If Blair is looking for an internship with Indra Nooyi, I’d suggest she fix up her resume. I guess it's the teacher in me, but I couldn’t help but read it. It is too vague and lists her major as “undecided.” And did you see her volunteer work? What is this falcon thing? Sorry B, I would have a field day with my red pen if you turned this in to me.
On an up note, at least her beautiful Louis Vuitton suit makes for a passing grade. The embellished sleeves play nicely off of the cream silk bow blouse. Her hair and makeup look fabulous too. Now if someone would just pluck those eyebrows…
The job hunt continues downstairs chez Waldrof, with Blair calling on Dorota and the Minions for help. Clad in jewel tone coordinating outfits from what looks like the Contemporary floor at Neiman Marcus, these ladies pull out all the stops. I adore the patterned tights and their matching wavy hair. These Minions actually look sharp and polished. They’re hired!
Flow charts, laptops, fax machines, and smart phones- it’s like a real office. Of course if this were a real office, the Minions would be playing on Facebook in order to avoid finishing the Excel spreadsheet that is due by lunch. I hope Penelope has updated the Skills section of her C.V. accordingly.
Now on to more important things… Dorota, lose the Holly Hobby file folders. Those are the Crazy Cat Lady of office supplies.
Eleanor, I know that you are supposed to be a fashion icon. So perhaps you could sass up the outerwear? Don’t get me wrong, I love the cape with the fur collar but perhaps something a little less brown and plaid? She is fading into the woodwork- literally (her outfit blends right into that table behind her).
I think Serena might be rolling her eyes because Dan is wearing a skinny tie. I know S, I totally agree. If Dan would just loose the necktie the rest of his outfit would be perfect. Little Danny is growing up!!! Sadly, he isn’t mature enough to realize that his internship interview should take presidence over waiting around for a girl. Tisk tisk.
Off to hijack her mother’s client fitting, Blair is the epitome of elegance in her belted green Philosophy coat. While the paisley scarf is lovely, my eyes darted over to that Lanvin bag she is carrying. I think I might be suffering from Lanvin lust.
Now if Blair really wanted to make an impact during her faux internship with Waldorf Designs, she would have skipped the meeting with Indra Nooyi and hopped right over to Mrs. Blago. Lord knows Patti needs the help.
Dan, I am sorry to say this but I'm happy you missed your interview. The plaid shirt and the striped tie combo are leaving me cold. I know that it is your Grandfather’s tie, but B is right - it should have gone with him to the grave. I would also like to point out the shirts come in patterns other than plaid. Ever heard of stripes or checks?
I also want to have a brief little chat about your resume. Dropping it off in an unmarked envelope might not be the smartest idea. What if it accidentally gets confused with a forged affadavit discussing an “inappropriate” relationship with a teacher? Those kinds of mixups happen all the time.
Over at the Midwest Mogul Party, Blair looks lovely in an Oscar De La Renta Fall 2010 strapless sequined gown. Her Kotur Morley clutch and RichRocks ring are refined. The overall look is tasteful and chic.
Well if this Blair/ Dan budding friendship/ romance takes off, Eleanor is one step ahead of the game. She looks like a mother of the bride in this navy off the shoulder number. Can’t you just picture her dancing to YMCA and eating dry wedding chicken?
Side Note: I am excited by Eleanor’s Kate Middletonesque engagement ring. What a sparkling sapphire! Where has she been hiding this?
I am totally excited that B plans to become a fashion editor. I really hope that this results in a September Issue type episode with guest appearances by Anna Wintor and Grace Coddington.
