aldo-vallon - March 2, 2018

It is about time that the styles from the roaring twenties came back around to relevancy. I am grateful that Tessa Thompson decided to take her rightful place at the vanguard of the flapper movement in order to more quickly spur on its acceptance. Although I will say that she took a bit more of a shiny interpretation of it than I was expecting. I suppose it is only right that the future incarnation would look like it was dipped in chrome, but that also makes her look more like a disco ball, which is another period entirely.

She had better be careful and not wear that dress out on the street. If the light hits it just right then she could end up on the business end of a lawsuit due to blinding a driver and causing an accident. It is hard to imagine Tessa’s eyes looking anymore sad than they already naturally do, but if that lawsuit was to happen I imagine we would see them droop a few more degrees. I am not sure how that would affect her vision, but it would make it hell to find a pair of properly fitting glasses.
