Here’s where I round up the random and group photos from the episode. First are a couple shots of Spirit Squad, in their white tennies and Degrassi attire. Next is a group shot in the hallway featuring many sets of belted, low-rise jeans. Then is Kevin Smith’s insufferable music guy acting coked out in a leather jacket. This next shot, just a random girl at the dance – tell me that’s not Rochelle. “Hey Rochelle, wanna have lunch?” Holly J asks this girl in the hallway much later on and she smiles all big. This girl looks like Rochelle. Maybe there’s too much time between this episode and that future one, but I’m going to try to keep an eye out. And finally is an overhead shot at the dance, of these little youngsters enjoying themselves.

West End Girls being the Manny vs. Paige episode means we get a good helping of Paige. And Paige in pink is just me favorite! First she’s seen at Spirit Squad, forgetting the dance routine. Notice her super grunge-looking eye makeup. I guess it’s better likened to raccoon eyes given the era though. Next she’s seen at the store Pretty Pretty Pretty or whatever, trying on that gorgeous dress with her big black bra straps hanging out. I’ll say it again, this cropped length is a really weird pairing with a dropped waist. Next we see her with Matt wearing a very Paige-y top, silver jewelry, and frosty makeup. And even with a broken leg, Paige won’t miss that dance. She clomps on in, corsage in her boot, raging on pain killers. She wears a cute pink furry bolero with the dress, and one strappy pink heel.

This is an interesting little episode, where Paige really starts to wear Manny down, making her life miserable. Manny tries her best to fight back but I think Paige holds more power here. I wish this saga could have been drug out a little bit. Oh well! First Manny is seen in Spirit Squad practice. Then she’s wearing a matchy-matchy velour set over a tube top with those square hoop earrings. And that pink plastic watch still, lol. She’s also still wearing her VEGAS necklace, which I still love. And unfortunately she has picked the same dress as Paige for the dance. I love it – pink, ruched, and super ruffly strapless with a dropped waist. However, the length of the dress is kinda weird, cutting off at like mid-calf, which doesn’t seem like something someone would wear during this period. Next we return to school and see the Spirit Squad uniform on her, and later those famous low-rise jeans paired with a red athletic-inspired top. Her hair looks amazing here btw. Next… Manny is being tortured in the mascot outfit. And then she returns to the dress store – I guess Paige chased her out last time – and tries on a funeral ensemble. Ultimately, though, she decides on the pink because she broke Paige’s leg and decided she deserved a treat. That’s where you can see the odd length of the dress – it kinda makes her legs look ultra-short. The shoes are odd too, like, kitten pumps. Aaand, uh oh – Paige shows up at the dance, and they have the same dress! So, Paige rips Manny’s off, and here is her underwear. Never seen a teenage girl wear underwear like this before. Finally, she’s in the locker room in a hoodie. We don’t really see Manny in hoodies, do we?

Although Hazel doesn’t really have a big part in this episode, it IS one of her better moments throughout the show. First she wears this New York zip up jacket with her cross body bag, and she’s kinda trying to feed Manny tips on how to reconcile with Paige. Then she’s seen in Pretty Pretty Pretty, isn’t that the name of the store? And I don’t know if she’s trying dresses on, or if she’s really wearing this halter with her bra straps hanging out. Then she’s seen in her Spirit Squad uniform, and finally, I don’t know why she wears all black to the dance. Wonder if Paige “made” her. Also would like to take a moment for Hazel’s eyebrow game. Skinny and sharp, I always love when the brows are so skinny you can see the brow muscle underneath, you know what I mean? Oh yeah and this is where Hazel TELLS PAIGE OFF! Just this once. And it’s great.

We get to spend some more time today with sweet Early Darcy. First she’s here in Spirit Squad wearing a spaghetti strap tank, then she’s also seen in her uniform. Then she’s in a green tee that shows us a little secret… Darcy is a Taurus. I can totally see it. And finally at the dance, she wears a strapless lacy dress with a pearl necklace.

Umm Chantay is mostly standing behind people the whole episode, but here she is, in braids and her Spirit Squad uniform.

Yippee, we enter the year 2005 with a new episode and Alex! She’s wearing her usual, a white tank with hoop earrings, casual khakis, and her bra straps hangin out. Then she classes it up a bit, with her hair clipped up and a brown tee. It’s a totally different look. She’s also sporting her cross-body bag and tucks her shades into her shirt just like Paige does. Probably because your hair will get stuck in the nose piece if you wear them on top of your head.

Manny is wearing some low-hanging pants and a zip up hoodie for Spirit Squad practice. And then, this hairstyle she wears while she’s comforting Emma outside is one of my favorites. It’s parted down the middle, clipped at the sides, and it’s just, BIG. I have a thing for big hair. Probably because I don’t have it myself. Manny’s outfit is a powder blue track suit over an orange athletic tee with some white tennies. Oh yeah, and minor detail, she gets into a huge fight with Paige! Love it. She was definitely better dressed for fighting. At Emma’s she ices her face in a yellow robe. And when she sees Chester, who by the way she already dumped, she’s mortified because she’s “disfigured”. I always thought it was so weird that people are embarrassed about temporary things out of their control. Like “oh sorry for these mosquito bites on my legs” or “sorry for this black eye”… umm… you’re forgiven? Manny quickly ties up her oversized tie-dying shirt to reveal super short shorts and some very tall wedge flip flops. Those shoes are freakin amazing. Her last outfit is her – I think this is a Ferrari jacket? I don’t remember.

Hazel is seen first in her Spirit Squad uniform, and then I love the look on her face when she’s grilling Paige about Mr. O. She wears her hair down and straight with an orangey floral top, and her brows are very waxed, as many of ours were at this time.

Darcy, too, is thirsting after Chester. First she’s in her Spirit Squad uniform, and then she’s in a super tight polo with low rise jeans. After being seen in a bathrobe, she quickly changes to a plaid pleated skirt and pinkish tee.
