Let me be clear: I really hate this whole thing -- the heavy fabric is awful to me; the cape looks like she parachuted in here and left her deflated vessel on her back -- but I hate it in a way that demands I applaud how funny it is. Her semi-smug expression does seem tinged with knowing amusement, as if she's aware of what she's doing and is pretty sure she's going to get away with it, because she is young and unafraid, and dreams are made and used and wasted, and there is no ransom to be paid. But imagine if she'd pulled this out for one of THOSE telecasts. Oh, the facial expressions. EVERY photo on the red carpet would be bombed by skepticism. There WOULD be ransom to be paid. As it is, I can only dream a dream.
