When Jane Carlson from The Hollywood Reporter, asked me about Maggie Siff’s character’s powerful, streamlined style on the Showtime series, Billions, I said “The minute she walks through the office you know you don’t want to f–k with her.”

When Vogue.com’s Senior Culture Writer Julia Felsenthal asked me about my costume designer’s backstory on The Astronaut Wives Club, I said “We’re not doing men in great suits and women in New York silhouettes. We’re starting in middle America, and having this journey with the wives as they grow into themselves and learn about life and style.”
But I can’t go without giving props to our prop master Jonathan R. Hodges for working with costumes to source vintage styles from American Optical, Persol, and Ray-Ban. It’s one of those gray areas where costumes and props converge. Julia Felsenthal notes “The finishing touch [in] finding each woman the perfect pair of shades [is major] because nobody needs eye protection like an astronaut’s wife, for whom staring up at the sky is basically an occupational hazard.”
