maybe i shouldn't even mention this since this post was done so long ago but Herrera is pronounced errera, The H is silent in most latin countries. I might be wrong since im not Venezuelan (i'm mexican, and Herrera is my last name) but i know i pronounce it with a silent H.

Pretty much the most amazing thing EVERRR. Also, I'm sort of tempted to just play a bunch of those uber-Frenchy sound bits one after another and set it as my voicemail greeting. "You have reached the voice mailbox of...AlBER ElBAZ for Laaahnviiihn!" A fun n' fashiony way to freak people out...

connie has a habit of cutting out the other person in these webisodes. this is annoying, even though she's adorable.

Hmm it seems like on some browsers, it crops the right side of the webisodes. Click on it to watch it on YouTube. You can see all of Marcus' cute face there :)

love it!!! i wana know how to pronounce "dries van noten" correctly. hahahaa.
geekbonchic
geekbonchic on January 16
But Belgians do a funny thing with the last word and kind of drop the "N" a bit. So it's like Dreeeeeez Van Outen.
EverybodyIsUgly
EverybodyIsUgly on January 16
Exactly like it sounds. Dreeze van Know-ten

did only parts of my comment go through ha ha?? I was trying to say that watanabe is a really common japanese family name so i guess it's natural for it to acquire its own english pronunciation with all the watanabes who go abroad, but in japan the last syllable is more like "bay" instead of "bee" and no one syllable is really emphasized. so, "wah-tah-nah-bay" instead of "wah-tah-NAH-bee"

lauren conrad shout out! i was just talking about this today in class! a girl gave a presentation & kept saying moschino "mo-chino" yo lemme get some mo' uh dat 'ccino. holla. and then there was a girl that gave a presentation about chanel cutting jobs & said "she" was doing it for such & such a reason. ah, the mystical she at chanel. also, did not know BOttega VENeta was pronounced like that.
EverybodyIsUgly
EverybodyIsUgly on January 16
Ahahhaa jesus christ, you should have asked them that? How embarrassing for them. Eep D:

super helpful <3 but you know, watanabe is a really common japanese family name so i guess it's natural for it to acquire its own english pronunciation with all the watanabes who go abroad, but in japan the last syllable is more like "bay" instead of "bee" and no one syllable is really emphasized. so, "wah-tah-nah-bay" instead of "wah-tah-NAH-bee" then again, my japanese suxx (despite the fact that i used to live in japan!)

nooo i love your webisodes! I seriously thought that Marchesa was like... Mar-cheese-a or something like that, and I was really surprised that you have to pronounce the TE in Rodarte... oh and Connie, what brand is your nail polish? I've been looking for a yellow nail polish that I don't have to apply five coats of and that don't make my nails look diseased....
_ANITA
_ANITA on January 19
it is essie's shorty pants, it is part of their neon collection, i believe
EverybodyIsUgly
EverybodyIsUgly on January 16
It's essie brand and I don't know which color it is, but essie makes pretty wonderful opaque nail polishes! two coats, baby
