Gilmore Girls: Rory’s 5 Best Outfits (& 5 Worst)

The fast-talking, coffee-loving Gilmore Girls possess so much more than just charm and quick wit. They’re flawlessly beautiful and effortlessly stylish, consistently pushing fashion boundaries through their seven-season run, and then maintaining those fashion standards in the long-awaited follow-up series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

Undeniably, Lorelai takes more fashion risks than her daughter. While Rory may be inspired by Lorelai’s daring fashion choices, Rory’s style is essentially more simplistic. Her priorities throughout the earlier seasons of the show were on her studies and getting into an Ivy League college, so it's understandable that she didn’t initially spend too much time and attention on her clothing. However, fans would no doubt have noticed how Rory's wardrobe transforms over the years, reflecting changes in both her personal and professional life.

Gilmore Girls offers a compelling mother/daughter duo whose bond is unique to television. In addition, we have layers of family drama, great friendships, and wacky neighbors that make the show truly unique and interesting.

One of the key ingredients is also the romance. Before there was a Team Jacob or Team Edward of Twilight fame, there was a Team Jess, Team Dean, and Team Logan--the three most important boyfriends in Rory's life.

Gilmore Girls: 10 Lorelai Gilmore Life Lessons That We Still Need Today

Gilmore Girls, a show that centered on the mother/daughter relationship between Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, had a successful run of seven seasons from 2000 to 2007. In 2016, there was a four-episode reboot told in seasons—autumn, winter, spring, and summer—called, A Year in the Life.

Those of us who grew up with Gilmore Girls recognize how special the show was, both with its depiction of the core relationships, family struggles, and strong friendships. In addition, the dialogue was quick, fun, full of literary and pop culture references. Those unfamiliar with Gilmore Girls who watched the A Year in the Life complained about the world of privilege to which both Lorelai and Rory seemed to belong and tried to understand why Gilmore Girls had been and has been popular for so long. One of those reasons is Lorelai Gilmore, a complicated/layered character. She grew from being a single teenage mother

While we all may fight with our mom's sometimes, there are some relationships that get thrown more curveballs, making them ripe with new layers of complication. 

Sometimes it's a story hinged on a feeling of inadequacy because as their child grew up they don't share their parent's values. Sometimes it's a shared journey through a winding and looped road of sobriety. Sometimes your child gets picked to be used as weapon against your alien best friend.

20 Things Lorelai And Rory Did Between Gilmore Girls And A Year In The Life

When Gilmore Girls first appeared in 2000 it was a breath of fresh air. Featuring a fast-talking mother-daughter duo who live in a postcard-perfect town full of quirky citizens, the show quickly earned legions of passionate fans. For seven seasons, the lives and loves of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore captivated viewers.

The show was created and ushered to the screen by Amy Sherman-Palladino and for six seasons her imprint was on every frame. Then in season 7, she and her husband, executive producer Dan Palladino, exited after a contract dispute. This left Gilmore Girls’ final season in the hands of others and fans never got the ending Sherman-Palladino said she had planned since the beginning. Dissatisfied by the show’s final season, fans clamored for more. While revivals, remakes, and sequels abound these days, this is exactly the kind of situation they're meant for.

10 Plot Twists That Hurt Gilmore Girls (And 10 That Saved It)

Gilmore Girls has remained popular since it’s seven original seasons ended in 2007, and has stayed relevant with it’s Netflix revival A Year In The Life. Although there are mixed opinions on that later addition, fans remember crying and laughing along with main characters Lorelai and Rory through the ups and downs of the show clearly and still love rewatching the original episodes today.

While viewers love seeing what the mother-daughter pair get into each episode, not every storyline is popular. There are some plotlines that fans downright hate, and others that most fans agree are some of the best aspects of the show. A lot happened to the characters throughout the seven season run, and there was a lot more to process after the revival.

10 New Character Additions That Hurt Gilmore Girls (And 10 That Saved It)

It’s pretty amazing that when Amy Sherman-Palladino pitched Gilmore Girls to the WB, she had little more than a sentence to sum it up. After her previous pitches had failed to elicit much reaction from the execs in the room, she threw out one final last ditch attempt: “a show about a mother and daughter, but they're more like best friends.” That is the basic premise of the series, but Gilmore Girls is so much more.

The show expertly captured complex family dynamics, with not only heart, but humor as well. Anchored by the relationships between the incredible women at its core, Gilmore Girls featured brilliant dialogue, bursting with ubiquitous pop culture references, and delivered at a breakneck pace by a fantastic cast of actors.Viewers were introduced to a flawed family that they couldn’t help but want to be a part of and a town that was

Gilmore Girls: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Rory's Relationships

When it comes to Gilmore Girls, people have a lot of opinions. This is especially true with regards to Rory Gilmore’s romantic relationships. One of the most polarizing debates in TV history is over which guy the young Gilmore should have ended up with. We see fans of the show falling into three main camps: Team Dean, Team Jess, and Team Logan. Rory had her fair share of happy moments and disasters with all three, and if you were an avid viewer of the series, you’ll undoubtedly have your own opinions on this crucial matter.

While the arguments for and against these three men in Rory’s life could go on ad nauseam, one thing we can all agree on is the fact that there were a lot of confusing moments when it came to Rory’s relationships over the course of the show. People have pointed out

TV's Hottest Triangles: Gilmore Girls — Were You Team Jess or Team Logan?
Over the course of Gilmore Girls‘ seven seasons (and four-episode revival), Rory Gilmore was hardly ever without a book — or a boyfriend.

It started with Dean Forester and that kiss in Aisle 3. Then, there was Jess Mariano, Luke’s rebellious nephew whose love of literature rivaled even Rory’s. And then, of course, there was Logan Huntzberger, a fellow Yale student who swept Rory off her feet in the dramedy’s later seasons. (Let’s all pour one out here for Naked Guy Marty, who never got a chance to be Rory’s beau, despite his best efforts.)

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?
When Kristin Chenoweth won an Emmy in 2009 for the cancelled ABC comedy “Pushing Daisies,” she joked, “I’m unemployed now, so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men'” (watch below). Chenoweth’s triumph was hardly the first time someone prevailed at the Emmys for a cancelled TV show, and that’s the one potential bright spot for “Roseanne” scene-stealers John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf following the show’s shocking cancellation. However, while Goodman and Metcalf are still in the running for Emmys, might the icky demise of “Roseanne” thanks to Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweets make the entire program toxic to voters?

There’s plenty more Midge Maisel on the way.

Emmys flashback: Amy Sherman-Palladino (‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’) was last nominated for ‘Roseanne’ 26 years ago
Amy Sherman-Palladino is best known for creating “Gilmore Girls” and her current hit show, Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” But did you know she actually got one of her first big breaks writing during the original run of “Roseanne” for six seasons (1990-1994)? Sherman-Palladino (with Jennifer Heath) earned her first and currently only Emmy nomination in 1992 for Best Comedy Writing for the episode “A Bitter Pill to Swallow.” Coming full circle, Sherman-Palladino 26 years later will now have to compete against the “Roseanne” revival at the 2018 Emmys.

Sherman-Palladino earned the original “Roseanne” its Only Best Comedy Writing nomination. “A Bitter Pill to Swallow” deals with Becky (Alicia Goranson) asking Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) to take her to get birth control and her less than excited reaction. It was as funny as it was insightful, giving audiences a glimpse of the lightening quick and hilarious dialogue which would become “Roseanne’s” signature.
