Did Birds of Prey have you salivating over the fashion choices and beauty looks? Us too, which is why we’ve rounded up a list of where you can find all your favorite looks!
There is A LOT to love about Birds of Prey — the female friendships, the phenomenal fight scenes and the absolutely fantabulous fashion and beauty choices.
Gone are the skintight looks and barely there couture of previous superhero installments, replaced instead by wearable, practical outfits that are as fun as they are fashionable.
Birds of Prey costume designer Erin Benach described the aesthetic of the film as asking herself: “In my dreamiest of dreams, what would I want me and a gang of girlfriends to wear to kick butt?”
And reader, she didn’t just rise to that challenge, she kicked that challenge’s ass, giving us many cool and enviable looks, and making even the tamest of dressers among us (i.e., me) want to dress like Harley Quinn.
Now, I’ve never thought of myself as much of a Harley Quinn girl. I admire her boldness and her brashness and her balls-to-the-wall approach to life, but I’ve always considered myself too introverted and awkward to be as brave as she is with her life and fashion choices.
However, just because I’m more of a Huntress than a Harley doesn’t mean I don’t think it’d be fun to be Harley, even if just for a few short hours. And, thanks to some bright lip colors and select wardrobe pieces, I actually got to try that idea on for size.
A few weeks before Birds of Prey was released in theaters, Warner Bros. was nice enough to send me a beauty and fashion box filled with all sorts of Birds of Prey-themed goodies ranging from lipsticks, necklaces and T-shirts.
Which means that for a few hours on some random Tuesday, I got to see what life would be like as Harley Quinn.
And you know what? It was pretty damn fun and a lot more wearable than I thought it’d be. That layered necklace in particular has become a favorite of mine. And lucky for all of us who were enraptured by the fashion in Birds of Prey, there are plenty of stores stocking looks from the film.
So whether you’re in the market for screen-accurate cosplay items or simply want to spice up your wardrobe with Birds of Prey-inspired fashion pieces, we’ve got you covered with a list of all our favorite Birds of Prey pieces.
