You’d think from reading this headline/caption on Yahoo! Shine that you could “steal” a gown today, March 20, 2014, and that gown would be the one that Kristen Bell wore on the red carpet:
Of course, stealing is wrong and I believe the writer was speaking figuratively. But I just couldn’t understand the rest of that sentence. Who was Lauren Frankfort? Was she the designer of the soon-to-be purloined gown? Being a lover of wedding gowns, I had to get some answers. So, I bravely clicked the caption.
The truth is, that is not a picture of Kristen Bell’s “wedding-worthy gown.” And said gown is not going to be available today, March 20. That’s the date the article was published on Shine. And Lauren Frankfort? Not the designer, but the writer of the article. Is there anything with any truthiness in that caption and picture? Yes. Kristen Bell’s name is spelled correctly.
