Every week, Pretty Little Liars‘ costume designer, Cameron Dale, will share the story behind the most standout wardrobe moment of the episode — exclusively with Us Weekly. Check back every week for a new installment!
In the February 2 episode, “New Guys, New Lies,” Rosewood’s resident prepster, Spencer (Troian Bellisario), rocked the prefect little black dress, and Cameron Dale gave Us all the details!
“For this scene, Spencer is fielding questions from youth voters for her mother’s campaign, so I needed to find an outfit that was professional, but not too serious,” Dale tells Us. “Spencer knows she has to be relatable to her young voters.”
And she could not have loved her choice more. “I love this Maje dress on Spencer,” Dale, who stepped into her role this season, shares. “Maje is a sweet French label that I shop at Bloomingdale’s.” She teamed the dress with Chloe loafers, which she “bargain-hunted at the outlets — there are some serious designer bargains to be found out there!”
Fear not! Bellisario had some input too. “Troian had requested silver rings for this look, so we also played around with different Pandora rings,” the designer shared. “I love fitting Troian and finding a look we both love because she is so thoughtful about Spencer and her motivations.”
And when she and the ladies need a little boost after a long day on set? Dale has the perfect soundtrack to keep the energy levels high. “I usually play some Regina Spektor or Lana Del Rey,” she revealed. “The PLL girls are such troopers during long fittings; it can be exhausting trying on rack after rack of clothing — no matter how cute!”
