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.
This past weekend I spent some time catching up on Gossip Girl, and after pretty much missing the entire season 4, I had a lot of catching up to do. Now on Episode 5 of the latest season, the show seems to have just as many twists and turns as it used to. I’m not disappointed – except with Blair!
Typically the gal with the most fashion sense on the show, I have been so let down so far! Especially with how much green envy I have of Leighton Meester anytime she steps out into the limelight, I would like to make a plea to whomever is styling Blair’s hair for the show to reevaluate their strategy. Please! It appears they are trying to go with a 40’s style sleek waved look, but she ends up usually just looking like she stepped out of the shower and let her hair air dry – in a bad way. On top of that, they are trying to sweep her rather short bangs back into her style to hide them, and aren’t doing a very good job of doing so. It’s driving me nuts!
Serena, on the other hand, has already had a dozen hairstyles I love. What’s the deal, Blair!
Any of you keeping up with this season on Gossip Girl?
