And just like that: why Lisa (and her stepmom!) Is the show’s Breakout-style star


Even when Lisa is wearing a flashier color or a bolder print, she still wears it effortlessly. The other characters on the show tend to feel overly stylish, but Lisa always does a great job. Carrie will have bodega coffee in a tulle skirt, but Lisa will wear a hot pink Elzinga blazer and bright yellow Max Mara shorts to pick up her kids and look realistic (if raised). All together the rooms are extra colorful, maybe even blinding, but it just doesn’t feel too much for 8 o’clock in the morning. It’s like she just got out of bed and put it all on.

The grand style also seems to work in the Wexley house. His stepmother, Eunice Wexley (played by Pat Bowie), is also a style star. Lisa first describes Eunice to Charlotte as “a world-renowned concert pianist and an even more accomplished pain in the ass,” but they share a strong aesthetic. During the dinner scene, Eunice wears a monochrome gray look with a metallic silver coat; At her grandson’s piano recital, Eunice slips into a pink satin evening coat, finished with a glamorous cream scarf. Truly dividual.

With the rest of the series set to air in the coming weeks, we can only hope Lisa and Eunice get the airtime they deserve. From what we’ve seen so far, they’re already injecting some stellar fad into the mix. Yes, they might be side characters, but their closets deserve some top-notch treatment. Careful, Carrie!
