kylie jenner handmaids tale the handmaid's tale

Over the weekend, Kylie Jenner and model Sofia Richie threw a party for friend Anastasia Karanikolaou’s birthday. It was a costume affair themed around Hulu’s dystopian series The Handmaid’s Tale, and, unsurprisingly, given the show and source novel’s nightmarish content, that decision led many to question whether Jenner actually understands what Margaret Atwood’s story is about.

The Handmaid’s Tale, a story of rape and repression in a totalitarian theocracy, isn’t something you’d usually associate with parties and fun, so Jenner and Richie’s theme choice could perhaps generously be labeled “bold.” Not that attendees weren’t committed to recreating the looks seen in the show. Browse videos of the party below, which was complete with Handmaid’s Tale red dresses, “Praise Be Vodka,” and “Under His Eye Tequila.” See behind-the-scenes images and videos from the event below.
