Fashion Show Recap: Sorry Johnny, But You're No Lanvin

It’s down to five designers in episode 10 of Bravo’s The Fashion Show, and only four will go on to show a collection in the final episode. After Daniella won the mini-challenge (draping silk charmeuse using only 12 pins), the prize was first pick of assistants for the main challenge.

Cue the return of Merlin, Haven, Angel, Andrew, and Keith.


For the big task, each designer had to create an evening gown that “makes whoever wears it feel like $1 million.” This also meant they had to use swarovski crystals in the design. Anna, who keeps getting better week after week, chose a risky, bright print that wowed the audience.


Unfortunately, (and stupidly), Johnny decided to rip off a Lanvin dress and Isaac sent him packing.


Daniella’s gray one-shoulder gown was the judges’ favorite (buy the Red Carpet Evening gown, $225), and while I loved the gray for its classic elegance–as did guest judge and Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey–I thought Anna’s gown was more red carpet memorable.

Yes, Anna is my favorite, if you haven’t caught on.


For an evening look that combines the best of both dresses, try Tadashi’s One-Shoulder Floral Gown ($408). The classic navy silk tucks and drapes to create a sexy shape, and the beaded organza shoulder detail is eye-catching yet more friendly than Swarovski bling.
