Close To The Edge
At Dodge Ram 3500 Fashion Week, Jo-Beth's yellow fringed jumpsuits, belted shiny satin tuxedo jackets and skinny pleated pegged trousers stood out like Clay Aiken in prison. The Kentucky newcomer's presentation generated such a buzz that Linda Evans herself, along with bands like the Commodores, sat wide-eyed in the front row. Her hubba-hubba duds, available at Isle of You in Lexington, Ky (located off Man o' War Blvd. near I-75) alternated between beautifully ironed and stayed-up-all-night-watching-VH1. Jo-Beth's secret fantasy is to dress the "Open Up And Say...Ahh!,"-era Bret Michaels, when his look was frenetic poet-god. "I don't care how much you tart yourself up," Jo-Beth says, "you gotta keep it real."
