Vampire Inspired Runway

A coincidence? Just when we become helplessly consumed by the Twilight fantasy to the point of secretly hoping to become a vampire (vegetarian of course), we discover that the look is totally in vogue. How convenient! Was this a coincidence? Or did the Twilight craze inspire Fall 08 runway?

One might argue that we’ve seen this look before–pale and gangly with dark under-eye circles. However, that wasn’t the same. That was the coked-out look. This time designers took away the messy, flowing hair and instead, the hair is pulled back into a slick bun–vampires. The message is clear. So, let us celebrate our natural paleness and darker hair, hold the self-tanner and cease the hair bleaching please.

And…I just had to stick this one in.
