Nicola Coughlan's Darling Dress Collection Would Defy the Featheringtons' Wildest Dreams

Nicola Coughlan wears many elaborate and colorful gowns as Penelope Featherington in Netflix's Bridgerton, but the actress's real-life style is equally (if not more) impressive. The Derry Girls star sets the standard for finding the optimal outfit for any occasion. Walking a red carpet? She has the dress for that. Doing virtual press at home? She knows the picture-perfect midi that'll shine over Zoom.

I've been compiling a list of my favorite looks from Nicola's Instagram feed thus far, for further inspiration. (You know, just in case we're able to go out again in 2021.) For now, I'll spend time admiring her many well-styled dresses, and I suggest you do the same. Check out a few of her best outfits, ahead.
