Whoa! Winning Look From ‘Fashion Star’ Sells Out In One Hour!
Last night, a new Project Runway-esque reality show, Fashion Star, premiered last night and it may actually give its fashion predecessor a good run for their money. The new fashion reality show features 11 designer-wannnabes showcasing their designs on the runway in front of three famous mentors and actual store buyers. Here’s what makes this show very different – the store buyers actually vote them off AND you can actually buy the winning designs the very next day. Intense.
Of course, these famous mentors (a very slim Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and Designer John Varvatos) still have vital roles in the show where they critique the designers’ clothes, but ultimately the retail store buyers have the final say. We don’t mean small, dinky stores – they’re actually huge buyers, buyers from H&M, Macy’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue, where they actually bid on the desgins. Don’t forget that Elle Macpherson also looked amazing as the show’s host.
There were 10 winning looks from last night’s premiere (which are all affordable except the argyle-sequined skirt which costs $350), but the crown may have to go to Sarah Parrout’s cutout mini dress, which sold out online in less than an hour earlier today over at H&M! Why wouldn’t it? It’s only $19.95 and comes in wo awesome shades: bright aqua and subtle black.
Don’t worry, you can still get your hands on the sold out piece over at the stores! Make sure to check out the other winning looks at Macy’s and Saks as well. They’re just as great and affordable.
See all the winning looks below! What do you think of them, Win or fail?
