Sunday night's season-two premiere offered up a spoil of riches for the Internet to latch onto, like Shailene Woodley dancing to Sufjan Stevens on the beach or every time Meryl Streep straight up insulted Reese Witherspoon. But this week's biggest meme moment goes to Laura Dern's Renata and her incredible power-woman photo shoot. Renata, of course, is a hard-core businesswoman, wife, and mother to Amabella—she of the bullying situation that kicked off the first season.
Everything about Renata's photo shoot is glorious. As Renata sings along to Diana Ross's "It's My House," she is fully embracing the badass within and lamenting about lesser shoots. "I'm so tired of those shots of women," she says. "I mean, they're in power, right? They own banks, and they're all, like, demure. Bullshit."
Twitter took the moment and ran with it. "My queen bitch hath risen! #BigLittleLies," one user wrote. "PSA: Laura Dern is a national treasure. #BigLittleLies," another said.
"Me: Eh, I don’t know if #BigLittleLies needed another season that goes beyond the book," someone tweeted. "Also me: This is the best show on television and I’d watch 200 episodes."
“Renata is fierce and complicated and a nightmare, and also just wants a girlfriend and deserves to be seen because she’s lived in a man’s world her whole life,” Dern told the Guardian about Renata. “And what it takes for a woman in tech, a woman in banking, a woman in publishing—who you have to be and what you have to walk through to get the one seat in that boardroom of 13….”
It seems like she channeled all of that into the photo-shoot scene, and we seriously cannot wait to see what she serves up next week.
