Looks like reality TV personality Audrina Patridge is off to a roaring start in 2012 by being added to the cast of ABC's "Revenge" filming now, with episodes to come during the Spring Sweeps. But as Audrina did at the start of 2011 some major changes to her look and style have happened at the start of this year too!
Audrina looked her absolute best in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Audrina's bikini and fashion pictures from those years are iconic! When people think of Audrina Patridge those are the looks they think of. You can find most of those at various places throughout the web.
Audrina had 3 features that solidified her visual brand and celebrity... 1) An engaging, happy smile; 2) Gorgeous long, thick, hair; and 3) A slender, toned body with amazing cleavage. Sadly she has been dissecting herself since the start of 2011.
At the beginning of 2011 she went through a drastic reduction procedure that removed her amazing cleavage and left her flattened and sagging. When she decides to put some boost in her bust she still looks amazing but most of the time she doesn't and post reduction sagging detracts from her shape and style.
At the beginning of 2012 Audrina cut her hair into a shortened, stringy, thin style that makes her face look very different. Maybe some evil hairstylist at her favorite Nine Zero One salon convinced her to destroy her trademark hair. The thin shortened style has altered the shape of her face to the camera. Could also be the stylist at ABC's Revenge made her do that for her new role on “Revenge”, but the new hairstyle removed another important facet of Audrina's brand. A mistake regardless of the character she'll play on Revenge unless it's an ugly character of some sort. Wear a wig for filming, be a strong, familiar, iconic brand to promote the show and entice Audrina fans to become viewers.
Her smile remains in tact. Let's hope she doesn't do anything to that! When Audrina wants to look good, she certainly can as evidenced by her look at the AMA's. Nice cleavage, great dress, great hair, incredible celebrity style. But she doesn't seem to want to look good very often - only 3 instances in 2011.
At every appearance in Las Vegas and other events in 2011, where she used to look stunning every time, Audrina instead looked like some 40 year-old mom with high necklines, no cleavage, baggy, shapeless dresses, equaling plain and stodgy looks. In fact, at one appearance in a pink baggy dress, her stomach was her most prominent attribute. People thought she was pregnant. She was not preggers but it made the point - Audrina needs some boost to her bust to look shapely now. Someone needs to get Audrina a supply of Victoria's Secret "Gorgeous" bras for her appearances stat! She would consistently look much better!
Everybody gets a second chance in Vegas... Audrina has two appearances coming up, one at PURE inside Caesars Palace on Feb 18th and the other at the grand opening of The Sugar Factory inside the MGM Grand on March 2nd. We'll see then if this year truly is starting off with a bang for Audrina and her fans who have stood by her through many disappointing changes.
