They all dress like a sexy snake, including Gigi Hadid. The pendulum has swung! After the pink valentine has led the Barbiecore revolution for the past six months, the dark side is on the rise. Hollywood is in the age of villains. The era of Disney villains.
Watch Gigi Hadid at Mugler in Times Square a few days ago. I think he’s aiming for biker chic, but if you take off the jacket he looks like Maleficent at the disco. Don’t you think she and Tan France are dwarfs on the shoulders of a handsome but naïve young prince? France urges the prince to do the right thing; Hadid tempts him with a pinch of transgression.
Then, there is Kylie Jenner at the Mugler exhibition last November. The gloves say “rich widow,” the neckline says “femme fatale,” but the hat? The headdress is pure Disney evil stepmother queen. I swear to Hades Susan Sarandon wore the same thing in As if by magic.
Undecided between bad girl and mean woman, Jenner also took a beating at the hoop and a beating in her take on the “sexy snake” look, wearing it both as a bodycon dress…
… both in the «complete 100% leather» version…
But that’s okay, imagine an evil Hercules, but a female one. Could she look a little like this?
And of course the star of Wednesday and scream queen Jenna Ortega would never be found dead covered with frills or floral motifs. Nope, she’s totally on the bad guy train. Indeed, perhaps it is she who is driving. The Versace gown she wore to the SAG Awards was downright sneaky.
And dressed like this by Saint Laurent? Don’t drink her potions! Don’t sign her contracts! Don’t eat her apples! You will pay dearly for her magic!
Like, I’m sure she’s a sweetie in real life, but this is the director of a dance school for the dark arts.
How’s that song by Taylor Swift doing? Lately I’ve been dressing for revenge….
I’m not sure what this east wind is a prelude to for the world of fashion, but I’m curious. Has the country’s mood soured? Tired of the simpering styles of Emily in Paris? Or was a certain influential designer dumped during the holidays?
