Does Kylie Jenner Even Understand ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’?

Curated via Twitter from W magazine’s twitter account….

And then this weekend happened. “You know The Handmaid’s Tale is my favorite show ever. So welcome to Gilead! ” Jenner said on Instagram Stories, in a video showcasing how she, for the 22nd birthday of her BFF Anastasia Karanikolaou, had turned her corner of Calabasas into Gilead, the dystopian nightmare for women depicted in the Hulu show.

Clearly, Jenner couldn’t wait for the others to join them in costume: “Okay, get your outfits! ” she yelled impatiently, gesturing to hangers of handmaid uniforms, comprising white bonnets and scarlet robes—the latter of which happened to match several of the cocktails on offer, including “Praise Be” vodka and “Under His Eye” tequila.

She’s not alone in turning to The Handmaid’s Tale at such a pivotal moment, or declaring it to be her “favorite show ever. ” But she’s definitely the only one to attempt to turn its narrative about the abuse of human rights into a party theme.
