Ok. Seriously, my DVR was all lined up, Blackberry put aside for me to curl up on my leather couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch Lifetime's "William & Kate" movie premiere. Ten minutes into the movie, I realized that the tissues I thought I'd need were going to be tears of laughter than of romance.
The actors in the movie were pretty similiar in appearances to the real-life people they were portraying, though Prince Harry came across as angry, evil and just plain weird. We got to see the famous sheer-dress, though the movie's version was boring compared to the original, and Kate's wardrobe was the result of a bad wardrobe budget. Never attempt to re-create couture and real labels on a budget. Some of the movie was so cheesy and so unrealistic. I sincerely doubt that Prince William would ever sing to Kate to woo her, and I highly doubt that the conversation between William and his father, Prince Charles, was accurate. Their conversation of how Princess Diana chose the public life seemed a little sad, and I highly doubt there is any concrete evidence of dialogue that the writers chose to use. The entire movie was was so slow and dragged out that by the time that the finale/engagement was shown, I was more dumbfounded by the bad computer-imaging of a safari background than by William proposing to Kate. Did anybody else laugh at how bad the acting was between Kate and her mother? Or that the "St. Andrews" college looked more community than ivy league (folding chairs and tables? paper decorations?). This movie was casted, directed, and launched way too fast. I'd rather see this in two years to see a wedding scene. Ugh. I was so angry that I wasted my time watching such a horrible movie, but at the same time, I was fascinated and easily amused at how bad it was. The only upside of the entire two hours was the actor playing William, Nico Evers Swindell. He was nice to watch, and seriously much better looking than the real Prince of Wales.

Every woman wants accessories that look different and stand out from accessories that other women are wearing. Eddie Borgo knows this which is why he came out with a new Fall collection for jewelry for the year of 2011. This jewelry features different insects. This is truly a great style for those of you women that are fascinated with nature and bugs.
Seriously, I wish she would just fade into oblivion, with her big Dior shades and "designer" ambitions. Her latest attempt to launch into the reality TV world didn’t work out, so someone gave her the brilliant idea of launching a beauty site to prove that Lauren Conrad is anything but bored. The website is full of hair and makeup tips she’s procured over the years (is a side braid that difficult?). The photo and videos shows Conrad, plus her longtime hairstylist, Kristin Ess, and her makeup artist, Amy Nadine. Conrad says that before joining forces with her glam team, she often turned to fashion magazines for beauty help — often unsuccessfully. “Growing up, I never really learned how to do my hair and makeup correctly and the results weren’t always great,” Conrad said in a release. “Our goal with The Beauty Department is to provide girls and young women with a basic how-to of simplified versions of popular trends and styles that they can recreate themselves.” The site covers hair and makeup basics, as well as health-related beauty topics, like sun protection (anybody with a brain knows about the benefits of sun lotion). This girl will seriously plaster her mug across anything these days to make a buck. Will you guys be checking out this website??
The consequences of John Galliano’s public insult will influence his life for long. He has been fired from Christian Dior and is currently waiting for a trial. And yesterday it was reported that the designer was dismissed from his position at John Galliano label.
John Galliano’s board decided it would be hard for the label to keep the designer due to his present reputation. Christian Dior, which owns 91 percent of the Galliano house, has been offered to sell the company. They have received several expressions of interest from Italian licensing partner Ittierre, a Chinese group and a firm from the Middle East. But so far the sale of the label is not considered.
John Galliano, the designer, has already completed an “intensive” treatment course at an Arizona rehab center. He is now in extended “aftercare.” It's sad to see someone who is so brilliant in the fashion world come crashing down into a pit of disaster.
