This Week in the Voice: March 22, 2012
In this week’s feature, hopefully summer is still a couple months away, because it’s time for spring fashion!
If vibrant patterns are fashion statements, then their absence can create an equally distinctive look. Solid-colored slacks, skirts, and tops can magnify the effect of your favorite hue from this season’s primary-colored palette—bright reds, deep greens, and Smurf blue. Life is too short for taupe, and browns and greens prove vague and uninspiring.
For News, Connor Jones reports that the University will likely implement the Designated Suppliers Program, a system that requires University apparel suppliers to verify certain workers’ rights, in the coming months.
In the Sports pages, Kevin Joseph introduces Hoyas to Georgetown’s top men’s basketball recruit D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera. Steve Smith, Smith-Rivera’s coach at basketball superschool Oak Hill Academy, said, “He’s better than advertised, and most kids that come out of high school are not. D’Vauntes, he doesn’t really have any weaknesses.”
In Leisure, Heather Regen raves about The Hunger Games, boldly saying the movie “conveys with complex cinematography and precise casting what prose marketed to eleven-year-olds could not.” And with theaters in the area quickly selling out, may the odds be ever in your favor.
And finally in Voices, Tim Shine decries the administration’s decision to dramatically scale back Georgetown Day, likening it to its elimination of the 1990s-era Block Party and the nascent Healy Pub proposal.
