If by now you haven’t binged the whole of Netflix’s new show Bridgerton then what have you been doing with your time?

Combining the scandalous attitude of Gossip Girl with the romanticism of Downton Abbey, this is one show that should be on your watch list.

As much as we love the dramatic plot and colourful sets, we can’t get enough of the elegant Regency costumes too.

One character that has got the viewers attention is none other than Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan’s character Penelope Featherington.

From her sassy attitude to her delightful dresses, fans can’t get enough.

One fan commented on an Instagram photo of Nicola saying: “We couldn't ask for a better Penelope Nicola you're PERFECT” and well we couldn’t agree more.

Nicola made her U.S. debut as she played Claire Devlin in Derry Girls, which saw her become a favourite of many.

The beautiful blonde is no stranger to fabulous fashion as in her personal life, Nicola loves to push the boundaries and isn’t scared to take a few risks with her fashion choices

We’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane and show you just how Nicola embraces some drama in her own personal looks.

We had to start off with this beyond stunning shirt dress by designer Simone Rocha.

Not only does it has some amazing vintage embroidery details but the embellishments help to add some drama to the overall look.

Complimenting the red embroidery in the dress, Nicola chose to accessorise with matching accessories and bold eye makeup – simply stunning.

The next favourite was this shiny pink dress which the actress wore to the premier of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

Fully accepting the flamboyance of the show, Nicole made sure to channel this in her outfit.

Combining puff sleeves with the metallic fabric this definitely packs a punch just like her on-screen costumes.

Another pink favourite of ours is this Barbie inspired ensemble which Nicola wore to the 2020 BAFTA awards.

Keeping it cool and collected for the red carpet in an Alex Perry dress, the blonde beauty oozed all the confidence.

At the time a critic claimed the dress was "unflattering", but how wrong they were. We love this look.

Only Nicola could pull off a dramatic upgrade to a classic Little Black Dress.

When appearing on BBC’s The Graham Norton show, she wore this flawless gown by JW Anderson.

Combining a puff skirt with the glitz of the gold fringe sleeves, this is one we could definitely see her character Penelope wearing

  • Bridgerton fans stunned to realise Madame Delacroix character was in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and Benidorm

As much as we love her fabulous daring looks, she also gives great lessons in how a voluminous silhouette needs little else to make a statement.

This &Other Stories dress is a classic summer dress but the oversized puff sleeves still gives the outfit all the drama that it needs.

Just like her character of the show, this is one woman who loves to play with fashion and we simply love her for it.
