AceShowbiz - Jenna Ortega has admitted that she channeled the character of Wednesday Addams in more ways than one. In a new interview, the breakout "Wednesday" star confessed that her character affected her personal style during the filming.
"When I was working on Wednesday, I suddenly only ever wore black," the former Disney Channel star explained in an interview with New York Magazine's The Cut. She went on elaborating, "I didn't know why. For some reason, my closet just lost all its color."
Jenna became the latest actress to take on the character created by cartoonist Charles Addams, bringing a whole new side to the death-obsessed little girl previously played by stars like Lisa Loring and Christina Ricci.
While Jenna said that she has played characters whose outfits are not a "good representation" of what she would wear, Wednesday's fashion continues to inspire her as she takes on a role as Adidas' latest ambassador.
"I like the purple pieces," Jenna explained while describing the athletic line's new sportswear drop to the outlet. "Maybe it's because, after Wednesday, I just don't wear a lot of color. Now I feel like I tend to stick to darker and more earthy tones, so I like them because they look really good on everyone but also kind of push me to try something new."
Following the Netflix series' highly successful season 1, Jenna's also been leaning into the character's goth-inspired fashion on the red carpet, including at the 2023 SAG Awards on Sunday, February 26.
When gracing the red carpet, Jenna wore an all-black Versace gown with a sculpted bodice for the event. The high-low hemline was gathered at her waist and cinched with a belt with Versace's signature gold enclosure.
The "Scream VI" actress capped off her look with Tiffany & Co. jewels and black platform heels. She kept her glam light, opting for peachy cheeks, lips and shimmery eyeshadow. She wore her hair down and tousled with her bangs parted down the middle.
