Please M&S do a Claire Underwood collection. I promise I will buy lots.

Feel free to add your fantasy collection.

I would TOTALLY buy that!! Wouldn't look like CU in it, but hey ho.

Yes! Though preferably not by M&S tbh... I don't really get why the retail and entertainment industry haven't capitalised on this yet, I'm not all that interested in celebs/quasi-fashion icons and their wardrobes or DVD box sets for that matter but fictional characters and their clothes, yes! Sometimes I look at Game of Thrones and think, "those would make for a nice night dress." And obviously, Mad Men.

M&S can do a Hyacinth Bucket/Bouquet collaboration grin.

Alicia Florrick and Diane Lockhart from The Good Wife.

Olivia Pope from Scandal.

Joan from Mad Men.

I would love the Claire Underwood collection too.

Difficult to achieve on a low budget, most of Claire underwood 's wardrobe are custom made for the show,by altuzarra which is very ,very expensive,they did a target collab ,and it was horrible,
But surpringly ,Claire's biggest hit,the sweater and white shirt combo, is not very difficult to achieve as the sweater is by mid range brand sandro,

I would love the Claire Underwood collection too and I don't think it would be too difficult for the high street to replicate.

I clicked because I though it was a link. I'd love it. Would need her figure too though!!

Robin Wright is so beautiful in such an understated way. I'd love her bone structure.

I took a photo of Claire Underwood to the hairdressers...and asked him to replicate it. Well....I don't look exactly like her....but wish I did. I think she is a good 6 inches taller than me, and probably a couple of sizes below me. grin

Also Gillian Anderson in that murder thing. Also something Miss Fisher inspired.

Jessica Pearson from Suits. Not that I would ever have somewhere to wear her outfits but she always looks amazing! Actually all the women have fab outfits (albeit a bit sexy for a law firm?)

ijustwanttobeme Thu 14-Apr-16 14:44:57

Ooh, yeah I'd buy from there.

I'd also like a Rachel Zane/Jessica Pearson (Suits) collection.

All in petite please, as I'm only 4' 11 grin

I hoped this was real! sad

Yes to Joan in Mad Men too.

I'd also like Chuck's wardrobe from Pushing Daisies.

MooMinCow Thu 14-Apr-16 14:51:49

Yes to Rachel Zane Ijustwant. I always have pencil skirt envy when I see her outfits, that all fit her perfectly!

There's a blog out there somewhere dedicated to Pam's clothes (from Jessica Jones) - lovely wrap dresses galore. ;)

There was an article about what she wore from the man responsible for her wardrobe in the Telegraph

"Of Claire’s wardrobe, a third is custom-made, a third comes courtesy of designers and the remaining is bought from high-end department stores, such as Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman. Absolutely everything is tailored to Wright’s frame on a mannequin built to her exact proportions. “I would tailor the shoes if I could!” says Harris.

While Harris has no trouble securing high-end brands for the show, she can also be credited for introducing smaller labels to the House of Cards audience. In the series, New York designers favoured by Michelle Obama such as Derek Lam and Joseph Altuzarra sit alongside Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Armani and Ralph Lauren, who created one of Claire’s most talked-about dresses from the last season: the silver gown she wore when hosting the state dinner for the Russian president."

Whoops - Kemal Harris is a woman not a man.
