GCB-Inspired Style: Carlene Cockburn vs. Amanda Vaughn

My new Texas-sized obsession? GCB! If you haven’t watched the hilarious new show yet, based on the book Good Christian Bitches, trust me, you’re in for a deliciously guilty Southern treat, packed with naughty humor and Dallas-tastic style (What else would you expect from Sex and the City creator Darren Star and Steel Magnolias writer Robert Harling?!).

High-school rivals (Carlene was the ugly ducking picked on by Amanda) turned grown-up rivals (Carlene’s the current queen of the GCBs, while broke Amanda has fallen on hard times)…turned fashion rivals! Which GCB speaks to your inner Dallas diva? Carlene: More is more is more! Carlene loves to pile on jewels and sparkle in living color…and lots of it. Just like her personality, there is nothing shy about Carlene’s opulent style. She’s also 4’11” (cuz that’s how God wanted her to be) so towering 6″ shoes are perfect for trying to bully Amanda who stands a foot taller – everything’s bigger in Texas!

Amanda: The reformed mean girl is just back in Dallas after her life in Santa Barbara crumbled, so her style is less about excess and more about glamorous simplicity. Nothing over-the-top! Amanda keeps it neutral and chic in form-fitting dresses that are light on the glitz and heaving on form-fitting sophistication.
