MET Dark Spirits: Maggie Gyllenhaal
Points for trying something different. And only Maggie G could have pulled it off. But no points for scaring me. Maybe if it was a different colour. But the way it is now, with her face so severe, and the fabric like storm clouds gathered around her legs, like there are spells swirling in those skirts, and that black leather sash an eventual noose for an eventual victim, I imagine that if you were to walk past it would whisper at you, some horrible voice sliding up your neck telling you exactly when and where you’re going to die. This dress is a dark spirit.
And I don’t blame you if you don’t believe. It probably all sounds like some Chinese airy fairy bullsh-t. But I’m telling you, what you wear can affect the feng shui too. And she’s wearing a bad omen. Now I don’t even want to look at it anymore.
