Palm Royale’s Costume Designer Alix Friedberg Talks 60s Fashion

Star-stuffed is an understatement: Kristen Wigg takes on the central position of the plucky Simmons, a former pageant woman who, having grown bored with her native, lacklustre Tennessee and with an insatiable urge for food for all issues glamorous, makes her technique to Florida’s technicolour Palm Seashore with one objective: to turn into a any individual. Her route of alternative? By way of the gilded, impenetrable gates of the Palm Royale, an opulent, members-only sanctum the place excessive society girls spend their days knocking again cocktails, backstabbing for sport and having fun with diversified bodily pursuits with their limber tennis instructors. Their husbands? They busy themselves making ill-advised enterprise offers, enjoying boozy rounds of golf and evading the Feds. Simmons desires in, and she or he’s not going to let just a little factor like being penniless stand in her method.
