Posted on June 04, 2014

If we like this at all, it’s only because of who’s wearing it.

Mmmm….no. We don’t like this very much, we’re afraid. But we do like it on her, if that makes any sense. If the white lace parts could just be mentally erased from this dress, we’d probably be much more on board with it. The hem length’s a little odd on her, but for some reason – again, none of this is making much sense to us except that it’s all driven by a love for Queen Helen – we’re tickled by the black lace boots peeking out the bottom.

We don’t know … it’s objectively bad to us, and yet somehow almost right for her. Such is the power of Queen Helen of Fuckinfantastica.

Strangely enough, we think this might work equally well on Helena Bonham Carter – except the white lace would almost certainly have to be black.
