Happy Tuesday, or as I like to call it, “Tuesday of Answers.” Today is the day, if you are a Pretty Little Liars fan that we finally find out who Charles/A is (hopefully. I feel like I’ve heard this one before). In honor of the event, I’ve decided to count down my favorite looks from what is in my opinion, the Liars’ best dressed event. This is from the season 5 Christmas special, “How the A Stole Christmas.” I absolutely loved all of these looks and would wear any of them, so really I should make this a five way tie. But hey, lists are more fun. To see how the girls’ looks ranked, keep reading!
This is kind of ironic. This was the first look I saw from the episode in previews and it made me want to watch the episode just to see what everyone else was wearing. But when I saw what everyone else was wearing– wow, they all looked so spectacular! This should give you an idea of how this list will go since I love the look I ranked lowest. Even though the look may look tame, there are a lot of elements here that not everyone can pull off– uber pale pink lips, rhinestones around the eyes, late eighties/early nineties vibes on the dress. The way all these elements come together look fantastic on her.
This dress is so pretty. The silhouette reminds me of the one on this dress that I own. A lot of times, the costume department puts Aria in these big, poofy dresses that overwhelm her small frame. I like that they struck the right balance here by keeping the skirt knee length and the top simple so it’s not too much. It looks great on her and I love the flower petal details on the skirt.
I like how simple Hanna kept this. The dress is so elegant that it could honestly be someone’s wedding gown. I love that she went for a dress without any sparkle, but jazzed it up with a big, statement necklace. Again, because she’s so beautiful, she doesn’t have to do much and the simple hair and makeup look much more elegant than her character usually does. I am plotting how I could get this dress and where I would wear it to.
Emily looks so happy to finally be allowed out of her casual wear. Although something about the fit of the top of this dress seems off to me (maybe it needs a little more coverage?) the dress itself is beautiful. I like the subtle detailing and the sparkle really works for this type of event. The lines on this dress really elongate the frame and give the illusion of more curves. This reminds me of Herve Leger’s bandage dresses, but as an evening dress. I also love that she went a little retro with the hair.
The more I look at Spencer’s dress, the more I absolutely love it. The beading is to die for. I love that the cut gives a vague 1920/early thirties vibe. The flowiness sorta reminds me of Keira Knightley’s green dress in Atonement. It’s definitely not a dress that everyone could pull off, but Spencer has that tall, slender frame that makes it work. I also love that she finished if off with a darker, vampier lip. Spencer doesn’t wear much makeup in the show, so it’s nice to see her do something a little different.
