Zendaya told the press that her pink dress was inspired by Madonna in the Material Girl video, and while no one loves classic Madonna like I do, I wish someone on Team Zendaya had explained that Madonna was herself dressed exactly like Marilyn Monroe in Gentleman Prefer Blondes. You can’t expect a seventeen year old to know that (although I did, but I am from a time when what is now The CW was just a local station, and that local TV station showed a LOT of musicals), but you do expect the people who dressed her to give her a correct soundbite so as to avoid such KIDS TODAY GET OFF MY LAWNING as…well, this. You can also apply my curmudgeonly attitude to Bella Thorne’s constant near-nip.
