We’re thinking our podcast predictions regarding how each nominee and presenter was going to dress are running at roughly 75% accuracy so far. That’s not too bad. We were way off on the color trends (which were nonexistent) and some of the lady noms managed to surprise us, but when it came time to predict a look for Miss Halle, we had no trouble describing it ahead of time. “She’s gonna wear some dress that looks like it’s falling apart or something. She loves that.”
A singed, tied-together, body-con Versace? Done and done. While the dress isn’t to our tastes, it’s mostly a good choice for her. We just don’t like the fringe at the bottom of the skirt. It’s unnecessary.
We love the idea of the hair, but it’s a little lopsided, which is really distracting. It’s clearly meant to be presented as a natural shape, and we don’t think a perfectly spherical afro would have done her any good, but our eyes keep going to that one side. Are we wrong to think it could’ve benefitted from a little more teasing out?
Also, she could’ve used much more dramatic earrings. The volume of hair requires a little visual balance. Besides, you can barely see the ones she has on.
