Peroxide Babies


Is it me, or has everyone combed a vat of Clorox in their hair?


I'm kinda on the fence with Mary Kate's new do. On one hand, I applaud her for taking fashion risks, (even when they're fashion misses) but from far away, she can very well be mistaken for Christina Aguilera.

And of course, fashion darling, Agyness Deyn, has been rocking a platinum pageboy cut that have been booking her for shows like Zac Posen, Marc by Marc, Lanvin and more. A true model is one who can have a bowl cut and still rock the hell out of it. And how grand are those Lanvin sunglasses? Me want!



Mariacarla Boscono rocking the pretty ethereal Mia Farrow -in -Rosemary's Baby- Cut that has been making her ever so popular these days. God, I love it when a simple snip of the scisscors can define a model's career. Just, love it.




Sadly, I cannot say the same for Gwen Stefani.

Her new blunt "bob" (are we really supposed to believe that hair is real?) is really making me uncomfortable. I prefer the pre-pregnancy Gwen, with her Jean Harlow waves and Harajuku girls that actually look as though they were from Japan. I can't believe Gwen forced her mute back up dancers to wear her same ridiculous blonde wig and poorly designed jumpers from her LAMB line that are suppose to resemble lambs. There's a fine line between being stylishly witty and being ridiculously crap. And sadly, for Gwen, that line has dissolved, bigtime.

Wow, what a name for a blog! None of these platinum women are giving me a fashion O.

I do like the style of Stefani's hair but, hate it when it looks particularly wiggy.

How interesting. Everyone had Jet black hair this summer, and now this winter platinum blonde. Models always seem to be able to rock any type of hairstyle. Some people get all the luck...

hmm no on the vat of clorox thing-- in eighth grade, me and me friends (probably under the influence of something) decided to dye my brown hair platinum blonde-- we put a huge bottle of peroxide and a bunch of household bleach into a bowl, and then i stuck my head into it-- but nothing whatsoever happened.

it's very hard to pull of peroxide blonde. Agyness Deyn and Mariacarla Boscono are really rocking the look. I wish i could say the same for Mary Kate and Gwen. As much as i love mary kate, the girl looks ill. And seriously, gwen stefani, take off the wig.

mary kate looks like she ate kate bosworth, but without absorbing any of the calories.

totally agree re: gwen. all of her projects now seem like advertisements for her other ventures.
