Top 10 Things I Learned at Fashion Week, Part 5


9.) SENEGAL'S IN THE HOUSE: Every show I visited backstage, I made it a point to chat with the brown girls and found out their take on the where-have-all-the-black-models-gone controversy. More often then not, they were too bleary-eyed, exhausted and starving to really go there with me, but what I did find out was that they all seemed to be from Senegal! Seriously, three of the hottest girls walking this season are from said country...including Kinee Diouf (above)...


Maria Fuema...


and Aminata "Mia" Niaria. Gorge, right?










10.) PALIN IS SULLYING THE UPDO'S REP: Don't get it twisted...the updo is no longer the stuffy, sexless style of decades past. At Brian Reyes, Monique Lhullier, Alice & Olivia, Oscar de la Renta, Philip Lim (left, fab Arlenis Sosa), and Lela Rose, the models all wore varying takes on the sexy, unstructured upsweep. From the quirky side bun to a sloppy-on-purpose French twist, these "oh I just threw it up in a clip" styles always look effortlessly cool. Hairstylists were using Sebastian Craft Clay Remoldable Matte Texturizer ($12.99), a light texturizer to create the look. Simply rub a tad between your hands, sweep through loose hair (jiggle at the roots for more texture), and then pin up your strands however you like. Hot, hot, hot.

I saw some article recently that said women are asking their hairdressers for the "Palin" and shopping for her wardrobe.
I have to ask, who are these women?

Thanks for pointing out we don't have to be afraid of wearing our hair up, as long as it doesn't veer in to Palin territory :)

I'm known to throw my hair up in clip because it's easy and gets my hair off my shoulders and my face. I proceeded to do so the other day (my hair was curly from a rollerset) and do you know what my co-worker said?

"Oh my gosh, you're Sarah Palin."

Consider the look sullied :-/

My guildies world of warcraft gold and I were discussing how the gratification and validity of end game raiding has steadily been decreasing since wow powerleveling the release of WoW. An example in Pre-TBC was that those individuals who spent the time to raid end game world of warcraft gold content to get the best gear in the game would have the ability to control pvp, that casuals would partake in. Obviously wow power leveling it felt good to always own casuals and it gave gratification and vailidty to a portion of raiding outside raids. For world of warcraft gold the sake of rambling I'll leave it with that example alone, I know wow powerleveling there are quite a few others.However Post-TBC dofus kamas this aspect of raiding was nullified with the full blown development of pvp and those who raided dofus kamas end game had less advantage over those who didn't in regards to pvp. I'm not saying Lord of the Rings Online Gold it was bad but the fact remains it took away a benefit of raiding. Another LOTRO Gold change was with the introduction of badge gear, which allowed "wanna be raiders" not to have to fly for fun penya raid every 25man in the raid to see the final content due to flyff penya the fact that they could spend time getting badges and prepare for Hyjal / BT instead of going back Final Fantasy XI gil through Gruul, Mag, Ssc, and TK. This change was obviously for the best ffxi gil because it allowed for a larger recruitment pool for guilds who were trying to complete the most current eq2 plat end game instances, but it also took away a sense of long time dedication to get the guild where eq2 gold it was at the point in relation to before the average player experience level was the same. Again their Lord of the Rings Online Gold are more examples but your brains LOTRO Gold are slowing straying so I'll skip to the next point.We now see in the WotLK beta that at some flyff penya point casuals are going to be able to see the dungeons, storyline, and boss buy flyff gold fights in 10mans somewhat like or perhaps even extremely similar to those people who put the ffxi gil effort to do the 25mans. This is again going to take away from the gratification and buy ffxi gil validity of end game raiding, there will be no more statements or bragging to others about how they eq2 plat seen Kalecgos and M'uru. I personally take alot of pride and in the fact that I've been able to see, partake, and eq2 gold learn the M'uru fight because I know that the Lord of the Rings Online gold average wow player will not, due to the LOTRO gold understanding, complexity, and overall difficulty derived from these fights. In WotLK even fly for fun penya the players in blues and "kara" gear will be able to experience a portion flyff penya if not all of these fights at some point.So..... With all this said I'd like to Final Fantasy XI gil ensure that those of you who are still awake from reading this know that there is more to raiding ffxi gil that what I've stated above, but my point is that slowly the validity and rewards of eq2 plat raiding are being decreased.As a result I'd like to offer some input on how to bring some of this back eq2 gold in WotLK. I think this can be done through a concept that is just being put together and refined, Achievements. We all runescape money know that every server has a progression thread were guilds are often ranked based upon the amount, which, and when runescape gold boss's were killed. Why not put these two concepts together and create a Guild Achievement Progression ugg boots Tab? A place where the server's top ranking end game raiding guilds are listed in order to allow new players ugg boots to be able to see who they can try to apply for and also to promote competition and respect. A couple of concepts to tie into this ugg boots page would be very useful.

I refer more world of warcraft gold so to the reward of world of warcraft gold seeing content. As it stands gear doesn't entitle you to do much other than raid.That works too. So does this.We all wow power leveling have a little failboat captain in us all.Self esteem refers to how much a world of warcraft gold person likes, accepts, and respects himself overall as a person. I was not referring to what the game cheap wow gold gives me, but to the time vs reward investment blizzard has presented.put some time into BGs and Arena and you world of warcraft gold will be rewarded... in PvP put time into Raids and you will be rewarded... in PvE i dont see what the big issue is, after cheap wow gold looking at all these posts it seems like the bottom line is that raiders want to be rewarded in both PvE world of warcraft gold and PvP for just particpating in PvE which doesnt make sence...It was never my intention to imply buy wow gold that raiders should be rewarded in both PvP and PvE. I was merely trying to suggest that blizzard world of warcraft gold should reevaluate the rewards "hardcore" raiders receive.There should be a bulletin board in every major city showing wow power leveling top ranking guilds as far as raids go. Also there should be a speed running world of warcraft gold category like down the last boss in an raid instance in X amount of time.No one is saying wow gold kaufen we want this... were just stating that it USED to be like this before pvp had alot of content of its own.Blizzard dofus kamas has held big tournaments for pvp with cash and prizes. All we want is a kamas dofus visible means that blizzard supplies

Taunt and wow gold devestate only worked to their max potential if you wow gold had a rend up, but thats a bit of a stretch.As Far as wow gold Talnar, You are correct on alot of points, although along the lines of taking talents you dont want, i actually wow gold ment it in reverse. I was looking at it more of " Wow, if wow gold you want to go to the bottom of the blood tree, your spec is defined for you just wow gold by skipping tanking abilities You are correct, about holding wow gold threat with DPS instead of " causes threat" abilities, and i did forget about frost presence. Like i said i was wow gold more or less looking at DPS DeathKnights only, but i think the wow gold next point i would bring up.This fund has been stashed out of the excess profit made last year by my branch wow gold office the International Commercial Bank which I am the Manager.
