Miss Elle continues her efforts toward a more grown-up, less princessy style – and the results, they are mixed.
L’il tip? If you want to transition into fully grownup styles, it doesn’t help if you choose to wear gigantic pieces that make you look like a kid playing dressup with their mom’s clothes. The basic styles suit her, but we don’t love the sheer and floaty quality of the skirt and blouse, both of which would be improved in a more substantial textile. We think either of them might work on their own, paired with something else, but together, they’re too much to our eyes. And all that sheer floatiness doesn’t quite work with 10 pounds of boot on each foot. Love the shades, though.

The Los Angeles Times called it “a nuanced exploration of the gender-bending figures, insider lingo and significant milestones in queer history to which the show owes its existence.”
The Washington Post said it “arrives at just the right time … because the world needs authenticity in its stories. Fitzgerald and Marquez deliver that, giving readers an insight into the important but overlooked people who made our current moment possible.”
Paper Magazine said to “think of it as the queer education you didn’t get in public school” and The Associated Press said it was “delightful and important” and “a history well told, one that is approachable and enjoyable for all.”
