Part 2 of 2 – ‘Til incarceration do we part
So, at the “nothing fancy” event the Graysons are hosting, this happened:
Dove. Grey. Vera. Effing. Wang.
Friends, I want to know what their version of fancy looks like. I really and truly do. But let’s back it up and talk about the other guests. I need a moment to process that dress.
Conrad’s biggest problem of the day? Whatever happened to his other diamond encrusted monogrammed cufflink! (Hint: EMILY THORNE)
Somehow, he manages to pull it together with backup cufflinks.
Lookin’ good, Connie. A tux suits you.
And I can’t believe Ashley, a lady who usually knows how to dress for every possible occasion, actually considered this Tadashi Shoji frock for the wedding.
Ash, honey, if the invite doesn’t say “white party”, then there is no light in which this is okay to wear white/silver to your boyfriend’s parents fake wedding. There will be other events. Knowing this show, there will be other events next week — planned by you, actually. Is she still the Grayson party planner? Can’t remember.
Luckily, she decided in favour of this champagne coloured gem by Balenciaga:
Much better. And so much more her style. The other one was like she was dressing up as Debutante Barbie. I like Ashley’s outfits to have a hint of an edge to them and this one has got a bit of the last days of disco vibe to it. I dig it, and also her oh-so-boho braided ‘do.
Too bad her boyfriend has zero edge (no matter how hard he tries to make like Chuck Bass and take down his dad at work).
Sure he looks good in a tux. But he also looks so derpy all the time that I just can’t take him seriously. My guess is, neither can the board of Grayson Global.
There was a toss up in the staff room over who gets Best Dressed honours this week. I said Queen V, but Ann gave it to Ems for the stunning red number that had an emphasis on the cleave.
It’s hard to argue against that dress. Once again, Emily wears the hell out of that colour. She should wear revenge-y red more often.
Also? She should also stand around and plot and scheme with Nolan more often.
Sorry, they just look so good together all the time. It’s like they’re sartorial soul mates.
Not one to be outdone on colour, Nolan brings it in electric blue.
And while I appreciate Padma branching out into colour, I’m not sure how I feel about her coordinating with Nolan’s jacket in this Adriana Papell number.
Too much? Totally on brand? What do y’all think? I do know I hate the amount of fabric happening up in there. The colour looks good on her, but maybe she could have toned down the ruffles.
Can we talk about Victoria again? That dress was to die for.
VERA. EFFING. WANG.
However, she’s like a kid playing dress up with the number of pearls on her arms and neck. You can overdo it on the accessories, Victoria, and I know you know that.
Oh, speaking of pearls — what do you give Victoria as a remarriage present? A pearl handled gun, obvs.
She is the woman who has everything, after all. (PREDICTION: that gun goes off in an upcoming episode. How can it not?)
Once the groom is arrested and the guests go home, Victoria takes to her plotting balcony in silk and lace.
Some of us choose leggings as leisure wear, she chooses expensive silk nightgowns. To each her own. Just watch out for the Single White Mom who just became extra-cray when she learned WHM (her secret lover!) is TOTALLY DEAD. And she kinda thinks Vic is responsible.
And visiting Conrad in prison? Not his family. Oh no. That’s reserved for Head Evil Lady of the Initiative.
Also not dressed for the season, but she’s probably so nefarious that she doesn’t need to worry about the weather.
While some marriages are imploding (*cough* Vicki and Connie), others are just starting.
Congrats, Jack and Fauxmanda! I’m sure this will totally end well. Not one bad thing will happen to you. Right?
And finally, we were all pretty stoked to see the YKYLF staff room on the show.
Oh wait. No. My bad. That’s actually Mason Treadwell’s bulletin board of Revenge(!!!) suspects. It just looks so much like our own. A round of red yarn and sharpies for everyone!
