Rachel Brosnahan brought a red hot look to the season five premiere of The wonderful Mrs. Maisel in New York City, wearing a Georges Hobeika corset dress and matching red Paris Texas mules.
Her style for the final season premiere was inspired by her onscreen persona, the eponymous Midge Maisel, but it was also a chance for Brosnahan to bring some of her personality to the red carpet.
“My stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn and I wanted to nod to Maisel and Midge with the bold color and matching shoes, but I also wanted it to feel modern and more reflective of me as a person outside of the show as I go into this next chapter,” Brosnahan shares with The Hollywood Reporter.
The bold dress inspired Brosnahan’s makeup artist Lisa Aharon and hairstylist DJ Quintero to create a look that “felt a little edgy but also relaxed and confident,” the actress says. “We chose to make my eyes pop with dark colors and wear my hair loose with a little messy texture.”
Before sitting down for hair and makeup, she prepped her skin with Clarins products. “For me, having beautiful skin is the most important part of any makeup look,” she says. “We started with a sheet mask and then used it La Cream and the new tool from the Clarins Precious line to hydrate my skin and gently shape my face before applying makeup.”
After winning over audiences as the charming and determined Mrs. Maisel for five seasons, Brosnahan is still in the process of finishing the Prime Video series.
“It feels surreal,” she says. “We finished filming in November, but because the season hasn’t aired yet, it feels like we haven’t said a final goodbye yet. But most of the time, we’re all so proud — of this thing that we made and that we got to be a part of something that made such a big impact on the public — and thankful.
The wonderful Mrs. Maisel will premiere on April 14 with a three-episode premiere. New episodes air weekly on Fridays until the series finale on May 26. Viewers can expect Midge to continue “‘Go forward’ and fight for her rise to stardom – equipped with her quick wit and sharp tongue, and nothing else to lose,” the logline reads.
Showrunners Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino previously spoke with them The Hollywood Reporter about ending the series after five seasons.
“We always had a general ending point in mind for the series, but it was somewhere on four or five or six, or something like that. And it just seemed to fit into season five,” Palladino said.
Sherman-Palladino added: “When it was five o’clock and out, we sat down and said, ‘Okay, what do we have to do now to make sure we hold the landing?’ Because that’s the most important thing.”
