And then, of course, there’s the fashion of the ’90s. We are now seeing a resurgence of the 90s and early fashion. Do you have any favorite trends / looks from that period? Do you still wear it today?
Well tie-dye. I like tie-dye. Overall. Love overalls. Save for overlays. Overalls are always going to be cute. I don’t care and I like big sized things. I am a girl that likes oversized clothes, and 90s very large size fashion. I like a cute pleated skirt, like plaid Ignorance Vibration
Let’s talk about Joel’s style. What were the initial conversations for her appearance and how did her style develop over the four seasons?
I think her style is really nice. She is really bold in her fashion choices. Even outside of the nineties staff, in four asons, he wore really big things, big jackets and coats and sweaters. She always wears a lot of jewelry, which I think… my godmother always wears a lot of jewelry. Rings and bracelets on each of his fingers that goes [up the arm], And I think it’s very regal. It reminds me of African queens. So I would say Joel wears lots of jewelry, which I think is amazing. She likes to do a lot with her hair, so she wears hair wrappers and things like that. This final season, she didn’t wear braids, which I’m sure people are going to be like “Hu”. Joel picked it up very quickly. He likes a good logo and will definitely do a good logo. She is expressive in her attire. Her attire always seems intentional. She wakes up with the intention of dressing up and cooling down.
Do you like to be involved with its clothing?
Oh my God, our costume designer, CC and Michelle, they are amazing. They are much better. I love them so much. To be completely honest, I am very confident on the process. So we do things and accessories like that, but I don’t think I’ve ever been like, “Nah, I don’t want to wear it.” They are so good and unique. We all dress very differently. Whatever Sam wears, Joel never wears. Whatever Joel wears, Sam never wears. Whatever Coco wears, Joel never wears and vice versa. And I think it’s very cool. They ask me, but I’m always just like, “I like it. Let’s do it.” As long as it fits, I’m like “Great”.
One of my favorite parts of the show was always the friendship between Joel and Sam. What do you like about working with Logan Browning and does that friendship carry IRL?
Honestly, it’s pretty ridiculous. What happened to Logan and I is rare. And the truth is that this is the complete opposite of my relationship with Logan. Logan has become one of my closest and dearest friends. She was with me at my bachelor’s. We have really translated our life friendship into real life. He is a lifelong friend and one of the parts of the show that I will miss the most. Now, I’m getting emotional. Playing the role of his best friend Dear white people Done … I don’t know what the journey is and where I’ll land next time, and pray, I’ll have a very long career, but playing the role of his best friend was, of course, my favorite role to date. It’s one of my favorite experiences so far, and I know it will be in my lifetime. He’s so generous, so talented, so funny, and the truth is Logan is just a good friend. He is a good man. It’s very funny. Sam is so flawed in friendship, and Logan is not. Logan is really playing a character, right? I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about Logan, and I’m just so grateful that she’s become a lifelong sister and friend.
