Finally, the costumers get to dress a candidate's wife, and not just dress Blair like she is a candidate's wife (where have we seen that ruffled shirt/cardigan combo before? Oh, right, last week). Check out Maureen in her best potential first lady gear.
Even better is seeing her in red. She matches Tripp's tie and she stands out when going up against Grandfather. I especially love that wardrobe defied convention and put a redhead in a very, very red dress. Part of me almost wants Blair to marry Nate, just so she and Maureen can go head to head.
And of course, the hero, Tripp, looking like the lost Kennedy son. Which, if his last scene with Serena was any indication, he very well could be.
Ugh. The bringers of Fallon. I will never forgive them for it. Although, their wardrobes this week may have been punishment enough. They didn’t even get a real costume change, just a switch from pajamas to – well, more pajamas, from the looks of it.
Here’s Dan in the world’s most weathered henley. I’m not sure that he didn’t steal this from a long underwear set.
Also, it looks like swine flu isn’t the only epidemic going around. It seems that Olivia caught lumberjack from Dan.
We did learn one important thing about Olivia this week. Apparently, Olivia can dress herself, she just chooses not to. Really, Olivia? You bring your A-game for Fallon, but you wear Paul Bunyan's hand-me-downs for Scrabble with your boyfriend?
