Kristen Wiig wears long blond pigtails and retro visor on set of period miniseries Mrs. American Pie

Kristen Wiig is a blast from the past in long blond pigtails and a retro visor from the set of her period miniseries Mrs. American Pie

Kristen Wiig proved she was the perfect fit for her 1970s-set Apple TV+ series Mrs. American Pie when she was spotted on the show’s set on Friday.

The 48-year-old former Saturday Night Live star was seen in a retro ensemble while filming a scene.

She plays the miniseries’ lead, Maxine Simmons, a woman who tries to rise to the top tier of Palm Beach society in the early ’70s, even as trouble within her marriage and disdainful socialites threaten to block her ascent.

Kristen looked as if she had just come from a tennis match with her sleeveless white figure-hugging dress, which she wore with fuzzy armbands.

The look featured orange-and-red stitching below the color, which complemented her ’70s-appropriate yellow-and-orange floral-print visor. 

It covered the Bridesmaids star’s long blond tress, which were tied into two pig tails that rested across her chest and revealed her modest gold ring earrings.

Missing from the photos was her costar Leslie Bibb, who joined her in the scene.

Kristen is joined on Mrs. American Pie by Laura Dern, who also executive produces, as well as Allison Janney.

The singer Ricky Martin, Josh Lucas and Carol Burnett round out the main cast, while actress-turned-model Kaia Gerber is featured in a recurring role.

Mrs. American Pie is based on the novel Mr. & Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel. The series was announced back in February, and filming commenced starting in May.

Kristen turned to the more-recent past last year when she reprised her role as the title character’s side kick in Will Forte’s hilarious MacGruber series, which aired on Peacock.

The show, which also features Ryan Phillippe, was a follow-up to their 2010 film MacGruber and the recurring SNL sketch starring Forte and Wiig.

She has also been announced as one of the voice stars of the upcoming animated film Despicable Me 4, after appearing in the third film in the series.
