Since Naima got voted off Idol last week we thought we wouldn’t have as many fashion mishaps to report.  However Gwen Stefani, this week’s Idol “guest fashion stylist”, proved us wrong and made sure we still had much to discuss.  Gwen dressed the girls from the final 9 Idol contestants in her L.A.M.B. collection, with rather unfortunate results…

Lauren Alaina’s baggy, gingham diaper shorts win for the worst look of the night.  As if the voluminous short-shorts weren’t bad enough in their own right, their light color acted like a giant highlighter to Lauren’s hips – just what every curvy gal wants – a style that accentuates her “problem areas”.  Yeah!  Lauren’s hair also fell victim to the Stefani style.  It looks like a picture of us in the 80‘s. Thank goodness that was in the days before you posted pictures to Facebook – so we’ve had plenty of time to burn the photos and destroy the evidence.  Too bad Lauren didn’t get the same chance.

Haley Reinhart’s outfit looked more like it was from the Silence of the L.A.M.B.S. collection. The leather leggings were obviously made for a much taller gal, as they bunched down her leg, making her gams look more like mutton chops than long, lean sexy limbs.  The bandage-style stilettos just served to further mimic the wrinkle theme straight down to her toes.  The Jane-of-the-jungle-styled dress didn’t do anything for her figure or win her any style snaps either.  Thank goodness Gwen didn’t seem to have any input on Haley’s lovely curly hair, as it seemed to be her only saving grace.

And now playing in the Lounge…the groovy Paul McDonald – don’t forget to be generous with your tips and song requests.

Too bad Jacob Lusk didn’t take a longer look at “The Man in The Mirror” before he came out to sing this song.  He looks like he should be on top of a wedding cake or serving ice cream out of a truck.

James, is that you?  Looks like our beloved rocker has traded in his leather and chains and joined a 70’s English Boy Band.

Scotty we totally get the whole country- denim thing and we don’t even hate the mismatched jeans look, but this well-worn shirt looks like it more suitable for yard work than Nashville.

.

We didn’t love Pia Toscano’s outfit, but given her inexplicable elimination it seems more appropriate that we share a moment of silence here……………..Ok, silence over… WTH!?  Pia was the “most likely to succeed”, the gal “with the whole package”!  Now all you can hear on that empty stage is the deafening sound of Idol’s ratings crashing. Sorry Pia- we will miss you!!  (maybe the voters misunderstood and thought they were voting on the clothing selection instead of the song selection?!)

Dear Haley,

If you really are dating Casey Abrams, please take him for a haircut and help him find some clothes that fit.

xoxo, The 10 people left watching the show after Pia’s elimination.

Not sure what Steven Tyler has on this week. His faux snake-skin jacket looks better suited for a Palm Springs bingo face-off or a stint on Dynasty.

We really want to like Jaylo’s dress, but it seems to have a personality disorder…the curve-hugging fit and the cut-outs scream sexy, but the high neckline and the long sleeves say Amish.  We would have loosened up those laces to give her a tad more room across the hips as well.  Close, but no cigar mi amor…

.

And of course we can’t forget this week’s guest singer….The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Iggy Pop.  However, next time we suggest he wear a much better fitting top – as this one seemed to bunch and sag in all the wrong places…

.

We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s American Idol fashions…

    What were the Idol judges thinking having a half- naked Iggypop Pop stumbling all over the stage? I thought this was a family show?! I guess it helps me scare my kids about the effects of drug use, though…

      Agreed on the outfits this week! All three girls looked like Mini-me’s of Gwen Stefano. That funky style works for Miss Stefano but definitely doesn’t work for the Idol girls. Pia is so pretty she’s hard to make look bad but this outfit looked like pyjamas on her.

    I know Pia didn’t always make the best fashion choices And some said
    She was too Pagaent queen-ish, but I felt she was finding herself and given
    More time she would have blossomed. Too bad she won’t get the chance now

    Hope next week’s fashion and voting is a whole lot better. Fun blog here. Glad I found it and will check in next week to see if the girl’s find a better stylist than Gwen. I’m about the size of Lauren (a size 12/14) and it makes me nuts to see them trying to dress her like she’s a size 4. Those styles are awful on her and it seems kinda mean to dress her up like they have been in ruffles and super short skirts,tight clothes etc.
