In case you weren’t painfully aware of the fact that this couple is essentially the 70s prom-going poster children, I love that we have a corner of curtain to remind us. Because the color of that curtain is unmistakeable. It’s not quite green, it’s not quite yellow, it’s not quite brown, it’s just the color of the 70s.
But let’s move on to the attire, shall we?
I’m not 100% sure how brown velvet tuxedos are supposed to fit, but there’s something about this particular suit or suit-wearer that makes it seem disproportionately large around the middle.
Oh, who am I kidding? No one’s looking past his hair anyway. Well, except maybe to marvel at the size of his bow tie, which is larger than the width of his face. (True Promtacularity!)
As for her homage to ’76? Again, I’m at a loss. Were these separates? Is that a…sweater? This just seems awfully casual for the same prom that’s warranting brown velvet and giant bow ties from her date.
Or maybe it’s just that her posture seems to suggest she’s apologizing. For her outfit, for his outfit, for the curtain, perhaps for the entire decade.
