Whenever life has me down, particularly when I feel like I'm at my wits' end with regards to the general possibility of a tangible future for humankind, I take solace in the fact that—at any given moment—someone of stature will do something perceived as questionable, thus inspiring a bunch of other people to start piling on the topic via tweets that ultimately land in a starkly so-so article such as this one.
Anyway, as you may or may not have heard at this juncture, a Kylie Jenner x Handmaid's Tale party is apparently something that happened over the weekend.
Per People, Jenner hosted the peculiarly themed party for Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou at her Hidden Hills home, complete with Praise Be Vodka and Under His Eyes Tequila specialty drinks for costumed guests. Hulu's Handmaid's Tale adaptation, supposedly a favorite of Jenner's, is notable for its deeply dystopian plot point of women being forced into surrogacy.
And, as promised, here's some commentary from the general public on all that:
Amazingly, this isn't the first time someone mined the Margaret Atwood classic for costume inspiration. Last Halloween season, for example, brought us a whole debacle centered around the existence of a Handmaid's Tale-nodding costume from Yandy.
The show itself, meanwhile, kicked off its third season earlier this month with the release of three new episodes.
