On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Jill wears a red jacket and a horseshoe necklace. Tell me you see that her triumphant return calls E.B. White's Charlotte's Web to mind? Katherine is Wilbur, about to be slaughtered by her business colleagues for returning to her CEO position at Chancellor Industries. Jill, on the other hand, is Charlotte, weaving her arguments into pleas and insults to get her friend to reconsider. It doesn't help that Lauren's dear sister is also pretty bloodthirsty, admitting she thinks she would be perfect for the job herself. As for Tucker, he's surely Templeton the rat as many do not know his true motives and he is and always has been self-serving. This should make for an interesting storyline and more importantly, for a stylish one at that as the cobwebs are finally brushed off Jill's collection of stellar signature statement necklaces!

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears an asymmetric wrap t-shirt. Does anyone else think she needs her own cooking show like yesterday? Avery seems to be a whiz in the kitchen and it has already been proven she excels in the courtroom. Wouldn't it be fantastic if she could talk legalese while showing viewers how to make mouthwatering muffins? Even her apartment is the perfect backdrop to host a cooking show. Perhaps The Next Food Network Star is in her future but in the meantime, Genoa City's very own Giada De Laurentiis (sans the creepy smile) is whipping up some magic. That is, when she's not busy making hungry eyes at Nick.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a brown cowl neck sweater. Since she is stowed away, doesn't V.C. Andrews' Flowers in the Attic come to mind? She's not exactly in an attic but she, much like the Dollanganger children, has to hide out after an unfortunate incident. Sharon was also lavished by expensive gifts and promised a bright future when she married Victor paralleling Corrine's deceptive behavior towards her children. True, Sharon hardly has to worry about incest and her "captor" Adam is only trying to help. However, Cathy and Chris' grandmother abuses them and one can argue Ms. Newman was emotionally abused by those closest to her. Even the words "arson" and "arsenic" sound remarkably similar. Interesting, right?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a tweed blazer. Is anyone else hoping she takes after Jane Austen's Emma and tries to play matchmaker? In the novel, Mr. Martin likes Harriet but Emma thinks her friend belongs with Mr. Elton. It then turns out Mr. Elton actually likes Emma. Although Lauren has her devoted husband Michael, her friends' love-lives are a mess much like in the story as Paul, although dating Nina, likes Christine who is lusting after Danny. The Fenmore's owner, like Emma, is an intelligent woman with a great deal of free time on her hands. Perhaps playing Cupid would help pass the time as long as when she's aiming that bow and arrow that she keeps in mind her plans may go awry at any moment.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a printed blazer. Did anyone catch the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night? Lisa and Adrienne are feuding (not unlike Billy and Jack at the moment) and the Brit did not invite her former neighbor to her Villa Blanca party. Ms. Maloof then attempts to prove she is anything but aloof when she sends a hideous flower arrangement to the restaurant during the event. (It certainly did not help her case that it didn't have one pink flower let alone was the size of a small tree.) While Billy should take his cue from Adrienne and extend an olive branch to his brother, let's hope for the sake of Jack's hospital room that he goes with something a little more, uh, subtle. Something that says, "Sorry I betrayed you for my wife's sake" and not "I'm trying to apologize by sending you an entire forest."
RAG & BONE Bailey Chevron Blazer
$535.00 by Rag and Bone at Ron Herman
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a teal printed dress with a drop waist. Isn't it a shame no one in this scene is wearing cerulean blue since they are discussing a career in fashion? At least no one looks like they should be attending a hideous skirt convention. Chelsea better thank the style gods Chloe thinks her designs are good because it is obvious details of someone's fashion incompetence would not interest her. Meanwhile, it is apparent the writers love the Tag and Grab storyline as they are moving it along at a glacial pace; obviously they must know how much that thrills the viewers. As fun as it is to wonder whether Chelsea will turn into Genoa City's newest designer, many are wondering whether she has fallen down and smacked her little head against the pavement for not confronting Adam sooner. (Anyone catch The Devil Wears Prada references? I may have gone a bit overboard.)
