So, let me give you some insides, what’s the series about… As you probably can guess from the name, it is about an American pop idol (Lilly Rose Depp) and her relationship with a guru and a cult leader Tedros (The Weekend). Jocelyn, played by Depp, is the singer who cancels her tour after a nervous breakdown. A little bit after that she connects with Tedros. Cults, pop idols, complicated relationships… That already sounds like something many would watch, right? But the outfits are what catches my attention at first. Let’s start with the first look! Jocelyn is wearing a sheer baby blue dress with spaghetti straps. I am going to disappoint you a bit, because the same dress made by Aya Muse is already sold out! However, you can find something similar online. Pair it with a black thong, silver mini bag and chunky high heels or boots!

All of Jocelyn (Depp) outfits are trying to represent her life as a pop idol. She was also chosen as the hottest one. That’s why what she is wearing can be seen as very provocative. As we already mentioned, the character had it rough and got a nervous breakdown, which portrays the life of a pop star.
