Sky's hit original series Riviera is back for a second season on Sky Atlantic, and between the glamour, stunning backdrops and street style icon Poppy Delevigne as the new star, we will be glued to our screens for style inspiration. Julia Stiles returns as Georgina Clios – the smart and tenacious art curators whose life was thrown into turmoil after the mysterious death of her millionaire husband. Picking up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive conclusion to series one, a member of the Clios family has gone missing, and the blood is on Georgina's hands. Doing all she can to conceal the murder from her extended family, Georgina makes a turbulent return to the Riviera – only to find a sinister message waiting for her. Georgina's attempts to find the identity of her accuser entangle her with the Eltham family – an English dynasty with secrets of their own.
The Elthams feature a family of new cast members, including Juliet Stevenson as Lady Cassandra Eltham, Poppy Delevigne as her daughter Daphne, and Alex Lanipekun as Daphne's partner Raafi Al-Qaadi. The second series, with all episodes released on May 23, promises to be full of just as much glamour, intrigue and fabulous outfits as Season One. Sharing her inspiration behind the show's stunning outfits, Riviera's Costume Designer Emma Fryer said that she went shopping in central London with Delevigne to find the essence of her character, Daphne Eltham, through her clothing. Using designers like Emilia Wickstead, Alice Temperley and Zimmerman, Fryer described used "floatier, softer" materials to reflect Delevigne's character.

All episodes available from 23 May. Season one available on demand now. Two years on from becoming Sky Atlantic's most-watched original series, Riviera is one day away from coming back for a second season. To get you all excited, the broadcaster has released a clip of the first episode of season 2, and Julia Stiles' Georgina is in trouble... Of course, she's trying to get away with the murder of Iwan Rheon's character Adam Clios in season 1, so you can't expect things to be all sugar and rainbows for her. That's not the only problem facing our problematic heroine this season. The Elthams, an aristocratic English family with secrets of their own, are going to come onto the scene and cause all sorts of mischief. Arrested Development legend Will Arnett is also making his debut as Georgina's charismatic uncle Jeff, which is excellent news. Stiles has described Arnett's character as "someone who sees through her armour. Will is perfectly cast as her mysterious and yet charming Uncle and I am excited to explore how far Georgina will go to protect her new life".
