7 News Features: The Idol "Look"
You may never sound like an American Idol, but you can dress like one. All you need to do is get a computer, get a favorite Idol and get the look.
WSVN -- Randy Jackson: "So, let me give you the pluses, you look hot."
We love them.
Paula Abdul: "You're a good looking guy, you really are."
We vote for them.
Paula Abdul: "You're an amazingly beautiful girl."
Some fans even want to dress like them.
Erin Williams: "I love Blake and Jordin's looks. I love Blake, I love how preppy he is. I really love that style."
Winning the Idol title means having Idol style.
Erin, Melissa, Ali and Mishelle have opinions -- just ask them.
Melissa Stokesberry: "I think now, the final six, I think Jordin because she has the fashion sense that's like now."
Idol fans everywhere say it's not just about what contestants sing -- but what they wear.
Louis Aguirre: "Who do you think has the hottest style right now on the show?"
Lindsey Hatch: "Blake."
Louis Aguirre: "You think Blake has the flyest style, why?"
Lindsey Hatch: "Call me."
Louis Aguirre: "You want the hook up. Blake's not going to see this."
Lindsey Hatch's friend: "I really like the other guy."
Louis Aguirre: "Chris? He's got the whole JT, Justin Timberlake-thing going on."
Lindsey Hatch's friend: "Oh, yeah, definitely."
Louis Aguirre: "Chris, call her."
And Idol fashionistas don't have to go from shop to shop to get the look. Idol's fashion website -- yes, there actually is such a thing -- lets you mimic Melinda or tap into Blake's preppy persona and buy right on-line.
"I like that necklace."
Like Lakeisha's bling, you can buy them right on line.
Price tag: A mere $425.
If you liked Jordin's look last week...
"Wow, that dress is so cute! I really like that."
Just click on her picture -- the whole ensemble is there: the bracelet, the shoes and the dress.
The website even gives you alternatives -- like two options for Haley's short shorts.
You can even get Sanjaya's bandanas, but you may need to check into "hair rehab."
Simon Cowel: "You were as usual outstanding. Hate the outfit."
And just like Simon...
Ali Williams: "Eww! He's wearing another hat!"
Our fashion critics aren't afraid to give their opinions.
Ali Williams: "The last dress she wore was gray with stripes, and it looked like a bathrobe. It looked like a bathrobe she was going to wear to a funeral."
Ouch -- these girls don't miss a thing.
Ali Williams: "I don't like his shirt. Oh, her hair is so cute."
Chris made "geek" chic, and these fans say that's the key to keeping Idol, well, fashionable.
Mishelle Wade: "A lot of the audience is young like us, so we would like it better and more votes for them if they dressed a lot younger."
Louis Aguirre: "Note to self: Never, ever let a teenage girl critique what I am wearing."
