Some of you that are not fashion nerds (but are TV nerds) may recognize the name “Leanne Marshall” — and that’s because she’s the winner of season 5 of Project Runway. Leanne was a favorite of mine that season, so I was very excited to see her show. As a mega fan of Project Runway, I’m always happy to see former contestants parlay their 15-minutes of fame into something real (not that the show was un-real).
But enough of the Project Runway gushing and on to Leanne’s collection. There was a lot of sheer material, flowy fabrics, and some sparkles. All the pieces also had Leanne’s signature feminine sensibility. Far from being show pieces, every look that went down the runway would belong in any fabulous fashionista’s closet. Well…maybe with skin-colored slips underneath some of the more sheer gowns. Because, you know, not all of us are comfortable leaving the house with just pasties and sparkly hot pants underneath sheer dresses.
Read on to see the some of my favorite look from the show.
