Jenny is now going for a look that was last seen during one of the funeral scenes in the movie Heathers:
Don't get me wrong. I love Heathers. I just don't think we need to repeat some of their fashion choices.
Or wear them with hoodie
But even the Heathers knew that your skirt needs to cover your arse just a little bit. To pants or not to pants? Either Jenny is against pants or she has forgotten them at home again. I'll leave that one for you, Jenny, and the Diplomat's son to ponder.
Hmmm. (I vote pants. Or maybe a skirt that covers your crotch. Both work fine in my books).
And then we have KenDoll the Diplomat's son. Or the Nate Knock Off.
Seriously. I'm pretty sure Nate wore that sweater and button up shirt for at least a couple of episodes in the first season. Maybe they're cutting costs and digging into the Season One wardrobe to put on extras. Because they certainly did that with the Chapin Mean Girls.
Here's what I've got to say to those kids: Paul, just because Chuck Bass used to wear an ascot doesn't mean every asshole in New York can pull one off (actually Paul, I think you've got a scarf there, but it's not clear. Go big or go home dude - wear a scarf out or an ascot in, but don't waffle between the two). At least he did with some flair. Willow, Selma Blair (circa 2001, Legally Blonde) called: she would like her outfit back.
And the minions. Oh the minions. Poor creatures. They pissed somebody off this week. First off, we have The Twins in their coordinating outfits and gaudy matching necklaces.
Seriously? I'm supposed to believe that Blair would let her minions walk around with those necklaces on? Not even her high school minions got away that kind of shit. As for Amalia and Sophie:
Lacklustre at best. A little too early Blair, but without any of the style. And well, I don't even know what to do with this:
That's just mean. I know it's a play, and that they're supposed to be a dwarf boy band, but really? The bad Salt n' Peppa look makes me want to name these Dwarves Unsylish, Uncool, Unfashionable, and Sartorially-Challenged.
Unlike outfits we saw on the other minor characters this week, Maureen Vanderbilt actually did quite well for herself.
She looks the part of a politician's wife. Kudos to you Maureen. Oh, and if you look behind her, you can see a blurry image of what Serena's co-workers wear to work. Yeah. I bet everyone in that office takes Serena seriously.
Moving on to our morally sound Congressman Tripp (because your wife being kind of devious is totally a reason to shag an 18 year old girl. The press will totally understand. No really, they will. The rule is half your age plus seven, so it's cool)
You know what I've figured out? That there is a belt shortage on the island of Manhattan. Not one man on this show is seen wearing a belt. Chuck has tried to be brave by wearing suspenders, but you know he's wishing he had belts. Is it the recession that has caused the belt shortage? Or maybe the Pied Piper of Manhattan came and lured the belts away? I think I'll start a belt drive and send them to the cast of Gossip Girl.
Finally, the parents. Lily showed us how "mom jeans" should be done.
The glasses are beginning to wear thin for me, but I do love that blouse.
As for Rufus, he continues to look like a slob and make himself seem as ridiculous as possible (like I'm supposed to believe he's so clueless that he can't figure out the STD the Jenny mentions).
At least we know where Dan gets that dapper sense of style from
And that's it.
I'm kidding. Did you think I'd forget Gaga? Her appearance was a bit on the corny side of celebrity cameos. On a scale of 1-10, with Hilary Duff's appearance this season being seven (not awesome, but totally acceptable) and a one being the utter corniness of Colour Me Badd visit the Peach Pit, Gaga was a four or five. They tried with the Tisch connection. But hell, it's Gaga and she isn't pantsless, so I can deal with it.
I also loved the mental image I got of Gaga playing cards with Blair's step-father: Inconceivable! What did shock me was that Gaga was dressed more modestly than Jenny and Serena. And she had black electrical tape over her nipples. Do you know what that means? It means you need to start wearing some more fabric ladies.I'm not saying so much fabric that you need four guys with fishnets over their head to help you get around. I'm just asking that you cover your hoo-ha a little bit. That's not too much to ask for, is it?
