Costume designer Jenny Eagan also discusses Dakota Jackson's vintage tees and Diplo's open cardigan, worn with no shirt.

In "The High Note," entertainment royalty and fashion icon Tracee Ellis Ross makes her bombshell on-screen singing debut as Grace Davis, legendary music star and multi-Grammy winner — 11 times, to be exact, as her faithful assistant Maggie has burned in her memory.

To create Grace's "timeless" signature silhouette of sharp shoulders and dramatic puff-sleeves, Eagan looked to a range of "powerful women," spanning eras and categories, be it music or politics. Over a long dinner, Ellis Ross, director Nisha Ganatra , writer Flora Greeson and Eagan assessed and rounded out the character's persona, on- and off-stage.

Eagan also incorporated '40s Hollywood glamour through Grace's showstopper hats by Lady Gaga's milliner of choice, Gladys Tamez. In an opening scene, as Grace begins her descent down the stairway of her private jet — power-move — she stuns in a cream Victoria Beckham dress with a keyhole-neckline and velvety wide-brim Western topper .

"The fringed jacket takes you back to Joni Mitchell," says Eagan, about Maggie's oft-repeated brown suede Nili Lotan . But Maggie can't really help it. Case in point: For a thwarted evening off, she steps it up to meet David , an up-and-coming singer who scrappily performs in grocery store parking lots — but apparently enjoys a healthy independent income of his own. Her best friend and roommate Katie usually helps herself to Grace's high-end designer discards that Maggie is supposed to drop off at Goodwill.
