The Fashion Show

Are you watching The Fashion Show?
It is not as good as Project Runway, but it does have its moments.
Tonight was the "design for real women" challenge complete with all the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth that always occurs when these prima donnnas have to design outside of their comfort zone.
The best part was Danielle and Haven complaining about the size of their models asses.
This from 2 gals who are on the larger side of the scale.
Do they never design for themselves?
Danielle's ass is way bigger then the "real woman" she was complaining about.
Except she managed to pull her shit together and make a great dress.

I would LOVE to own this dress.
It was perfect for one of us fluffy gals.
Too bad it does not come in plus sizes....oh, and it is over $300.

"Together this coat and dress duo give you a sophisticated alternative to a suit for any occasion. A coat this cool will make you hope for a chill in the air. Oversized snaps, diamond inserts, funky flip-up collar and a bold black belt add attitude to the coat's sleek silhouette. And the dress's classic shape makes it an easy choice to accessorize for day or night. Its boning structure, inner elastic and drop waist flatter the figure and elongate the form while the circle skirt completes the slimming illusion. The dress is 88% polyester, 10% viscose and 2% spandex. The coat is 100% Cotton."

I love that it has boning at the waistline.
Great dress.

P.S. I LOVED the outfit Fern Michaels was wearing tonight.

I know exactly what you mean, I to watched this episode last night and I was thinking the whole time wtf is wrong with her. I bet she has made plenty of things for her self. Honestly I liked recos design better but this one did flatter her model. 325 dollars what the hell are they thinking way to expensive. I 2 miss project runway but I guess this show will have to do. ♥darla
