‘Idol’ Cast-Off Carly Smithson Fancies Her Fashion Sense

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol eliminee Carly Smithson has a flair for fashion – but not intentionally.

Smithson – who was voted off Idol this past Wednesday (Apr. 23) – had a unique sense of fashion throughout the show, but insists she didn’t worry too much about her wardrobe.

She says, “I didn’t want to look like everyone else. When I go shopping I look for different stuff. I’m all tattooed so things that are too dainty look weird on me. But I don’t think about fashion all that much.”

Smithson’s favorite outfits throughout the show were a bright blue dress she wore while singing “Come Together” on Beatles Night (Mar. 11), and the hippie- chic dress she rocked on Broadway Night (Apr. 22).

She says, “It’s nice when what I’m wearing and what I’m singing actually come together.”

As for Simon Cowell, who negatively commented on Smithson’s attire several times, she has some words for him.

Says Smithson: “Simon thinks I have bad fashion, but I don’t care!”

American Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
