'Fashion Star' Crowns Kara Laricks as First Winner


Defeating Ronnie Escalante and Nzimiro Oputa, Laricks' collections which are worth up to $6 million in total will be featured in H and M, Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

"Fashion Star" has wrapped up its inaugural season and named its first winner. After ten weeks of creating brand new collections and trying to sell them to buyers, Kara Laricks beat out two other finalists, Ronnie Escalante and Nzimiro Oputa, and nabbed the champion title.

In the finale that aired Tuesday, May 15, the three remaining contestants were tasked to design three collections for three different buyers, H&M, Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue. Each of Laricks' collections was sold for $2 million.

"I feel so overwhelmed. I don't know what to say. I'm so thrilled... at the opportunity to keep going and keep designing. This is so exciting, so thrilling!" so the 38-year-old New Yorker said upon learning her victory. Her collections will be featured in the buyers' stores.

Escalante finished in the second place, while Oputa placed third. Mentor/judge Jessica Simpson said of the three finalists, "Each and every one of you, the people that you are and what you represent, you've inspired me to be better."

    I can't believe she won. I very seldom cared for her clothes. Some were quite unappealing to me. A big disappointment.

    I'm glad she won. She was my top pick from the beginning. Her designs were always so elegant!

    Seriously? Her designs are way over the top and not for the everyday woman. What were they thinking?
