Sigh…the latest season of The Hills has come to an end. I am a late comer to this show, I only started watching the middle of this season and had to catch up on what I missed by watching the DVDs. I found myself relating to the characters – I myself having scored educational and eye opening internships at fashion magazines and have since been trying to get ahead in this demanding and very exclusive biz. But the thing that stands out for me, as always is the clothes themselves.
Having lived on the Atlantic side of North America my whole life, I love seeing California style – the breezy, cool and effortless looks that these girls rock every episode was a treat to see. While they are still a little too young to have perfected their look and give up their dependence on the visible “status” bag, in time these girls will come into their own.
The finale party saw the whole crew walk the red carpet and there were some definite hits and one very definite miss.
Lauren Conrad kept is simple and sweet in this gathered hem grey dress – this silhouette is a staple of hers and she really works the comfortable chic style. The only thing I would have gotten rid of is the superfluous tie at the side – a little too much for such a simple dress.
Audrina Patridge was eye catching in this little cobalt blue pleated dress – thumbs up!
Sweet Whitney tried to be a little adventurous in a polka dotted number that just made me instantly think of Minnie Mouse. But I love Whitney so I can forgive her!
And lastly our major fashion MISS of the evening Miss Heidi Montag. This look is Playboy bunny gone wrong – at least they are doing it in an ironic way. This dress is just a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Sorry Heidi bad taste in men AND in clothes!
