While I appreciate that Ruth Negga is an actor, primarily, and not a celebrity first — and ergo, when she’s not promoting something or nominated for something, she withdraws from the spotlight and tends to her rose garden or her rare book collection or her pet koalas, or whatever it is that occupies her free personal time — I am also not a cyborg, and thus I am pleased when she does pop up again on the red carpet. And in very fancy Chanel, no less. Do I sort of wish this dress ended where the feathers are? Yes, but I also sort of wish John Cho were my husband. We can’t always get everything that seems like it might be nice.
