My favorite part of this is how it looks as though part of Blake’s skirt is attached to her elbow with fishing wire, so that whenever she moves her arm, the hem of her dress pops up (I think she just swooshed that layer of frock skyward as the shutter snapped). I also enjoy how BORED everyone in the back looks, especially that downtrodden kid in the tie. Don’t worry, Downtrodden Kid. Awards season is almost over. Soon you’ll be back at the pub with the rest of us.
My other favorite part is the color. This blue is splendid on her, and she should wear it always. But I have, as Tim Gunn would say, concerns. (I’m also concerned about how I have no idea when Project Runway comes back and therefore I’m don’t know when Tim and I will be reunited.) Is this, or is this not inching toward Fancy Muumuu Territory (an unsettled land bordering Caftania to the south and BeachCover-upsville toward the west)? I applaud her for wearing something that leaves SOMETHING to the imagination (sort of), but I can’t decide if the whole look really holds together for me.
