One singular sensation

I took a jazz dance class in the sixth grade. We learned a dance routine to the song One, from A Chorus Line. You know the song. It will be burned in your brain for the rest of the day. “One. Singular sensation. Every little step she takes…”

We wore little tuxedo leotards and white bowler hats with a silver sequined band. Just like Nicole Richie’s headband. I’m not kidding. It was exactly the same.

I’m sure┬áthe Marc Jacobs show was pretty great. I hope Miss Richie liked it. And thank heavens he featured rakish Mary Poppins hats rather than sequined headbands.

Curtain swag

Oh, to be eighteen again. Fair hair. Dewy skin. And┬ástinking filthy unbelievably rich from all the Harry Potter movies. The world is Emma Watson’s oyster.

So why dost thou wear my mother-in-law’s draped curtain swags? Sure, her curtains aren’t made by Alexander McQueen. They are probably polyester chiffon from JC Penney. But the resemblance is striking.

I’d actually like the dress a lot more without the draping along the top. The beading along the bodice is absolutely beautiful, and the draping in the skirt is tolerable (except perhaps for the front v).

The custom Alexander McQueen shoes scream– can you hear them screaming?– bad bridal shoe. You can never go wrong with silver and strappy. Stay away from the Marie Antoinette slippers.

Finally. With all affection. We love you. Emma, please lighten the color of your eyebrows.
