Have we reached peak Babygirl?

It’s the Baftas this weekend, and the ‘he-vage’ will be out in force. It’s moved on a step from the deep-Vs of my youth. Now, the dress code may as well read ‘black tie, leave the shirt at home’.

Why are we talking about it now? Well, Jacob Elordi (he of Euphoria, Saltburn, extreme tallness and cheekbones fame) hosted the most recent episode of the US topical comedy show Saturday Night Live and one skit involved his co-host, Renée Rapp, and SNL cast member Bowen Yang describing him as “so babygirl”, to Elordi’s comic confusion. If Elordi is babygirl, I suppose it means attractive? It’s a bit more complicated than that. There is a conventional usage that does mean cute, but also slightly naive: “A man who is very cutesy in a slightly submissive way,” says Rolling Stone. Other classic “so babygirl” candidates include Harry Styles and the South Korean superstar Jimin. Isn’t that a bit …
