OK, it's time to explain those earrings!!!! In the script Alicia decides to put on the very large, sparkling earrings to distract Elsbeth. But in the editing room, all references to the earrings were cut. So suddenly Alicia is in very out of character giant earrings!! Ha! Such is the world of TV!!
2. This look on Diane is one of my all-time favorite looks from all the seasons of The Good Wife.

I just think it is the epitome of chic and elegant and was carried off beautifully by Christine Baranski. The tan and white houndstooth coat and skirt are by Akris. The cream silk charmeuse blouse with tie is designed by me. The black leather belt with bridle bit detail is by Gucci and the black suede pumps are by Dior. I hope you loved it as much as I did!

What fun to create a stereotypical clown for the show. This was challenging as the wallpaper in the scene was based on my design of the clown and had to be created in a very short amount of time. The very talented Sally Lesser of Sally Lesser Designs in NYC (www.sallylesserdesigns.com) actualized the design. Designing costumes like our clown for the show takes me out of our usual milieu and keeps my mind firing on all cylinders (well, most of the cylinders anyway)!
5. For the scene where Alicia announces her candidacy, I wanted her to be in a strong, political color.

This Andrew Gn jacket fit the bill nicely. The self belt emphasizes Julianna's tiny waist and the slightly full peplum and 3/4 sleeves keep it feminine and elegant.
6. Alicia in neutrals is fantastic.
