WERQ: Zooey Deschanel in Kate Spade
It seems we too often default to the common usage of “WERQ,” which is to say, outfits that are so fierce they rate a head roll and two snaps up, but the T Lo Philosophy of WERQism is broader than that. A gal deserves a “WERQ!” when she’s put together well and clearly thinks so. Case in point:
Sometimes Zooey’s predilection for tweeness gets on our nerves. The same can more than be said about Kate Spade’s designs. And yet, this looks adorable to us without giving us a toothache. We figure if you’re on a beige carpet celebrating a Winnie the Pooh premiere, this level of sweet is just about right. We, of course, would not have chosen such bland shoes, but we kind of like the purse she’s sporting. She looks fresh and sophisticated without looking too cute or too showy. That’s not an easy balance to strike and we salute her … with a head roll and two snaps up.
Just doing our best to keep those ancient gay stereotypes alive, darlings. We’re like the Library of Gay Congress.
