The Bold And The Beautiful (B&B) scoop for the week of May 11 reveals a theme week dedicated to fashion. But do the featured episodes properly highlight B&B’s more than 30 years of fashion shows?
This week, we’ll see a classic on location fashion show in Lake Como, Italy, Hope Logan (Kim Matula) being chased by the press in Aspen, Colorado and Sally Spectra’s (Courtney Hope) first fashion show, featuring stolen Forrester designs.
The best episode of the week, hands down, will air on Monday. Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) will be on pins and needles as the Forrester Creations fashion show begins, in the magical setting of Villa d’Este on Lake Como. The company was in trouble and they knew the show had to be a big hit. Meanwhile, Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) and Sally Spectra (Darlene Conley) manage to crash the show and hope to see Forrester fail. This episode originally aired on October 29, 1997.
Bold And The Beautiful Scoop – Ridge Forrester Tries To Sabotage Quinn Forrester
On Tuesday, Hope will be chased around Aspen by photographers during Aspen Fashion Week, courtesy of Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). He thinks Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is a better match for his son. So he hired Oliver Jones (Zack Conroy) to whip the press into a frenzy. This episode originally aired on April 27, 2012.

On Wednesday, Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) will have to deal with an angry Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Steffy during a Forrester fashion show. In this episode that aired on November 11, 2016, Quinn featured her jewelry during a segment of the show. And Ridge set out to sabotage her.
And on Friday, in an episode that originally aired on April 14, 2017, Sally puts on revamped fashion house Spectra Designs’ first fashion show. Unfortunately, she stole her designs from Forrester Creations. And her sister Coco Spectra (Courtney Grosbeck) had no idea Sally was using her in her scheme. This episode also features Pierson Fodé as Thomas Forrester.
Bold And The Beautiful Scoop – Fans Disappointed By Choice Of Fashion Themed Episodes
All and all, this fashion theme week looks like a huge bust. B&B will show Steffy and Liam Spencer’s (Scott Clifton) wedding in Australia on Friday, May 8, so why would producers choose an episode that originally aired the day before (March 21, 2017) to highlight next week?
“33+ years to choose from and
#BoldandBeautiful can only pick ONE fashion show that isn’t from the last decade?” one fan commented on Twitter. “There are so many more memorable ones to go with.” Another fan also expressed displeasure at the choice of episodes. “3 of these are in the last 5 years and are on the app, come on.”
Viewers would have loved to see the launch of Brooke’s Bedroom in 1998. Or how about the episode where a satisfied Stephanie looked on as Eric dumped Sally on the runway during a 1995 fashion show? What about Ridge Forrester (Ron Moss) proposing to Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) while she was wearing a showstopper wedding gown during a Forrester fashion show episode that originally aired on October 8, 1996?
There are many other classic B&B fashion moments that could have been featured. Unfortunately, it seems producers may have dropped the ball on this theme week.
