From 'Killing Eve' to Fashion Week, why Jodie Comer is a sartorial icon worth watching

September is the most pivotal month in the sartorial calendar with designers, street style stars and A-list names jet-setting across the globe in the spirit of Fashion Week.

But it’s not necessarily the runway that you need to look to for wardrobe inspiration, as the FROW readily welcomed a new fixture to its exclusive club this season: Jodie Comer.

The breakout star of BBC3’s ‘Killing Eve’ has undoubtedly steered the nation’s conversation in recent weeks with her role as assassin Villanelle proving a hot deskside topic. The actress leads in the spy thriller alongside Sandra Oh – an ambitious MI5 agent on the hunt for Villanelle.

Though it’s not merely ‘Fleabag’ creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s script which leaves viewers glued to the small screen but Comer’s killer wardrobe

In the second episode of the cat-and-mouse thriller, Villanelle stomps into a psychiatrist appointment decked in unmistakable Molly Goddard frills and those Balenciaga boots – a surprisingly Insta-worthy moment for the BBC.

But it doesn’t stop there. Dubbed the “most fashionable show on TV” by Vogue, the show is littered with (quite literally) to-die-for outfits.

Dreamt up by costume designer Phoebe de Gay, fashion magpie Villanelle gets away with murder in a slick Dries van Noten suit while we still can’t shake one scene-stealing Miu Miu bomber jacket from our minds.

So it was only to be expected that the industry would soon snap up the 25-year-old and make room for our new go-to muse on the FROW.
