Ventures in Vanity

by Noah Haalilio Solomon


Glimpse this recently sequestered beauty in an asset-boasting gown that swaths her body, over curves and immaculately. The red, gauzy chiffon props itself about her elfin frame, when best-dressed praise or overly-attentive wardrobe concern is the least I can give to such grace, such poise.

The ensemble settles, roiling into a lacy train that trails her in obtuse angles to the ground. Accessorized sparingly, the dress’s own geometry reaffirms that my minimal attention to pop-culture is situated appropriately: on Hollywood’s effervescence.
