Apples of Our Eyes

After eight silly, sexy, and saucy seasons, Desperate Housewives aired their one hundred and seventy-ninth and conclusive one hundred and eightieth episodes Sunday. In honor of ABC’s fourth longest one hour scripted series, I present Wisteria Lane’s signature quartet whose ensembles were consistently as scrumptious as the forbidden fruit which symbolized their show.

Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis), sauntering with aplomb, owns this insouciant printed maxi dress, which she accents with oversized black sunnies, black wedges sandals, and a blue tote which mirrors her attire. Gabi, your response when Sister Mary Bernard once opined money can't buy happiness, is my mantra. Sure it can! That's just a lie we tell poor people to keep them from rioting.

Marcia Cross (Bree Van de Kamp) exemplifies relaxed in a nonchalant blue cardigan, white tank, and boyfriend jeans with a studded belt, brown sunnies, brown sandals, and a brown shoulder bag. Bree, I absolutely share your opinion, I love sex. I love everything about it: the sensations, the smells, I especially love the feel of a man pressed against my body.

Felicty Huffman (Lynette Scavo) radiates sempiternal elegance with a modern twist in a floral and embellished knee length dress and precious teardrop earrings. Lynette, every significant other should share Tom's ingenuity, they should find ways to compliment us when they could just say they told us so.

Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer-Delfino) charms in an adorable silver and gold blouse and dark washed jeans, accentuated with delightful earrings and a shimmery clutch. Susan, your sentiment exquisitely encapsulated this program's tenure, some people never get to know the folks next door. They share a fence and nothing else. We've shared everything. How'd we get so lucky?
