From Villanelle’s ‘goofy couture’ to Eve’s green scarf, clothes are integral to this cat-and-mouse thriller
You can tell a TV villain has made their mark on popular culture if they become a Halloween costume. This week, for every Trumpian wig or handmaid’s bonnet seen at a Halloween party, there was a giant pink dress based on the one worn by the assassin Villanelle, Killing Eve’s antihero.
It has become impossible to talk about the BBC’s eight-part hit – the final instalment of which airs on BBC One on Saturday – without talking about the clothes. Yes, the pink organza dress by Molly Goddard worn with black Balenciaga boots in episode three that subsequently broke the internet, but also what was to come.
