Miss Maggie indulges in the hottest trend of the season, if you measure the season by the past few days.
This isn’t the first metallic dress we’ve seen this week. It’s not even the fourth. It is, however, one of our favorites, partially because the retro style of the dress both suits her perfectly and also serves to make a nice juxtaposition with the textile itself. That tension between mumsy form and sci-fi glam textile is what makes it, we think. Similarly our expectations as to what kind of event one would find someone wearing this dress run counter to where we actually are. Our expected venues for this sort of look run along the lines of “My Star Wars movie is opening” or “My superhero movie is opening.” We had no reason to expect Miss Maggie to glam things up for a Broadway benefit. It looks really great on her, but we can’t say we’re loving those high-vamped chorus girl shoes.
