Sachiko Kobayashi, New Year’s Eve, 2010. (2009, 2008)

To have put Kobayashi-san “up her own ass” would have been too coarse a metaphor for the NHK visual effects department who, burdened as they are every year with the task of outdoing the previous year’s efforts when it comes to finding some gaudy mechanism for the old lady to appear in, opted instead this year for putting her “in her own hands.”

This year’s gown - we’ll call it a gown - made last year’s look positively casual.
