‘Bridgerton’ Costume Designer Says Penelope’s Season 2 Green Dress Is A Subtle Nod To Her Romance With Colin

  • A “Bridgertoncostume designer says Penelope’s green dress in Season 2 has a hidden meaning.
  • Sofia Canale told People that the outfit mixes the colors of the Featherington and Bridgerton families.

Fans who suspected a hidden meaning behind Penelope Featherington’s unusually green dress in season two of “Bridgerton” were onto something, according to one of the show’s costume designers.

In an interview with People’s Kelsie Gibson, costume designer Sofia Canale said that Penelope specifically wore a light green dress to symbolize the Featherington and Bridgerton families’ blending of colors. In turn, he gives a subtle nod to the highly anticipated romance between her and Colin Bridgerton.

Insider’s Claudia Willen previously reported that each “Bridgerton” family has their own unique color palette.

Bridgertons are often seen in shades of blue and pink. Meanwhile, Featheringtons almost always come in brighter, extravagant colors like canary yellow. In episode four of the second season, when Penelope arrives at Aubrey Hall for a Bridgerton family social event, she ditched yellow in favor of a green dress.

Canale also said that Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor, was a prequel because her own color scheme evolved throughout the first season.

Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, played by Regé-Jean Page, was the central romantic storyline of the first season. At first, she is seen wearing understated blue-colored dresses that change subtly as the season progresses.

“When you see Daphne, we pushed her into the lilacs in Season 1 because of the families marriage,” Canale told People. “I think it’s pretty important to be seen.”

Fans will likely have to wait for the season three premiere to see if the younger Featherington’s changing color palette becomes more apparent.

But one thing is for sure – the romance between Penelope and Colin should be the focus of the upcoming season.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope in the TV series, confirmed the news at Netflix’s FYSEE expo in Hollywood on Sunday, Insider previously reported.

“Like Lady Whistledown, I’ve been keeping a secret for some time and can confirm to you that season three is Colin and Penelope’s love story,” Coughlan said. “I kept this secret for two weeks in season two. This is the first time I’ve said it here.”

Canale did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
