Salute the queen and her dizzying hairstyles!

Dear readers, the wait is coming to an end. Bridgerton season two premieres this Friday on Netflix, and in the words of Queen Charlotte herself, we want to be entertained!

Here’s what we know from the latest trailer: According to Julia Quinn’s book series, this season centers on Bridgerton’s oldest offspring, Anthony, and his luxurious love triangle involving the Sharma sisters. Desperate to find the perfect viscountess for his viscount status, he quickly sets his sights on Ton’s new arrival, Edwina (Charithra Chandran). Courting her, however, becomes a challenge as her older sister Kate (Simone Ashley) disapproves of the match. In one Pride and Prejudice-esque montage, the two appear to be engaged in a battle of wits but can’t seem to take their eyes off each other – are you fainting yet?

We also get glimpses of outspoken Eloise in the company of a new cutie herself, and everyone’s favorite non-couple Penelope and Colin share a few scenes as well. But beyond the romance, what we’re here for are the iconic lines delivered by the even more iconic Queen Charlotte, delightfully played by Golda Rosheuvel. Besides being in total mood, she has one of the most elaborate wardrobes we’ve ever seen (“Flawless, my dear”), filled with sky-high wigs, ornate corsets, and abundant bustles.

FASHION discussed with the queen what we can expect from the costumes of Bridgerton season two, what it’s like to wear a corset for 12 hours a day and how she walks in those crazy wigs.

Absoutely. I can’t wait for the world to see what Erika Okvisthairdresser and make-up artist and [costume designer] Sophie Canale created for season two. We bring fabulous looks and iconic looks.

Last season, The Duke was known for wearing red, and of course the Bridgertons are famous for their blue. Which color do you think represents the queen?

All the colors of the rainbow! There’s nothing she won’t wear.

How long does it take you to put on your full costume?

Depends on the day but average two hours.

How do you manage to wear these extreme wigs? Walking must be such a struggle!

Also depends on the wig. The first season was tricky at times; they were works of art created by Adam James Phillips. In season two, we have the brilliant Erika Okvist and Emma Ridley creating the masterpieces. I get involved and collaborate with them, and this season you will always see the works of art that we know and love, but also pieces that have been adapted and carefully designed to weigh less for me on a day. shooting.

What is the heaviest wig to wear (so far)?

There’s a beautiful one in season two, which was particularly gorgeous and heavy.

What was your favorite outfit to wear?

They’re all so glorious, but I love the pink look from season one, where I’m holding one of the pom poms. But big ones are coming for season two!

What was the hardest outfit to wear?

I remember looking up how to wear a corset (I wear a double corset on the show) and found this quote [online]: ‘When you wear a corset, it pushes on your organs. They may change position or experience reduced blood flow, which may affect their proper functioning. If it lasts a long time, this damage can be permanent. Fortunately, nothing happened, but it makes you think about what women must have gone through in those days.

Have you had corset problems?

Luckily, I have the most amazing chest of drawers that I completely trust to protect my organs, so no.

Are there any dresses/hairstyles you hope to wear in the future?

Erika has such a creative mind and I’m not afraid to push boundaries, so we have so much fun coming up with ideas to present. Long may it continue!
