Tyra Banks Has It All

Last night I watched some of the 19th season of America's Next Top Model.

I haven't watched the CW model drama in a couple of seasons,  but this year's concept held my channel surfing attention:  Models from America are pitted against models from the UK. And in a twist, the model's from the UK are alumnas from the British version of America's Top Model while the US contestants have hardly any modeling experience.

This should be a season full of catfights and high-staged fashion drama.



In other news, Banks is a graduate of Harvard Business School.   Read about it in Sideshow here. Congrats, ma'am!

Now that's really model behavior.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
