Professional Dancing With the Stars two-steppers,  Derek Hough and Anna Trebunskaya, rocked the sleek outfit, local costume designer, Amanda Wolff designed Tuesday. Wolff, an apprentice costume designer for The Walnut Street Theatre, won first place in a design contest sponsored by Macy's and Dancing With the Stars.

Concidentally, Woff sewed most of the costumes in The Walnut Street Theatre's production of Rodger & Hammerstein's The King and I. Read that full story here.

The star-couple flawlessly danced the paso doble to Lady Gaga's tune, Bad Romance,  in Wolff's black and red hombre studded hombre  ensemble. It was absolutely identical to the sketch - except to Wolff's chagrin, there were no studs on the shoes. Bummer. "Just glitter," Wolff said via cell phone early Wednesday as she prepared  for her flight back to Philly from Hollywood.

"I was so excited," said the 22-year-old designer.  "The whole thing is exhausting." 

We bet.

Three cheers for Dresher-based Amanda Wolff!

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
