Magical Makeovers

It’s been a while, I feel like I’ve neglected my fellow Fashionistas! After a long week of study, it’s back to the wonderful world of fashion and just in time for the countdown to Rosemount Fashion Week! Just less than two weeks away, can you feel the fashion in the air? I know, l love fashion!
As I have a keen interest in styling, editorial and fashion journalism it’s important that I’m constantly fashion forward, trend forecasting, drawing from unique inspiration and pretty much standing out from the crowd. However, we’re told that the best way to trend forecast is look around you and take it to the streets. Except sometimes, I think I’d rather stick to the runways… Yes, I’m talking about, well, those fashion don’ts! I think most people have the potential and since I love styling, visualising a makeover to create a classic glamour, is part of the norm. I love watching shows like Trinny and Sussanah and Style Her Famous! Makeovers can change people’s lives. I’m a believer that a dash of designer, a sprinkle of etiquette, a little blush, a touch of class and a pinch of pretty and well just embracing natural beauty.. Can transform anyone and create a magical makeover!
When I think of makeovers, I think of the girls from MTV’s Jersey Shore. For those of you that don’t know, Jersey Shore is America’s latest TV show phenomenon. It’s been described as the “Real World on steroids”. The show follows the lives of the Italian Americans who describe themselves as Guidos and Guidettes, put together to live in a house in the Jersey Shore. Think, fake tans, sleeked hair, rooftop hot tubs, trashy nightclubs, fist pumping, drama and oh so mini clothing. A major call for a dramatic makeover. Yes, I’m talking about Jersey Shores very own Snooki, JWoww and Sammi. Harper’s Bazaar, along with socialite Tinsley Mortimer, staged an intervention and sent the girls to charm school. As well as being schooled in etiquette they were given complete makeovers. It seemed as though they had a major “situation” on their hands.
I think they did an amazing job and made these girls look a million dollars! Except you can take the girl out of the Jersey Shore, but you can’t take the Jersey Shore out of the girl. That’s right after their complete fashion makeovers and a crash course in etiquette, they went right back to where they started!
