S08.E18 Visual Aids: Donna May Be A Success As A Designer, But She's Still A Bozo In The Beverly Hills, 90210 Visual Aids

Honest Q: Was Eclipse a real LA restaurant in the 90s? Or did the show use some restaurant front and put up a fake sign?

So much nose-sticking where it doesn't belong from Donna and Kelly in this episode. But even with all that, the moment that most made me cringe-scowl was Donna's silent "hying" when Noah and David made up and shook hands. That's right: a Silent Hying. I will accept corrections on the spelling.

Even when dressing up ad a clown to make a kid happy, Donna is hardly covering her upper body.

I loved the wedding dress, but can’t figure out why the bridesmaids dresses were so godawful, unless they were too cheap to do alterations for characters shown for a few minutes. The puff sleeve and ill-fitting bodice situation was painful.

Seriously!  Even for the year this episode was in, 1998, those dresses are WAY outdated.  By about 12-15 years I would say.  

I wish someone would choke David and Brandon with their chain-link and double, dainty necklaces (respectively).

Not by so much, I'd say. In terms of fashion/pop culture, the 80s didn't end until 1992 and there was plenty of holdover thru 1994. 

And there were also plenty of people over 40 who kept their 80s lewks for the rest of the decade. 

So, the dresses would've been acceptable for a wedding as far as 1994 (especially a budget one), but 1998? Yeah, no.

I knew a bride who made sure that her bridesmaids had bad dresses,  so she could look good.  Suffice to say about 2 of them don't talk to the bride anymore.

Right, and this was over a year after the Bessette-Kennedy wedding (Sept. ‘96) which led to a more minimalist trend.

My friend got married in 1998 and I remember she was so excited about our dresses. They were thees long maroon numbers that were fitted on top and had an organza overlay. Very basic but I guess at the time they weren't hideous like these monsters. I think some brides really liked the idea of having a dress a gal could use again.
To be fair, I did wear that dress one other time for a holiday party.

Is Ellen Madison from unREAL? I know that would mean she hadn’t aged in 20 years, but wow is it close.
