You may already know it, but the point of this post is that when I saw the thumbnail, I absolutely didn’t. In fact, let me recreate that tiny experience for you.
My first thought was, “What is Ashlee Simpson promoting?” And then, “Wait, did Nicky Hilton get a haircut, and also, isn’t she currently pregnant?”
But obviously, it’s not either of them.
It is Andrea Riseborough, and that may have been obvious to you all given how we were JUST talking about how difficult she can be to recognize from event to event, but — yet again — my brain just could not connect the plug to the socket. Obviously a huge part of that is the heavy eye makeup, which from a distance changes her face for me considerably. But, I mean, this is my JOB, being able to tell these people apart. And I’m the only one of us who’s been writing about her lately. WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO LEARN.
The dress is also… creatively terrifying. I can see her underwear, and the sun on her pelvis clearly has just witnessed a murder. Good thing all you need is one eye to be a witness. I assume it will be giving its statement shortly.
