Masters of Sex Season 3 Artwork and Previews: “We are the Sexual Revolution”

9 Jun

We have spent a lot of time with Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson on Masters of Sex as they conduct their study, but what happens when their work is released on a wide scale? This is what season 3 will be exploring as the show jumps forward to the mid sixties (season 2 ended in January 1961) including a lot of negative reactions from the general public to their controversial work.

The professional and private relationships are just as complementary and contradictory as they have ever been and the marriage between Libby and Bill still reads as fraught. The idea of their being three in this marriage is heightened in both the poster and preview with Libby going so far as kissing Virginia to see what it is like.

Masters of Sex S3Previous artwork has focused solely on Bill and Virginia so Libby inclusion here is significant and they’ve moved away from the buttoned up look of season 1 and the undressed nature of last year’s shots to this fun game of Twister coupled with a Beatles song that doubles a sex pun. Yes I giggled. The interesting thing about this poster is Libby’s position; as while she is featured she is very much off to the side and wearing neutral tones. The bold pink of the dot matches Bill’s undone bow tie (suggesting he has maybe relaxed a little), Virginia’s lipstick and the stitching on her button holes – those giant buttons are A+ and I hope she wears this dress on the show – which unites these two characters.

The costume design on Masters of Sex provides plenty of discourse here at TV Ate My Wardrobe and I am already clapping my hands with glee at this time jump. This is why I present to you shots of costumes that I cannot wait to see in the context of an episode.

IMG_0806So here for Libby’s cream cable knit and pants look. She’s also perfected the whole quiet seething while smoking thing.

IMG_0807Betty has always been the pattern queen so mid sixties fashion is going to be ideal for her.

IMG_0808I also have strong feelings about this yellow outfit.

Watch the promo and a behind the scenes preview below to get a glimpse of what season 3 has to offer. Oh hey Josh Charles! Or should I call you the Perfume King?

Masters of Sex returns Sunday, July 12.
