Styl'D's Tara: 'I Know What Looks Good On Female Bodies'

Throughout this season of Styl'D, the junior assistants will be watching each episode and blogging about their reactions. Below, check out what Tara wrote after seeing Ep. 2.

I was so excited to work my first job with Eric, though I wasn't excited about being ranked last place. Oh well -- the senior stylists thought it was impossible to rank me without working a job yet anyway.

I remember being at Eric’s house and this mysterious man suddenly appeared. And then … wait for it … EXTREME CLOSE-UP! Watching yourself on television is bad enough, but when there are Top Chef Masters-style interview shots of your face, you just want to crawl under a rock and fade into obscurity in peace.

Pulling looks for Colbie without knowing her sizes was a daunting task. I really wanted to impress Eric on my first job, but I felt like I was blowing it before it even started. Still, I ended up pulling the winning dress! Cody (who regaled all of us with the heavily rehearsed story of his life!) said that I got lucky? I don’t think so -- I’m a girl. I know what looks good on female bodies. He told me that I shouldn’t pull that dress! His choices weren’t too great. I think he was just bitter he was dressed like an extra from Fiddler On the Roof.

I know I’m not the only one that always kind of hopes that in real life, celebrities smell like hot trash and spit when they talk. But there is a reason that they are celebrities: they are perfect, dammit! Colbie is this tall, gorgeous Amazon who is as sweet as can be. It was a delight getting to dress her. It’s so satisfying knowing that a look you helped put together walked down the red carpet. It’s such a rush!
