Hulu is sharing an early peek of actor Amanda Seyfried as Elizabeth Holmes in its upcoming limited series "The Dropout."

The streaming service unveiled photos of Seyfried in character on Wednesday. They show the "Mean Girls" star attired in the signature look worn by the disgraced Silicon Valley entrepreneur: black turtleneck and slacks, a blond updo and heavy eyeliner. She reportedly was inspired to adopt the look after noting that her hero, Apple founder Steve Jobs, opted for all-black clothes.

Holmes, 37, became the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire as the CEO of the health technology company Theranos, which claimed to have developed a revolutionary technology to perform rapid blood tests using microscopic blood samples.

Holmes has been in court for three months fighting 11 charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Prosecutors allege that Holmes engaged in a multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud investors and patients. She has pleaded not guilty.
