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.

Manny looks extra crisp here, I think she’s got on more makeup or something. Anyway, the brows are particularly bangin and she wears a low bun with her Spirit Squad uniform.

Manny doesn’t get much screen time in this episode. First, we see her in the distance here, and she is wearing these pants that would have been absolutely unacceptable in 2004 and no one can convince me otherwise. These aren’t capris – these are FLOOD PANTS and they are an abomination in this context. Next outfit is.. ohhh this is when she’s already shunning Spinner I think. She’s got sleek straightened hair, these 1960s gogo looking earrings, and a lace up halter.

Manny is glad to be the one not suffering sexual consequences for once. First she’s wearing this awesome pink velour track suit, low as it can go, with hoop earrings. Then she’s in this cute Asian-inspired top while she screams gonorrhea. We also get to see her in a couple of costumes from the play. I wish they’d gone ahead and made a special episode where they showed the play in full!

Manny’s in the play because “she’s gonna be an actress” and everything. She wears a tight tank with a rainbow on it, hoop earrings, low rise jeans, and a petticoat for rehearsal. She’s trying to get through to Emma with suggesting a cozy girls’ night, but Emma wants other stuff.

WOW, tons of Manny today, and she is SO stylish I couldn’t stop screenshotting. We have an awesome color palette form her this episode – it’s a valentine’s day episode so we get red, pink, yellow, and orange.

The first outfit is this kinda athleisure-lululemon-looking zip-up top with a yellow cami underneath. This top matches perfectly to her bright ass pink fedora. It’s so offensive, I love it. She’s wearing a ponytail with what I call “face-framing tendrils” left out. We also see her low-rise jeans and pink plastic watch.

Then, she’s in… this is almost like a track suit, but it’s got a skirt with it. It’s a super weird athletic looking set without actually being athletic-appropriate. It’s a nice creamy orange color and she wears a pink cami under it. Her hair pulled half back this time, but the face-framing tendrils persevere. She is showing Chester around and falls in love pretty instantly.

Next, we see her looking super flirtatious on the TV announcements at school, wearing a short sleeve track jacket in red. Are y’all liking this straight hair? I guess I like Manny’s hair in all its forms tbh.

I for some reason really like this next outfit. Just a blue tee with hoops and a ponytail, but for some reason she really pulls this off and makes it look so cute. It says “Babe” on it, similar to those like, “90% Angel” shirts and whatnot. lol. I love it, where can I get one? Actually, I could never pull off clothing with “pet names” on it. Reminds me of that time I tried to wear a choker that said “Bitch” on it but didn’t even last the day.

Now we have this outfit here in the school assembly that we hardly get to see. It’s like, some kinda halter with grommets and a zigzag lace front. Looks pretty 70s, it’s a shame we can’t see it better.

And finally, at the dance, Manny wears a tight red halter, a matching red newsboy hat, giant heart earrings, a jean skirt, and some wedges. Ah yes and when she goes out into the cold to cry to Spinner, she adds a jean jacket. Hey wait a minute… February in Toronto has GOT to be colder than this! Oh,… maybe it’s just a sweetheart dance and not a Valentine’s dance? Eh, whatever.

Manny wears this tight tank with diagonal striping, and a short ruffly skirt. Oh yeah, check out those chunky wedge flip flops – that’s a mega 2000s moment right there!

I LOVE Manny in yellow! It’s a shame we don’t get to see that more. She wears this all yellow tracksuit, dangerously low rise as always, and a brown tee. Her hair is long, straight, and parted down the middle. She also sports a dark purple messenger bag. It’s a shame no one else wears these 2000s track suits on Degrassi! But, I didn’t have one, that’s for sure. They were kind of an edgy thing to wear, tbh.

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.

Manny’s role here in this episode is to push JT and support Toby. It’s a solemn time so she’s not wearing the most attention-grabbing attire at the moment. She has big hoops, her hair pulled half-back, and wears an Andy Warhol-lookin tee with lips all over it. Oh yeah but this tee is very cropped… or is it that her pants are VERY low? These are the lace-up jeans with no button or zipper. Dude, could any of us still wear things like this anymore? Are bodies even made this way anymore? Manny’s funeral outfit kinda cracks me up. She wears this like, idk, Ferrari/race car looking jacket? And those extremely low pants showing her lower abdomen. It’s wild looking now but I guess it was a standard sight back then. I also love her hair down and straight with that middle part! A rare look from her.
