Kara Saun hired as WB sit-com’s costume designer, created dresses for Top Model 5

Kara Saun lost Project Runway, but she insists, “I did win.”

That’s because she’s just been hired as the costume designer for a WB sit-com, What I Like About You. (That follows a gig designing clothes for TLC’s appearances on their show R U the Girl.) Kara got the new job after “the show’s producers saw her work on last season’s ‘Runway’ and called her,” the New York Times reports. “She has spent the last month haunting fabric shops and putting her staff of five costumers to work ‘building,’ as she describes it, new clothes for the seven regular cast members, including the series’ stars.”

Kara also did work for the upcoming America’s Next Top Model 5. She “recently designed 13 gold metallic leather dresses worn by the ‘Top Model’ contestants for the latest ad campaign for the show,” the Times reports.
