Can I hear an "amen"?

The bowling shirt was awful, and I was wondering about the huge plaid shirt until I heard on the commentary that it was supposed to be a "shirt she borrowed from Charlie." Which makes sense, I totally borrow boy clothes when washing the car. Didn't come across in the movie that well, though.

And glad that the khaki skirt and ponytail stayed away as well. Going to church is not hot, and I am thinking that she had to look DAYUM good in that dark blue v-neck for Edward to react the way he did to that outfit - he had to be looking past the skirt, I think.
I liked Bella's wardrobe for the most part, with the exception of the bowling shirt, the hippie top, and the yicky pjs. She could have looked cute without looking provocative in those bed scenes. A more fitted wife-beater, maybe. Thank god they didn't put the "holey t-shirt and sweats" thing in. I did like her coats, jackets, and thermals.

Oh and those short shorts (at least that's what I hope they were) in the bedroom/kiss scene were insane! The least they could have done was have her wear sweats like what she does in the book so it doesn't look so umm I can't think of the right word but terrible will work. (But I guess you can't blame her too much. They have wardrobe people that help pick the stuff out.) It mentions in the movie companion book that they wanted her to start out dressing kind of tomboyish & then as she gets to know the Cullens and gets put in their world she goes more feminine. And they did do a good job with that for the cute jacket she wears in the meadow/reveal, and also the hotel & ballet studio scenes. And then of course Alice getting her the dress for prom.
There were a couple scenes that I thought her reaction or lack thereof wasn't very Bella like. And I don't know if it was the script, editing, directing, or really Kristen but I wish they had more Bella like reactions. (For example when she finds out Edward had been watching her sleep & when Mike talks about you & Cullen hu?) But other than that I think she did a good job as Bella. It'll be interesting to see her as a depressed, zombie like in NM.
