As I said, we've got some bad, and we've got some notoriously ugly.
And we start, where else, but with a Baldwin brother...
William van der Baldwin's character and his fashion choices just scream sleazeball. That, and check out his dress shirt - wrinkled, plain and simply uninspired. Chivy really doesn't understand High Society if she thinks this guy is her ticket.
In the previous "Good" post, Lily was the obvious MVP. So why do I have a picture of her in the "Bad and the ugly" column? Chivy!
I blame you, Chivy, and your poseur Blair/Serena/Gossip Girl world of bronze outfits! It's not that it's bad - frankly, you look amazing - it's just that it's uninspired. We've seen the bronze before, sweetheart. Show me you can rock a bronze raincoat and then I'll be happy. And Lily? You seriously look like you weigh 57 pounds in that super oversized top. Next time get a size down or take it to one of the tailors you no doubt have on speedial.
"Matt, I changed out of the gold outfit just for you - is this better?"
Sorry lady, it's just "blah" boring and you went Full Vanessa with the necklaces. Notice I said "necklaces" with a plural. Next time, just pick one from the jewelery box.
Like Lily, Chuck's also making an appearance in the "bad and the ugly" column due to his color mismatch.
A red tie and a purple handkerchief? Come on Chuck, that's a classic Lonely Boy suit-wearing error, not one you'd make!
And here we have an overdose of the color red. And not just red but a dull red.
If you're gonna wear a head-to-toe red jacket - at least make it flashy and hope people think you have some chutzpah. Otherwise, red is not the new black. And this is coming from a ginger YKYLF staff writer. I'm experienced.
Ok I must be in channeling my inner Simon Cowell because I am being tough today.
Here we have a perfectly fine, but incredibly boring looking Nate. Honestly, it could go either way, but it's just that his outfits are pretty much clones of each other. That and his dress shirt looks like a picnic table cloth.
But compared to his former employee (and the future Gossip Girl?), Nate is downright dapper.
Honey, what? The drabbest of colours, mismatched knits and, quite frankly, a sloppy looking knit mini. We do appreciate you wearing tights though. It's just too bad that shlumpy cardi is bedazzled all to hell.
p.s. Serena? We're sending you a comb for your birthday. Please learn how to use it.
Serena almost gets it right at the party in CeCe's honor (how many parties du jour will be in the name of CeCe? Place your bets now). But she too went for jewelry in the key of Vanessa.
Do you know how I know Lola is a member of this family? She doesn't comb her hair for parties either. I'm going to forgive her on the unflattering dress and lack of any jewelry. She's new to the UES lifestyle. But that forgiveness only goes so far...step it up, sister.
In fashion there will always be the good, the bad and the ugly - but the really ugly? Oh, that would be the catering bill.
That's a year's salary for some folks. Good work Chivy, you're learning how to live in serious Rhodes style.
Yeah, that's the face I'd make too.
Until next time fellow UES'ers...
