I’m addicted to American Idol – there. I said it. I’ve been watching since the end of Season 1 and must immediately come home from Pilates on Tuesdays and plant myself in front of the TV. Besides the music, I enjoy watching the fashion and how the contestants progress (um, they get stylists?) after several weeks into the competition. And of course former Idol Carrie Underwood is one of my absolute fav style stars out there – she can rock anything.
Did you watch last night (I cried when Scott was eliminated – so sad!)? I thought Kellie Pickler’s performance was sort of similar to how she sounded before any training (shouldn’t she have progressed some by now?). But, needless to say, she’s just so darn cute. Easily a girl crush, right? And last night she looked amazing! I loved her silver strapless lace mini paired with gold strappy heels (see, you can pair silver and gold and make it look good!). And I give her kudos for wearing a designer not everyone may have heard of – Ina Soltani, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. She’s based in L.A., but hails from Bosnia and that’s where she gets her dramatic fashion inspirations. And while the dress is super-darling, those extra push-ups Kellie’s been doing don’t hurt either. Style Tip: Let the dress and shoes speak for themselves – no jewelry or extra bells and whistles here. Keep it simple and dazzle everyone!
