Bravo's The Fashion Show Episode 10: Beauty and the Beast that is Plagiarism

Did you catch last Thursday’s episode of Bravo’s The Fashion Show. If you haven’t and you love fashion, I have to demand that you go to the website right this second and watch this episode. I don’t care if you’ve missed every episode up to now, this was the one to watch, people.

In an evening gown challenge, one of the designers, Johnny, brought out a gown as his own and Isaac Mizrahi and Harper’s Bazaar’s Editor-In-Chief Glenda Bailey judged it to be a knockoff of Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Lanvin from the 2009 Golden Globes. In the immortal words of Whitney Houston, “Aw, Hell to the Naw!” (That’s “Oh, HELL NO” for those who don’t speak Whitney.) He was dismissed and Daniella won but can you imagine the drama of having a dress you designed pronounced a knock-off in front of Isaac Mizrahi, IMG’s Fern Mallis AND Harper’s Bazaar’s EIC? I clutched my pearls (not really) just thinking about it!

But I digress. The winning design was Danielle’s gorgeous confection based on a stormy sky. If you want to a gown based on the design (which is really quite lovely), head to Bravotv.com and shop til you drop. As always, I was loving Jeanie Syfu’s hairstyles and the fabulous TRESemme artist strikes again with an easy-to-repeat, summer-friendly style. According to Jeanie, this is how you get the look for your next big night out:

“Starting with damp hair, apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse on the top section, and blow dry with a round brush. Pin curl, and set. Distribute TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Sculpting Spray Gel to remaining hair, and blow dry. Pull hair back into a sleek bun, using a flat brush for control. Take pin curl clips out on top, and tease the base for lift. Brush lightly for a smooth surface, and hold with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray. Work the rest of the length into the bun, and pin.”

Easy, right? More behind-the-scenes hair, makeup and looks from the finale to come.
