There have been a bunch of rumblings about Nicole and Keith for months now, in gossipy sources both semi-reliable (various Blind Item sites that have a decent track record) and questionable (like Star and the DMIK), all of which imply that once her awards run is done so will they be. I hope that’s not true — unless they hate each other, in which case I guess I hope it is true because that’s no way for anyone to live — but I will say that all of it informed my reaction to this dress. Which is, namely: Did she pick something so hideous to make sure people had something else about which to whisper? I don’t know if it worked, but she at least stuck the landing on the “yikes” part. I know that may not go over well with the people who love the artsier McQueens, like Margot Robbie in the unicorn, but… at least that one looked finished.
