Fug Girls: Melrose Place’s Katie Cassidy Is the Next ‘It’ Girl


Katie Cassidy’s Melrose Place character Ella is that show’s heir apparent to Heather Locklear's Amanda Woodward: conniving, short-skirted, and snarky (but, mercifully, without Amanda's affinity for wearing mules). She's the best thing about the Melrose reboot — you know that's true when barely anyone talks about how she's David Cassidy's daughter — and as such, Katie is inching her way toward red-carpet omnipresence. But an "It" girl is nothing without her wardrobe, and refreshingly, Katie appears to understand that, eschewing leggings and pasties in favor of frocks that display actual old-fashioned effort. Dive into the slideshow to check out her sartorial handiwork.