Opening Ceremony Dropped Ruffle Dress in Teal
$450.00 by Opening Ceremony at Forward By Elyse Walker
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a black dress with an asymmetric neckline. Anyone think her resemblance to Mary Todd Lincoln is uncanny? Think about it, Nikki is Genoa City's "First Lady" given her status as President Victor's main squeeze and she was also married to Jack, a man who was shot. It is no secret Nikki has loved both Jack and Victor, bitter business rivals while Mary was courted by Abe as well as Stephan Douglas, who eventually became political rivals. (Lincoln-Douglas debates, anyone?) Lastly, Lincoln's wife is said to have suffered from severe mood swings which just so happen to resemble Nikki's behavior as of late; she seems to go from sobbing uncontrollably over the ranch to happily announcing her engagement to cattily attacking Sharon all in a matter of minutes. Here's to hoping she'll paint the Newman Ranch white once the renovations get underway.
Robert Rodriguez Slim Cashmere Dress

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a leather trim blouse. Anyone think her having a female friend is like the Breaking Amish pioneers going to New York? Both are venturing into uncharted territory but if things go sour for Chloe, at least she'll only be shunned by Chelsea. While the Amish group allegedly discovers the wonders of technology, the two new friends are busy figuring out a way to save Tag and Grab before it crashes. Better a company that burns than a group of people who choose to live life differently from how they were raised, right?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a burgundy leather jacket and an ombre scarf. Right about now, Chelsea is like a person reading Gone Girl- engrossed, confused, and trying to put all the pieces together. Of course, Chelsea is trying to decipher Adam's lies from truths and track his whereabouts while the engrossed reader is trying to figure out if the protagonist Nick killed his wife Amy. Perhaps it's time for Adam's new wife to scavenge for clues. She is sure to raise an eyebrow at what she finds just as the surprised reader can't turn the pages fast enough to see how the thrilling tale concludes.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray drape open back sweater. As she wanders around the cabin thinking she's losing her mind, one can't help but hope for a Cabin in the Woods twist of sorts. Although Sharon may feel alone and quite isolated, fingers crossed for the sake of her killer sweater that she is under some sort of observation. Too bad like most horror movie stereotypes, it looks like she will learn too late that it is never really safe to go to a cabin in the middle of the woods, now is it?
Many thanks to the show's wardrobe department for informing me that her sweater is by All Saints and that Sharon is actually wearing it backwards. How's that for a twist? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to track down the exact sweater but here is a similar one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a houndstooth jacket. Remember that time Miss Clavel had to rush little Madeline to the hospital in the middle of the night to get her appendix taken out? Phyllis, although no longer sharing the littlest orphan's hair color, may have to do the same with Jack if he doesn't get the surgery soon because it is clear that "something is not right." Who knows, maybe even his enemy Victor will visit him while he's recovery since Madeline's pesky neighbor Pepito even payed her a visit. Victor and Jack may never "break bread" together but hopefully they will reach a point where they can at least be civil.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a colorblock dress. As she worries about working with her husband, he reassures her they can work together because love conquers all. Given that the couple has not only overcome cancer, infertility, and Cane's "death" but are also raising twins and dealing with Genevieve's antics on a daily basis, Lily finally realizes she should take the job. It will be nice to see her trade in those mom jeans and applique mom jeans vest (not literally, thank goodness) for some business attire.
Thanks to reader Neelam for ID'ing this dress! She also shared the dress runs small so keep that in mind when ordering.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a black sweetheart dress. Too bad a sweetheart is exactly what she's being during this difficult time, channeling her innocent little Charlie Bucket self she never knew she had. It is time for Chelsea to stop thinking all the inconsistencies are her "Pure Imagination" and realize life with her new husband Adam isn't all sweet. Sure, he can sugarcoat his lies until he turns a nice shade of Violet Beauregarde but ending the marriage may just be her golden ticket to happiness.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a teal dress with an open back. As she unknowingly jousts with the other only member of Adam's fan club for his attention, she is left rather dejected. Chelsea needs her husband now more than ever but it just so happens that so does Sharon. Adam rides off into the sunset to be Sharon's knight in shining armor, which is ironically something he once told the blond she didn't need in her life. Especially every time Nick tried to play the role. In this tale, only time will tell who will eventually win Adam's affections.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a sweater. After surveying the Newman Ranch that she burned to the ground, it's quite obvious she decided to fight fire with fire. Literally. Sharon extinguishes all dreams of independence and revenge as she realizes the extent of her actions. Yes, the Newmans have burned her in the past but when they learn it was her that set the ranch on fire, something tells me they will be all fired up.
