Nashville’s Rayna (Connie Britton) and Juliette’s (Hayden Panettiere) stage costumes had sequins all over which was paired with a pair of jeans. The ladies casual dress always tailored to the T looked insanely chic.
The country series’ actresses have one woman in common and she is Susie DeSanto, costume designer for Nashville. DeSanto told US Weekly that they single handedly keep J Brand in business. They have a lot of their denims along with lots of leather pieces. She also has the label Kate Middleton along with the J Brand for outdoor events. She has upcoming accessories collaboration with Stella & Dot. She also claims to shop Frame and Stella McCartney for the closet of Britton’s character as they look good on her.
She frequently shops Current/Elliot and Rag & Bone for both the girls on show and especially for Panettiere. She actually finds it funny as they have collected many pair pants and leather jackets which she finds it crazy. However she admits that it never stops there and they shop again for jeans and leather jackets. She also thanks that her visit to Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus’ Tennessee home shared with wife Allison Alderson, she never gets beaten down for her oversized costume budget.
She said when DeMarcus and Alderson were on their show and she had to pick up clothes for the episodes, she was actually surprised to see 700 leather jackets in varied colors and blouses which resembled Rayna James’ closet. She also quips that she wishes she could get into Faith Hill’s closet which will definitely have something to talk about. The costumes are definitely fun and the actors make it all the more happening. DeSanto says once the actors get into their clothes they undeniably get into the character and start walking and talking like the characters. She believes personal taste is also important and everyone must wear what they actually like.
