Rare is the occasion when we use “twee” in a complimentary manner, and only when the person in question has a real facility for this style. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this tends to be a small, pretty English actress a lot of the time. Miss Claire’s promotional style is all over the map in a somewhat endearing way. She tries a lot of things and only rarely hits all the marks, but her clear efforts – and the variety of her choices – make her fun to watch from a fashion-gazing perspective.
Queen Twee, take it away:
Claire Foy makes an appearance on “The Today Show” to promote the new season of “The Crown” in NYC in Gucci.
HOW RIDICULOUSLY ADORABLE IS THIS? She looks like she belongs under a Christmas tree, with a bow and a gift tag attached.
The lighting here is terrible (but hey, RESPECT for looking so damn cute before the sun comes up), so…
They’re both just a little too adorable right now. We’re gonna need to swallow a teaspoon of salt just to cut all this sweetness. That dress is entirely too much, but she’s really making it work. Not so much on the hairpins, but we suspect they’ll have more than their share of defenders amongst those who remember the ’90s.

AGAIN with the ridiculous cuteness and questionable hair.
We’ll say this about the Brit actresses: they don’t suffer from that seasonal fashion disorder so many of their American counterparts tend to. No springtime frocks for this lot in December. You’re gonna get plaids and sparkle and bows, dammit.
It’s fun to watch a rising star get better and better at their promotional work right in front of your eyes. She’s so much more polished than she was just a year ago.
