The camera flashes are catching the lining of this dress and making it look, I think, more potentially racy and revealing than it actually is.
Like, there is a LOT I feel like I can see right now, and yet I suspect it’s an illusion? But maybe not? Pity, because the idea is lovely, even if Abbie herself is almost unrecognizable to me with the really bleached, Brigitte Nielsen-colored hair. But I’m not sure I can separate what the dress does when a camera is on it, from what the dress looks like on a hanger or inside the theater. Because the thing is, it was built to be worn, and it was built to be photographed; if it can’t withstand that without making you look like you’re an advertisement for nipples and upper thighs, then maybe it should be demolished.

Remember back in the day when Reese and Ryan broke up and it was (allegedly) because Ryan was canoodling with Abbie Cornish and she went out dressed like a nun most of the time, like she was wearing a sign that said, “I AM SORRY”?
Thank god we’re past that. For a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that it was kind of a ridiculous way for her PR to decide to handle that kerfuffle. And also because she looks pretty great, and people looking great makes all the rest of us feel better. Unless they’re people that we hate, in which case…blinding rage, obviously. I am so gobsmacked to see her looking so va-va-voom that I’m not sure if this is ACTUALLY good or just a welcome change.
ANDREA RISEBOROUGH: I hope people think I’m Mary Louise Parker, and don’t give me a hard time about not hemming my dress.
MADONNA: MOVE AWAY NOTHING TO SEE HERE I AM JUST A SERIOUS DIRECTOR AND I NEVER KISSED JESUS IN A MUSIC VIDEO SO JUST LET’S EVEN PRETEND I’M NOT HERE.
ABBIE CORNISH: Dress, thousands of dollars. Plane ticket to Toronto: $200. Lobster: Market price. Built-in lobster bib attached to my gown: PRICELESS.
