The ladies of Highway 65 hit the stage on this week’s episode of Nashville, and costume designer Susie DeSanto kept them in coordinating hues to highlight their bond. “In this episode Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) and Rayna (Connie Britton) are solidly in business together, ” says DeSanto. “Rayna is now her boss as well as Scarlett’s (Clare Bowen) boss, so I definitely felt like there was a connection between the three ladies.” With that in mind she chose to dress them all in the same color palette. “Everyone was in blacks and silvers with a bit of rhinestone, but they definitely stayed true to their own distinct looks.”

One of our favorites of the episode was Juliette’s sexy black dress by Mandalay. “It was this black long sleeve beaded illusion dress — they do the beaded dresses really well,” DeSanto says. We agree! To finish off the look, she went with pewter boots by Christian Louboutin. “They have this silver pointy toe — they’re so groovy!”
