Jessica was super thrown-off when she saw this photo, because to her, Olivia with the bangs looks VERY Kardashian-adjacent. And while I agree that, as ever, Olivia is finding ways to make herself less immediately recognizable, what gave ME the Jenndashian vibe was the ridiculous “dress.” It is so absurdly short that her fingertips hang below it. They are actually touching skin, and the babydoll cut — flowy, with a high empire waist — is super infantilizing on her. I’m almost surprised she isn’t wearing knee socks and buckle shoes and a bonnet, frankly.
But the main reason I put “dress” in quotes up there because IT’S A BLOUSE. Reem Acra calls it a tunic, and yes, okay, in Greek and Roman times, that can mean a long garment. But this is not the Greco-Roman era, and she is not in uniform. Ergo, we move to the next Webster’s Dictionary definition of tunic: “a hip-length or longer blouse or jacket,” AND THERE YOU HAVE IT, THIS IS A BLOUSE.
