So while there’s hiding from the law and some teens hot on the case of who killed Derek, everyone else is kind of living their lives like they have no idea anything is going on. Their obliviousness is probably how Sutton and Emma pulled off the switch for so long. Of course, while (almost) everyone is busy cheering on Laurel’s budding music career, I’m sure it’s no coincidence that Cordelia Annie Rebecca is the driving force behind it.

The blouse doesn’t appear to be super flattering. Or maybe it’s a dress. I don’t know. I’m just happy to see her in a bold colour. I’m also blown away by her hair. The desert must do wonders for a girl’s hair, because just about everyone has perfect hair.

 

I’m pretty sure she has nefarious, or at the very least, slightly devious reasons for befriending Kristen. But before she plays her hand and ruins Kristen’s happy family, I hope she teaches her that grown ups don’t need to look like Soccer Moms.

The blazer and white shirt are possibly the hippest thing Kristen has worn all season, but next to Rebecca in her bitchin’ leather jacket? Well, she looks like she carpooled the entire band over in her mini-van and offered them juice boxes on the way.

 

Her other outfit of the episode also screamed, “I’m sorry! I can’t help but make you look frumpy!”

I think she tried to jazz it up when she tried to confront Ted on his lies (she needs to push a little bit harder on that), but ended up looking like she had a mild case of disco fever.

Kristen needs to step it up and start to demand some respect if she’s ever going to make our list of best dressed moms. Because I know they have decent shops in that city. Sutton can fill a closet from whatever stores are in town and Rebecca can dress like she’s all class for a lunch with two meddling kids? Then so can you.

Seriously Kristen? Look how easy that is. A nice dress, some statement jewlery and hair so nice it defies physics.

 

I’d almost suggest taking lessons from your daughters, but Laurel lost me this week.

Is that a bedazzled snake print cardigan? Because Laurel, if it is, I’m seriously considering demoting you from your coveted spot of Best Dressed Teen at Arroyo. I’m only going to give you a pass because you’re writing angry songs about boyfriends and I really do see you as the next adorable country crossover sensation. I know you want to be more Kelly Clarkson than Taylor Swift, but honey? You’re all Swifty to me.

 

Especially with your pretty blonde hair and kind of adorbs lace top.

You’re totally going to make a Jonas brother cry someday. For now, it’s all about making poor Justin cry.

He really should have seen it coming though. I mean, you’re in a band with Jude Law. And you dress cute for recording a demo tape, when only your mom and your manager, who is possibly shifty and going to ruin your family are the only people watching.

Also, Jude Law totally knows how to dress himself. Do you see how that shirt fits him? How he’s going for the “I’m in a band, I don’t care if you think I’m cool” look? Well compare that to Justin.

Everybody boring in Gap. Maybe he could add a blazer and join the drug dealing frat brothers.

That’s not what I was thinking when I suggested a blazer. You could at least find a fitted white t-shirt to go with it. Had you done that, Laurel might have regretted making kissy faces at Jude Law and been hot for you instead (because fitted white t-shirts on well-built dude are kind of on par with kryptonite). Instead, you look schlubby and you got dumped over Chinese. And pretty soon you’re going to be hearing her sing breakup songs about you on the radio.

Yeah, I know. I bet that’s how the Jonas and the Taylor Lautner felt too.
