One thing we’ve noticed recently: when you get her out of the Dior she wears so well, Miss Marion manages to have quite a bit of fun with her fashion.

It’s so far from her mega-French Dior getups that it takes a little getting used to. We like it, though. A little bit boho; a little bit chic. It’s a tea party, after all; not an awards show or premiere. Our first impulse is to want to see the hem raised to cocktail length, but upon consideration, we think the length here really makes the look. It’s just different enough.
But if that getup took some work for you to get used to, then the next one’s going to prove quite the challenge for you. Brace yourself:

The cropped pants and buttoned-up blouse scream early ’90s to us, and yes, everyone’s going to rush to point out her vagina flower, which is kind of hard to unsee, but this is so ballsy-crazy that we’ve come halfway around to loving it. Awards season gets so samey-samey all the time, with one metallic gown after another paraded in front of our eyes, that it’s fun to see someone… well, having fun with it all.
Do not try this at home, though. Marion is a trained professional on a closed track.
