Thandie Newton in Rodarte at the “Solo: A Star Wars Story” Special BFI Screening

Posted on May 24, 2018

Based solely on her amazing turn this season on Westworld, we are riding a Miss Thandie Love high right now. We have decided to stan, in other words.

But our duties as bitchy gays must take precedence over our emotions and we are thus compelled to admit that this look isn’t working for us:

She’s a gal who can work a High Romantic look, but there’s romance and then there’s “drugstore Valentine’s Day card.” This tips a little too close to the latter.

But our distaste for this style doesn’t particularly matter in this case because the main issues here are in the design itself; namely, the bizarrely low-slung bust and the overuse of illusion netting. We’ll admit the latter almost comes close to her matching her skin tone, but once you see it, the preponderance of it becomes all you can see. If you’re not focused on the weirdly long bust and short waist of the proportions.
