Interesting speculation of why the men are allowed to look peaked during rough times, and the women aren't. Remember when Bo was so sick? They had that down so realistically, right down to the dark circles around his eyes and the pale pallor of his skin. Kate and Chloe, on the other hand, looked like they came out of the beauty shop! Although, granted, I think when Sami gave birth, she actually sweated and didn't have overly done make-up on. Kudos for that. That is one thing I do like about Alison...she looks normal. She's not dressed to the 9's in her house, and I could even imagine spit up or baby formula on her shirt! I love Arianne's acting and love Nicole, but Nicole is just too pulled together. Even now, in jail and the bad hair-do. She could do with a little less "oomph".

I think they are doing a fairly reasonable job showing the women less than perfect. They messed up with the wig Nicole is wearing but other than that Nicole pulled herself together with her matchy brown outfit down to the nail polish color and made up eyes in the fleabag motel which makes sense because she would want something to keep herself distracted and the eye on the prize. In jail you see her makeup much more subdued like it's wearing off and her fingernail polish is chipped. Nice touches. Also, you have Carly with her limp lifeless hair during the more harrowing times of her return and now that she's somewhat safe her hair is all fluffed up looking much nicer. Chloe is another story. Maybe it has more to do with the actors' willingness to look less than perfect.

Regarding James. IMO his aged look has more to do with the LA lifestyle and not wearing sunblock more than anything because I started noticing his boyish looks were disappearing around summer 2008 also a time he was bulking so who knows. i do miss that youthful aire that EJ used to have.

But the character of EJ has also matured in that he's a father and he's the head of a complex family. That stress ages you..at least I'm glad that theyre showing it!

LOL, Kate looked ridiculous in that cancer storyline (which was a waste of time).
