"She was one character that was really, obviously, worked on from top to bottom," Cynthia told me. "In every fitting photo, we put [Momona's] hair up, we've done the earrings and scrunchies and the barrettes and all the rings, the jewelry. We adorned her."
"A character like [Claudia] can start looking untouchable or unattainable or unreal or inaccessible" if there isn't any restraint in the way she dresses.
Cynthia and her shoppers had a variety of Konplott jewelry from designer Miranda Konstantinidou to choose from, as well as fruit earrings from Claire's. They even assembled their own pair of lemon earrings from the bauble off of key chains. "It's something that Claudia would do, right?"
"Even her overalls — if you watch throughout the series, it's a little hard to tell . . . but her overalls were something that she painted and appliqued and wrote on throughout the series," she continued. "We tried to translate that to her clothes because that's who she is. She's always doodling and painting and creating, and she's her own canvas in a way."
