Dallas Styles: ‘Endgame’ and ‘Brave New World’

“Dallas” ended its third season with heroes falling and villains rising — and their costumes reflected their changing fortunes. John Ross (Josh Henderson) went rogue when he headed to Mexico to save Ewing Global and his mistress Emma — not necessarily in that order — and so of course he donned his trusty leather jacket, […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Boxed In’

Every outfit on “Dallas” tells a story, and so does every hairstyle. In “Boxed In,” this week’s episode, the characters’ tresses told us a lot about how they were coping with their latest crisis: the kidnapping of Ann and Emma. Consider Judith, whose unkempt mane symbolized her emotional unraveling. Her hair was almost as wild […]

The Ewings took their company public in “Victims of Love,” and with the whole world watching — even Wolf Blitzer was tracking their every move — each member of the family suited up for success. “Dallas’s” ace costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin dressed the Ewings in outfits that fit their characters perfectly: Bobby (Patrick Duffy), the silver-haired […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Hurt’

“Dallas” went back to basics this week, delivering a character-driven episode in the spirit of the original series. Fittingly, the cast spent much of this episode wearing basic black. The episode, “Hurt,” opened with Drew’s funeral, although the action soon shifted to Southfork, where Elena confronted the Ewings about J.R.’s sins against her family and Bobby’s scheme to […]

Do you have a favorite coat in “Dead Reckoning,” this week’s “Dallas” episode? There were plenty to choose from. This segment was filmed in the winter, and the cold weather matches the somber mood perfectly. The atmospherics also allow the cast to bundle up in looks that fit their characters: John Ross (Josh Henderson) sports […]

The Ewings weren’t dressed to the nines in “Denial, Anger, Acceptance,” but that doesn’t mean their clothing should be overlooked. We can learn a lot about the characters, even when they aren’t runway ready. Consider the brown coat Brenda Strong wears when Ann arrives at the hospital and lies to Bobby about her whereabouts earlier […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Where There’s Smoke’

Julie Gonzalo and Emma Bell donned Pamela and Emma’s green corsets again in “Dallas’s” midyear cliffhanger, but this time around, the question isn’t who wore it better — it’s who used the lingerie more effectively? The corsets debuted earlier this season, when Pamela wore the sexy undergarment for John Ross on the night before their wedding. […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Like a Bad Penny’

I knew I’d found my look of the week the moment Pamela turned up in that black-and-white dress in “Like a Bad Penny,” “Dallas’s” latest episode. The dress was a brilliant choice for Julie Gonzalo’s character for many reasons, beginning with its symbolic value: Pamela increasingly reminds fans of her mother-in-law Sue Ellen, who long […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘Like Father, Like Son’

Dallas EP 306

The people who make “Dallas” gave us lots of drama to “fanalyze” in “Like Father, Like Son,” this week’s episode, but don’t overlook all the great looks from superstar costume designer Rachel Sage Kunin. Top honors go to Emma Bell, Jordana Brewster and Julie Gonzalo, who all looked runway ready when Emma, Elena and Pamela […]

TNT’s Dallas Styles: ‘D.T.R.’

The Ewings and the Rylands made one bold fashion statement after another in “D.T.R.,” this week’s “Dallas” episode. Nothing was more striking than the red jacket Linda Gray wore in the scene where Sue Ellen ambushed Governor McConaughey and sprung her trap for him. Red was the ideal color for Sue Ellen’s big power play, […]
