As much as we want to prostrate ourselves before Miss Ri much in the manner we did for Pope Tilda, we’re afraid her PhD-level posing skills and sense of drama aren’t going to be enough.
That is definitely how a diva does it. We’ll give the ensemble credit for being dramatic and potentially very photogenic. And the accessories, including the shades, are well chosen and paint a picture of understated glamour. But this is Dior Couture. And it’s a damn mess. We can see the bust seaming from 20 feet away. She’s doing her best to make it work, but the details – which, the last time we checked are what haute couture is entirely about – are below standard. The cups of that bust look like deflating bath toys. Tsk, Dior. But brava for trying, Ri.
