Zee Fashionista: Tongue (un)tied


Tongue (un)tied

Ok, now remember that scene in 'The Devil Wears Prada' where Andy (Anne Hathaway) can't spell Dolce & Gabbana (lo & behold!), or that famous scene in 'Showgirls' where Nomi pronounces Versace as "Vur-says"...tragic!!! So in order to prevent those unfashionable mishaps, I have compiled a list of the some of the most frequently mispronounced labels and designers, as well as the CORRECT pronunciation:

Balenciaga: Bah-len-see-AH-gah

Bulgari: Ball-gah-ree

Burberry Prorsum: Bur-bur-ree Pror-some

Christian Louboutin: Loo-boo-tin

Christian Dior: Dee-yor

Commes des Garcons: Comb day Garse-on

Givenchy: Jhee-von-shee

Hermes: Air-mez

Issey Miyake: Eees-Ay Me-Yah-Kee

Jean Paul Gaultier: Sj-awn Paul Goat-ee-ay

Missoni: Miss-own-ee

Moschino: Mo-ski-no

Versace: Ver-saw-chee

Yves saint Laurent: Eve-san-Laur-ahn

For the full list, hit up -->http://www.theglamazondiaries.com/.../fashion-101-lesson-in-designer-name.html

Now we can all speak fashionably...
