If you haven’t yet seen BBC America’s new series Killing Eve do yourselves a favour and watch it. Not only does it feature two strong female leads playing cat and mouse games with each other across Europe. It also features a truly stylish assassin, the villainous Villanelle who combines classic sophistication with a quirky femininity. Seriously who wouldn’t spend their hard earned assassination money on glamorous outfits and a chic Parisian apartment. So here’s a review of all of her best looks from season 1.
[POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD]
There is nothing like a Burberry Coat, a Lanvin blouse, Balenciaga boots and vertical striped pants for strolling around Paris after assassinating a politician in Vienna.
Everyone needs a minty blue Chloe blouse, Paige denim shorts and Doc Martens for a motorbike ride around Tuscany. You also can’t forget the poison encased in a hairpin to make a sweet updo.
Villanelle manages to steal a gorgeous Burberry Lace Dress from a woman whose husband she has been contracted to kill. Classy huh?
In the final moments of episode 1, Villanelle wears a gorgeous ETRO Silk Printed Blouse.
Villanelle is the type of girl that always has the perfect outfit for strolling around Paris when she’s not killing people. This Phillip Lim Floral Cloque Bomber Jacket adds a touch of youthful quirkiness to an already sophisticated ensemble.
What do you do when your being assessed for your psychopathic qualities? Wear a bright pink Molly Goddard dress that highlights your innocence and femininity of course.
This is the type of look that reads ‘stalker chic with a hint of inflicting multiple stab wounds in a German nightclub.’ All you need to complete this look is a Dries Van Noten Brocade Printed Blazer with a green scarf stolen from the woman investigating you.
For a post assassination de-briefing over breakfast what’s better than a pair of metallic floral pajamas by Erdem.
Everyone should know that this combination is the perfect outfit for entering a Russian prison. Too bad she probably had to leave this coat behind after her inevitable escape from prison.
Villanelle has truly had some amazing fashion moments in season 1. Killing eve has been renewed for a second season so I can’t wait to see what’s in store for season 2.
