We here at TODAY are big believers in testing what we preach (see: all the food — including meat — anchors eat during early morning cooking segments). So it was no surprise when Natalie Morales was spotted on TODAY Wednesday wearing a winning “Fashion Star” design during an interview with season 1 winner Kara Laricks.
“[It’s] a perfect fit,” Morales said of the sleek, white, leather-accented dress ($325), now available at Saks.
Laricks, 38, a former fourth-grade teacher who now designs chic masculine-meets-feminine clothing, came in first on last night’s NBC reality-TV show finale, having garnered more than $6 million dollars in orders. Throughout the season, 14 designers competed for the coveted prize: to sell one unique collection in three mass retail stores — Macy’s, Saks and H&M.
“It's absolutely unreal,” Laricks told Morales of her win. “I haven’t even had a chance yet to go into each store to go see them today. Today feels like cloud nine.”
Check out the rest of Kara Laricks’ collection at Saks,Macy’s and H&M, available online and in stores today. What do you think of the winning looks? Will you be purchasing them? Let us know in the comments section!
