But we don't know a lot about fashion.

That's why we needed the help of American Idol stylist Miles Siggin to comment on the trends of a few of this year's contestants:

Haley Scarnato: (below, left) "Haley tends to gravitate toward pageant-y, more sparkly things which we've been slowly getting her out of. You can go out to any club or bar in any city on a Saturday night and see a million girls wearing the same thing," Siggins says. "With the Idols, people have got to aspire to be them in every way, including dress."

Melinda Doolittle: (below, right) "Before Idol Melinda didn't really know anything about fashion or shopping at all... She's got quite a strange body, because she hasn't got much of a neck and developed shoulders. [Her friends who helped style Melinda during auditions] were putting her in lots of collared stuff - jackets and things - which I got her out of as soon as I could and into dresses, which are a lot more flattering for her. By the end of the season she's going to be the most changed."

Jordin Sparks: (below, left) Miss Sparks turns to her mama for fashion tips. The jury's still out on whether mom knew best when Jordin stepped out in a grey skirt and a red checkered top, but our Idol insider confirms that Jordin loved the look. "Her mom took her shopping. She loved it. It was age-appropriate compared to the week before."

Blake Lewis: (below, right) Beatboxing isn't the only thing that makes this boy unique. Siggins, who recently styled Blake in a chic suit, tells us the singer is usually anxious to put his own spin on the style. "We did a great suit for him a few weeks ago and then he threw his schtick into it and throws some kind of mad pattern on what he wears - maybe a pink shirt or something. He's got his own definite sense of style."

Great. Now if Siggins could just find Sean Stewart some clothing, we'd appreciate it.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
