She's Certainly Guilty of Fashion Crimes
I bet when Greenlee's murder trial started you thought to yourself, "Here we go again. As long as this trial lasts, Mallory's going to be foaming at the mouth pointing out all of the staggering problems with the Pine Valley legal system, because that's what she ALWAYS does when a soap opera has a courtroom story because no soap on the air is willing to hire a fact-checker or even just an intern who can just one of the EIGHTEEN episodes of Law & Order that air daily on various networks in hopes of maybe picking up on what actually goes on in a trial".
And you would be right in thinking that to yourself, because I spent all of Friday's episode getting worked up over Liza's criminally (HA!) terrible questioning of Jake, which really just amounted to a gossip session under oath, but then, due to two incidents that I can only describe as horrifying and offensive happened and suddenly my squabbles with factual accuracy didn't seem so important anymore, not in comparison to MY SIGHT.
Greenlee's outfit was wrong on every level in terms of her storyline and basic aesthetics. It seems, I don't know...unseemly for a woman on trial for the murder of her husband to wear a red dress to court.
I've always had a fondness for wrapping hair around my elastic when I wear a ponytail. This dates back to when I was in fifth grade and obsessed with I Dream of Jeannie, spending hours to perfect the Jeannie ponytail. If Greenlee had gone all out and wrapped an enormous braid around her ponytail, she'd look less ridiculous. The ratty hair look, paired with teased hair (what the hell kind of deal did AMC get on Bump-Its and hairspray?), is good for no one, not even the lovely Rebecca Budig.
