Okay, first: Sharp Objects is haunting and tense and poignant and amazing and the only reason we’re not writing about it is because we’re storing up all our opinions on the inevitable long-winded costume design analysis to come. Easily one of our favorite TV things to happen this year.
Second, Miss Amy is giving the performance of her life and should be on track to scoop up all the awards available to her.
Third, that career-high is translating into how she dresses, which is exactly how career-highs should be represented visually, no matter your profession. Did you get a promotion, or raise or service award? Put on your cutest and strut, girl.
Fourth, despite our excitement that she’s feeling herself enough to move away from the boring sheaths she tends to favor, we have to contend with an iteration of a dress that most of the kittens didn’t like when we put it up to a vote the other day.
Chloe Moretz wore the same print – totally different style and silhouette – the other day and when we put it up to a vote, the kitten consensus was negative. It had its defenders, though.
We’re still not super-crazy about the print, which looks like a florist’s catalog or web page printout. But we can’t deny the appeal of the color story, which is bold and vibrant and off the beaten path. We think it works much better on this style and silhouette, both of which look great on her. We’re happy to see her branching out, and this look is mostly a win as far as we’re concerned. But we sure hope this doesn’t become the Next Hot Look among celebritykind. Stylists, don’t go pushing this refrigerator calendar print on us for the rest of the summer. Amy’s making it work, but we can tell it’s an extremely user-specific textile.
