Judging by the ensembles worn by the Scientologist-heavy crowd at one of LA Fashion Week's recent shows, all those interrogations via E-meter and "detox programs" required to be a full-fledged Clear do not include any lessons on how to dress oneself. At Smashbox Studios yesterday, Giovanni Ribisi's sister Marissa debuted her Whitney Kros clothing line, and all a whole smattering of outed B and C-List Scientologists showed up to support the Scientologist designer. There was good ole Tom Cruise Rejectee Erika Christensen dressed in a shapeless fiery muumuu, Juliette Lewis in Hammer shorts, and Jenna Elfman wearing some kind of '80s era sweater that looks like it was hoisted from the Breakfast Club wardrobe department. More pictures, and our ideas on why the "A-List" Scientlebrities weren't there to support the cause, after the jump.
Considering the fact that a line like Whitney Kros (with its zebra-crotched pants and paint-splattered white jeans) is not exactly Chanel couture, we're not entirely caught off-guard to see that Tom, Katie, Will, Jada and the Travoltas didn't make the trek. While we'll never know exactly why the "cool kids" of Scientology weren't there, there is one question that is weighing even heavier on our minds — how sick do you think Jason Lee is of that ridiculous Earl mustache? We're betting that answer lies somewhere between really sick and really really sick. But we've been wrong before.
