‘The Young and the Restless’: Is Lauren Overreacting to the Wedding Dress Switch?

Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) is again back on top thanks to her latest plot on The Young and the Restless. The fashion designer has become the talk of Genoa City due to her creating Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) wedding dress. However, not everyone is happy with Sally’s good fortune.

‘The Young and the Restless’ Lauren Fenmore upset her dress wasn’t used

Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman) is The Young and the Restless‘ resident fashionista. When any big soiree is held, Genoa City turns to her to dress them to the nines. Lauren provided one when Victora was searching for a dress for her wedding to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi). Although Victoria wasn’t keen on the garment, she bought it anyway.

However, when the big day arrived, she didn’t wear Lauren’s dress. Sally secretly designed another dress and switched the Fenmore garment with her own. Victoria looked elegant as she walked down the aisle and later thanked Sally for her creation.

It didn’t take long for news about Sally’s dress to hit the web. As expected, when Lauren saw Victoria wearing a different outfit, all hell broke loose.

Lauren Fenmore feels betrayed

An angry Lauren wanted answers on the dress switch. The one person who provided clarity is Lauren’s sister-in-law Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson). Chloe admitted she was in on Sally’s plan, then defended her actions by saying Newman Media needed the press.

Chloe’s betrayal further irritated Lauren, who is now worried about the state of her business. Although it’s understandable Lauren is upset, many fans feel she’s blowing this out of proportion. On Twitter, The Young and the Restless viewers called out Lauren’s behavior. “It’s called competition, Lauren. Your dress wasn’t up to par,” wrote one user. Another commenter chimed in with, “Instead of being salty about that table cloth dress being stuffed back in Victoria’s closet, she should be asking herself how she let the client leave the dress fitting looking repulsed.”

Sally Spectra makes a new enemy in Lauren Fenmore

Sally and Lauren’s relationship has taken a drastic turn in the past year. Lauren offered Sally a job and a fresh start when the young fashion designer came to Genoa City. However, Sally’s scheme with Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner) ended up costing her everything.

But Sally quickly bounced back with a new career at Newman Media, which will skyrocket after Victoria’s wedding. However, Lauren isn’t going to let Sally get away with her latest scheme. Lauren wants payback, and she’s going to make sure Sally gets it. Yet, as The Young and the Restless fans know, Sally doesn’t back down from a fight. So which Genoa City fashion designer will win in this fierce competition?
