Jessica is out today, and I have my 9-year old niece staying with me, so I made her my intern for the day. Intern C is already a better intern than George ever was, because she showed up and stood next to me for about ten minutes. I mean, I don’t ask for a lot, George?
Anyway, Intern C’s task was to help me scrutinize photos from the UK premiere of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Awkwafina has continued her run of cool suits, and I asked Intern C to weigh in on this outfit. Intern C expressed puzzlement about what the gap is above the belt. Intern C makes an excellent point. What IS that gap above the belt? I assume this is two pieces, so I guess it’s a very cropped jacket and we’re seeing a flash of her skin. It also doesn’t look tremendously comfortable? The top has the aura of, “I needed to make a straitjacket and all I had was satin PJs.” There is also an argument to be made that maybe the cummerbund, with the pockets attached, is a late addition — kind of like a tool belt, or a high-fashion double fanny pack. There is much to ponder. Intern C is still frowning at it. Suffice to say she will NOT be trying to duplicate this on her Animal Crossing island.
