Psst. Come here.
I have to tell you something. Come closer.
I love Fashiontrance.
Yes. I do. I love this show. I love watching skinny women walk in expensive clothes. I love it especially when I've had a bad day and am annoyed at the world. It's relaxing. Watching this show requires little or no effort. Watching Lost, my favorite show, takes brain power. Watching Fashiontrance does not.
Some of the clothes are great. Some are butt-ugly. I can sit and watch and pick out all the things I would wear, if only I had money and a pre-mom body. I love seeing how ridiculous the models look in the bad outfits. I love seeing the models suffer wardrobe malfunctions. Most of all, I love the on-screen text.
While the aforementioned skinny women are strutting in haute couture, amusing quotes and facts appear onscreen. Common factoids include lists of celebrities in attendance at the shows and the locations of the designers' boutiques. Then you get incredibly silly and trite quotes from the designers themselves: "Blahblah McDesignerperson says her clothes celebrate the individuality and sensuality of women". "Yadayada O'Fashionista is inspired by art and music". One designer said she likes to design clothes for "women who laugh and cry". Yeah, like nobody does those things.
There should be a Fashiontrance channel. The show runs on the Style network among all those makeover shows but I think we need a channel featuring prancing lookalike stick figures all day long. I really do.
I loved this show. Unfortunatly it has not been available in the Time Warner Network STYLE for a while. I MISS it! Houston please put it back on the air
Keep up the great work on your blog. Best wishes WaltDe
