I am just loving this kid, and whoever’s dressing her:
This is 100% appropriate for the occasion and also 100% appropriate for a ninth or tenth grader. It’s not cutesy, but nor THANK GOD is it sexy. In fact, she looks totally confident and classy — and still gorgeous. If I were the EIC of a magazine aimed at teenage girls, I would move heaven and earth to get this kid on my cover, tout suite.
Also: bonus points for great posture.
