How Victoria and The Serpent Shape Jenna Coleman's Personal Style
Jenna Coleman found her signature style in 2016 following her role as Queen Victoria in ITV's Victoria. Before playing the monarch, Coleman's fashion sense was noticeably classic, with lots of maxi-length printed dresses in traditional silhouettes, but it became even more refined while playing the queen. In addition to the royal references, Coleman's role as the stylish '70s criminal Marie-Andrée "Monique" Leclerc in The Serpent had a sartorial impact on summer 2021 fashion trends, like wide-leg trousers and babushka scarves, as well as on Coleman's own post-lockdown outfits.
Coleman loves a printed midi dress in a richly textured fabric like jacquard, velvet, bouclé, or lace. When choosing pieces, she often goes for shades of blue, white, grey, or black, as well as floral prints. Ruffles, puff sleeves, and a modest neckline are always welcomed on Coleman's more Victorian-inspired outfits, but she's also open to a low-key, '70s-inspired dress, like the ones worn in The Serpent. With Coleman's next major role being Johanna Constantine in the 2021 Netflix horror series The Sandman, we are keen to see how her style continues to evolve.
