I wasn’t planning on watching a Santino-free all-star episode of Project Runway but my other all-time favorites, Mondo Guerra and the hilarious Anthony Williams, got me to give in. And boy did I miss my Tim Gun and Heidi Klum! Though I must say the new mentor Joanna Coles, Editor in Cheif of Marie Claire, makes me feel like I’m watching a more friendlier version of the Devil Wears Prada. The new judges were funny but, It doesn’t matter how much I love buying his stuff at Target, Isaac Mizrahi is just NO Michael Kors!
I couldn’t help but notice that the hottest trend on the runway among the seasoned designers was the slicked back ponytail. Personally that’s always my go to choice when I’m feeling fashion forward. It looks clean and simple and it doesn’t detract from the clothes! You want people to check the shoes and the outfit first! Too much of a hair style can make a fashionable look tacky almost instantly. Too bad designer Elisa Jimenez learned that the hard way when she landed in the bottom two.
There are definitely lots ways to add more fun to simple sleek ponytail. My favorite look is the rope braid ponytail. It’s extremely easy to do and perfect for girls with thicker hair.
Last night things started to get sticky for the character Emily Thorne on the latest ABC drama Revenge. Don’t worry, no spoilers here, but I got to say I’m hooked. You can just tell there is going to be a not so lucky moment for Emily hiding right around the corner.
I am always so jealous of Emily’s attire in the show (I am still trying to figure out what that yellow dress was that she was wearing to the mother-daughter tea featured two episodes back), although for the most part I find her chosen hairstyle of ragged curls to be a little unimpressive. In the latest episode, however, she showed up to a 4th of July night time soiree with a smooth, low bun that I loved, not to mention that red dress she was wearing for the occasion.
Any of you keeping up with Revenge? What do you think of the show so far? What do you think is around the corner for the mischief crazy Emily Thorne?
I don’t know about all of you guys, but I have been riveted to The X Factor lately. Although I do confess I wish Simon would be a little tougher (really, is he having some out of body experience? He’s almost being nice), the setup of the contest really is what gets me as they’ve teamed up and work together all the while they are competing against each other.

Along with beautiful voices and extreme talent, I can’t help but notice that nearly all the contestants in these last few final shows have absolutely gorgeous hair! I’m looking at you, Melanie Amaro and Stacy Francis. I was definitely sad to see Simone Battle leave the competition, and I began to realize my favorites on the show had little to do with their actual singing talent and more to do with their amazing locks.
Simone went curly and straight throughout the show - and I was jealous the whole time!
I did say nearly all the contestants still on the show have absolutely gorgeous hair… I am just itching to give Rachel Crow a keratin treatment. But, after all… she is only 13, can you believe it? So much confidence and even more talent.
Any of you following the show? Who are your favorites?
