Gabrielle Union in Maria Lucia Hohan at the 2014 BET Awards

Posted on June 30, 2014

We’re trying very hard to understand the thought processes here. It’s not working.

Thigh-high boots. Suede thigh-high boots. In June. Paired with a diaphanous white gown. We keep saying all those words over and over again (especially “diaphanous” because it’s a fabulous word that  sounds like an ancient Roman drag name) and putting them in all kinds of different order, and they just don’t compute for us. There is no sentence that would explain or make sense of this outfit. She looks like a little girl playing in a big sister’s closet and trying everything on at once.

The completely befuddling pairing is made even worse by the fact that it’s not a very nice dress, is it? The bodice seems to have nothing whatsoever to do with her actual shape. It’s just a high-waisted (almost NO-waisted) square with a neckline that looks botched somehow.

Everything about this is horrible, Gabrielle. We’re afraid we’re going to have to ask you to leave.
