Peter Thomas’ Daughter Could Be the Next Oscar Girl
It looks like one of Peter Thomas' five kids (ahem, Phaedra, that was just for you) could be looking to follow in her new mommy's footsteps. Porsche Thomas is one of the models in the running for the Oscars Designer Challenge 2011. Run much like Project Runway, the Challenge features nine designers creating a dress for the "Oscar girl" (who carries the award, and helps usher the stars on and off stage) to be showcased at the 2011 Academy Awards. Each designer has chosen a model for his or her gown, and the model whose dress is picked also becomes the Oscar girl.
Porsche's designer is Natalia Romano, a FIDM alum, who designed a creamy gold asymmetrical gown. Fans can vote on their fave designers at the Oscar website, and the fan favorite designer will win the prize of his or her gown showing at the Oscars, along with his or her model pick wearing it. Cynthia, of course, is tweeting, encouraging fans to "Vote for Peter's daughter @porschethomas, dress #7 so she can go to the Oscar's!!!"
