A note on my absolute favorite woman on that show, favorite favorite favorite:
BITCH DID SOME CRAZY SHIT IN MEXICO.
SISTER LOIS HENRICKSON.
Oh... you thought I was gonna say Nicky? No, sowwy Chloé. You are 2nd (but a very close second, obvs).
Lois IS AMAZING. I am slightly bummed out that she is..softer this season. In her demeanor and her face. She is usually so sourpussed and overly blunt that I start cracking up as soon as she is on screen.
I live for a cantankerous bitter old Southern woman (please see Shirley Maclaine in Steel Magnolias:TOP BITCH. ps, she wears a fur coat with overalls, STYLE ICON), if you must know.
I would love to interview the head costume designer at Big Love to talk Lois Looks. She wears the ugliest shit but it is weirdly AU COURANT. Lots of army green and khaki, overalls and vintage coats. (My favorite part EVER is when she gives her floral vintage coat with fur trim to Sarah and says, "I want you to have this. It was made in America and it's got good pockets.")
She's not supposed to be fashionable, like at all. But as with most things that try to be outside of style, they sometimes end up being the most stylish (see anything anyone wears IRONICALLY in Brooklyn). Obvs, tons has been written about the "Mormon chic" of the show, it must have it's own blog somewhere. (I live for it. If you have a fuckyeahmormonchic tumblr, pls leave it in the comments!) The weird modesty and utility of their outfits is really IN right now...
Case in point? Socks and platform sandals! SOOO now and SO F/W 2010 !
Bitch is ON TREND, even when she's jailed in Mexico for bird smuggling and just cut off a Mormon kingpin's arm with a machete. (I wish I was joking) (Are those Korkease?)
