It’s not just about the kilts in the second season of Outlander.
In preparation for the drama’s action-packed year on Starz, costumer designer Terry Dresbach set aside the heavy tartans to make way for lots of sumptuous silks, like these exquisite togs that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) wear to the King’s stables in France. Here, Dresbach talks why it was necessary to almost break the bank to costume Claire and Jamie, who infiltrate opulent French society this season in an effort to stop the Battle of Culloden.
For more details about the Claire’s luscious dress — and where Dresbach found the fabric — pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now or available for purchase here. See the exclusive first look in full below.
It’s not just about the kilts anymore. In the upcoming second season of Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) unite to stop the Battle of Culloden. And as part of a plan to infiltrate the Jacobite Rebellion, the pair travel to Paris led by Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower). With the help of Jamie’s cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah), the sexy duo manage to work their way into opulent French society. Which means they needed to look the part — the usual heavy tartans had to make way for sumptuous silk costumes fitting for the upper class. –Lynette Rice
