Whoah, Jem! That outfit is truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous - from the chunky Jersey shore highlights to the bongo shorts, this outfit is anything but glamour and glitter, fashion and fame. I’m assuming the original intention for the ‘do was Gwen Stefani inspired, but with an apparent overdose of Aquanet, it looks like it fell off the wagon at some point and transformed into an Amy Winehouse type of mess. Although the hive is not nearly as dramatic as say, the Bride of Frankenstein’s, the outfit as a whole is about as dramatic - knocking on costume territory. In fact, she looks like someone from Minnesota whose only exposure to South Florida was the interior of a Miami Subs and hours of Miami Vice (Don Johnson, not Colin Farrell), who decided that for Halloween, they’d dress as someone from Miami.
I got to give her some credit, however, for rocking that pose and looking – despite the outfit – quite pretty…even if it’s in front of a trash can, a dust pan, and a broom.
