#HouseofDVF: Episode VII

Fashion

And there were three….yes, Lenore was sent home. However, on a brighter note, she got an interview with the head of sales for DVF. So, all is well and the claws are out among the last three contenders. Brittney, Kier and Amanda are left.

This episode was based on selling their garments they made for DVF to Nordstrom. Brittney and Amanda won! Yay! Their dresses are sold in Nordstrom and in two different colours. Very exciting for both of them. Amanda proved that she was competition worthy by selling one of the pieces to a supermodel fitting. Super proud! Sadly, disappointed in Brittney and Kier making fun of the underdog since she can surprise DVF with her strong work ethic. Also, it was annoying to see how emotional the women were and they simply cannot keep it together.

Especially, when the women had an interview and photo shoot with In Style magazine. The women had to style themselves with DVF and Lenore failed miserably. She cannot style and she has no fashion sense at all. Plus, she and Amanda did not do well in the group interviews too. They did not do their research and Lenore kept rambling. This was when Diane knew that Lenore was not the brand ambassador and sent her home.

To be honest, Diane is right, anyone can win and we just have to see next week’s finale to see who wins. Next week is the spring/summer 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week and the women are in charge of the show. Cross fingers!

#VSFashionShow2014

Fashion, News

How amazing was the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Pre-show??? The elaborate settings and productions were incredible. There are no words to explain how flawless the show was.

The Pre-show online was fascinating and to see more of the behind-the-scene footage of the process creating the iconic fashion show. Also, the performance from Magic Man was spot on as usual and it was a great way to wait for the anticipation of the runway show.

Once the runway show was on CBS, it blew me and my best friend away. We could not believe how amazing the show was. The themes were true to Victoria’s Secret and the performances fit perfectly. The musical guests performed at different themes. The themes were: Gilded Angels, University of Pink, Exotic Traveler, Fairy Tale, Dream Girl, and the finale, Angel Ball. Taylor Swift performed during, Dream Girl and Angel Ball. She sang her latest hit, “Black Space” and a new single, “Style.” Ed Sheeran performed during Exotic Traveler and sang, “Thinking Out Loud.” Hozier performed during Fairy Tale and sang, “Take Me to Church.” Finally, Ariana Grande performed during University of Pink and sang a medley of her famous hits. I loved all of the performances and who does not love them at all??

You can tell the amount of thought and effort that went into each of the costumes. When each model came out to strut the runway, literally, there were no words. My favourite themes were all of them and did you see the Eddie Borgo jewelry??? Amazing. On Eddie Borgo’s Twitter feed, there is a link to behind the scenes of creating Angel Ball. Here is the link if you’d like to check it out and to know more behind the scene footage: https://www.victoriassecret.com/fashion-show/.

Also, I thought it was clever to include interviews of the models because you got to know them more and how they became an Angel today. They all have lovely personalities and you can tell they worked really hard. I want to get the, “Angels” book by Russell James, who is an iconic Victoria’s Secret fashion photographer. He helped create those iconic ads and photos that we know today that represents Victoria’s Secret. Hello….it’s almost the Holidays everyone, it is time to start shopping and wrapping up those presents!

Hope everyone enjoyed the show and until next year Angels!

#HouseofDVF: Episode IV

Fashion

Sunday’s episode of House of DVF was catty as usual and most of the women did not get along…#surprise. However, this episode was eventful starting off with the trip to Bergdorfs for a DVF sales event and Diane helped customers choose dresses. The only person who could not do their job or dressed up business appropriately to represent DVF is Abigail. Abigail clearly does not know how to be a brand ambassador for DVF and don’t forget about Jinna as well. She does loves to drink her cocktails during the job and who does that?? Plus, no one cares about your love life sweety. This is probably why both of them are possibly send home by Diane at the ending. However, we still have to wait and see for the newest episode.

The women had a great opportunity to design outfits for the brand and DVF Artistic Director, Michael Herz chose the winners. He chose Brittany, Jinna and Amanda’s sketches. The best part was that before he chose the winner, he puts Kier into her place because she did not design an innovated outfit…#basic. She literally looked like she was about to cry and throw a fit. Oh well and now the women have to be split up into teams to finish creating the winning designs.

Another fight broke out between the women but honestly I am over talking about who’s fighting since once again Brittany and Amanda are girls not adult women. Yet, I am proud of Amanda for apologizing to Brittany for confronting her unprofessionally. Nope, Brittany cannot accept the apology because clearly she is “better than everyone else.” She should have and focused back to work.

It was Brittney’s lucky day though since Diane invited her to dine with her guests at her DVF luncheon. The women had to set up the luncheon that was planned for two days and they did a great job. Brittney did really well too when she dined with Diane and her guests. So who knows, she might win or someone else will.

Now, let’s wait for the latest episode this Sunday!
