Nucky Thompson and Margaret Thompson
TV Series: Boardwalk Empire
Actors: Steve Buscemi and Kelly MacDonald
Costume Designer: John Dunn
Flapper style dresses and pin-striped suits wouldn't cut it today, but the costumes in HBO's Boardwalk Empire still encapsulate the 1920s to a T. Nucky and Margaret's clothing are accurate and specific to the period without being boring. Nucky is usually dressed in three-piece suits, a white detachable stiff collar, a Homburg or Derby hat, and always has a red carnation boutonniere pinned to his left lapel. Margaret's look is best described by one word: opulent.
