The above photo is not of Halsey at the Glamour Women of the Year conference (not to be confused, as I initially did, with the actual awards; I guess you can be invited to one and not necessarily the other?). Our photo sources didn’t cover the daytime summit; only Getty did, but I can’t lead off with an embed, so instead here is Halsey yesterday wandering around in a beret and a hella-expensive fanny pack, looking like a cross between Emily Valentine on 90210 and a Kardashian. It’s not great and also my wrist is getting a cramp just from looking at her carrying her iced coffee that way.
HERE is her ensemble from the Glamour day:
It is HEAVY on Pirate Wench. And it is VINTAGE DIOR. Oh, DIOR. Do we think “vintage” means “secretly only just from the real shitshow Raf Simons years”? Maybe they didn’t use the harness with it. But, boy, should that not be Dior’s aesthetic. Also, does anyone but me (and Jessica) watch The Good Doctor? The actress playing Freddie Highmore’s friend/roommate on that show looks so MUCH like Halsey to me that I often have to remind myself that one is not the other.
Ashley Graham also popped by:
I am not sure who brought us this, but it’s mostly so great on her, and thus SO unnecessary that we can see her undercrackers.
What would happen if Nico Tortorella and Ezra Miller started hanging out together? Would they repel, like magnets with the same polarity, or would they create some kind of vortex?
Uzo looks fantastic in this Jeffrey Dodd outfit. So much so that I don’t even CARE that her shoes are snoozy.
The adjustments that made this actually wearable seem to have improved it. There’s something charmingly Betty Cooper about wearing it with a cardigan, also.
At first I thought I didn’t care for this, but then I sat with it, and… it might actually be sort of groovy? In an “I run a super funky salon where we give you ACTUAL GOWNS while we do your hair” kind of way, maybe, but she’s carrying it off admirably.
Now, Lupita Nyong’o DID go to the actual awards shebang, but skipped the proper red carpet and only showed up backstage:
I love how warrior-chic that Celine is, but my concerns that it’s sideboob-a-riffic MAY be validated by her choice to spend the key portions of the night in a leather jacket:
She presented in it, she posed backstage with Kamala in it, and only took it off for a brief shot of the full dress, which makes me think she did that out of obligation only? Who knows. The jacket and glasses frankly add a lot of zing. But I will never understand not bothering to walk the red carpet of an event of which you are a part (Lupita) or for which you’re a recipient of something (Kamala). Maybe they… ran late? And while I’m questioning things: Next year, Glamour, please let other photographers into this event, okay? THINK OF THE BLOGGERS.
