Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Kayla in the new Tom and Jerry film, which brings us to the Royal Gate Hotel, where the wedding of the year between Ben (played by Colin Jost) and Preeta (Pallavi Sharda) is about to go down. Kayla finds herself coordinating just about every detail, down to convincing Jerry the mouse to scram ahead of the high status couple’s nuptials. The task involves enlisting Tom for some of the dirty work, but Kayla keeps her professionalism top of mind the whole time, and she always appears sophisticated.
When we first see her outside of the hotel, she’s in a relaxed leather jacket from AllSaints and jeans, but her employee uniform is a perfectly fitted skirt suit that basically fit Moretz like a glove the first time she tried it on, according to costume designer Alison McCosh.
“Chloe has a great sense of style. We were on the same page when it came to building Kayla’s look, so it was fun to create. The actor needs to feel good in the costume, so it is important to listen to their thoughts about the character,” McCosh told POPSUGAR. She went on to explain that her research for the wardrobe involved walking around New York City and checking out the vibe of the hotels alongside director Tim Story.
Ahead, McCosh gives us the full rundown of Kayla’s outfits in the film, and we’ve even shopped out some of the key pieces.
