The costumer mines the sometimes questionable fashions of the ’80s to provide stylish alternatives for Keri Russell’s beleaguered heroine. By Kate Bennett
Photograph of Gering by Michael Williams.

When it comes to The Americans, the counter-intelligence drama set to premiere its third season on FX in January, costume designer Jenny Gering’s biggest issue is creating memorable looks for a main character whose job is to stay under the radar and blend in. Actress Keri Russell plays Elizabeth Jennings, a spy/wife/mom living in the DC ’burbs in the early 1980s, and while she spends a good deal of time in disguise, she manages to skip the worst of the decade’s fashion. Here, Gering explains the character’s sartorial choices. (Also check out our Q&A with former House of Cards costume designer Tom Broecker.)

How did you research Washington fashion in the ’80s?

It was a decade and an administration that reveled in “society,” and as such, social events were well-documented and gave a view to certain aspects of life in DC. 

What are a few essential items for Kerri Russell’s character? 

Elizabeth [Jennings, Russell’s character] loves a silk blouse, a gold chain, a high-heeled boot, and a pair of tight jeans.

Does her secret life impact her style?

Her goal is to blend in and look as “normal” as possible. She doesn’t need to be a wallflower, but she never wants to appear unusual.

Russell is something of a fashion icon in real life. Does she weigh in on the outfits? 

Keri always has a say in her costumes. Her role is very physically demanding, and she needs to be able to do stunts if necessary. She also knows what she wants to express through her characters; we work together to make that happen.

How should a young, modern Washingtonian incorporate some of the good parts of ’80s fashion into a professional wardrobe? 

Nancy Reagan red is always a winner. It’s a color that has an impact, and it screams confidence. 

Tom Broecker and Jenny Gering will talk more about Washington and fashion with Kate Bennett on September 17 at the Smithsonian’s S. Dillon Ripley Center.

The wardrobe pro talks about how he created the look for ultimate DC power chick Claire Underwood. By Kate Bennett

Tom Broecker knows a thing or two about dressing powerful women. The costume designer was responsible for outfitting House of Cards' Claire Underwood in sleek power ensembles for the Netflix drama's first season, and is in town next week for a Smithsonian Associates panel discussion with The Americans costume designer Jenny Gering. We chatted with Broecker about how he envisioned the fashion for the show, how Robin Wright and her costumes helped mold the character of Claire Underwood, and whether Washington can sustain the fashion revolution inspired by complex (sometimes villainous) female leads. (Check out our Q&A with Gering here.) 

Photograph of Tom Broecker by Andrew Egan.

Although we are coming into our own when it comes to fashion, did Washington’s history as a not-so-stylish city have any effect on your choices when coming up with Claire Underwood’s look?

It’s very interesting with Claire. I never thought of her in terms of Washington, DC. I thought of her in terms of the world, almost outside of Washington. Because she was not really a part of either world—the Hill or the media—I wanted her to have a more ousider feel.

Do you see Claire's clothes as serving as her DC “armor”?

I believe so, yes, very much so. [She] was designed that way. I believe we all use clothes to help us navigate our lives; whether we’re conscious of that or not is another thing. But we all know clothes can project ideas and reflect our moods and emotions.

Why doesn’t Claire ever wear patterns? Her looks are primarily neutral solids.

Sometimes on camera a pattern can look cheap, and it can date itself pretty quickly. It also pulls focus away from the face, and Robin [Wright] has such an amazing face—it shows so much emotion, and we did not want to distract from that.

What about color? 

You need to know when and how to use it. Red, for example, has a lot of psychological and political meaning, so we wanted to make sure we only used color when it was right, either for the character or the scene.

What are Claire’s key power pieces?

A great pair of heels, a tailored blouse, a tailored skirt, and a great coat.

If you could give any Claire Underwoods in the making out there a piece of advice when it comes to using fashion to their advantage, what would it be?

Do not ever sell yourself short. You do not have to wear pants in order to go toe to toe with men; wear what makes you feel confident, intelligent, and sexy. And find a good tailor.
