And Hannah does something funny with collars.

From Shoshanna's multiple First Lady impressions to some intriguing experimentation with collars, plus a makeover for Tad, Sunday night's episode of "Girls" gave us lots to talk about. Let's begin.

Hannah's Double Collars

Hannah's been wearing a lot of collared shirts this season and they are... never boring. Here she made the odd choice of pairing a button-down with a sweater that has a trompe l'oeil collar. Maybe it's supposed to be meta? Paired with the super tight, mismatched floral pencil skirt, though, it just looks confusing.

Obviously when Shoshanna started helping Ray campaign for community board chair, her mind when straight to: first lady. In the earlier part of this episode, she appears to be channeling Betty Ford with her retro hair styling and pleated shirtdress. Her look for the party later on is more Michelle Obama, and of course includes a matching red hair clip.

Jessa continues to be the coolest, even if her hair might have been a tad too greasy this episode. The hair definitely fits with the '90s grunge-inspired #aesthetic she's been favoring lately, though. Which is to say, I need this red slip dress, now.

Marnie's Basic Look

Marnie chose the most basic, boring outfit ever for her most recent public embarrassment of which she's completely unaware, wherein she walks into a party, agrees that she and Desi will not tell anyone about their engagement, only to later get on a microphone during Ray's victory party and announce it to everyone.

Tad's Gay Makeover

Comedy-wise, I feel like the show could have done more with Elijah giving Hannah's gay dad a makeover. A shopping montage perhaps? Maybe that would have been too much. Either, way, Tad Horvath looks just right here: Not so fashion-forward that it's unrealistic for a dad from Michigan who just came out, but fashion-forward enough that it's funny and uncomfortable for Hannah. 

Mimi Rose's Cool Sweater

I'm very into Mimi-Rose's nonchalant, half-off-the-shoulder sweater situation here. Perhaps the half-on, half-off thing is meant to represent her indecision, or lack of interest in committing to one boyfriend. Or maybe it's just a cool sweater and she has good taste. She's a tough character to figure out.
