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.

For my gr. 2 first communion I had my hair in a bow but it was more on the back of my head and had curls coming out the bottom. At the time it looked gorgeous and I loved it. On the top of the head and on an adult kinda looks a bit rediculous. 15 years ago though everyone thought it was so cute but like I said I was a child.

haha, it’s funny: my mom used to wear hair-bows in ’90s. i was young girl then and i thought: “wow, mommy looks so beautiful”. now i’m ashamed of my thoughts and photos where i’m with my mom when she was wearing that nonsense:D

It looks great on Paris. Paris always knows how to throw herself together properly.

Is this a joke? That is just rediculous. If I actually ran into someone with their hair like that I would not be able to hold back the uncontrollable laughter.
