S1/E8: Congratulations Kara Saun (again)!
God, this was gorgeous. The judging was unusually good this week and we have to reiterate what Duchess Kors said: somehow, she managed to make a postal uniform look sexy while still looking like a postal uniform.
While we think this outfit would look good on a variety of body types, we question how many male postal carriers would like to wear those pants, fabulous though they may be.
Aside from that very minor quibble, this outfit was perfection. The colors are gorgeous and that alone could have given her the win, since one doesn’t normally associate rich beautiful tones with the US Postal Service uniform.
That vest? We covet. Not enough to apply to be a postal carrier, mind you, but we covet it nonetheless.
And the hat? Shut UP! Where can we get one? That sweater is gorgeous too. Perfectly fitted, like everything Kara Saun does.
Honestly, it’s almost difficult to write about this because we gush and gush and then we realize we’re going apeshit over a mail carrier’s uniform. But seriously, how can we not? This was masterful. It still looks recognizably like what it’s supposed to be but unlike, say…every work uniform ever designed in the history of the world, this is actually stylish, hot, and flattering to a bunch of different ages and body types.
Kara Saun, you make being a fashion bitch very difficult because you’re so annoyingly even-keeled and consistent, but damn girl, you totally deserved this win.
