Praise be to Netflix. While most film studios have consistently pushed back the release dates of their films the straight to stream service has not pushed back any planned releases. I remember being bored two years ago and putting on The Kissing Booth for shits and giggles. I actually ended up quite enjoying the movie. It was fun and light. So I am hoping that the sequel will have that same feeling when it is released next weekend. With college decisions looming, Elle (played by Joey King) juggles her long-distance romance with Noah (played by Jacob Elordi), changing relationship with bestie Lee (played by Joel Courtney) and feelings for a new classmate. I am really sad that the film wont have a red carpet premiere as I have really fallen in love with Joey King. She doesn’t conform to what is expected and always has fun on the red carpet. For this premiere I turned to the same designer whom Joey wore earlier this year for the Golden Globe Awards: Iris Van Herpen. The Dutch designer only showed ONE look during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Online. The dress was dubbed “the Transmotion dress.” Anchored by an intricate lattice of black branches — laser-cut and hand-stitched in duchess satin — that erupt into flower-like sprays of white silk organza petals, the edges crimped and undulating. What’s more, the bodice and hem sprout delicate, transparent filaments that end in seed-like black crystals. They orbit the dress and have a life of their own. This super avant garde yet super feminine dress is absolutely something I think that Joey would be able to sell to me on the red carpet. She knows how to make those more avant garde options come across effortless. I really do think that rocking this dress with a sleek wavy updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Thyra’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and asymmetrical white diamond Yeprem ‘Snowflakes’ asymmetrical diamond earrings would have ensured that Joey would have given us a major Best Dressed of the Year worthy red carpet moment.
The Kissing Booth 2 is set to drop on Netflix Friday July 24, 2020.
