The eagerly awaited five-part series Halston is now streaming on Netflix. The glitzy Ryan Murphy production stars Ewan McGregor as the titular American fashion designer who defined the disco era with his flowing caftans and shimmering, glittering gowns—and follows the rise and fall of his iconic empire.
Born Roy Halston Frowick, Halston began his career as a milliner and is widely remembered as the creator of Jackie Kennedy’s pillbox hat. As he moved onto designing the swirling caftans and glittering gowns of the Manhattan fashion set, he began to cater to and cloth celebrities and models like Liza Minnelli, Bianca Jagger, Anjelica Huston. He also became a celebrated part of Studio 54 and all its excesses.
McGregor embodies Halston in all his sophisticated glory, and according to Page Six, costume designer Jeriana San Juan tracked down the designer’s personal tailer to get his look onscreen. In addition to the custom seamless pants, black turtlenecks and the Ultrasuede safari jacket he wore in his studio, McGregor also dons the oversized sunglasses which became part of Halston’s well-known uniform.
The glasses McGregor wears are from designer Tom Ford and if you want to celebrate Halston and look just as fabulous, you can grab these black Cybil sunglasses for 65% off right now–just $160. Crafted from acetate, these rounded aviators have floating lenses and a small “t” logo on the temple. And did we mention they’re massively on sale?
