Last night, on the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney were inadvertent Bobbsey twins when they both wore white jeans, loose coral tops, gold belts, and gold jewelry. Awk-ward! Or cu-ute! Depends on who you ask.
G and T found the humor in their matchy-matchy outfits, and despite Gretchen realizing the fashion faux pas while still at her house, she didn't feel the need to change. Good for her. I, personally, would have shimmied into my backup outfit were I in this predicament (and were I to have such a thing as backup outfits), but different strokes, I guess.
Now, let's pull an Us Weekly and ask: Who wore it best?
I'm just going to cut to the chase here and say Tamra did. While I'm loving the summery whites and corals both girls are wearing, Gretchen's look is veering a little too close into Sandy from Grease territory. The tight capris. The platform heels with the tight capris. The bouncy short hairdo (which I actually do prefer to her long locks). I feel like she's a stone's throw away from approaching Danny Zuko and twisting out a cigarette with her toe.
Tamra's outfit on the other hand is more ... modern. And I think the decision to go with casual wedges instead of stilettos was a good one, being that they were at a garden party -- er, sorry, clambake. Also, pulling her long "hair" back into a low, loose pony was a nice touch for the occasion.
So, sorry, Gretchen. It was a valiant effort. And coral is a lovely color on you. But when faced with a regular skinny jean versus a capri skinny jean, I'm always going to go with the former. But that's just me.
Whose look do you like best?
