The hair will always be crazy and in her face. And a nest in the back. And I’m not sure any stylist would admit to having created it. Can you imagine HBC having her hair done anyway? Or by anyone else? She did this in the hotel, right? Had to have.
And then there’s the dress. It’s fine up top before disintegrating into frayed pieces at the bottom. Sure, it’s neatly hemmed by individual layer. But when you stack them all together, the effect, especially when she’s walking, is such that she took a pair of scissors to a perfectly tidy skirt and just started cutting. And why not. Would you have it any other way?
Sometimes the shoes are different. Sometimes she forgets a sleeve. Sometimes the socks are on her arms. And this is personality. As opposed to Renee Zellweger which seems more like…fear.
