Ewan McGregor is Halston in First Look at Netflix Series

Netflix has provided Vital Thrills with a first look at Halston, the limited series following the legendary fashion designer, played by Ewan McGregor. The five-episode series will debut on May 14.

The series follows Halston as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970s and ’80s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.
