The Queen’s Gambit is Netflix’s most watched sequence thus far. Chess grasp Beth Harmon (performed by Anya Taylor-Joy) captivated viewers along with her wit, ardour, and depth, however it was her ’60s wardrobe designed and sourced by costumer Gabrielle Binder that gave the sequence its iconic aspect. Wonder the place the costumes at the moment are? Taylor-Joy stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to share how she was gifted all of her character’s outfits, her affinity with Beth Harmon, and why she sadly will not be capable of put on any of these beautiful garments.
“When I first read the book, I was so in love with Beth, instantly”, Taylor-Joy informed Colbert. “And I think people follow passion, so I felt impassioned by chess when I finished reading the book. However, that being said, I think there’s thinking something will go down well and then there’s the mind-boggling numbers that you’ve just discussed with me. So, I don’t think any sane person prepares for something like that.”
“Do you get to keep these?” requested Colbert. Taylor-Joy defined that “because Gabrielle and I worked so closely during the show, she just said ‘Honestly, babe, they’re yours. We found them together and you, Beth, the line is very blurry, so you should just take them home’. And I was just overwhelmed by that kindness because I really wanted to keep a bit of Beth with me,” stated Taylor-Joy. “However, the show is so successful, those clothes are currently in a museum. So, I do not know when I will get my clothes back.” She added that she can’t put on them exterior anyway as a result of though they’re so lovely, folks may suppose she has misplaced her thoughts, and she or he might by no means get employed for an additional job once more, she joked. “These beautiful costumes will parade around in my room for my own enjoyment.”
