Fashion Star's fourth week high end\low-end challenge saw a savvy quintet scaling the ladder of success and an unlucky seven perilously clinging onto the rungs. Ultimately, Sarah Parrot achieved $240,000 sold, Kara Laricks and Nikki Poulos registered their third sales, and Lisa Vian Hunter learned even a supportive Nicole Richie tweet cannot preclude elimination.

Following three futile exhibitions, creative and funky Barbara Bates finally scored her initial sale as Macy's chose both her high end Sleeveless Printed Halter Shirtdress ($99) and low end Sleeveless Hooded Halter dress ($79).
Luciana Scarabello left Ronnie Escalante as the sole designer sans a sale, as Saks chose her timeless Beaded Dress for $225. Easily pair this piece with black, nude, or silver heels and simple jewelry.
Kara Laricks continued living the maxim high risk equals high reward as this rocker vibed Tailcoat Jacket ($395), notched her third consecutive sale with Saks.
Nikki Poulos catalogued this season's eighth sell out with her maxi dress ($35), which was one of two H&M selections. If you are among the fortunate who wrest one from the hanger tomorrow, meld the garment with neutral jewelry as the expressive print is sufficient for ensnaring attention.
