Style File: Hayley Atwell in NYC Promoting “Christopher Robin”

Posted on July 25, 2018

Miss Hayley, we adore you and we’ll watch just about anything upon hearing the news that you will be appearing in it. But as we take in a couple of your promotional tour looks, a new word has suddenly occurred to us; a word that will describe your style approach succinctly and, we’re sorry to say, somewhat brutally. That word?

It’s “Winsleting.”

You’re Winsleting, dear. And while we will always love Kate for her many star turns and entertaining roles over the years, we’ve also spent the last decade bitching about her addiction to generic sheath dresses in basic colors.

And look: we get it. These dresses are flattering and easy to keep presentable while getting in and out of cars or studios. We couldn’t rightly say that she looks bad in either one of these dresses, although the fit in the bust in both cases is a little dicey. No, it’s the style that bugs. It’s stale and it’s un-memorable. If this is the silhouette she’s most comfortable sporting while she makes the promo rounds, we can understand that, but there are more interesting ways of working a body-con look than going around town Winsleting left and right.





We remain surprised by how sweet we found this trailer, having never truly been Pooh fans of any real note. But the design of the worn-down, decades-old stuffed animals is beautifully done; tender and poignant, evoking both childhood and the long passage of time in the same image.
