Anatomy of an Outfit: Maya’s Heartbreaker Homecoming
Girl-on-girl sexual tension never looked so good. At a chance run-in by the school vending machines, Emily and her girl-crush Maya made awkward small talk about homecoming. “Dance music isn’t my thing,” Maya said. “I’m not really gaga for Gaga.” That didn’t stop her, however, from dressing for some bad romance with Emily come dance time. Maya turned up in a satin yellow sweetheart dress and mega-statement crystal necklace. Her makeup was flawless. Her up-do defied gravity. Clearly, Maya was dressed to impress. Too bad, then, that Emily showed up with her very male date, Toby. Better luck at prom?
