No, when we say they brought their A game, we are quite clearly referring to the game of attention-seeking; a game at which they have become astonishingly adept lately. Not that he’s doing anything all that outrageous here. The jacket’s a bit snug, but it’s got just the right amount of visual interest for him. This one’s all her show and they both know it. If we sound like we’re gushing, make no mistake, it’s not over the style. Her dress, to be quite blunt, is one of the tackiest things we’ve seen all year. If there’s any significance to be found behind the use of safety pins, it doesn’t act as a shield against the critique that it’s a horrible “dress” – and we use that term loosely. It’s really just sleeves and a neck hole with a lot of fabric hanging off them. And the frustrating part is, her accessories game is pretty great. We’re usually proponents of the idea that good accessorizing can really save an outfit from disaster, but there’s no getting away from the Waiting For Crotch show.
