My favorite scene from the whole movie. It’s a truly terrifying situation to go through yet this girl tramples it and becomes a total badass. If I ever decide to procreate, my daughter will be named Shoshanna.. And everyday I will say, “Au revoir Shoshanna!” She will be strong.
“It’s so perfect for the world we’ve set up for Shoshanna, and it also feels like a perfect tribute to [David Bowie] to show the way his songs can transcend gender, time, place and be emotionally resonant when sung by a teenage girl about the experience of a twenty-something girl.”
Shoshanna’s homecoming look is a custom job, so if you had your eye on that “Je Ne Sais Blah” top, sorry! It’s one of a kind. Girls Costume designer Jenn Rogien and her team created the custom graphic and had it embroidered just for Zosia.
As for Shosh’s glorious trinket-filled platforms, Rogien and her team embarked on a New York City-wide scavenger hunt to fill them. “We used a combination of sequins and fruit and dessert erasers,” Rogien reveals. “It was really fun!”
While cheery on the surface, the look has a dark side. “As saccharine and poppy as it is, this outfit’s a bit of a bummer,” Rogien says of the look’s wild contrast with JFK airport. “It offers a nice visual reflection on where Shoshanna is emotionally.” —Diana Band
