We find our many blogger sides at war. On the one side is Miss Taraji and her innate fierceness, which we are dutybound to respond to with fingersnaps at the very least. On the other side is our crushing ennui in re: the loungewear trend, which we keep predicting is going to die, but keeps embarrassing us by refusing to. And it should be noted that of all the loungewear trend iterations, the Public Bathrobe will always be the one we dislike the most.
Enter a bundle of contradictory feelings on our part:
Miss Lady, we love you. But we can’t with this one.
And we admit that Rita Ora once pulled off the Public Bathrobe to rather fabulously campy effect. But we’d argue that her look had a drag-queen’s sense of wit to it and the setting of the MTV EMAs made it feel a bit more on point. Rita looked like a campy-glam version of a mundane look. This just looks like an expensive version of a mundane look. From the neck down, she literally looks like she rolled out of bed. Sure, it was probably the most fabulous, regal bed you ever saw in your life. We’re sure there were feathers involved. And flattering, low-lit rooms. And little tinkling bells to ring if she wanted someone to bring her mineral water. But still: girlfriend woke up like this.
It’s too literal and not … we don’t know… fun, we guess.
