On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a silk blouse. Anyone else think she's resembling Leann Rimes? These days, Chelsea is a few drinks short of the singer's disastrous "How Do I Live" performance on The X Factor. Speaking of which, it doesn't hurt that the song pretty much sums up the brunette's feelings for her estranged husband. The lyrics ask, "If I had to live without you, what kind of life would that be?" Gloria, Jeffrey, and Anita would helpfully point out she would live a poor one. You know, since Adam "would take away everything real in [her] life." As Rimes croons, "Don't you know that you're everything," one can't help but think that yes, Adam is everything. "Her heart, her world, her soul." Sharon's, that is. Hope there was a prenup between Chelsea and Adam although who knows if this time, Sharon will get around to burning it.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a multi-striped sweater. Her interactions with everyone in the Newman family lately is about as cringe-worthy as the Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta holiday music video "I Think You Might Like It." Sharon's apology, much like the Grease co-stars' reunion, was highly anticipated yet extremely disappointing. And "although here comes that magic/That spell of Christmas Eve/There's nothing you can do" to stop either train wreck from happening. And in both cases, the intended audiences were not very receptive. Perhaps if Sharon had crashed the party with a classic convertible full of gifts things may have gone better for her. Just so long as she didn't break out into an awkward dance routine in the middle of some field for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a gold and black metallic stripe top. You know that little televised singing competition in which judges have to blindly listen to The Voice before judging a songbook by its cover? Well that methodology would come in handy here as Lauren and Michael seem to be embarrassingly oblivious to Fen and his fiendish ways. While missing opportunities to coach their son on how to be a nice person, the Baldwins don't seem to Cee Lo and behold how badly Fen is tormenting Jamie "Daly" in what can only be considered a "knockout round." Who knows which of the boys will eventually pull a Cassidy Pope and win the whole thing but as Christina Aguilera would belt, "So thanks for making me a fighter."
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a khaki fitted drape dress. Isn't it about time somebody give her a book deal? As the former editor of Restless Style, Phyllis can certainly write and there is no doubt she has an interesting story or two to tell. While a book from her wouldn't exactly be the badge of courage err honor it is to one of Bravo's Real Housewives like the Countess LuAnn or Princess Carole, she would definitely be the talk of the town. And if Phyllis would be worried about the wrath of the great and powerful Victor Newman, perhaps pulling a Princess Diana and finding her own Andrew Morton to secretly write her biography would do the trick. Hushed interviews make for a book chalk full of juicy tidbits. And let's face it, explosive sales would mean she would finally have enough time to learn how to use Google. Consequently, she would stop accidentally trying to impress future executive assistants.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a blue tweed jacket. She's so dolled up for a simple lunch with Nikki, one could easily believe she's on her way to the Kardashian Christmas card photo shoot. Poor Nikki turns as white as this year's "white party" theme when she recounts recent events to Katherine. While only time will tell if the Newmans will eventually grow to tolerate Sharon the way the Kardashians did with Scott, one can't help but feel as if Nikki would like nothing more than to photo-shop the bipolar blond out of her life for good. It's a shame this whole time Sharon won't stop begging for mercy.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a trim sweater. The fact that she's choosing to work on her marriage to Billy instead of running to Victor is about as surprising as LA Reid's departure from The X Factor. In other words, hardly worth an eyebrow raise. Of course, there were obvious signs in both cases; from the beginning it was clear the Demi/Britney/Khloe demographic would do better with somebody like Bieber as a judge (although nobody's getting their hopes up) while Victor has been trying to break up "Villy" since day one. Now LA can finally grab some downtime in LA while the Abbots are off to rekindle their romance in Jamaica. That being said, Victoria may want to trade in her sweaters for some sunscreen.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a blue satin blouse. As much as brothers Nick and Adam despise one another, they are growing more similar by the day. While Chelsea's husband is now the one busy vacillating between two women, her brother-in-law has taken it upon himself to disappoint dear old daddy when it comes to the family business. Another thing the two Newman men have in common? Protecting Sharon. Why don't they just go ahead and build a statue of her in the middle of town and get it over with already? That way, Chelsea can go back to her criminal roots and engage in some destruction of property. Or better yet, she can pull a Sharon and either burn it to the ground or steal it altogether. Hey, whatever works.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a camel v-neck sweater. Gwen Stefani, Vogue's January cover girl, opens up in the issue saying she feels guilty about being a working mom. Sharon, a fellow blond, has plenty of reasons to feel guilty as well. Yes, she was a working mother at one point too when she was busy running Victor's company into the ground but now, a certain fire is likely the thing causing her many sleepless nights. Since Restless Style seems to be tanking, Sharon may not be getting her magazine cover a la Gwen but in the end, taking responsibility for her wrongdoing is probably better left out of any publication. At least that's what any decent lawyer would advise...
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a v neck cardigan. As she goes along with Devon's plan to make their office a more casual atmosphere (why oh why?) one can't help but think of Norma Rae's plight. True, Lily and Co aren't exactly experiencing Dickensian working conditions but doesn't their dilemma also revolve around textiles? Then again, convincing Neil to loosen his tie every so often does what, exactly? Besides making him look a bit sloppy and unkempt, of course. Just because Lily can make "casual chic " look so effortless doesn't mean the rest of her colleagues can. Think of all those gifted ties in Genoa City this holiday season that will sadly remain unworn if this casual work environment becomes an actual "thing." Way to be a Fashion Grinch, Devon.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Summer wears a hooded toggle coat. She attempts to seek comfort from her father and Avery after an awkward run-in with Chelsea and Adam. The only problem is that in the process of helping, Nick indirectly points out that Summer deserves a place on the TLC show Freaky Eaters. Sure, she's not addicted to maple syrup, corn starch, or tartar sauce but pizza with pepperoni pieces that cannot touch? Pretty bizarre. Then again, considering she comes from a family in which her father is dating her aunt, her mother attempted to run over two people, and her grandfather married her ex-stepmother not once but twice, being a picky eater is a pretty normal problem in comparison, huh?
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a red bodycon long sleeve dress. Remember when Pippa Middleton wrote her party planning book "Celebrate" and critics slammed it by saying most of the tips were obvious? Well, enter parody Twitter account @pippatips with gems like, "Make lunchtimes more interesting by buying some food and eating it with your mouth" and "Do you like cake? Simply make one with the right ingredients or buy one ready made and eat it." Now if Avery can whip up a delicious meal in a thousand dollar dress, who says the Duchess of Cambridge's sister can't give Thomas Paine a run for his money with her book of common sense and then spoof herself in an editorial?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a gold sequin dress. As she celebrates the holidays bathed in a golden glow, one can't help but think of the Golden Globe nominations being announced today. Nikki knows Victor is "Breaking Bad" by inviting Adam and Chelsea to their "Homeland" but instead of being "Les Miserables", they turn the housewarming party into the "Best Exotic Marigold" evening imaginable. Meanwhile, "Downton Abbey" sends her bartender boyfriend Carmine over as a little surprise although thankfully, he does manage to keep his "Silver Linings Playbook" in check. Then Sharon crashes the "Moonrise Kingdom", there is a "Rise of the (Newman) Guardians", and you just know at that moment Nick wishes he was "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen." Pretty "Brave" of Sharon to attempt to make amends but she should know better than to think she can reason with "The Intouchables" during such "A Royal Affair. "
