The Fashion Show Recap: Isaac And America Pick A Winner (Who Happens To Be My Favorite)

Since Bravo’s The Fashion Show is still charting its own course away from comparisons to Project Runway, the second part of the finale used a reunion show to review the season and make us wait one more hour to find out the winner.

But unlike most of these raucous Bravo reunion episodes, the format was highly orchestrated and didn’t feel very organic. Contestants spoke in turn, and it didn’t seem like it was really fun to get back together.

What was worse, the three finalists–Daniella, Anna, and James Paul–sat through retrospectives of their journeys on the show, anxiously waiting while Isaac, Kelly, Fern, and Harper’s Bazaar EIC Glenda Bailey bantered about Haven’s love of shorts.

In the end, though, each of the three finalists won something. James Paul, whose dress won praise in the first episode, was revealed as the best-selling item on the site. It even sold out. Daniella won the $10,000 Judges’ Choice Award. And of course, Anna’s “to die for” collection took home the $125,000 grand prize with 56% of the audience vote.

It’s available for sale on BravoTV.com.

Anna’s use of color and long, pretty silhouettes were some of the things that gave her viewer raves, and this season’s maxi dresses follow that same aesthetic. The T-Bags Long Dress ($225) is reminiscent of Anna’s winning piece via its soft, colorblock jersey and ruffled tiers coming off a halter top. The Victoria’s Secret Halter Bra Top Maxi Dress ($108) also uses the halter design to create a feminine neckline, showing off sexy shoulders.
