Fashion Show Recap: Honoring Fashion Greats Dishonors A Few

June 26, 2009 by SheFindsJenn

How much do you know about historical fashion houses? That was the task designers in episode 8 of Bravo’s The Fashion Show had to face in this week’s mini-challenge. The trivia competition whittled down the group to Anna–go figure, she’s a teacher–whose prize was to assign each designer one of the legends. Their main challenge? Create a garment in the aesthetic of their designer.

Obviously, Anna gave her friends choice assignments–Haven got Yves Saint Laurent, Johnny had Versace, and Anna took Chanel. She purposely gave Halston to Reco, who didn’t know the label at all and who made the mistake of putting one of his signature corsets on what should have been a simple, flowing dress.

Haven’s terrible brown wool pant suit was a fail as well, but she should have known better since she was well-versed in YSL style. This was egregious enough to send her home.

Johnny and his Versace-inspired mini-dress got rave reviews from the audience and the judging panel. Although he used faux leather in an attempt to be environmentally friendly, he still captured the fit, gold bling, and sensuality of the designer’s intent. Buy the racy little cocktail dress on Bravo’s website ($195).

Versace in its newest incarnation is still fierce, but slightly softer. This Versace Star Back Cocktail Dress ($2,380) is still sexy but not hard. The flowing silhouette is matched with a deep V front, and a suggestive sheer back. Or for a more budget-friendly option, try this v-neck dress by Twelfth Street. ($130).
