Adam: Yeah, I'm liking the jacket, shirt, Maddow combo too. Subtle pinstripes work well here. Nicely done.
Spencer: The hair and smile say, "I'm an adorable pixie from a fantasyland full of gumdrops and sugar plums." But the suit is all business. I'm loving it.
Spencer: First things first, Adam. You had to Google the proper spelling of "Jehosaphat," didn't you? Moving on to Ms. Amanpour ... I actually don't mind the color scheme here. What I can't forgive is the shoulder pads. Look, Christiane, I know you like to spend your weekends watching old reruns of "Designing Women" on Nick-at-Nite (starring the incomparable Delta Burke), but just because those women claim to be designers doesn't mean you have to imitate their fashion sense. Seriously, shoulder pads died out with jellies, Hypercolor t-shirts, and the phrase, "Dukakis Administration." Get with the times.
Mel: I agree with both of you - this looks like she's out on some sort of '80s safari. I don't like the color scheme, either. Initially, I wanted to say something like, "Oh, Christiane, being a serious reporter doesn't mean that you can't be fashionable" but I feel like that would imply that she's wearing something frumpy because she's so bookish and busy that she can't be bothered to worry about clothes. I don't think that this is the case. This is not to imply that she isn't bookish or busy - I'm sure she's both, and I think she does a great hosting job - it does look like she's actually trying, though. She wearing clothes that fit, and that have a lot of detail - she's just choosing ones that don't work well for her. It seems as though this could be a matter of taste rather than a matter of interest. We could be in for a long ride here.
Adam: While the flower is just borderline ridiculous, I'm not going to insult Ms. Roberts by comparing this to my own take on Mike Murphy last week. Murphy mistook a gag gift that someone actually meant to give Tucker Carlson for something that could reasonably be worn out in public. This is better. I'm liking the suit, silk, and necklace too.
Adam: Booooooooring. Sorry David. The magic's gone.
Mel: I like this. I never noticed David Gregory dressed so well until we started this blog, but I have yet to find a problem. He wears well-tailored suits, and seems to know what colors work for him.
Spencer: It's nice to see that the "Bee Girl" from the Blind Melon video grew up and found a successful career in politics.
Mel: I don't think pastels work well on her, but I'll give her a pass because she's clearly still excited about the Royal Wedding, wearing a Queen Elizabeth-inspired suit. Since the bin Laden news trumped the Royal Wedding for a while, I think it's still timely. Too bad it isn't flattering.
