Ladies and Gentleman, Grinnin’ Rose and her Tap Dancing Revue.
Every time we open our mouths and wonder if sheer hosiery will ever make a comeback, some lady star comes along not long after and wears them in such a totally bugfuckery way that we wind up thinking it’s best for all sheer hosiery to stay in their eggs, where God intended them to be, apparently. Those gold hoofer pumps? Really, girl? What were you thinking? You look like you’re teaching a tap class in the local senior center. And with that hideously cheap-looking gold belt? Honey, say it with us now – and really drag it out: LANVIN. LANVIIIIIINNNNNNNN.
Girlfriend don’t wear no Payless with LANVINNNNNN, okay?
We tend to find most Lanvin joints a bit too tricky for the red carpet or the average dress-wearer, but we actually like this one. It’s still a bit on the overdesigned side of things, but this is very toned down Lanvin and she’s (despite the extremely poor accessorizing here) at least a Master’s-level dress wearer, so it works rather nicely for her. A shame about the shoe and belt madness. Now we’ll never know if sheer hosiery could work in the modern day.
