Our BABE of Season 5 is back! Okay, tbh there are many babes in S5. But I just love Emma’s era here. Her hair is bouncy; she’s out of those 90s bangs and excessive athleisure wear. First she’s in her PJs which consist of a spaghetti strap tank and PJ pants. Then she wears a white v-neck layered over a cami, with a shell necklace. Her style so interestingly conveys “yeah I’m a hottie but I also love the environment.” Maybe it’s all the earth tones. Speaking of earth tones, the next ‘fit is this sweater that ombre transitions from beige to brown, paired with brown pants. This is where she condemns Manny. But as we can see, that doesn’t last long because here they are the next day holding hands at school. Oh lord, the chest ruffles on this shirt. Not to blog but I was the QUEEN of chest ruffles in college in the late 2000s. Emma makes it boho by adding this leather tie belt to her low-rise jeans.

Okay, I’ll say it. Season 5 Emma is HOT. And yeah, this episode is partly about beauty standards, and she is made to fit into that ideal 2000s look, so I hate to praise the toxic beauty standards so much. But I don’t know, something about S5 Emma, man. She’s glowing. And speaking of glowing, next season they put some weird glow filter on the girls, so this is our last natural era. Anyway, first is a rare swimsuit moment with Emma and Manny. Emma’s suit is adorable, with yellow and pink polka dots. She also wears some oversized rainbow shades. At school, Emma continues to sport the skin-tight Lululemon, and has almost a grungy makeup look of brown smudged liner and a darker lip. At the Hot Girls Party, which looks a lot like Jimmy’s house, her hair is perfectly curled and she wears layered camis as we did back then. She also has on this miniskirt that’s kinda like khaki but with a floral print on it. But seriously, the 2000s were skimpy as hell. And in the most formulaic way. To where, if, you ain’t got it, you can’t fake it. I feel like nowadays we have options and can play up the parts of us we’re proud of.

Emma, the sexual being, is seeming extra mature and confident in this episode for some reason, even though she’s really just there as Manny’s sidekick for once. First she’s in a jean jacket and a floral cami. Then she’s still decked out in Lululemon as she helps Manny try on dresses. And for the dance, she wears a black spaghetti strap dress, which is… not very Emma, I don’t know. And her hair is.. well, it’s curled. I gotta say it does look awkwardly realistic. Though isn’t her mom a hairdresser? Where was she?

Emma is only seen for a moment here at the blood drive, telling Spike to STFU while she’s getting needled. Emma seems to be growing out those 90s bangs, and she wears a purple zip up hoodie.

Emma is all recovered from her gonorrhea, but the reputation lives on. She looks really pretty here in class wearing some layered tanks and a skirt. Chris insults her, and then outside, she really truly does look upset. She wears a khaki jacket and looks freaking exhausted. Next we get a closeup of the toes – which is here because nail polish IS fashion, right? And she wears a pink robe, then a large white shirt for tie-dying. Wait, why are we tie-dying in white? Whatever. She’s also got on khaki capris. For ninja night she wears some dark athleisure. And finally, it’s practically all-khaki-everything with this jacket, skirt, and tan shoes. The dynamic between her and Chester was interesting. I love how she was so unintimidated by him, wish we could have seen more.

Aaaand here’s Emma, the star of the show!!! Everyone open wide and show your appreciation! I actually think her acting here is subtle but you can see the transformation. She still looks dead behind the eyes but has this new smugness, this new confidence about her. First she’s wearing all-tight-everything as we did back then. Tight ponytail, tight shirt layered over another tight shirt, and tight low-rise pants. She’s also carrying her signature bag. Her costume in the play looks beautiful – that red dress with black detail! Oh yeah, and I got a shot of the bracelets. Idk if I said this already, but it would have been cool if there was like, more awareness of these bracelets and what they mean. It seems that only a small circle of ravine-dwellers are even aware of this form of communication. Next outfit is a khaki skirt, a peachy tank, and the first inkling of gonorrhea symptoms. Oh yeah, and Emma has one of those loopy ponytails! And lastly, Emma is in her PJs – man, this family really loves Old Navy – and cries REAL tears becaaaaause she thinks she has an STI.

It’s time for our BJ queeeeen, yeeessss! Ya know… Emma was experimenting. That’s normal, that should be fine, right? Idk why they had to portray it as such a morally bad decision here on the show. But, I mean, I guess her decision to experiment wasn’t coming from the right place. She was in a bad spot. But on the other hand, does it need to come from the right place?

Anyway, she sure had mastered looking dead inside these days, huh? Maybe this was just the thing she needed to bring her back to life! lol. Okay okay, let’s get on with the fashion. First she is in “semi-dress” rehearsal wearing some layered tanks. She looks super tall next to Alex and Emma, right? For all I know she’s about 5’7, so it looks like bad girls club is just super shirt. Emma’s bangs look…ok. And her hair is flat. Her clothes are extremely tight; I do remember those days. And of course, her pants are LOW. I guess this is a really good example of where Emma is in life. She’s still wearing those earthy Emma colors, and she’s still carrying the usual bag, so it’s like she’s still herself deep inside, but her style is drained of creativity. Outside she wears a jean jacket to make it a Canadian tuxedo, and sports these little flimsy headphones. Also had to show you that cell phone, wow. The final few shots are really just more boring Emma clothes, then another dress-like rehearsal, and also a little shot of that infamous bracelet. Oh yeah, the final fit with the jean skirt and the Airwalks is super cute.

I wish the bracelet thing had continued, even if in the background. Like maybe showing people wearing them. It would have been awesome to keep the legacy going too, like having Next Class kids doing the bracelet thing. Or at the very least, Esme having some on her wrists or something.

I don’t remember what Emma is talking about in this episode but I don’t think she’s in a good mood. She’s seen in this white tank, bra straps exposed, and a gemstone necklace. And hopefully she’s finally growing those bangs out.

Emma wears a tiny cami with low rise jeans and surprise surprise, a zip up hoodie. She looks especially rigid these days. Her hair is curled and the 90s bangs are still there.
