Up late: Rachel Brosnahan, 30, showed off her character Midge Maisel’s signature style while filming a nighttime scene for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Saturday in New York City

Rachel showed off her mid-century glamour in a cerulean dress with a flowing skirt that reached down to her knees.

The outfit was belted around her midriff to highlight her hourglass figure, and the top featured buttons and an intriguing triangular cutout above her cleavage with an attached bow tie.

The film and television star had her brunette tresses styled in thick curls, with a veiled magenta pillbox hat on top.

Her costume was rounded out with a burgundy velvet handbag and blue patterned heels. 

More to do: The series, which begins in 1958, had plenty of period cars and actors in period dress, but the scene will need a digital touch-up before it's ready to go on Amazon Prime

Rachel was standing in front of a green screen backdrop, which would allow for a more appropriate cityscape to be placed behind her. 

The actress stars as a Jewish housewife living a fairly comfortable life in Manhattan in the late ’50s, until everything comes crashing down when her husband leaves her for his secretary.

In a drunken fit, Midge goes to the same comedy club where her husband moonlighted to do an impromptu set of her own.

She ends up being bars after flashing her breasts to the audience, but the positive reception leads her to try her hand at stand-up comedy.
