Yesterday, I had a sneak peek into Bravo’s Mad Fashion and Fashion Hunters season finale airing tonight and some quality time with the casts from both shows.
What to expect? For Mad Fashion, watch Chris March and his team in action as they make the most amazing black McQueen inspired evening gown for Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Chrissy Teigen, for her first major red carpet appearance (with,ahem, boyfriend John Legend) to the 2011 Met Ball. Since the event already happened, I don’t feel bad about showing you the dress. The train is to die for!!! It’s made from thousands of Swarovski crystals!!! And despite a little drama over which collar Chrissy should wear, the feather one she ends up going for is stunning. Although wait until you see the other neck piece — It’s so Mcqueen with a Chris March twist;). And considering the theme of this years Met Ball was Alexander McQueen it would have been perfect!
The only frustrating part of the episode is wanting to tell Chrissy to have her own opinions when it comes to what she wears! Input from your man is one thing (and important), completely letting him control it is another. Fortunately for her, she could make a paper bag look designer… and John has great taste. Talk about a handsome (and well dressed) couple.
MAD FASHION “The Met Ball” episode season finale airs tonight, December 6, 10:00pm ET/PT)
As for Fashion Hunters, Bravo is airing back to back new episodes starting at 10:30pm, followed by the season finale. Watch as the Second Time Around team plans a charity event. First stop, Kelly Bensimon and Alex Ray Joel’s closet, followed by Peter Som’s showroom for items to auction off in benefit of Generosity Water. With a goal of $6,000 (enough to build a well in Haiti that will give water to 1,000 locals for 20 years), the team pulls out the big guns (a surprise celebrity dress!) to reach their target. Be prepared to roll your eyes as Ambria starts talking about Prada bags in Haiti, and drool over an amazing vintage accordion purse — which is another reason why second hand shopping is the best. You never know what you’ll find!
FASHION HUNTERS “Generosity Gems” episode airs tonight 10:30pm ET/PT, followed by the season finale!
