Marie Claire's Fashion Mis-Statements

Regardless of my previous post on the state of Marie Claire, I did get a kick out of their Fashion Mis-Statments. I have to admit it helped me pronounce some of these fashion designers' names properly. I have a tendency to formulate my own pronunciations. Here are some of my mis-prounciations:

ANDREW GN \jen\...I always thought it was like GIN

DRIES VAN NOTEN \dreez van no-ten\...always pronounced it like dries (dries in the sun)

PETER SOM \sahm\...apparently its like psalm, so much for sawm

THAKOON \ ta-koon\...thank god for this because I've been saying tha (like thank)
