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.

Paris Hilton looks like a character out of the Coppola version on Dracula with her hair in a bow made of hair, Gary Oldman as the older nonregenerated version of the count with his hair in knots on his head. Hideous. They all look awful including Alexandra, PR Alison’s model in the first photo and I think that’s the real reason Alison lost this challenge, the hideous Minnie Mouse hair.

The bow is for Minnie Mouse and Minnie Mouse Halloween costumes only.

I agree with Dee- it’s not a good style no matter WHO’S wearing it or how. I’m tired of all these ridiculous trends starting because ‘Paris’ or ‘Lindsay’ or ‘whoever’ wear or ‘say’ something stupid! Definitely a “hell no”!

Alyssa on

yeah , the whole bow thing ain’t working for me i think that trend should not have been even set!!

do us all a favor and just put your hair up in a bun!

It didn’t look horrible on Paris – with the hair pulled back less severly and the ‘bow’ worn in the back. Worn on top with the hair pulled severly back… ick.

The hair bow matches the bright dresses Paris has been wearing lately. I dont think she pulls it off at all.

I agree – this is an awful look. And far be it for me to defend Paris Hilton….whom I abhore, but she looks the least goofy of the 3. That’s not saying much.

Caitlin on

While this hairstyle is cool… is kinda ugly!

erika on

ewwwwwwwwww…bows should not be worn on your head unless they are a material that is not hair (ie… ribbon, plastic…etc)…
