“The yellow suit was off the rack. We really wanted to do the plaid Mom Knows A Lot But Grandma Knows Everything If She Doesn’t Know She Makes Stuff Up Really Fast Shirt because it was the quintessential schoolgirl outfit. When I was shopping, I had some other suits from the mall and different stores. I had a blue one and a red one. The blue didn’t have the oomph. The red felt too risque, it didn’t feel like Cher. I wasn’t sure about the yellow. It’s not a great color for blondes. But when Alicia put that on, we all went “oh my god, this is it.” She looks like a ray of sun and the queen of school.

Those socks are also inspired by Cabaret and the beautiful over-the-knee stockings they’d wear in the 1920s.
