Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

You won't look like you just got done playing the '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess.

Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

Instead of putting together an elaborate runway show customary for most brands during Fashion Week, London-based fashion brand, Self-Portrait showcased its fall '21 collection starring Phoebe Dynevor of the period-drama, Bridgerton.

I couldn't contain my excitement as I gushed over the clothing!

Within the photos, Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton on the Netflix series, can be seen adorned with gems, bows, sparkles, and lace in likeness to her character.



The actress was also seen wearing pastel and accent colors, puff-sleeves, and corset dresses which was awesome because it is a modern take on the magical world of Regencycore.


I've always appreciated the way this particular style of dressing looked in films and TV shows. Still, anytime I would wear a puff sleeve or try out statement jewelry pieces, I ended up looking like I just got done playing the classic '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess, instead of a fashionista.

Moreover, Dynevor told British Vogue that working with Self- Portrait's founder and creative director, Han Chong, was a breeze.

"It's funny, I think that it's completely coincidental that there is this amazing thread that runs through what I wore on Bridgerton and Han Chong's collections, which is interesting as he designed the collection before the show had come out," said Dynevor.

"But beyond that, I feel like Self-Portrait really has its eye on a much more modern and real way of dressing."

I second that!

Although Chong designed this 28-piece collection before Bridgerton entered the hearts and romantic dreams of over 82 million viewers, it seems right on par with the show's essence despite the ensembles' modernity.


The collection contains co-ords, dresses, and other items that resemble modern takes on the gowns, waistcoats, and corsets shown on the series.



If you are someone like me who wants to explore the Regencycore look and vibe without looking like you're playing dress-up, take a look at Self-Portrait's fall '21 collection, which will be available in July.

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
