Viewers of the series immediately gravitated to the character, played by Kathrine Narducci. Clips of Fezco’s grandmother went viral on TikTok, scored by songs like “These Boots Were Made for Walking.” Narducci understands her character’s potency. “It is a young audience,” she says about how her character resonates with younger viewers. “I think it is because it is such an empowered woman who is doing shit her own way and doesn’t give a shit. That suit is a power suit and that suit made me feel so powerful.”
The suits were designed specifically for Narducci’s character by the show’s costume designer Heidi Bivens who tapped a longtime tailor to the stars, Amber Doyle, to create it. “They didn’t just get things from the rack!” says Narducci. The suits set the tone for that raging Meemaw fatale energy, which continues throughout, along with a studded cowboy shirt and black flares with a thick metal belt cinched so tight you would think she will burst out of it, a sleeveless halter that shows off her tattoos, and a floral print top buttoned to put her whole chest on display. Her wrist flexes a Rolex watch and her hands are laden with metal rings: a babe version of brass knuckles.
At first glance, Fezco’s grandma’s look is reminiscent of something Dolly Parton would wear if she was more familiar with a tire iron than a guitar. Everything is tight and unforgiving, meticulously tailored, and manicured with flash. Aside from Dolly, we’ve seen other women dress this way before in similar roles. On Instagram, director Joshua Michael Paulin pointed out on Instagram that the plot of Fezco and his protective, violent grandmother was similar to the 1980 film Gloria, which stars Gena Rowlands as a vengeful granny. Gloria also has bodacious style, wearing fuchsia print shirts, metallic skirt suits, and necklaces dangling on her cleavage.
