January Jones on Mad Men season 5 premiere

15 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

It is better to be controversial than boring if you want to be talked about. Now being one of the leading stars of “Mad Men” series, and definitely a leading female character, one mustn’t worry about lack of attention. But, there can’t be too much attention. January Jones arrived to season 5 premiere of “Mad Men” in Roland Mouret black cutout dress – the only thing that wasn’t “Betty Draper”. The hair, the make up, the classy black pumps, and even coral nail polish all mirrored our fav “Birdie”. All, except the dress.

Love the color blocking, but the holes resembling a ski mask holes that robbers go to banks in, are just too much, in my opinion. She has much more prettier face up there and the one located on the belly is just pulling “the blanket” too aggressively. Reminded me persistently about bed sheet ghost made by Karlsson (Russian cartoon after Astrid Lindgren book). See the picture.

 
 

Fashion star debut, DC resonance

15 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

“Fashion Star” pilot aired yesterday on NBC and planted quite a buzz among DC fashion peeps. NBC Washington set up a web chat topped by Angie Goff, and co-supported by many DC fashion scientists. Hour and a half of the show, as well as a chat, was concentrated and rockety quick. Even commercial breaks on TV didn’t put off the bubbling conversation on the web.

Garments bought by Macy’s‘, Saks Fifth Avenue’s and H&M’s representatives, were instantly available for sale on stores’ websites, and by this moment some of them are sold out.

Show airs every Tuesday on 10/9c on NBC.
