Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

Welcome back. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays.

Thanks to Prime Creative, the site has been redesigned to give it a fresh look for the New Year.

Amrit Birdi developed the site to make Prime Creative’s and my vision come alive.

Have a look around and check out the new pages and features.

BDOTW will get that much easier because the celebrities with the most Likes and Tweets at the end of the week will be added to the poll.

An exciting year of fashion lies ahead with Awards Season kicking off next week with the People’s Choice Awards, followed by the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Golden Globe Awards and many more in-between before the Oscars in February.

During that time we will also get to see lots of new designs during Spring 2012 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week this month and the Fall 2012 Ready-to-wear collections next month.

  14. Francesca January 2, 2012 at 14:09 #

    When I followed the link from Facebook, I thought you posted about some other site, LOL. I really love the new design! Best wishes for 2012, FC!

  15. Aurélien January 2, 2012 at 14:09 #

    Yeah ! Great website design :D
    Have a wonderful year ! January and February are by far the most exciting months !!

  16. DSI January 2, 2012 at 14:11 #

    Have a great year ahead,FC :) Glad that you have sprung back into action. The site lay-out is refreshing. Would love a splash of red somewhere,though ;)

  17. Iris January 2, 2012 at 14:35 #

    wowza! new year, new site, new fashion… have a great one, FC!

  18. Victoria January 2, 2012 at 14:49 #

    Blessed new year to you FC! :) May this year bring great fashion and even more opportunities for you. I’m so glad you’re back and I’m loving the update to the layout! :)

    Here’s to a great year ahead!

  19. Rahel January 2, 2012 at 14:58 #

    The site looks stunning. But will it be fair with the tweets? I know from some people that they tweet 24/7 to make something or someone a trend on twitter. That way the person with the biggest fanbase will get in the BDOTW list.

    • Fashion Critic January 2, 2012 at 15:22 #

      Thank you….lets see how it goes. If the tweet thing doesn’t work then I will revert back to comments

  20. mm January 2, 2012 at 15:01 #

    Happy New Year! The site is so fresh and so clean, clean…

    Loves it!

  21. Dee January 2, 2012 at 15:13 #

    This is a great layout, FC! Every element of the design blends in so well, and I love the red “reply” buttons!

  22. fyka January 2, 2012 at 15:15 #

    love..love.. this new look FC .. i’ve got a feeling i’m gonna be more addicted to this blog than before (if that’s even possible ) :)

  23. Pedro January 2, 2012 at 15:24 #

  33. lifeisdolce January 3, 2012 at 00:07 #

    beautiful theme! congrats fc and may the new year be just as fruitful!

  34. Teleholic January 3, 2012 at 00:22 #

    WOAH! FC, I’m so so so so proud of you!!! What a shock, to open it up and see a new banner. I thought I did something wrong, but nope, you just did something so so right, I’m so happy for you! Once again, congratulations on your success and I can’t wait to get started with another year of fashion in all its glory. Glad you’re back! :)

  35. Heather January 3, 2012 at 00:24 #

    Totally +1 Sasha! Great job FC–I am SOOOOOOO excited that you are back! :)

  42. TeaAtTwo January 3, 2012 at 04:27 #

    I’m so happy you’re back. excited for my 1st full year of RCFA! Getting used to some parts of new layout but it does look slick. :)

  43. Ev January 3, 2012 at 04:51 #

    Love the new layout, it looks so fresh! Would you be able to make the font a little bigger by any chance? The text from the previous layout was the perfect size!

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 06:49 #

      The font looks the same to me.

      How much smaller is it for you?

  44. Naomi January 3, 2012 at 06:41 #

    Though my first reaction was “…the hell?”
    I like the decision to change the site’s looks – as in the world of fashion, you shouldn’t get stuck in a rut, and always keep on moving and changing.
    Happy new year, FC, and thanks for all your hard works, which brings a lot of joy to many of us!

  45. yumey January 3, 2012 at 07:27 #

    Welcome back n Happy New Year FC!
    I love the new look on RCFA.
    missed your fashionable posts these couple of days but hope you had fun holidays :)

  46. Aideen January 3, 2012 at 07:44 #

    Congrats on the new site, you can see all the work you’ve put in, love the popular posts section, your site has just gone from strength to strength over the years, all thanks to your commitment. Just wanted to say thanks again!

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 08:43 #

      Thanks Aideen x

  47. Martin January 3, 2012 at 07:54 #

    Must be gratifying to see all your hard work has paid off. Great job.

    Quick question, Fashion Critic – I haven’t had a problem posting comments from my iPad since the site overhaul, but when I go to post comments from my laptop I am unable to do so because there is no SUBMIT button coming up under the comment box. Has anyone else told you that they have this problem?

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 12:42 #

      Yes it is thank you.

      That is strange I will look into this. We are still fixing other issues, so I will add this too.

      Thanks.

  48. slashdot January 3, 2012 at 07:55 #

    Well, when I first entered the website my reaction was: hey, did I mistype? this can’t be right!
    But it’s great, it looks a lot more airy and fresher.
    Hurray to the new start!

  49. Ayesha January 3, 2012 at 08:05 #

    awesome new look, FC…and really looking forward to the months to come,my favourite time of the year!

  50. Mimi January 3, 2012 at 08:09 #

    Happy New Year FC!!!
    thank God you’re back!
    I don’t like the new website design, I guess it’s just that I have to get used to it…
    Can’t wait to see what 2012 brings us!

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 08:43 #

      Wow. That was a kick in the teeth after 6 months of hard work and many sleepless nights.

      Sorry but I wish you had kept your dislike of my site design to yourself. You have no idea what I have gone through, effort, money and patience to get this live and it is still not completely finished.

  51. Sharon January 3, 2012 at 09:40 #

    Wow – what a surprise! I just checked to see if you were back yet and for a moment thought I was in the wrong place. What a beautiful clean design to start the new year. Welcome back, FC!

  52. Mol January 3, 2012 at 10:34 #

    So glad u are back FC – it’s the middle of the night where I am so just a brief check in, I love love what u have done, it’s so easy to check everything out, so classy and professional. Bravo to all ur hard work!

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 12:11 #

      Thanks Mol

      Glad you like it

  53. Binkie January 3, 2012 at 12:54 #

    I love your new site design FC… very fetch! x

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 13:20 #

      LOL…thanks Binike

  54. Linda January 3, 2012 at 13:58 #

    FC, your website looks so professional, modern and polished. Congratulations on the amazing new layout! (As I find change hard, I must admit I do miss the red banner and, from days long past, I believe there was a high heeled shoe – I’m nostalgic I guess). You and your team have done a wonderful job and the site looks beautiful.

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 14:19 #

      Yes the red shoe was very early days. I think that was the second of 4 refreshes.

  55. What Is The New Black January 3, 2012 at 14:09 #

    The site looks great!

  56. Simon January 3, 2012 at 14:27 #

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 14:44 #

      thank you xx

  57. Ev January 3, 2012 at 17:19 #

    It looks 1 or 2 point sizes smaller. It could all be relative though.

  58. GGG January 3, 2012 at 17:52 #

    I didn’t realize this site could get any better… And yet, it is! It’s a gorgeous layout… Brava FC! Happy New Year!

    • Fashion Critic January 3, 2012 at 20:34 #
