Elisha Cuthbert's 'Happy Endings' Designer Dishes on Set Style

04/13/2011 at 03:00 PM ET

Six adult friends dealing with love and relationships while navigating their own professional and personal lives. It might sound a lot like Friends, but it’s actually ABC’s new series, Happy Endings, which examines what happens to friendships when a couple splits. Though the subject matter can be touchy, the fashion looks totally fun! In this behind-the-scenes video, the show’s costume designer, Keri Smith, talks about dressing the female stars for their roles in looks inspired by Banana Republic. “It’s always exciting to get the script,” she says. “I love reading it and seeing what the kids are up to.” Those ‘kids’ include 24‘s Elisha Cuthbert, who plays free-spirit Alex. “I love Alex’s character, and I love dressing Alex,” shares Smith, who says the look she created for the role is a mix of urban and bohemian. “[She] loves to wear a lot of ruffly florals and organic jewelry. She’s a little less blingy.” Jane, played by Eliza Coupe, is “more professional,” Smith says, and dresses in a sophisticated style. Then there’s Penny, SNL‘s Casey Wilson, who’s “more the casual weekend gal,” Smith says. “Penny’s great because I think everybody relates to Penny.” We’ll find out! Happy Endings premieres tonight on ABC.

Does anyone know where to get the green stone necklace Jane wore in episode 10 “Bo Fight”?

I read on a blog that the orange flat stone necklace is the perfect skipper necklace from Anthroplogie. I don’t know if it’s true but it may be worth a try.

I wanted to know where Penny’s open heart on a chain necklace is from. She wore in the the season finally. I also saw this same necklace on Sabrina from ‘Raising Hope’. The heart is on the chain sideways and is part of the chain.

I would LOVE to know where the outfit Alex wore to Penny’s birthday is from. Thanks :)

I’d love to know where to get Alex’s necklace from episode 2. It’s the one that look like tiered scales or scallops. She wears it with a purple tank top and green jacket.

I would LOVE to know who the designer was of Alex’s wedding dress.

I would love to know the designer of Penny’s gray purse. She used it when she and brad went to talk to the waiter brad got fired and found him living in his car.

I’d like to know which sunglasses is Jane wearing in the car (when she is stalking “her” child) in season 2, episode 2 ??? :)) they are fabulous!

And where the white sweater Elisha was wearing in the Jane Egg Baby episode! It was perfect.

Hi, I have been searching everywhere for the open heart necklace that Penny was wearing in a couple of episodes. It is the same one as Beth mentioned in her comment. The open faced heart that is sideways on a chain.
