On Your Marks, Get Set

Recapping this week's Gristides challenge!


On your marks .... get set ... darlings, Gristides? I love that they are reenacting previous challenges. I only wish that the contestants had been more creative. This is where the chef in me comes out -- a little seaweed, some shrimp skin, and a few lobster tails, and voila!!! Or better yet an escargot corset ...

A dress for a couture collector, but a tablecloth, OMG!!! Anyone can use a tablecloth. Actually I think the rubbish bag bit is hilarious!!!! I must say Heidi looks brilliant in McQueen's red dress. I only wish that they had cut it from the waist instead of shortening it from the bottom. It has such interesting detail. OH well .... I wonder when I will have the honour of dressing fraulein Klum. She is so stunning.

I have never seen Tim so irritated. Poor darling!

It appears that Jerry was at a loss. He made a complete look, even though it was not really what they were looking for. He tried instead of making excuses. I have to say Daniel and Korto really impressed me. I liked Wes' work -- that shoulder detail and the back bow, though done a million times for Spring '07, is very chic.

As I stand here draping my finale dress for my fashion show in September, I find the element of rubbish bags appalling. I apologize but goth and rock and roll clothes are so beautiful. I feel for someone who thinks that anyone besides Belinda Carlisle in 1982 would wear a rubbish bag. Thank god that was before I was born. Ha! Sorry!!!


Darlings, I love that Scarlett has returned. He is the epiphany of charm! And so incredibly talented. I am excited to see what this season brings. There are some real characters but they all seem so incredibly talented.

OMG -- what was Suede thinking? They had so much time and so much to choose from. I would like to know how Daniel's model sat to get her hair done in that amazing plastic cup creation.

All I can say is I hope that Blayne and Daniel go far -- they are the most artistic in the group. Wes, I think, will do well also and I am rooting for Korto. Darlings, she has an eye for colour, and silhouette. Well intil next week.

Chin-Chin ...

P.S. Kelli, that was genius.

On The Road

Book tour updates, be sure to stop by if you can!

Hey kiddos!

The book tour for Fashion Inside Out is going GREAT! Big thanks to all those who have already come out to show their support to me, and to the book; I'm eternally grateful! I hope that you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I'm still on the road for another week or so with MANY stops along the way. Because I'm typing this from the airport terminal (waiting for my flight to San Francisco to board) I can't post all the rest of the stops, so check out my Web site www.danielvosovic.net for all the times and locations.

I love you all and hope to see you sometime soon! Have a great weekend (pleeeeease don't put me next to the screaming baby ...)

Daniel xx
