Wow what an explosive episode of Skins it was last night! It was one of the most intense of the series and had a very dramatic ending. It was all about Effy, played by Kaya Scodelario, and her inner battles so her wardrobe was definitely used to reflect that. When I interviewed Edward Gibbon, the stylist from the show, he told me that the clothing is often reflecting their feelings at the time. This week Effy's grungey look was a reflection of the brainwashing by Dr Foster which encouraged her to reject "her old wardrobe and create a new one in the hope that (for once) she can fade into the background." See below to copy her dressed down look!
