Wednesday's Winning Looks - Fashion Star

Wednesday, April 03, 2013 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

A few weeks ago NBC's hit show Fashion Star staged a competition in which the contestants designed garments that would flatter models of all shapes and sizes.  The episode titled "Something for Everyone" featured models, both petite and full figured, 

showcasing the looks designed by the contestants.  The aim was to come up with a look that was democratic and flattering; something that regular customers of all sizes would love to wear.  At the end of the show, two designers came out on top as their garments were purchased by Express buyer Erika De Salvatore.  

The first purchase was the Geo Tunic, a loose-fitting blouse with a geometric print and keyhole back, designed by Cassandra Hobbins.  Check it out on the runway:

 De Salvatore was excited that Hobbins created such a unique outfit for the show and a truly flattering look that any woman would love to wear.  "I thanked her for making a top.  Most people made dresses, but tunics do really well at Express and she put her own spin on it!" De Salvatore said.  The Geo Tunic is now available in Express stores for $39.90 in Soft Ivory, Warm Stone and Cayman Blue. 

The second look purchased by De Salvatore was a Peplum Dress by designer Hunter Bell.  The dress features a high neckline and cinched waist, a look that is forgiving and flattering on any body shape.  The look is “the perfect combination of two of Express’s favorite trends: peplum and leopard.” De Salvatore said. 

Here's the dress on the runway:
 And the version that is now available in Express stores for $78:
