The Stranger Genius Awards: Overheard in the Office Edition

Posted by on Wed, Sep 19, 2012 at 1:53 PM

People keep talking—more this year than ever—about what they're going to wear on Saturday night, what they wish other people would wear on Saturday night, how the Genius Awards are an unusual night for Seattle fashion, etc.

I'm guessing the nature of this year's Genius party—more energy and more anticipation because nobody, including the arts staff, knows who's going to win—is heightening the sense of spectacle. Plus, there will be a 50-piece orchestra playing covers of songs by our music nominees, a dance performance by Kate Wallich, a world-premiere cello composition by music nominee Lori Goldston, and much more. All this display has people thinking seriously about their costumes.

Most people around the office seem to know what they'll be wearing, except for music editor Emily Nokes. "I haven't found anything to wear yet," she said a few seconds ago. "But I did buy some pink lipstick."

Apply enough lipstick, and you have your outfit right there.

I'm curious how it is an unusual night for Seattle fashion? Is there an unusual dress code? Now I'm intrigued.

Sad to be out of town for the party this year, can't wait to find out who takes the cakes.

Click the down arrow at the top-center of the pop-up and watch it magically disappear!

Compte: Thanks for the advice, but I can't find a down arrow at the top-center. If I click anything I get the stupid ad, therefore I feel I am being personally targeted for harrassment.
