The City

Recently, I came across this MTV reality show called The City by chance and managed to watch the entire first season across two days (although I could have watched it all in a day since each ep is only 20mins long). The City follows the life of a girl named Whitney Port when she moves to New York to work for Diane von Furstenberg. I wiki-ed the show and found out that it is a spin-off of another MTV reality series called The Hills, Season 5 currently showing in the US.

The City is like a mish-mash of the fashion industry and Hollywood all packed in one show. There's the best friend, the musician bf, the bitchy socialite, models and endless fashion shows and parties to attend.

Olivia (the socialite), Whitney, Erin (Whitney's best friend)

What I liked about the show was how they showcased alot of different songs whether from well-known or the lesser-known music artistes throughout different parts of each episode, and somehow each song they played reflected the mood of that particular moment that was happening. And of course, the fashion spread that appeared in the show.

Love Whitney's crocheted headband!

I'm just alittle amazed at how the characters seem to eat out all the time and check out new clubs every other night and still managed to stay fresh and energised for work the next day! I guess that's what New York's all about - The City that never sleeps!
