Forget Sonny, Carly's True Love Is Ugly Fashion
Laura Wright seems to be a talented actress, and she's a lovely-looking woman with fantastic hair. So she must have perpetrated some unspeakable evil on the wardrobe department at General Hospital, because those bitches hate her. Hate. Her. There is no other explanation for her wardrobe on the show. She should file a lawsuit for intentional infliction of bad fashion. She would have no shortage of evidence. The other day she added this baggy...thing to the bunch:
No, she's not pregnant. And that was just the latest in a long line of unflattering, ill-fitting tops of late.
We've considered even adding a separate post label for "Carly's Ugly Tops," because they are as much a consistent part of GH as the mob storylines. Okay, that's a lie, because nothing is as consistently a part of GH as the mob storylines. But Carly's ugly tops have seen more screentime than Dr. Patrick Drake, Tracy Quartermaine, and all the Scorpios combined, which is a crime. Let's review:
Laura Wright is a tall, thin woman. How bad a stylist do you have to be not to be able to dress her? Have the writers taken over the wardrobe department? I suppose if you think that mobsters are heroes you'd think that a woman with that body should wear tents. It's all starting to make sense, this bizarro world they've got going on behind the scenes at GH.
(Footnote: How can I put this delicately . . . why do they send her out on national TV without a good bra? Or just any old one at all? I'm telling you, Laura Wright better watch out because these wenches are out to ruin her.)
And because the powers that be at GH like nothing better than repetitive sexism, the men on this show are almost always dressed immaculately. Jax looks like he walked off a GQ cover every day. With the exception of the sweater vest incident, Patrick is the picture of casual hotness. Other than Sonny's abuse of a tracksuit, I can't recall any of the GH men's ensembles making me gasp in horror. Sure, Jason's been wearing the same t-shirt and leather jacket since 1998, but he's been wearing the same facial expression since then too so it's kind of like a theme.
