Our review of Halston was a bit more criticism-heavy than the one we’d have loved to have written, but of the few things that the series got exactly right (the costumes, the art direction, Ewan McGregor), we should add Krysta Rodriguez’s performance as Liza Minnelli, which should be considered the definitive take on the legend for some time to come. She deserves every bit of spotlight time she can snag and we hope it leads to more film and TV work for her,

We’re a little torn on this frock. The style is retro-twee, but the textile is a faded denim and the embellishments owe more to jeans and jean jackets than they do to sugary-sweet dress with an eyelet lace scalloped collar. We love a good hard/soft juxtaposition, but we’re not sure these elements marry all that well. Having said that, it suits her really well and if you scroll through the Insta post, it seems pretty obvious that it’s a setting-specific sort of dress. It works in some shots but not others.
The barrettes are fun.
