Hair-Bow is a Hair-Don't

08/18/2006 at 09:00 AM ET

Wednesday night, adorable Alison was attacked on Project Runway not only for her ill-conceived dress design, but also for her choice of hairstyle for her model (left). Derided for creating an unflattering “Minnie Mouse” effect, Alison tried to defend her choice of blond bow of hair perched on top of her model’s head but to no avail. Looks like the Tresemme stylists backstage weren’t the first ones to have this not so bright idea. Paris Hilton (middle) and Melissa George both wore the look (would you call it hair as hair accessory?) to events in 2005. Paris has been a little cartoonish lately, so maybe the judges weren’t as far off as you might think.

No way dude. I’m NOT a fan of Miss Paris normally, but I do think she’s pulling this look off better than the other two.

In a word: S C A R Y!!!!!

It’s gotta go it looks horrible!!

I agree with Beth. These celebrities have the best stylists in the world and they have to go with this trend? And I think it just looks rather strange. Only Minnie Mouse can pull off this look.

Colleen on

i actually think that it only looks good on Paris

Loved Allison! Her clothes were so cute. But this hairdo…in a word…ridiculous

I cant believe this… they do outlandish things on the runway all the time. Designers are either going for classic or new and fresh. and whats new and fresh will be classic someday, and they will need to start coming up with newer and fresher ideas. I’ve seen alot of hideous things up there, alot of things that made me shudder or grimace, but the bow is really not so bad. Not something I’d do with my hair, and probably something I’d laugh at in the mall or on the street or office, but on the runway…. you could do worse!

A bow made of hair is just…. well, gross.

I think that the hairbow is cute as long as it doesn’t sit on top of the head. It looks good on Paris and i think that if it is worn so then it is a fashion yes
