Is anyone really surprised that Shonda Rhimes, prolific creator of highly (and toxically) addicting shows and highest paid showrunner in Hollywood, has created what is now the most watched Netflix series ever? Nope. Seeing that the Regency train is as unyielding as Shondaland’s hypnotizing output—season 2 was announced just earlier this month—we found it more than fitting to include Bridgerton, whose costume department produced a whopping 7500 individual pieces in just 5 months, in our exploration of Regency-core motifs.
This is part of a series dissecting 4 shows that have been defining the recent interest in “Regency-core”, this particular article will focus on stylistic motifs and concepts found within Netflix’s Bridgerton. (We’ll try to keep the spoilers to a minimum.)
