In September, the Adrianna Papell For E! Live From The Red Carpet launched a nationwide search for designers to submit red carpet looks for their Spring 2012 collection. After a rigorous nomination process through hundreds of submissions, they have finally announced a winner – Natalie Palter, a freshman fashion design student at Marist College in New York, was chosen the winner out of 700 designs for her Grecian goddesses-inspired gown.
Natalie noted “I have been designing ever since I could hold a crayon. I wanted to design a dress that would not only flatter any woman’s body, but also make her feel like red carpet royalty.” The gorgeous blue gown delicately drapes the female form, while crystal baguettes accent the décolletage and natural waist.
Jaynee Berkman, President of Adrianna Papell states, “We look forward to incorporating the winning design into the Adrianna Papell For E! Live From The Red Carpet collection. It complements our current style offerings and will be available at Lord & Taylor and other fine retailers beginning in June.”
The First Runner-Up, Genovena Christoff will receive a $1,000.00 cash prize, and the Second Runner-Up, Jamie McClure will receive a $500.00 cash prize.
