There were many highly anticipated films coming out in 2022. However, with 2019 knife out still a very underrated film, its sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mysterywas one to watch out for. glass onion focuses on the career and puzzle-solving skills of Detective Benoit Blanc, played by 007 himself, Daniel Craig.

glass onion itself followed a somewhat similar format in terms of exciting plot twists and turns, overly eccentric characters, and a crime thriller at its heart.

This movie managed to take the movie fashion game to a new level and each character had their own unique style to match their unique personality. The setting of a remote island in Greece and beautiful modern grounds make for some stunning outfits. Here’s our ranking of some of Netflix’s best fashion moments glass onion.
8/8 cute and casual
belonging is one thing. The whole vibe surrounding Peg’s wardrobe? A round of applause! Peg, played by Jessica Henwick, is Birdie’s assistant glass onion, and unlike her loud and obnoxious boss, she functions entirely to keep the peace and Birdie’s career intact. So with so much on her plate, over-the-top fashion isn’t really her first priority, and it’s working. Her laid-back wardrobe was a fantastic visual representation of how she differs from the rest of the group of friends, and embodies that easy-going Gen Z style that honestly can never go wrong.
7/8 Do the most and wear the least at the pool
Fashion can be whatever you want it to be. What we define as fashion can change every day. Well, in this case maybe less is more! Dave Bautista plays Duke glass onion, a cocky hunk and men’s rights activist. (Yes, we know.) That massive flaw in his character doesn’t mean his fashion has to be lacking, however. Duke’s most memorable fashion moment is when he wears as little clothing as possible without having to change the rating of this film. At the pool, Duke carries a tiny little Speedo equipped with a strategically placed holster to hold his gun. Pretty incredulous if you ask us, but a memorable moment nonetheless.
6/8 Anti-mask chic?
Birdie, played by Kate Hudson, is one of the “craziest” characters in glass onion. To say she is unmusical is an understatement. From her track record of being impervious to racial slurs to her inability to show empathy for anything other than her career, it’s unsurprising to see Birdie don a glittery nude net mask on her way to the island. At a time of heightened COVID-19 awareness, her mask choice was insensitive and an eyesore. At this point in the film, however, it was definitely a fashion statement.
5/8 rainbow is your color
Another birdie fashion statement had to happen in this film. At dinner at Glass Onion, Birdie shows up in a fabulous rainbow dress. The dress was long, had so much movement and reflected her colors in a spectrum of rainbow tones that you can’t miss as she enters the room. For a figure who always wants to be the center of attention, this dress is the right choice for her.
4/8 A matching set
A stunning vacation in Europe seems like an odd setting for Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc. However, never underestimate a man with a plan. Blanc is taking this vacation by storm and not just with his detective skills. Blanc steps out while everyone is lounging poolside in a blue and white striped ensemble, complete with the cutest little yellow scarf around her neck. Though he maintains his cool, calm, and collected demeanor behind his sunglasses, the pop of color added some much-needed fun and charisma to his character’s overall look.
3/8 Dressed for the occasion
Even in popular media, menswear today is often criticized as monotonous, repetitive and boring. However, we cannot overlook men’s fashion in glass onion. Lionel’s (Leslie Odom Jr.) dinner outfit is definitely a head turner. This whole sequence of events has given us all some pretty standout fashion moments for the entire cast. There was something about that dark green suit, though, and we all had our hats pulled in different directions.
2/8 A revenge dress moment
Fashion was simple for Janelle Monáe’s character glass onion. In almost every scene she was in, she just stole with her outfit. They were the perfect blend of sophisticated, rich and effortless. When she walked into the dock in a stunning dress, the entire cast was stunned and speechless. It’s the perfect revenge dress if you’re making an unexpected entrance at your husband’s party. All eyes were on her, and with good reason.
1/8 The power suit
Making a statement in your fashion is a great way to get your point across. Janelle Monáe as Andi Brand put us in a trance. When she came out in a gorgeous all-white power suit, we knew she meant business. This outfit was perfect for all the chaos that happens during the climax glass onion. Monáe never disappointed when she was on screen. However, this suit has to be what we remember most of her character. Besides, how did it manage to look even better with blood stains?
