Body of Proof: Fashion Favorites


Body of Proof may have ended, but its fashion legacy will live on! The show has made wearing 4inch+ shoes to work (and particularly crime scenes,) absolutely acceptable, as well as matching a mix of colorful high and low designer fashion.

Body of Proof inspired me to reassess my own wardrobe, filling in the gaps with stand out classic pieces that will stand the test of time. The show encouraged me to splurge in a little Alexander McQueen, Prada as well as finding similar pieces on a more affordable budget.

So what were my favorite looks from the series?

This Alexander McQueen scarf is so fantastic that I purchased one for my own wardrobe!

This orange riding jacket from Prada was a stunner to open Season 3.

This Tory Burch Emmy Leather Jacket is also one of my favorites- too bad I missed a chance to purchase it!

Megan Hunt wears a great color palette, and this striking red coat with side button detail (left) and this purple and red cardigan are simply perfect.

The Prada Saffiano bag has to be one of the show's standout pieces. Megan has it in both red (above,) black and in Season 3, debuted a patent purple model. I invested in the black version earlier this year, and whilst it was expensive, I know the bag will last for a lifetime.

Other standout looks is this great Alexander McQueen number from the Season 2 premiere, and these great leopard pumps from Series 3. I took the plunge and purchased a similar pair from J Crew!

Megan's accessories are always classic with a twist, and these cat's eyes sunglasses are a great indicator of the character's personality.

I've interviewed Body of Proof Costume Designer Susanna Puisto for Political Style on two occasions (here and here,) and it's great to hear about her favorite pieces!

"This green velvet blazer by Gucci scored high in our Costume Department, as did the burnt orange over the knee boots."

"Skinny pants and jeans were also some of my favorite looks to dress Dana in,"said Susanna. I personally love the purple and green combo (especially with the patent Prada bag,) and the black and purple is a great look for a dress down day at the office.

"This Ann Demeulemeester black asymmetric velvet coat is a firm favorite amongst the Costume Department, and it is great to re-use pieces from Season 1 and 2."

"This turquoise leather trench coat by Burberry was a favorite of my assistant, Caroline!"

"We all loved this orange cape that made a welcome comeback in Season 3,"Susanna revealed. It's one of my faves too!

Susanna is perhaps most proud of three couture dresses that she designed and created along with her team for Season 2. "I designed a purple silk charmeuse that Megan wore for a dinner with her mother, the green silk dress for the medical awards ceremony (above,) and a great purple tweed dress (also above) with Esther Hamboyan who created the dresses for the film The Artist. It was a joy to see them on screen!"

The big question... what were Dana Delany's favorite costumes?

"Dana loved this gorgeous orange dress by L'Wren Scott, and these pair of red candy apple pumps by Prada. In fact, she loved anything that was by Prada! Puisto
