What can we expect from your character this season?
Katrina is a very strong woman. She’s not afraid to make enemies and butts heads with Mike (Ross, fellow associate) in particular. She’s very determined to make a name and place for herself at the firm. Unfortunately, some people don’t appreciate her place as much she does!
Everyone is always so impeccably dressed! What labels do you wear on the show?
The women who do the wardrobe (for Suits) are the best I’ve ever worked with. They know what looks right on which bodies and have all my outfit choices hanging on a rack when I walk into the room. One of the designers they like for my character is Burberry, and the look is always very form-fitting. One dress I wore was like a second skin – I could barely pull it off my body! I also wear a lot of Gucci and my shoes are from Alice and Olivia.
Did you pick up any style tips?
A designer label really makes a difference – the tailoring and quality is amazing compared to knock-offs and bargains. Everything is so sleek. But the ultimate tip I use into my own life is that tailoring a piece can turn a decent outfit into an extraordinary one. On Suits, they tailor every single piece impeccably. If you spend a little bit of money to make that pencil skirt just a little more snug and a little bit higher, it will elongate your body and make a world of difference.
Young, ace assistant DA, Shelby Cook, works with driven cop, Mike Holland, to catch Daedalus, a serial killer infamous for luring his victims to their deaths through labyrinth traps. Three innocent men have already taken the fall for Daedalus and when Daedalus strikes again, Shelby finds herself defending the latest man accused, a retired and respected judge–who also happens to be her own father.
Awesome news – Amanda is back July 30th to Suits, and I’ve added one still to the gallery from that episode.
