Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
Oh, and thanks to the commenter who left the link!
Sweet jesus, how much makeup is she wearing?That is sad, she really used to be so pretty.
Yeah, I definitely caught her taking the droop off her paralyzed eyelid:Before (with accidental clone tool):http://23.media.tumblr.com/NB8YioMLik0bshhuCLP7588zo1_r1_500.jpgAfter:http://13.media.tumblr.com/NB8YioMLik0bshhuCLP7588zo1_r3_500.png
So mean yet so funny! HAHAHAHAA!!!
Hah! I have this as an avatar on a completely unrelated forum, and it truly freaks people out.
It's like she's been caught in mid-"duh".
This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer is mistaken for a mentally challenged person and is invited to a benefit. Jankles may wonder why her mailbox is suddenly flooded with invites to events for the Special Olympics after this makes the rounds.
Here are a few tweets for your up-too-late-or-too-early entertainment:felsull:One of the Nonsociety people is filming right in front of me. You know I'm bored if I'm tweeting thisaedison:If in doubt, blame society. If still in doubt, blame NonSociety. aedison:@clapifyoulikeme didn't understand my last tweet, because she doesn't know what NonSociety is. I'd tell her, but it's better this way.brianstelter:@maryrambin asks me: from a guy's perspective, what would I like to see on NonSociety?@MetromixNewYork: Julia Allison at Tents wearing a red tutu with matching heels and white cape. We see Disney in her future
Detective Cupcake here. I just solved the Mystery of the Fashion Week Interviews. From TONY:Video: Julia Allison on Fashion Weekhttp://www3.timeoutny.com/newyork/tonyblog/2009/02/video-julia-allison-on-fashion-week/Video: Julia on Charlotte Ronson Showhttp://www3.timeoutny.com/newyork/tonyblog/2009/02/video-charlotte-ronson-show/Video: Fashion Week Recessionhttp://www3.timeoutny.com/newyork/tonyblog/2009/02/video-fashion-week-recession/I haven't watched them. Not sure I can stand to.Now, do I get a Scooby snack, or what?
The bow-band does give her a pinheaded look. Sigh.
Just tried to visit NS website. You'd think at this time of morning, traffic would be light and I wouldn't have any problems loading the home page. Think again.There are umpteen scripts that try to run, and you never know which one is going to hang and force you to reload the page next. It took three reloads. (Good work, nextnewnetworks, threadbanger, tmiweekly, Vimeo, izea, doubleclick, izearanks, macromedia, google-analytics, and googlesyndication).Most relevant Google Ad served up:Soy for Menopause
I love headbands. They're the next best thing to wearing a tiara. Which I would totally do every day, except then people would laugh in my face instead of just behind my back. It's hard to interview people when they're laughing so hard they can't hear the questions. Believe me, I've tried.(I sleep in a tiara, though. That's our little secret.)
RBNS - wanted to send you something. Could you send me an email?MissCast@gmail.com
Julia is down with her black homies, yo;http://titsandwits.tumblr.com/post/78380845/thats-actually-the-very-gorgeous-djimon-hounsouKimora and Russel got divorced last summer, dingbat.
from a Man's perspective if she would have used lighter color lipstick and lighter makeup she would look somewhat okay
Remmeber folks if Mary has to describe how to navigate your website to visitors you are doing it WRONG!
Miss Cast: It's up above ... email@example.com. That goes directly to our queen and overlord, RBNS.
Isn't it SO NICE that she has now edited the caption to read "Kimora Lee Simmons, her bf Djimon Hounsou" - where's the credit for the site that called you out on this JA? Weird that she worked for a tabloid but was completely unaware of this, too.
Reminds me of something I read in the NYT Sunday Styles section yesterday where Carla Bruni said that women over 25 shouldn't wear makeup because it ages them. Those old pictures of Julia when she wore less makeup looked great. Meghan and Mary both wear limited, natural makeup and they, for the most part, look their age. Let me settle into my armchair and speculate that Julia wears more makeup because she is more insecure about her looks. This could also explain the costume-y outfits. She masks herself with makeup and crazy outfits in hopes that it will add personality to her and make her more attractive. It's a shame because I am sure that Julia would look much nicer with better styling and less makeup/false eyelashes.Am I also the only love-to-hate NS follower that really wants to see where Julia and the girls will be in 5-10 years?
