The Secret Behind “the Bridgerton Glow-Up”
2024/06/23

From the dazzling ballrooms of Regency London to the screen, Netflix’s "Bridgerton" continues to captivate audiences with more than just its romantic entanglements and scandalous secrets. A particular allure that fans cannot ignore is the remarkable transformation—aptly dubbed "the Bridgerton Glow-Up"—that befalls its characters each season. This phenomenon isn't just about superficial makeovers; it's a visual narrative that intertwines with character growth and story development.

Behind the Curtain of Beauty: Crafting the Bridgerton Aesthetic

At the heart of this enchanting metamorphosis lies the meticulous artistry of Erika Ökvist, the show's hair and makeup designer. In a recent interview with Slate, Ökvist peels back the layers of what goes into creating the iconic looks of "Bridgerton." She reveals that every change—from Penelope’s evolution into a confident woman to Colin’s transition into a matured gentleman—is intricately tied to the characters’ journeys.

Each season, as the narrative unfolds, so too do the characters evolve visually. Take Penelope Featherington, for instance, whose metamorphosis from a shy debutante to a woman asserting her independence is reflected in her style. Ökvist explains how Penelope’s makeup and wardrobe choices shift from pastel innocence to bold, structured elegance, mirroring her newfound confidence and defiance against societal norms.
