The trailer for Lifetime‘s Whitney Houston biopic was released yesterday, and everyone seems to be marveling at the fact that the movie actually looks good. (I’m confused, has Lifetime ever made a bad movie?) We here at The Gloss are marveling over something else entirely: how on earth did they fit so many sequins into a one-minute trailer??
In one minute full of singing, sexing, and drug-doing, Lifetime‘s costume designers managed to squeeze in not three, not five, not seven, but nine different sequined outfits on star Yaya DaCosta. With so much else going on, the math on that just seems improbable.
Of course, the looks are fabulously dramatic in the spirit of Whitey Houston and her singular voice. But human nature hath bestowed upon us this nasty little habit of putting things in order, so I must rank the sequins for you here and now.
