The Bold and the Beautiful

This is a March of the Bloggers guest post!

"The Bold and the Beautiful"
Hope vs. Steffy
by Pamela of Soaps Style


Our next guest blogger runs a fashion blog with a twist! She's totally passionate about the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful and what she does with her blog is take the fabulous fashion styles from the show and translate them into something real world girls can wear. So unique and interesting, right? She's here to introduce you to her favorite show and the two most fashionable characters on it.


Are you a 'Hope' or a 'Steffy' from 'The Bold & the Beautiful'?

Hope Logan and Steffy Forrester are two fictional characters from the daytime drama 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. These twenty something girls are the new B&B generation of arch rivals, following in the footsteps of their respective mothers from nearly 20 years ago. Why? Why of course, love. Fighting for the affections of one man. Although the storyline can often make us giggle or roll our eyes, we can't help coming back to watch every day to see what these girls are wearing. Their fashions are major fabulous, but very different, much like the characters themselves. Which one are you? Are you a 'Hope' or are you a 'Steffy'?

Who is Hope?

What is she like? Virtuous, sweet, kind, honest, strong, but very privileged
What does she look like? A modern day 'Sandra Dee' with long blond hair, blue eyes, and feminine curves
What does she do? Spokesperson and muse for the Forrester line 'Hope for the Future' (Forrester Creations is an LA based fashion house)
What are her values? Virginity until marriage, self respect, young girl empowerment
Character Flaws: Selfish, naive, imposes impossible expectations on those around her, and behaves a little spoiled and childishly
Current Storyline: She is fighting to get Liam's marriage to Steffy annulled so she can move forward with her life with Liam Spencer
Signature Style: Preppy Chic, feminine, soft colors and fabrics
Often seen wearing: J Crew, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade

Who is Steffy?

What is she like? Smart, funny, confident, sexy, impetuous, with a vulnerable, sweet and loving side
What does she look like? Dark ombre modern bob, dark anime eyes, thin yet fit
What does she do? PR Exec at Forrester Creations, and muse for the Forrester line the 'Intimates' collection
What are her values? Loyalty, hard work, commitment, family ties, living each day to the fullest
Character flaws: She has a habit of lying, deceiving and manipulating to get what she wants
Current Storyline: She is fighting to save her marriage with Liam, a marriage she manipulated herself into (and manipulated Hope out of, Liam's former fiancee)
Signature Style: Cosmo Chic, edgy, sexy, bold, ambitious
Often seen wearing: Alexander McQueen, Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana

I've never watched The Bold and the Beautiful before, but from what I just read I definitely think I'm a "Hope." I love the concept of taking fashion from shows! Reminds me a bit of the Mad Men line from Banana Republic.

  1. OMG!! I thought this idea & post was GREAT!! Completely different concept from anything I've seen. I used to watch Day of our Lives waaaaaaay back in the day! I never really thought about how soap operas really do so much different styles on the characters! Thanks Pamela!!

    1. Thank you!!! And yes, they change the outfits quite often so it is fun to watch. pamela @soapsstyle

  2. this was a fun read! thanks pamela!

    i've never seen the show either, but i'd say i'm a "hope" as well! for other shows that inspire my gotta see "new girl" i just LOVE zooey deschanel's style and all her quirkiness. :)


    1. Thank you! I too love Zooey Deschanel's style, she is adorable

  3. I just got the complete outfit for the "Hope" style, so I guess I'm more on the hope side. On the other hand, I do love the match with blue dress and long earrings, I gotta try that outfit some day.


  4. The current poll is 57% Hope and 43% Steffy :) Thank you all for reading and for your feedback. warm regards, pamela @soapsstyle

  5. I'm a mix of both, I love mostly things Steffy wears...but I love things of Hope too.
