I actually almost put this up to a Fug or Fab vote, because we’re on a plane today, and polls sometimes generate more of a “talk amongst yourselves” vibe than me straight up hammering something. But I don’t particularly like this, in the end, and naturally I will blab on at length about why.
The miniskirt piece sits high and boxy, which isn’t as flattering as it could be, but that’s not my beef. No, my particular cut of steak here is that those high-fashion floor tiles that pass for a skirt are drawing my attention to how weird the human knee looks. I’m not talking about Rose’s knees specifically, which I’m sure are patellar perfection. I’m speaking about the knee in general. How often do you ever actually isolate a human kneecap? Never, until today. And now I’m just staring at it, and y’all, my elegantly intellectual conclusion here is: knees are weird. KNEES ARE WEIRD. They, like any of the words involved on Game of Thrones, need their full context.
