running [late] in heels.
HOW DID I FORGET ABOUT RUNNING IN HEELS?! I am completely and 100 percent obsessed with the new Style show following three interns at Marie Claire. It is so good. I had to buy a iTunes season pass since I can get HBO and free porn at my apartment but not the Style channel. Anyways, I love it. Joanna Coles is a phenomenal editor and I cannot express how happy I am to see Nina Garcia again [want to be her].
The three interns are so entertaining to watch. My favorite, Samantha, is a Madison alum, and by far the one taking everything the most seriously, working the hardest and really showing that she is eager to be a part of the industry and try something new. I think she deserves all of the awesome projects she has been on because she is the most sincere.
Ashley. Oh. My. God. What the heck were they thinking hiring her? I have no doubt that she has extensive knowledge of the fashion industry, but late on your first real day? You should have been fired! Taking 2 hours to pick up wedding bands? NEW YORK IS FULL OF MASS TRANSIT FOR A REASON! I cannot believe that she has screwed up so royally and she still thinks that she deserves better projects and is the best intern. YOU CANNOT BE LATE IN AN INDUSTRY THAT IS DEPENDENT ON DEADLINES. And I could not even watch her pack up from the shoot for the shopping pages. Did she seriously toss some $400 sunglasses into that brown bag? I can speak from experience when I say that you treat anything you pull from a designer or department store like your first born child. At a shoot, those Manolos are more important that your health and future safety. So for someone with “so much experience” she doesn’t seem to have a clue most of the time.
Talita is decent. You can tell she is passionate and excited about her opportunities. It is unfortunate that she had some massive spelling errors [we have all be there] with her first project, not the mention the white-out incident on the project she did for Joanna [and by “she did,” I mean the one she took photos for and then handed off to some other intern to design]. But I do think she did a great job interviewing models backstage- she was very composed!
These girls are so fortunate to have this internship opportunity, I hope that they make the most out of it! I will continue to post my thoughts on the episodes and I encourage all of you to watch!
