Everything to know about the vintage outfits in Netflix’s most stylish show of the year — The Queen’s Gambit.
The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix’s miniseries, follows the life of Beth Harmon, an American chess prodigy played by Anya Taylor-Joy. (You might recognise the actress from the latest adaptation of Emma, or the BBC crime drama, Peaky Blinders.) It’s part psychological thriller, part period piece, set against the cultural-shifting chaos of the 1950s and 1960s.
That might sound ambitious, but The Queen’s Gambit certainly didn’t fall short. The show has been celebrated for a myriad of reasons, from the acting (check out its perfect Rotten Tomatoes score) to its accurate portrayal of the board game. Its impeccable costumes, designed by Gabriele Binder, are just as worthy of a nod.
