Carpets & Candids: Vanessa’s sheared sleeves
It gives me great pleasure that Amber Heard has to deal with designer scraps at an event like the MET Gala while it’s understood that Vanessa Paradis will always have access to Chanel’s best pieces. And this is one of the best Chanel pieces.
These sheared, crazy cut sleeves. The bodice with its strategically placed squares. It’s the sheer thing, which won’t die, but it doesn’t feel like the kind of sheer thing that everyone else, and all the Kardashians, keep doing over and over and over again. And the thing with Vanessa is… she’s wearing it so casually. Most people put on a dress like this and it becomes A MOMENT and the posing and the hip cocking and the pouting turns it into a spectacular. With Vanessa there’s none of that. And she looks f-cking amazing.
