fun! In this behind-the-scenes video, the show’s costume designer, Keri Smith, talks about dressing the female stars for their roles in looks inspired by Banana Republic. “It’s always exciting to get the script,” she says. “I love reading it and seeing what the kids are up to.” Those ‘kids’ include 24‘s Elisha Cuthbert, who plays free-spirit Alex. “I love Alex’s character, and I love dressing Alex,” shares Smith, who says the look she created for the role is a mix of urban and bohemian. “[She] loves to wear a lot of ruffly florals and organic jewelry. She’s a little less blingy.” Jane, played by Eliza Coupe, is “more professional,” Smith says, and dresses in a sophisticated style. Then there’s Penny, SNL‘s Casey Wilson, who’s “more the casual weekend gal,” Smith says. “Penny’s great because I think everybody relates to Penny.” We’ll find out! Happy Endings premieres tonight on ABC.
