Veronica Mars: Look Who’s Stalking, circa 2006
For those who didn’t watch Veronica Mars on the no longer existing UPN–for shame! This is when an irresistible Kristen Bell first hit the radar (and Amanda Seyfried played the murdered girl!). We’re still holding out for the movie. It was amazing both for its intriguing storylines and early aughts casual teen fashion: low-rider denim, baby tees and all.
In season two, the principal cancels the official school prom, so poor-little-rich/bad-boy Logan Echolls throws an Alterna-Prom (homage to Anti-Prom?) in presumably the only luxury hotel in fictional Neptune, California. Veronica looks positively lovely in a textured black strapless and wide-belted cocktail dress — especially when Logan gives his heartstring-pulling confession about how their “story was epic, you know?” *Sigh* gets us every time.
