If this election cycle has taught us anything, it is that 1) America, land of opportunity, has perhaps given too many second chances to some of her citizens, and 2) you can backtrack on literally anything you have ever said (opens in new tab), no matter how gruesome and/or treasonous. The second point brings us to this story (opens in new tab), in which we pronounced that celebrities never wear satin because it wrinkles and puckers faster than a presidential candidate's mouth after he's been admonished for interrupting his rival. Technically un-false! But there's always that one exception, isn't there?

Why you gotta do me like that, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (what a name)? At this weekend's LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented by Gucci (opens in new tab) (again, what a name), the human equivalent of a peach wore a pink slip dress in that troublesome fabric that stayed miraculously, maddeningly—well, for those of us who had internet cred riding on this—uncreased.

Given that this event took place in L.A., Where Everything Is 20 Minutes Away, we can only assume that RHW, after being well smoothed-out and shellacked, laid down very carefully in the back of an SUV and meditated for the duration of the car ride so as not to disturb the skirt. (Yes, a real thing—Beyoncé's stylist said so (opens in new tab).) Or Alessandro Michele was like "Let there be an on-site steamer!" Or black magic—that is not out of the realm of possibility.
