Loathsome characters, graphic depictions of sex and violence and…unfavourable receptions. Clearly HBO's new series The Idol, isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but one area that has not polarised audiences is Jocelyn's ultra-covetable 'fits. 

Lily-Rose Depp's depiction of the troubled pop star certainly has made an impact, as have Jocelyn's see-through slips, no-nonsense shades and minimalist micro separates.

How we chose the pieces:

We combed through the TV show's stills and honed in on some of Jocelyn's most killer looks. After scouring the internet's top fashion sites, we then selected the picks you need, considering style, price point and quality, to recreate the fictional pop star's most glamorous looks. 

Hello! Fashion shares how to recreate Jocelyn's best outfits from The Idol: 

1. Poolside glam

If Jocelyn's saffron velvet Saint Laurent bandeau and high-waisted jersey shorts are beyond the realms of your price range, Finesse has come through with an affordable alternative with super similar plunge detailing. Follow Jocelyn's lead and team it with black high-waisted micro shorts or Toast's chic recycled polyamide bikini bottoms – even more appropriate for the poolside. Top things off with Aspinal's London sunglasses for a hint of feline glam.

2. Semi-sheer sultry

Sadly, Jocelyn's merino knit dress by Los Angeles-based label Aya Muse is currently sold out, but Monki's dusty blue stretchy halter version would make for an excellent alternative. Finish your look with a dash of silver in the form of Jimmy Choo's Bon Bon bag. Sweet, saccharine and super sparkly – Jocelyn would no doubt very much approve.

Some of Jocelyn's looks are high impact, and yet super minimalist

 It's giving sports chic meets micro separates, and we're into it. Worn for a backyard dance rehearsal, Didu's mesh bra and Guizio's black skirt look minimalist and cool on Jocelyn, especially when styled alongside Diesel's super alternative S-Prototype Low W sneakers. The pop star adores gentle oval shades, and Chanel's version would make for a perfect summer investment.

 4. Gothic lace

 Jocelyn's high-necked Maison Margiela gown is indisputably sexy with its semi-sheer lacework, but we can't get enough of this piece by De La Vali which champions elegant texture. Add a bit of interest to your glossy blow dry by allowing Missoma's bobble detail gold hoops to peek through.

5. Pearlcore perfection

 For her Vanity Fair interview, Jocelyn donned Nana Jacqueline's Eliza dress crafted from a lustrous pink silk/satin blend. Featuring pearl halter detailing, the piece embraces overt femininity, and yet when styled with super dark shades, has a certain superstar appeal.
