I’m sure you have watched the highly addictive series on Netflix called, Bridgerton and if you haven’t streamed it by now, what are you waiting for??? It’s not like you have anything else to do and especially right now lol! Starring Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton, a young lady who makes her debut in society entering the marriage market and attracting a ton of suitors, and Rege Jean Page as the hot Duke Simon Basset, a regular Byronic hero, the show explores relationships in the “polite society” of 1800s London.
I LOVED the series and can’t wait for the new one to start soon! One thing about the show is that the period piece costumes are INSANE! All created by costume designer Ellen Mirojnick! The clothing is very drool-worthy taking place in the Regency era. By the way it was over 7,500 pieces from the show, wow! She said that she got some of her inspiration from paintings of the period. That got me to thinking, who was the best-dressed character? Did you have a favorite? I share my favorite inside with fabulous shots and check out the video clip of designer Ellen talking about designing for the show! Have a blessed day everyone!
GOLDA ROSHEUVEL as QUEEN CHARLOTTE, very serious but unique in style with lots of embroidery.
ADJOA ANDOH as LADY DANBURY, she was my all-time FAVORITE dressed character, LOVED the tiaras and high lace collars!
PHOEBE DYNEVOR as DAPHNE BRIDGERTON, very sweet and innocent looking.
REG-JEAN PAGE as SIMON BASSET, very sharp, sexy and regal!
JONATHAN BAILEY as ANTHONY BRIDGERTON, snazzy, fun and well-tailored looks.
NICOLA COUGHLAN as PENELOPE FEATHERINGTON, delicate pastels, flirty with lots of sparkle!
From Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
Bridgerton is a romantic, scandalous, and quick-witted series that celebrates the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way, and the search for a love that conquers all. The series also stars Golda Rosheuvel, Jonathan Bailey, Luke Newton, Claudia Jessie, Nicola Coughlan, Ruby Barker, Sabrina Bartlett, Ruth Gemmell, Adjoa Andoh, Polly Walker, Ben Miller, Bessie Carter and Harriet Cains and Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown. The series is inspired by Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels.
