Fug File: Accessories to the Crime
Let’s get one thing straight: this is UTTER LUNACY. It is HIDEOUS. And yet, bizarrely, I might secretly love it:
She looks like a complete crackpot, but a FUN one and a crackpot with whom I want to go have a champagne cocktail, IMMEDIATELY. She looks like that wacky girl you know, whom you’d NEVER EVER go on vacation with, but who is a delight for ninety minutes while she tells you about the seven dudes she’s seeing (two of whom are married, one of whom is an earl), the five watches she’s recently shoplifted, and that one person she kinda accidentally on purpose hit with her car. And then you leave and when you get home, your boyfriend is like, “how was she?” and you’re like, “SO fun. I’m EXHAUSTED.”
Compared to the last time we saw her, this is like….listen, I am pretty sure I heard a whole choir of angels sing as the heavens opened:
I actually think this is SO cute on her. It’s young and fresh and saucy, without being tacky or juvenile or silly. She is one of those girls who looks different in whatever she wears — her face takes makeup well, in a way where it’s kind of transformative on her — and I love that they decided to just have this dress do all the talking for her last night. It speaks well for her.
