Inspired By: Beauty and the Beast

Let's start with a story: Once upon a time in a land that doesn't really exist (aka The Internet), a young woman named Sara (hey, that's me!) kept hearing about this TV show called Beauty and the Beast from another young woman named Jessica (she's really awesome!). She finally watched it, fell in love, and lived happily ever after. End of story. 

I started watching this on Netflix after hearing Jessica obsess over it's awesomeness. And boy was she right. It has adventure, romance, mystery, two bad-ass lady cops, and a hot guy that is shirtless a lot. It's based on the 1987 show of the same name and follows Catherine (aka Cat), who was saved by a beast on the night her other was murdered. Nine year's later, Cat is an NYPD detective and she runs into this beast again. Only he's not really a beast. Vincent is an ex-soldier and he's in hiding. And now Cat is caught up in the mystery. 

Catherine Chandler
Cat -- Beauty and the Beast

Cat (Kristin Kruek) is a detective haunted by the fact that her mother was murdered in front of her and that she was protected by a beast, but no one believes her. Years later, she is saved again by Vincent and sees that there's a lot more to the story. But just because she keeps being saved doesn't mean she isn't a tough, determined woman who never backs down or can hold her own.

Cat is an NYPD detective, but she dresses up now and then: throw on a navy dress with a brown leather jacket with gold rings, and blue pumps. Or for the work day, put on a faux leather jacket, chambray top, jeans, and black ankle booties. 

Vincent Keller
Vincent -- Beauty and the Beast
Vincent (Jake Ryan) has been in hiding for ten years with his best friend, J.T. He's a former doctor and former soldier who was experimented on, but things didn't turn out as planned and now his life is in danger. After saving Cat's life nine years ago, he's been keeping on eye on her and has been helping other people on the streets of NYC.

Vincent may not be a masked crusader, but he likes to lay low, so put on a baseball cap, t-shirt, jeans, and Keds. Or instead wear an olive jacket, blue tank top, distressed denim, and brown booties. 

Tess Vargas
Tess -- Beauty and the Beast
Tess (Nina Lisandrello) is Cat's NYPD partner and best friend. They're a great time because they always have each other's backs, but Tess starts to suspect that Cat is hiding something (or someone) from her.

Throw on a dark green jacket, a gray sweater, green cargo pants, and sneakers. Or a quilted black leather jacket, a purple top, black jeans, a watch, and black booties. 

J.T. Forbes
JT -- Beauty and the Beast
J.T. (Austin Basis) is Vincent's best friend and has been in hiding for ten years. He's a former professor and knows quite a lot about technology and genetics. He's the only one who knows that Vincent is still alive until Cat shows up.

Just because J.T. is the resident nerd doesn't mean he's also not cool: put on some glasses, a plaid top, jeans, a purple watch, and purple loafers. Or wear a blue plaid dress, heart stud earrings, and coral pointed toe flats.
