New Hero: Taco Belle, Princess Of Fourth Meal
OK, so I’m not going to lie, despite my complete and total confoundment with Taco Bell, I am sort of obsessed with it as a cultural phenomenon. It blows my mind that you can put their ingredients together in any combination and still come up with a palatable menu item. It also blows my mind that Taco Bell eschewed black pepper for years in favor of black pepper flavor. (I mean, what? Is black pepper expensive now?) And then, of course, there’s the whole issue of Cap’n Crunch Delights, a Taco Bell pastry invention that turned Cap’n Crunch cereal into dough, stuffed it full of icing, and then fried it.
But my Taco Bell fascination/fandom comes nowhere even close to that of Olivia Mears, who has fashioned herself into my official new favorite Disney princess. Behold, Taco Belle:
That dress. That dress manages to look both delicious and as if someone is trying to make a feminist statement. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more vaginal dress in my life.
Anyway, Mears is a Taco Bell superfan who was previously featured in a Taco Bell commercial in a Sriracha sauce-themed dress. She hand-crafted her whole Belle getup, including making the flowers on the neckline from (unused) Taco Bell wrappers.
Taco Belle, you are a goddess. I bow down to your savory greatness.
