Critics Choice Awards 2023: THE MENU STAR Anya Taylor-Joy in Dior Couture

Posted on January 17, 2023

Constant blogging is a matter of establishing a certain set of comforting tics, norms and even catchphrases in order to brand yourself. Having established that blunt truth, we’re now going to repeat ourselves.



Sheer dresses only work in certain kinds of designs. When you take a sort of retro or classic look like this one and just neglect to add a lining, it looks silly to us. More like a mistake than a design choice. It doesn’t feel sexy or alluring, it feels goofy somehow. A party dress for a debutante who’s about the be humiliated by flash cameras. The “nude” color is terrible on her, one in a line of recent bad color choices for her. We think we may have this wholly negative reaction to it because we saw it on stage before we saw the red carpet pictures and ironically, it was during that moment when Amanda Seyfried’s dress started falling apart on camera:

Amanda should send her a fruit basket or something, because the silly distraction of Anya’s dress helped make hers look just a little less disastrous.
