Ridley Duchannes (Emmy Rossum)

“Riddley is probably the showiest of the characters. Her clothing reflects a certain sexuality because she’s a siren, meaning she can get people – especially men—to do her bidding. There’s a lot of sheer, body hugging, a lot of showing off of skin and body,” Kurland says of Rossum’s vampy look. “There’s a certain allure to all her clothing, and the colors also kind of range from dark jewel tones to black.” And Ridley has some serious shades. “The sunglasses were inspired by Barbara Stanwyck’s glasses in Double Indemnity. That was my tipping-off point, the hiding behind her sunglasses,” says Kurland. “The’ve got a nice vintage quality to them.”
