BPR Top 5 Looks: 4th Place (tie)

Pretend for a moment, if you will, that you are a 17-year old high school girl getting ready to shop for your prom dress. (Some of you don't have to pretend, I know) You've been given the privilege of rifling through the portfolios of 9 talented designers and the opportunity to choose your favorite for a one of a kind custom design.

How many of you would have chosen Chris?

With its drag queen looks, crazy costumes and mile-high wigs, Chris March's self modeled portfolio looked something like a carnival program. Even Chris wondered, "Who would pick me?"

Krista Balzofiore from St. John Vianney High School wasn't scared away one bit. She loved the fun looks that Chris showed and picked him to make her dream dress in "What A Girl Wants". He refrained from the wacky and designed a lovely green charmeuse dress with an elegant silhouette that was beautifully styled and fitted.

For the second straight challenge, Chris startled us with his talent, making us sit up and take notice. He was much more than just the funny, nice guy providing us some needed moments of levity. We realized he had a chance to go all the way.

What a girl wants is to have fun and look great at her prom. Chris delivered on both counts. Congratulations Chris, you have two spots now on the BPR Top 5 Looks from Season 4!
