Daisy Jones & The Six's Riley Keough Used Fan Art To Build Daisy's Look

The first three episodes of Amazon Studio's rock & roll drama "Daisy Jones & The Six" are now streaming on the Prime Video platform. And if early reviews ring true, streamers should expect the series to deliver a heaping dose of late-'70s nostalgia dressed up in shiny, classic rock shimmy. You should apparently also expect to see one of the better performances of Riley Keough's already impressive career as the actor is earning raves for her work as the titular diva-to-be.

That's saying a lot for an actor with lauded titles like "Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Lodge," and "Zola" already under her belt. It's saying even more when you consider her character in "Daisy Jones & The Six" already boasts a legion of fans who fell for her in the pages of the series' New York Times Best-selling source material. Given her lineage (Keough is the granddaughter of rock icon Elvis Presley), a rock star turn might seem a little pre-ordained for the rising star. But if you've heard Keough talk about her "Daisy Jones" role, you know she put some serious work into bringing the literary favorite to life on screen. And it turns out the actor turned to Daisy's devoted fanbase for help in crafting the character's glammed-up look for the series. 

Instagram apparently played a big role in helping Keough find her Daisy Jones look

Riley Keough spoke candidly about what it took to bring Daisy Jones to life for the new series during an interview with The Steve Varley Show. And in the course of the conversation, she admitted to being a bit spoiled in terms of written inspiration for the character, saying, "I think it was just a combination of the book and the script. She was very well written, so I had a lot of material to draw from." When it came to the character's look in "Daisy Jones & The Six," however, Keough needed to do considerably more homework. As the actor claims, that involved an online deep-dive into Daisy Jones fan art.

"In terms of, ya know, the way she looks, and her costume and her hair and everything," Keough said, "I actually found a lot of inspiration from fan art on the Internet." The actor goes on to say Instagram proved particularly fruitful in helping her craft Daisy's look, adding, "So when we were talking about what her hair should look like, and if she should have bangs, or what color the hair should be, I looked on Instagram at Daisy Jones fan art."

If you've already tuned in to stream episodes of the series, or even just watched the "Daisy Jones & The Six" trailer, you know that approach paid off in spades for Keough, who nails both Daisy's glammed-up and glammed-down looks with sincere style throughout. And it seems Daisy's fashion-loving fans should be taking a bow along with her.
