I’ve got pages of Paige to share today (ha)! First she’s in a sky blue, which has got to be one of her best colors! Also she’s got very matte makeup, almost grunge-like eyeshadow, and nice skinny 2000s eyebrows. Oh yeah, and when she realizes Snake might have seen her out in public with Mr. O, she hurriedly dons this pink cowboy hat which I LOVE! Then she’s in class in a dusty pink top which has some ruffle detail. Actually, this might be better describes as a “tunic” because this thing is long, going down past her hips. I hated that era of clothing, the whole “is this a shirt of a dress?” thing. Ugh. She also wears a messenger bag and flare jeans. And this is the outfit that she wears while fighting Manny. I hate that such an iconic moment lasted like 7 seconds and was never spoken of again. When Paige stalks Mr. O and finds his apartment, she wears a burgundy 3/4 sleeve graphic tee. We get a work uniform moment as well… and finally, a peachy paisley blouse with cuffed flare jeans and stilettos.

Queen of Hearts

Ya know, I always think of Queen of Hearts as the Ellie + Alex episode, but it’s also quite big on Paige. I love how she looks in S4 – her hair, her grungy eye makeup. First she wears this tiny tee with a chihuahua on it. It looks like its name is “Chichi” lol. Next she’s at the movies with Matt. She wears casual flare cargo khakis, and ulta-low yellow cowl neck over a white shirt, and a random pink cowboy hat, which I kinda love. But in all actuality this outfit is pretty much awful. I mean, look at the size of those pockets on the khakis. Was she using those pants to smuggle food into the theatre? I guess, cuz ain’t nothing fitting into that mini purse. The next outfit, I love. It’s this gorgeous white off-shoulder top with flowers on it. Also, low rise janes and some kinda statement belt as per the 2000s requirements. And lastly, Paige wears her brown, scratchy work uniform and sneaks in a call on her flip phone.

Manny is hilarious in this episode. She kind of “joins the band” per Spinner’s request. I don’t really know why she goes along with it all so smugly, I mean it’s kind of out of character for her. Buuuut maybe she just wants to be petty and annoy Craig and Ashley. Or maybe Spinner’s piss poor attitude rubbed off on her. Anyway, her style is POPPIN’ today. First is this cropped halter shirt with a pink and blue floral print on it, paired with suuuuuper low rise jeans. I’m really starting to look back at the 2000s with disgust. Not because I hate the style, but because of these unrealistic body expectations. The NEXT outfit is one of my favorites!! An orange cowboy hat with a diagonally-striped orange tube top and jean skirt. Are we SERIOUS!? I mean, Manny’s style was really out there. Realistically, no one would be wearing this to school. It’s a fantasy but I love it. Manny’s style at this point is like, things you’d see in a music video. Not the halls of school. And the final fit is more PINK – this big pink newsboy hat and a pink tracksuit. LOVE.

So as we ALL know, Billy Ray Cyrus made an appearance on Degrassi for some unknown and wonderful reason. He plays the role of the cowboy limo driver. He wears bootcut jeans, cowboy boots, a Joey Jeremiah-esque tux t-shirt, and a leather jacket with tons of fringe. Oh and let’s not forget the cowboy hat. “Watch yer dress!”
