Janet Harvey and I were covering House of Diehl's STYLE WARS: Style Battle Championship LA for Going.com
It was an awesomely cool event where 8 designers competed against each other in 5 minute real-time design challenges and runway walk-offs. (Sort of like an MC battle.)
The styles very "couture, impossible to wear" designs, and one of the judges was Jody Watley who is still incredibly beautiful. (You can read more about it here.)
At one point, in reference to the design pictured below, we had the following exchange:
Me: Hey doesn't that look like something out of Dune?
Janet: Like a Bene Gesserit?
Janet: Wow, did we just totally nerd up a fashion event?