James Perse 'Vintage' French Terry Sweatshirt

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears an oxblood dress. Most women think "Diamonds are Forever" but she would rather have "The Spy Who Loved Me." Billy, of course, aims to please, but Victoria better hope he doesn't get caught; Jack would knock "The Living Daylights" out of his brother. Meanwhile, Victor "Live and Let Die" as he tells his children it is up to them to win the Newman Enterprises back. Perhaps in time, Jack will realize "The World is Not Enough" and come up with a new plan to bond with the Mustache.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a tweed blazer. As she jokes about her retirement, namely knitting and playing bridge, one can't help but think it's time for Mrs. C to get down to business. Katherine should take the helm of Chancellor Industries, if for no other reason than her sharp business wardrobe just waiting to be front and center. Neil may be saying hello to Jabot but viewers will be saying hello to Kay's diamonds, pearls, and closet full of pretty jackets like this one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a boatneck fitted dress. Nick "slept a summer by her side, filled her days with endless wonder," but is gone now that autumn has come. Yes, Phyllis "Dreamed a Dream" that they would "live the years together" but unfortunately, alleged attempted murder and an affair are "storms they cannot weather." And so, she is left alone and Les Miserable.
She is wearing the Generosa Dress by La Petite Robe Di Chiara Boni.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a purple velvet jacket. Perhaps her wardrobe is an indication of what kind of cake she will be enjoying on her wedding day to Victor: red velvet. And hopefully, Nikki will take viewers behind the velvet rope for the entire wedding planning process and Newman Ranch redecorating. Who knows, if she plans winter nuptials, perhaps her wedding dress may even be made of, you guessed it, velvet.
Rachel Zoe Hutton Velvet Blazer

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a burgundy dress. Who thinks she should nominate her mother-in-law to appear on that TLC show Extreme Cheapskates? With the way Genevieve was going on and on to poor Lily about how she managed to get information out of the strange brunette woman for free, you would think she hadn't just bribed her with one hundred thousand dollars only minutes beforehand. And Lily questioning whether Ms. Atkinson even had such money in the first place? Pretty priceless. Although Genevieve's not running around town cutting her own hair and wearing clothes she's had since 1998, it would make for a fascinating episode of the series just the same.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a black long sleeve top with pointelle stitch. After hearing Jack took over Newman Enterprises, being fired, learning her childhood home burning to the ground, and visiting her father in the hospital, it is safe to say she is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Victoria is giving Judith Viorst's protagonist Alexander a run for his money; it is safe to say one can certainly write an award winning children's book about her awful adventures. Although she is down on her luck now, hopefully the next ninety days for her will be wonderful, marvelous, excellent, and terrific.
*Update 10/30/12: Found the original.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray cardigan with front pockets and ribbed sleeves. First she's a kleptomaniac, then she's a pyromaniac, now she's an amnesiac. What's next, will she regress to a full-out maniac? Sharon certainly has endured her share of troubles as of late but instead of making insane decisions, she should imagine her future (with Adam). You know, one filled with rainbows, puppy dogs, and unicorns where they live happily ever after and nobody burns their glorious castle to the ground.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a tweed blazer with leather trim and black contrast panels. With Halloween around the corner, one can't help but compare Victor and Jack's unending feud to that of Freddy vs. Jason. As Katherine attempts to counsel said Nightmare in Genoa City, it becomes quite apparent that everyone is on Team Victor as even Jack even admits as much upon a visit from the ghost of his late father. It is hard to predict who will ultimately win the final showdown as only time will tell which of the two monster moguls will have the last laugh.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Heather wears a pink boucle cropped jacket. As she comes to terms with the prosecution losing the case against Phyllis, one can't help but think of unjust court case outcomes, namely the one in To Kill A Mockingbird. Tom Robinson was convicted of raping Bob Ewell's daughter Mayella although all the evidence pointed towards his innocence. Similarly, it doesn't take a Scout to see that Phyllis is hardly a mockingbird, or rather a poor innocent creature merely bringing joy to the lives of others. The new judge may have thought she wouldn't say Boo to a goose but those in her life know they would likely find more lies and secrets in her past than there were gifts in Mr. Radley's tree.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Christine wears a sheer printed blouse. Let's see a show of hands - how many think she must have accidentally left her blazer in the car? Seriously, Christine sans blazer is like breathing without oxygen. Speaking of which, she may want to take a couple of deep breaths and go to her peaceful place now that Phyllis has managed to evade jail time for trying to kill her. Will the the former editor of Restless Style ever get the punishment she deserves? Cricket better not hold her breath on that one.
