Tuesday Ten: Most Mispronounced Words in Fashion...

Fashion Week is in full swing and since were all fashion lovers here (really?!) I think now is the perfect time to give you guys a lesson in proper fashion pronunciations! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I hear Lanvin pronounced Laan-viin or Dolce & Gabbana whispered as doles and Gabbana…for the record, it’s dol-chey. To avoid embarrassing slip-ups I'm going to teach you ladies to how say these names and terms the right way. Here goes, remember to roll your tongue!
  1. Herve Leger - air-vey leg-jay
  2. Yves Saint Laurent - eeves sant la-rahn
  3. Louboutin - loo-boo-ton
  4. Proenza Schouler - pro-en-za skool-er
  5. Givenchy - shee-von-shee
  6. Versace - ver-sah-chee
  7. Louis Vuitton - loo-ee voo-ton
  8. Hermes - air-mez
  9. Haute Couture - oat co-toor
  10. Lanivn - lahn-vahn
Have fun! Let's face it, you'll sound more professional when you say it with a real accent. Luckily I'm taking my French GCSE! Sorry if I don't blog as much I usually do, GCSE's are very hard work so sorry guys but school first! I'll try and squeeze in my blog as much as I can :)
