Feeling the music and rocking the runway!

Leanne designs for Korto's country persona. This look reminded me of Ethel Merman in Annie Get Your Gun (which is amusing in these days of Sarah Palin!). Leanne created a full-length skirt in black (which read as chocolate on the runway), a sleeveless fuchsia western-style shirt with yoke detail and tied at the waist, and wide gold belt, and a black-and-white gingham print scarf tied around her neck. Her look was beautifully executed, but it fell short of her intention: to make Korto into a country music STAR. Had there been more drama and flare, then her look would have been a contender for the win.
