We are being ASSAULTED by The Vampire’s Wife this week, kittens! In fact, there have been so many of these shiny, juvenile, retro cult dresses on the backs of our ladystars in the last several days that we actually nixed a Natalie Portman post for today because, like Elizabeth here, she opted for something that looks like it belongs on a 6-year-old at her birthday party in 1987.
A 6-year-old who watches a lot of Dynasty and loves herself a Power Bitch shoulder.
We don’t actually mind that shape and style here. Elizabeth is really well-suited to ’80s-inspired styles. But like so much of TVW’s aesthetic and output, we hate the textile. It’s so shiny and chintzy. Even with the high hem and power shoulders, that shiny pillowcase fabric makes it all look juvenile.
