As Sam already mentioned this morning, Beyonce premiered her new HBO movie last night Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream and wore Elie Saab couture to do so. You can identify the designer because all the beading looks like growths.
Seriously, it looks like strings of growths made from glittery coral:
Setting aside our feelings about Elie Saab as the de facto red carpet choice of Hollywood starlets, the dress strikes us as yet another entrant into what we’re calling the “breast frame” trend–though HuffPo gives it the cuddlier moniker of “boob window.” Both terms are ridiculous.
The “breast frame” was on display just yesterday in our post about the Elle Style Awards, seen on both Samantha Barks and Zawe Ashton. Behold:
It’s like a little picture frame that makes one’s breasts resemble a beautiful hilly landscape.
Oh, and we’re calling this a “trend” because, in journalism, three’s a trend. Since we are by no means journalists here, we’re feeling pretty fucking confident about this.
So, in the time-honored tradition of lazy pseudo-journalism, let’s open this trend up to a poll!
We’re so excited about Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream, by the way. We understand it’s actually a daring, lucid reimagining of The Tempest starring Beyonce as Prospero, Jay-Z as Ariel and Kanye West as Caliban (Kim Kardashian will provide comic relief, playing both Stefano and Trinculo). The magic of showbiz!
