Riley Keough pays homage to her favorite Stevie Nicks looks by rocking ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’ costumes

The first three episodes of the highly anticipated Prime Video series, “Daisy Jones & the Six,” have finally premiered, and viewers are applauding the glamorous stage looks on social media. Starring Riley Keough as Daisy Jones, the show is an adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s hit book.
Denise Wingate, the costume designer behind the series’ Fleetwood Mac-inspired fashions, spoke with Page Six Style about paying homage to one of her favorite Stevie Nicks looks for the “Aurora” album cover and how she wound up collaborating with a designer who once dressed Keough’s grandfather, Elvis Presley.

Reid has said that the romantic tension between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham helped her write “Daisy Jones,” so it’s no surprise the ’70s rockers were all over Wingate’s mood boards. Although Wingate wanted Keough’s Daisy to be her own person rather than a Nicks clone, a certain look of the “Landslide” singer’s did make its way into the show. Wingate describes a “white sheer chiffon” dress that was “just so beautiful and ethereal.” She wound up making a version of the frock for the fictional band’s “Aurora” album cover.

Unfortunately, viewers don’t get to see it in all its glory since they shot the scene in a freezing storm, and Wingate ended up putting a coat on Keough to keep her warm.

Wingate discovered a gold lamé Halston caftan that she cut down the middle to make into a cape and layered on top of a vintage metallic crochet dress for Keough’s final performance look. Wingate calls it “a magical outfit” and “the perfect way to end the show.” When Wingate reached out to Levi’s to look for vintage pieces from the archives to use onscreen, the brand connected her with Melody Sabatasso, a designer who just so happened to craft jumpsuits for Presley back in the day.

She made a lot of patchwork leather and denim pieces back in the ’70s, and Wingate loved her designs.

The show’s characters appear 20 years older for certain sequences and reflect on the band’s golden era. Wingate says she tried to make Daisy “a little more of a blank canvas” for these scenes, while keyboardist Karen (Suki Waterhouse) channels “an older Chrissie Hynde or Patti Smith.”

Eddie (Josh Whitehouse) would have been performing solo like Lindsey Buckingham or Richard Marx, and it shows in his clothes. Wingate predicts the show’s fabulous coats, crochet halter tops, and high-waisted flares will make a strong showing at outdoor concerts this year, along with short shorts with knee-high boots.

Among male concert-goers, she predicts “vintage leather jackets, tight T-shirts, and vintage boots” will be ubiquitous. However, perhaps not the bolder bare-chested looks seen on Sebastian Chacon’s drummer character. “I’m not sure an average guy will be able to rock a fur vest like Warren,” Wingate quips.
