Teyonah Parris took to Instagram to thank her style squad for transforming her into Monica Rambeau in WandaVision. Parris made her MCU debut in the studio’s first original series ahead of what looks to be an even bigger arc. Parris will star alongside Brie Larson and Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel in Captain Marvel 2. All signs also point to her potentially appearing in the upcoming Secret Invasion series also set to air on Disney+. Before all that, though, fans knew Monica as Geraldine.
Parris was introduced as one of Wanda’s new friends in Westview, New Jersey. Although the twist had been spoiled and fans knew all along who Parris was playing, her journey in WandaVision was still an exciting one. Monica seemed to come into her own in both standing up against S.W.O.R.D. director Tyler Hayward and her development of powers from her traveling through the Hex’s border several times. Monica’s powers weren’t the only thing fans had their eyes on, though.
Parris wore various costumes throughout the series, including her period-accurate looks for the ’60s and ’70s themed episodes, and the actress took to Instagram to highlight her stylist squad. Parris posted various behind-the-scenes photos of her getting ready, including images of her in her iconic fish pants from the Brady Bunch themed episode. She also showed off pictures of her various S.W.O.R.D. outfits, including the astronaut-like outfit she wore through the Hex when gaining her powers. Check out the full post below:
There’s no denying the fact that Parris was serving some truly iconic looks throughout the series. Through the period-friendly costumes all the way up to the modern-day, Parris, and the rest of the cast, looked great. This aspect is especially important for a show like WandaVision in which its characters travel through the decades. Each episode had to look totally unique while emulating the iconic styles of an entire ten-year period.
Fortunately, WandaVision‘s stylists pulled it off, and it’s nice to see Parris thank them on her Instagram. They are just as integral to a production as writers and directors in bringing together the bigger picture, but they also can be forgotten in favor of praising other aspects of the production. WandaVision is different, though. Not only did the character’s style change in pretty much each episode, but so did Westview itself, from the houses to the cars on the street and the interior sets. The stylists, set designers, and production designers pulled off something amazing with Marvel’s first original series, and they deserve as much praise as everyone else involved.
