Only two ladies remain in the running to become the next American Idol, and they both stepped it up a notch during the Top 8 episode last night! That's why we scored the inside scoop about their style from the show's costume designer Soyon An. Haley Reinhart slipped on a colorful dress by Single to sing her version of Blondie's "Call Me." "It was so chic and colorful and worked well with her performance," An said of the frock, which she accessorized with purple thigh-high boots by Chinese Laundry. Meanwhile, An described Lauren Alaina's look for her performance of "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus as "sweet young rocker girl." "The dress flattered Lauren's figure and the animal print was fun!" She wore a dress from by Beyond by Jovani (style B199; $215 at TheMintCollection.com) and accessories from Bebe and Wet Seal. "Her boots are her own but I added black Swarovski crystals," An noted of the extra touch. Do you think one of these women will emerge as the leader after last night?
