    Among the many royal-worthy jewels on display: Delicate petal earrings and shimmering pearl clutches to rival the diamond of the season. I suspect even Her Majesty the Queen would approve.

    SHONDA ON BRIDGERTON

    Powerhouse producer, showrunner, and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes reveals what’s in her Netflix queue, the secret to the series’ viral styles, and clues on what’s to come in season two.

    Q: What initially drew you to the Bridgerton book series, and why were you excited to bring it to life on-screen? A: The magic of Julia Quinn’s books is they feel both specific and universal. They were so much fun to read, and I couldn’t wait to tell the stories of the interesting, complex women at the center of each of the books.

    Q: The fashion in Bridgerton is almost as swoon-worthy as the love stories—what was the creative process behind the costume design like? A: We knew from the start that the fashion in Bridgerton would be a major focal point for the series. Ellen Mirojnick and her team did an incredible job creating these custom looks which were authentic to the time period while weaving in modern elements.

    Q: Which character’s style do you covet? A: It could be a lot for an everyday look, but I would absolutely love to steal Queen Charlotte’s wardrobe.

    Q: Bridgerton inspired TikTok’s “Regencycore” trend and the return of empire-waist dresses—were you surprised by how the show’s aesthetic has resonated?
    A: It has been so satisfying to see the fans embrace the overall style from the show. From something as casual as a smocked dress to the major fashion houses incorporating Regency style into their runway looks, I love it. Audiences can’t seem to get enough.

    Q: What’s in your Netflix queue right now?
    A: Right now I am writing, so I am purposely not watching anything fictional. But I am obsessed with School of Chocolate and Nailed It!

    Q: Can you give us any hints about what’s to come in Bridgerton season two?
    A: Season two is so much fun. In addition to Anthony’s search for love, one of my favorite parts of this season is watching what happens now that we know the identity of Lady Whistledown. Seeing the behind the scenes of what goes into living a double life is what I was waiting for.
