Let us begin our week’s work with a lesson on Workin’ It. Note that there is a difference between “WERQ!” and “Workin’ It,” as we define the terms here at T Lo Arbitrary Distinctions, Ltd. You see, “WERQ!” is an exclamation that escapes from the lips of the excitable when they find themselves faced with someone who’s got it going on from head to toe and looks damn near perfect. That is not quite what’s happening here:

You see, Miss Cate does not look perfect or even damn near it, because that dress is quite problematic and downright strange-looking. Cate, however, is Workin’ It, because she’s striking the exact pose and adopting the exactly correct attitude of “I’m stunning and you peasants all know it,” to overcome the oddness of her frock.
