More From The Saturn Closet

Click on the photo for a closer view.
You want to know something shocking? Saturn is populated with a bunch of geeky gearheads, some of whom have never watched Project Runway. I know, this is hard to fathom. But one thing is certain, even if you don't know Suede from Stella, when you walk by Korto Momulu's amazing seatbelt coat you absolutely stop dead in your tracks.

Lisa Gilpin and I lugged this coat out of the file room closet and everyone within eyeshot began oohing and aahing. To answer a reader question, the coat was unlined. Given the time restraint of the challenge, I wasn't surprised.

Like Rachel Zoe, many proclaimed that they could easily wear it out the door. That's until you actually try to lift this thing. It weighs 30 pounds! Honestly, I don't know how Korto's model Katrina managed to walk this down the runway without falling over face first.

See this look on her face:

That's not the face of high fashion. That's a face in pain!
