Rookie

86 notes

Maybe it sounds ridiculous, taking a concept so simple and banal as dressing for an awards show in 1-percenter Hollywood, and turning it into a righteous reclamation of body politic. But it does a lot for those of us who’ve struggled with this our whole lives. And when anyone in the public eye wears their chests with confidence—whether it’s Kat Dennings, Zooey Deschanel, Tina Fey, or Padma Lakshmi, all of whom let their necklines go free—it’s a welcome bit of encouragement
