Chilina Kennedy Takes Us Through Her Fashion Evolution as...

Chilina Kennedy has wowed Broadway audiences starring as Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar and Carole King in Beautiful, and her performance as Binky (the fame-hungry publicist and Studio 54 mainstay determined to survive) in the Atlantic Theater Company's premiere of This Ain't No Disco is absolutely next level. The vocals, the character arc, and the Sarah Laux lewks make an unforgettable impression—can we discuss her delivery of “oh look, a clarinet” during her big number “I’m Not Done Yet”?!. Don't miss your chance to see her Binky live through August 12.

I feel like a bit of a ‘70s rockstar in this. It’s a really fun look, and not at all what I would ever wear. I love animals so I wouldn’t be seen in a fur coat but it works so well for Binky and that time period.

This one is fun and sexy. The silver and gold shoes with the black hose is very ‘70s. Yet it still has a rock ‘n roll feel.

This feels funny and perfect for the scene. We are all wearing amazing and humorous headwear/costumes. And I am playing that scene quite seriously, which makes it even funnier.

I love this Diane von Furstenberg dress. It’s classic and flattering. This is Binky at her finest, working her PR magic. I also love the period lingerie underneath. It makes the whole look.

Disco wedding is all I’ll say. It’s extra in the best way.

I feel so sexy in this outfit. The blouse and skirt are so flattering and feminine. I feel like I could tackle anything.

I also feel sexy and powerful in this. Feminine. The shoes are AMAZING.

Then we have the red wig outfits. They feel very 1980s. Corporate. Sarah did a great job with this. She really nailed the time period.

This is so fun and sexy. It also feels professional. I would wear this is real life. Hands down. These costumes are some of my favorites. Ever.
