Back off, bitches. We saw her first.
Last week, social media had a minor eruption when Miss Gemma, currently on the promo tour for Crazy Rich Asians, answered the question of who should play her in a movie with the name of Scarlett Johansson, in an apparent reference to the recent controversies surrounding the whitewashed casting of Ghost in the Shell and the recently abandoned casting as a transgender man. It was a deliciously shady answer and just the kind of thing to set the twitters afire. We harrumped like a couple of harrumphers, because we’ve been hardcore stanning her since season one of Humans. While the show failed to hold our interest past season 2, she had our little gay hearts the first time her implacable robot self booted up. She’s always been fabulous, smart, and savvy as an actress and WE SAW HER FIRST.
But there’s no reason we can’t all come together as one to judge her outfit gently.
Fortunately, there’s nothing here to do but praise it. It’s breezy-chic, perfect for a summer promo tour. We’re going to turn one question over to y’all (as if you needed the encouragement to opine on the matter): The yellow pumps? Yes or no? We think a pop of color is the right way to go, but we’re not sure that shade does much for the dress.
