Alright. Fine, Amber Heard. You win this round. Yesterday, you forced us to admit that you are perched high on our Irrationally Annoyed-With List and that we find you perpetually, chronically dull.
Then you had to go and do this:
And yes, this is kind of a crazy-ass dress with too many elements. The tricky skirt (which required endless minutes of peering at pictures to determine whether it was a skirt at all; precious minutes in which we could have been downing more coffee so that we can get on with being fabulous & opinionated for another day, mind you) isn’t our favorite thing in the world, nor do we like the tie in the back. And the Pinterest hair just flat-out annoys us. Plus: sideboob and weird eye makeup.
And yet, we can’t help declaring that the whole is more than the sum of its parts and upon first glance, we did a tiny little gay gasp. We said yesterday that even when she wears something batshit crazy, she manages to make it boring, but that quality may have actually helped her here because she’s somehow managed to tone down the crazier aspects of this look just by… well, being Amber Heard.
