The bold and the beautiful has one of the most vocal fandoms of any soap. Fans are never afraid to denounce the show in any way they feel the writers are missing out on. For some time, fans have been calling to question the realism of the storylines and costumes. Now fans think Steffy’s widow’s wardrobe is unrealistic.
Why Steffy was absent from action
Steffy had been mourning for a long time, thanks to Sheila Carter. Every time Sheila goes somewhere, bodies usually drop like flies. The villain has proven to be very insane and will kill anyone who gets in her way.
Steffy found this out the hard way when she and Sheila bumped into each other over Finn. Their argument ended fatally when Sheila accidentally shot Finn (or so we thought) and sent Steffy to the hospital with fatal wounds. Steffy was in a coma for a while and when she woke up she found out that her husband hadn’t made it.
Steffy was having a hard time coming to terms with Finn’s death and decided to take some time to mourn in peace. She flew to Monte Carlo with her children and embarked on a soul quest in hopes it would make her feel better.
Fans don’t buy Steffy’s widow’s wardrobe
Steffy has always been a fashion person and often caters to looks. However, fans noticed an inconsistency between the show and the real world, and it all boils down to Steffy’s widow’s wardrobe.
Although Steffy hasn’t been around much lately, she still has quite a few gigs, and she always looks so put together, and fans have a problem with that. Users argued that anyone who went through so many traumatic events probably wouldn’t look as good as Steffy in real life.
Responding to a tweet about Steffy’s condition, a fan said she was dressed like she was in “depression rehab.” Another fan hilariously responded to the comments, saying, “At least it’s black.”
Another called the wardrobe “ridiculous” and said a woman mourning the loss of her husband would probably not walk around in designer clothes with perfect hair and makeup. Other fans chimed in, saying it would be more realistic for her to be in sweatpants and no makeup.
Some of the fans defended the choice of clothes and applauded the costume department for the outfits. One fan justified the wardrobe by saying: “Sometimes when we’re not feeling good emotionally, we dress and put on makeup to make ourselves feel better. Self-care is important.”
Other times, “B&B” has been criticized for its costume choices
Since the B&B Storylines are usually set in an haute couture universe, characters are expected to match through their wardrobes. However, as fans have noted, B&B has come up short and her costumes make it hard to believe that any of the characters work in the luxury fashion industry, according to fans.
Speaking to SheKnows, Birgit Muller revealed that many of the outfits on the show are off the racks from ordinary department stores. Muller noted that Steffy often wears department store outfits, citing Macy’s as one of the stores where the show gets its clothes.
TIED TOGETHER: “The Young and the Restless” has much better costumes than “The Bold and the Beautiful”, according to fans.
