Recently I have been thinking: Nick really have made the Winx like Earth girl teenagers, haven't they?
In previous seasons cellphones were hardly ever used. Ever. The only time they used them before Season 5 was once or twice in Season 4, like in Season 4 Episode 11 when Roxy said: "Have you ever heard of cellphones?" But now the Winx are continuously using them.
They're from the Magical Dimension, right? Surely the would have a much cooler, un-earthly way of communitcating, like telepathy or something.
Continuing on the technology theme, the Winx are always using technology for a resource, like a typical teenage girl. Previously, especially in Season 1 and 4, the Winx would of used books for infomation. But it seems that technology has taken over.
Another thing that makes them more 'teenage earth girl'-like is their clothes. For example, the Harmonix. I've heard that the Harmonix was inspired by wedding dresses, but I think it more reassembles the 'A-Symmetrical' style that was very popular worldwide.
|Notice the long back at the front and short at the back?|
|Kinda like the trend of 2012?|
Even the trendy outfits reassemble some of the popular trends over the years. Like Stella's ruffled dress. It has been something we've seen here, even I own a ruffled dress.
|Not exactly the same, but you get my point|
And remember the big skirt-and-legging phase? That's obvious in the Sirenix and Tecna's trendy outfit.
|Oh and I've seen that open-toe look heaps as well|
Jumpsuits have been reasonably popular in the fashion world, and Aisha is wearing a jumpsuit.

So, have Nick made the Winx too earth-girl-like? I'll let you decide, but I think so.
