Fashion Star – Out of the Box April 17, 2012
By J.K. Holland
The designers are told to show some versatility and get out of your comfort zone.
Not Our Fashion Star: Barbara Bates
Most Favorite Sold Item: Kara Laricks’s Long Layered Dresses. I would rock the black and pin striped item with sky high wedges.
Favorite Sold Item #2: Luciana Scarabello’s Cropped Jacket. Perfect for Summer, Spring and Fall.
Favorite Unsold Item: None. The buyers were right.
Most Hated Design: Barbara Bate’s Color blocking print bohemian dress.
Least Understood Sold Design: Ross Bennett’s vintage lingere was too high-waisted to look good on anyone except tall and thin models.
So Over It Design: Orly Shani’s gimmicky twofer designs.
Cattiest Comment: Orly Shani remarking about Ross Bennett’s vintage lingere, “ When you do the most research, you end up not doing things your own way.” Ross got the last laugh with a $50K bid and Orly didn’t with her usual twofer Confederate jacket.
