Constance Wu and Shawn Mendes at the LYLE, LYLE, CROCODILE Premiere

Posted on October 04, 2022

Full disclosure: These shots kept getting pushed further back on the old blogging roster mostly because they look so off to us.



Like, they make an odd pairing, their outfits couldn’t be more different in style, and they look like they’re posing in a grade school cafeteria. Just… off, you know? Let’s assess them individually.




It’s cute, it’s picture-ready, it’s a little basic. That last point doesn’t really matter because she’s here to promote a movie about a talking crocodile who sounds like Shawn Mendes when he sings. Nothing wrong with wholesome family entertainment, but couture isn’t expected for the event. But like we said: cute. Perfectly serviceable. We might have rec’d a slightly more interesting sandal to bump things up a bit.




We suppose if you’re the singing crocodile in the singing crocodile movie, showing up in green is pretty much required at least once during the promo tour. We hate to trash this because we said for years that his style was Banana Republic basic and whatever else you can say about this look, it’s not that. We think if we had to pinpoint the part that’s working least for us, it’s that shirt. Maybe something a little more fitted, in a print.