Maybe this has already been discussed, but how tacky is it to blog about how you went around after the show and collected up all the left behind show swag (the HL umbrellas)? These gauche girls are the cockroaches of fashion week ... scurrying around and gobbling up everyone else's left overs and trash. Gross.
Mean Girl - very tacky and even though I feel like they're doing it for "transparency", that isn't what people were talking about. It won't win them any points with PR people, that's for sure.9:31 I agree with your observation. The makeup, the attire, the antics - all would be unnecessary if she truly were about something. Someone posted awhile ago about how the TMI outtakes make it obvious that more often than not she has nothing to say, and sits there posing, preening and pretending to be interested in the conversation until she can turn it around to herself and her life. TMI isn't supposed to be nonsociety on video, I thought the point of it was the legitimize nonsociety - to be a topical show so it wasn't all about them like their 3-blogs-in-one-site basically is. Not everything has to be anecdotal and about you, Julia. If you want to be anything even remotely resembling a journalist just do the research and report it!
You are so right. Julia tries to create a distraction with the crazy costumes and makeup because she is truly about NOTHING and has NOTHING to say. In any interview or video she does, she stammers "Ummmm" and "Uhhhh" and talks in circles about absolutely nothing. She memorizes buzzwords and throws them out like she's saying something but she's really not. The only time she actually says something, blog, video or otherwise, is when she's bitching and moaning about something. Seriously, I have never read more ungrateful, insufferable drivel in my life. I'm soooo tired, I'm sooooo overworked, I'm sooooo tired of eating mediocre food, I'm sooooo sick of fashion week. What a whiny, spoiled and lazy woman-child.
Ugh, I agree, Stale Cupcake. Once I saw her on the Chelsea Handler show. She appeared with that guy Christian something from Best Week Ever. He and Chelsea were serving up the wit and the snark while Julia tried in vain to keep up. She struck me as completely without wit and not very smart. She has nothing to say.
She was awful on Chelsea Lately. She just didn't get it at all. I think she was fired shortly after that.
The other day, I forget the context, Julia Allison asked (rhetorically, I assume, her preferred style of question) something like, "Do you ever start a sentence without having the slightest idea where it will end up?"To which I had to answer, "no." That's why I'm a journalist and Julia Allison is not.
http://julia.nonsociety.com/post/78700982-0-32She confuses white people too, apparently. Saw this last night and the strikethrough was not there. It literally is and was her job to know these things or to spend five seconds to come to know these things. She's so fucking LAZY. That's my thing -- it's like you want to be an entrepeneur, why would I want to begrudge you that? But you don't want to work AT ALL to have a successful business? Well then why should I patronize your business? You obviously have no respect for me, your audience. (Not like I'd be into all this "women should be married by 27, botox at 26" bullshit content anyway.)
I don't know if she really wants this business. It seems like a vanity project, another thing she can say she did. Even asking the readers for help identifying people in the front row is for show. Everyone knows there are a million and 2 sites available right now that are practically cataloguing FWeek as it happens and they ALWAYS identify the people in the front row. Strange indeed that the former editor-at-large for STAR appears to have zero grasp on who's who as far as celebrities go. More validation that when people said she was not only overpaid, but underqualified for the position, they were right.Oh and Julia, if you really hate fashion week STOP GOING or suck it up and cut down the number of shows you attempt to attend/crash when you obviously aren't truly there for the fashion. Enough with the sacrificial lamb act. Nooooo, she's NOT going for another excuse to dress up, photograph herself (you know, but to show her exes and "haters" that she's so important) and try again and again to become a celebrity... she's SUFFERING through it for the sake of the readers! Almost Julia, except not at all.
Another factor contributing to her decline in physical appearance is the hairstyle. Why does she always wear the headbands and/or wear the long ringlets with the bobby pins? I swear, less than a year ago she was styling her hair normally: in a ponytail sometimes, or just wearing it down and natural. Is her current style a wig, as someone suggested? If not, why does she wear the same outdated style day after day? She looks ridiculous next to Mary, whose hairstyle I don't LOVE, but at least it reflects youth and attention to current styles.Julia's 'do reflects a weird fascination with childhood, Charlotte York, Alice in wonderland and Blair Waldorf. Note that three people mentioned are fictional characters.
Mary has a prettier face, so it can handle even that haircut (which I think is too drastic) without looking horrible. Julia's face needs that hair DOWN.
