I must say the rookies have gotten much better at dressing. Getting away from the B10 girls, who always dressed so frumpy, has really helped in that regard.

I wasn't feeling the after Easter black from Brown, Mitchell, and Williams. Brown was also showing a little more leg than was probably appropriate for this setting.

The pantsuits from Canada and Wilson were a nice change of pace. We don't get that too often from draftees.

DeShields and Stevens both went with suits. Diamond's was more daring than Stevens' fairly conservative look.

Billings moonlights as a model and it showed. She had the most spring-y color and the bare shoulders is a great look for her.

Nurse's white dress was forgettable. Nice shoes, though.

Vivians was on the edge of doing too much, but in a good way.


I'd go Billings as best and Brown or Mitchell as worst

I keep forgetting that pilight is the board’s fashion guru.

The makeup is what struck me. You can tell most of the players have never had this level of professional makeup before, and some aren’t that comfortable in it. Vivians, on the other hand, lives for the glam life. Billings too.

Billngs, Vivians, and Williams were all stunning. Everyone else looked pretty good too imo, I'm not a fashion expert but...

I loved Billings dress but Canada was the best dressed for me if you like modern, sleek fashion. Very LA and the cutouts were great.

Gabby's makeup and hair were awesome. [It took me a second look to recognize her] But the clunky sideways straps on the dress didn't do it for me.

I voted for ViVi

VV looked like she was in drag or going to prom, way over the top for me, sorry folks. Wilson looked like she was wearing her satin Easter bunny outfit with cutouts or PJs

The SI pics are better than last year's closeups that accentuated Gray's mustache.

Are you sure you aren’t talking about Gabby? Vivians looks like she belongs on the red carpet... got her nails did and everything.



Vivians looks like she just told Beyoncé to take several seats.

Wat has Gabby got to do with my opinion on fashion? I am not into sparkle queens but she would make a great Christmas cracker.

ViVi was totally glamorous but I liked A'ja's pant suit as well. Kudos to anyone that tall who can pull off a pant suit and high heels.

Sexy Lexie loves to show off that gorgeous body and legs and why not. Whew! Someone throw some ice on me...

Fashion-wise have to go with Gabby and Victoria too.

My favorites were Vivians and Billings. Both looked A+.

My least favorites were Stevens and Deshields. Pant suits can look great, but I thought both slightly missed the mark.

I liked Billings, Wilson and Canada.
Nurse was appropriate in white as a Nurse.
I actually liked Gabby Williams as well. Of course I am partial to solid colors.
Most of the others looked pretty good, but the worst I thought was Stevens who looked like a cross between an Eggplant and Gumby. Not a good look for her.

Viviana and Williams shocked me with how gorgeous they were dressed up. I was most impressed with Lexie Brown. Her responses were so revealing and smartly worded. We rewinded it to make our young ones watch a 2nd time.
