Charlize, sweetie. This is where we take you by the shoulders and say, “Charlize, sweetie. THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO GO.”
She’s Madonna’d herself. We’re upset. It’s all so … extra. That’s not a word we’d ever thought to use regarding her style efforts, before. In fact, for much of her public life, when she needed to get dressed up for a red carpet, she maintained an aura of goddess-like ease, in which she only needed to put on a gold gown, get herself a spray tan, and stand there, waiting for the public to fall at her feet. We don’t know what’s changed for her since then, aside from perhaps the enormous pressures facing every actress who dares to continue seeking work past her 40th birthday, but all of this feels like an over-reaction of sorts. It’s too much. We don’t need a Charlize who relies on a carwash skirt, thigh-high boots, fishnets, visible bra-and-panties, an up ‘do, and too much jewelry.
Girl, This is Not Your Dress. More importantly, it just doesn’t feel like you at all.
