Last week on Lookbook Hannah and Cleo hung out for lunch and Cleo started her plan for Hannah ruin. What will Cleo do this week to further mess with Hannah and ruin her fashion blog dreams before they really take off?
Hannah and Cleo have a phone conversation as Hannah prepares her next look for her Lookbook. After asking for a sneak peek at her next look, Cleo completely tears it apart, saying that she should go for something ‘more elegant’. Hannah tries to argue saying that isn’t really her style but Cleo cuts in (of course) and says that you have to change to take the next step in your fashion career. Cleo also endorses criticizing her photographer, making sure that Hannah, as the blogger, is asking for what she really wants. I highly doubt Mark is going to appreciate being told what to do much!
On the shoot you can feel the tension/internal conflict Hannah is Avignon, snapping at Mark when he simply offers her help. It appears as though Hannah found something slightly elegant in her closet but it is hard to tell with the leather jacket she is wearing over it. It appears as though she is trying to do elegant while also maintaining her casual vibe. New flash sweetie, it kind of didn’t work too well, especially with the dress looking a little neon Big Bird. Mark tries to brush of Hannah’s attitude as her being tired and direct the shot but Hannah is having none of that, seizing control and snapping at Mark all diva like with every frame. Finally Mark gives up, handing over the camera card and walking away.
Post-shoot Hannah is reviewing the photos at home when her brother walks in all parental, asking her if she’s doing her school work, calling her fashion blog a pipe dream. Hannah goes on the defensive, saying that the fashion blog makes her happy, to which her brother replies, “Yeah, you look so happy right now,” and walks away.
It looks like Hannah is falling victim to the fashion world curse. She is perhaps too easily influenced and manipulated to survive too long in this world with the likes of people like Cleo around who, in reality, is just jealous of Hannah.
Tune in to episode 6 next week, May 6th, to see if her brothers speech woke Hannah up so she can regain control of her life until she is left unhappy and alone.
