A couple of honest-to-Coco fashionistas have been out here on the world’s red carpets, working that promo pole like a couple of pros. We have been remiss in our duties by not paying them the attention they deserve.

Here is where we admit we’ve been sitting on these pictures for a day or two. Why? Because what the hell do we have to add to this? They look amazing. The funny thing is, we don’t like Gabrielle’s dress at all. The textile is pretty, but the shape, drape, and inexplicable fringe are all questionable. It doesn’t matter because she’s working the shit out of it and they look fantastic side-by-side.

It’s clear they’re coordinating their looks but they both have style teams smart enough to make sure they never look like they’re wearing a uniform or going twinsies. The vibe of each outfit here is distinct but the effect is unified. Love the pops of orange in Gabrielle’s look. Jessica’s dress is simple but cute. We like the flats but they’d be better without the little bows.

“For the next one, let’s pretend we’re going to a party in 1972!” “You’re on! See you there!”
This is how you know you’re dealing with next-level promotional fashion practitioners. They can have fun with it for no reason at all and it doesn’t come across gimmicky.
