It’s a rare event when we get to showcase Good Lady Cate and Pope Tilda I in the same morning, but we figure you kittens could you use as much serene fabulosity as you can get. But we should probably warn you that the pontiff doesn’t exactly knock this one out of the park, even though she’s had a fairly holy and sacred relationship with the House of Schiaparelli up until now.
Sorry, Your Excellency, but that appears to be a bit too much for even you to handle. While it’s certainly precious enough for any event saluting Wes Anderson, we don’t think it suits her all that well. It’s got that weird, off-the-beaten-path quality she looks for in her style choices. And she’s doing that very Pope Tilda thing of deliberately drawing your eye to her hands and feet. But this ensemble is the one thing a PT the First ensemble should never, ever be: Fussy. The shoulders/bodice/waist are all kind of impossible to make work without looking kind of rumpled and askew. And those are two words that should never appear in the same hemisphere as the pontiff.
