might as well come dressed as another, eh?
Let’s award points for the color.
I am then going to retract said points for the torso triangle, the bandaged effect around it, and all the little fangs hanging off her waistband — perhaps they are icicles, in an ode to the polar vortex — as well as for the fact that she looks like she’s trying to re-conceptualize the hula. Don’t take the grass skirts and coconut bras away from young ladies who need Halloween costumes. It’s unkind.
This one is from the Chanel show that Karl Lagerfeld did in Dallas, and I’ve decided he’s punking us with it.
It feels more like a vaguely Southwestern screen-saver that someone put out in 1999, to try and combat the appealing hilarity of Flying Toasters. Or a Tex-Mex ballet — Swan Lake Travis, say, or Cinderalamo. Pick your poison. Just don’t actually consume it, like she did.
Before you ask, it does not appear that Idris Elba was at this event, which is obviously a brutal tragedy for anyone with eyes. However, Naomie Harris’s dress was pretty easy on them:
The color story here — wow, can you tell we were just at Fashion Week? I just used the phrase “color story.” Don’t worry, I’m going to watch some old One Tree Hill on Netflix and eat a metric ton of Chex Mix and I’ll be back to myself in no time at all — is reminiscent of Amy Adams’ dress from the Critic’s Choice Awards, but the simplicity of this Gucci version really suits her. That being said, and as lovely as I think this is, people are slightly phoning this thing in. Maybe if Idris wasn’t going to be there, she just couldn’t be bothered. That’s as good of an excuse as any.
