Preparing for the premiere of “Tell Me Lies” with Grace Van Patten – WWD
Grace Van Patten is one of Hollywood’s hottest stars, and her latest project is not to be missed. “Tell Me Lies,” available now on Hulu with new episodes weekly, is a steamy drama that follows the relationship between Van Patten’s Lucy and Stephen, played by Jackson White, for eight years. The series premiered last week in Los Angeles, and Van Patten shared a behind-the-scenes look at his night, below.
How did you decide what to wear for the premiere?
“My stylist Ryan Young knows me so well that it’s always hard to choose my favourite. I went for this Prada dress because it looked the most like me and also matched the energy of the show.
How did your look make you feel?
“I felt the most myself and confident and fun wearing it. It was the perfect mix of fun, class, daring and sexy.
What about hair and makeup – which direction did you want to go?
“Nikki DeRoest and Mara Roszak were the geniuses behind the hair and makeup. We wanted this bling-up Prada dress to be timeless while still maintaining its edgy edge, so we went for a kind of Bridget Bardot-inspired look.
Where did you prepare? Who did you prepare with?
“I had my sister in town and my two close friends as well as my manager so it was a party. It’s always nice to be surrounded by friends and family to calm the jitters and the nerves.
What was your favorite part of being Lucy?
“I could go on forever. Lucy’s emotional journey is one of the most complex and relevant stories. I think everyone will find a part of themselves.
