Over winter break, bedridden with the flu, I mainlined Brit Marling's eight-part Netflix series in two days. While the narrative leaves much unresolved by the final episode, it's also fittingly ambiguous; the first season alone is captivating and really, really weird, and I anticipated it would be a standalone event. Still, it doesn't demand, but it does ask for, a second season. Actress and creator Marling, who conceived, wrote, produced, and starred in the series as Prairie Johnson, a blind woman who escapes captivity from a deranged scientist experimenting with near-death experiences, and her writing partner, the director Zal Batmanglij, devised an enthralling, at times obscure fable that poses as many questions as it answers. It's the kind of story she's gravitated towards throughout her career, from in two days.

It's the kind of story she's gravitated towards throughout her career, from Another Earth to I Origins to The East, and it's almost all hers. (The series also features singer Sharon Van Etten, actor Riz Ahmed, and Paz Vega.)

A month later, in February, The OA was renewed for a second season, though its air date is still unannounced. In the meantime, with the Emmys approaching, Marling appeared at a Netflix event supporting her show, wrapped in a sporty Louis Vuitton design that's a far cry from Prairie Johnson's eclectic athleisure-inspired looks.

Who: Brit Marling.

When: Sunday, May 7.

Where: The Netflix FYSee Emmys consideration kickoff event in Beverly Hills, California.

What: A red long-sleeved dress by Louis Vuitton with black boots, also by Vuitton, both from the Spring 2017 collection.

Why: Red is Brit Marling's color. Her red carpet choices frequently tend towards spare and minimal, so as far as fashion's most venerated houses go, sporty Louis Vuitton makes a fitting choice. Though the silhouette has appeared on everyone from Michelle Williams to Jennifer Connelly lately, Marling's choice of red makes it stand out from the rest—and, appropriately, coordinates with that instantly recognizable red Netflix logo.
