It never really occurred to us until now, but this specific look – a business-like pantsuit paired with a high-end graphic tee – is kind of her go-to look. We’ve seen some version of this on her going back years. And if we wanted to be total bitches about it, we’d say overuse renders it borderline stale, as looks go.
But Miss Julia has spent her entire career shutting the mouths of bitches like us:
We’re not going to pretend we love everything about this. The pants are a tough length and there could be a bit more contrast between the shirt and jacket, in our opinion. The fit overall is not great and we don’t think the jacket was designed to be worn open. But we can’t deny it’s fun and bright and kinda looks pretty great on stage, once she sits down. It’s not high fashion, but it’s high impact and there’s something a little personable about it, which is on point if you’re selling your project to a room full of television critics – who can be waaay bitchier than us when they want to be. She’s playing happy, bright, fun Julia to the hilt.
