Aubrey Plaza attends the premiere of “Ingrid Goes West” during the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival Closing Night in Los Angeles, California.
Can it be, darlings? Can we be witnessing the birth of…
… a MIU MIU MUSE?
Because we’ve gotta say, this style is pretty much perfect for her. Sure, you could drop this dress on a Fanning and she’d look perfectly, adorably appropriate in it. But Miss Aubrey has that perfectly sardonic, aggressively ironic persona that can take a super-twee dress like this one and inexplicably give it a little edge just by putting it on.
Having said that, we do have our quibbles, which should be a surprise to no one who listens to us bitch on the regular. Here’s the thing about tie-able bows on dresses and blouses: 99 times out of a hundred, it’s just going to look better if you tie it into a bow and let it be. That sad little knot is unfabulous. Aside from that, it’s the usual complaints from us: the shoes are an afterthought and the head-styling feels a bit unresolved somehow. Still, it’s a cute style for her, without being cute about it, if you know what we mean.
Your job now is to recommend a different shoe. Pop of color? Sandal vs. closed-toe? The dreaded white pump? Spend your time discussing this very important, totally not frivolous topic.
