Last Friday, the stars of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt turned out for the Tribeca Film Festival-hosted world premiere of the show’s third season. But before checking out the first two episodes — in which we catch up with Kimmy as she heads off to college and Titus as he enacts Lemonade-style revenge on his boyfriend, Mikey — we caught up with several series stars on the red carpet to talk (what else?) shopping.
Below, find out about the cast’s most recent fashion and beauty purchases — plus, what they think their Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt characters would be buying right now.
Tituss Burgess (Titus Andromedon)
“It was these shoes! They were in the store window, and they just screamed my name. I love them so much, and I never spend this kind of money on myself.
As for Titus, well, he doesn’t buy anything. He just rummages and makes his own clothes! I’m thinking he’d make something sparkly. Maybe some sort of cape situation with a brooch-type accent.”
Carol Kane (Lillian)
“Yesterday, I bought a pair of pants from Comme des Garçons. [Rei Kawakubo] is my favorite — she’s such a genius.
And Lillian, of course, would say that I was completely insane for buying a new pair of pants when I had perfectly good old pants to wear!”
Lauren Adams (Gretchen)
“Oh my god, I have a serious online shopping problem — I’m always adding things to my Amazon cart. The last thing I bought was a Juice Beauty tinted moisturizer. It’s not the Goop one — don’t tell Gwyneth — but I love it. It’s all-natural.
And honestly, the last thing Gretchen purchased was probably the dress she wears in the bunker, sadly. That’s the only thing she owns!”
Sara Chase (Cyndee)
“I bought a discontinued Chanel lipstick off of eBay. The color’s Camélia #10 — I always have my eBay alerts ready to go.
Cyndee would definitely be seeking out some Bonne Bell lip products from the ’90s, the era she missed. That’d probably be the chicest thing she could own. I feel like she’d want the Dr. Pepper-flavored one!”
Sol Miranda (Donna Maria)
“I just got — and really like — this Aveda hair lotion. It’s anti-frizz, and it’s awesome. My hair always gets crazy when it’s humid out, but I’ve been using this to smooth it out and it’s really nice.
I think Donna Maria would have bought some body-shaping jeans — she’s definitely into showing off her curves. Maybe some Spanx, too, just to keep everything in place and looking good!”
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 hits Netflix on May 19th.
