Only Murders in the Building features some iconic costume pieces throughout the series. Mabel’s show-stopping coats and Oliver’s silk scarves were enough to turn heads, but season 2 added another stylish character. Cara Delevingne plays Alice, an intriguing artist and Mabel’s new love interest. Delevingne wore some of her own pieces while filming the Hulu series, including a nipple clamp that doubles as a necklace.
‘Only Murders in the Building’ features stunning costumes
When Mabel first appears in Only Murders in the Building, she wears an iconic yellow sweater and beanie with plaid pants. Costume designer Dana Covarrubias put a lot of thought into choosing a signature color for Mabel. She thought of a flower to symbolize Selena Gomez’s character. “The marigold really made sense for Mabel because it represents grief and loss but also resurrection,” Covarrubias told Shondaland.
“The marigold also represents creativity and artists because that’s who she is at heart: She’s an artist, she’s a painter, she’s a knitter, she’s a crafter.” The costume designer researched “what the cool kids in New York were wearing at the time” for the rest of Mabel’s first scene outfit.
The color palettes for each character have shifted slightly going into season 2. “In season one, we were very specific about which color belonged to each character — Mabel was marigold, Charles was blue, Oliver was purples and teals. In season two, we have them all wearing each other’s colors, showing that they’re becoming this one cohesive unit,” Covarrubias added.
