Going from average high school student to America’s singing sweetheart requires a certain wardrobe adjustment. So you may have noticed when Jordin Sparks, who wore an affordable dress on last week’s American Idol, stepped it up last night in a custom-made designer frock by Badgley Mischka. Longtime fans of the show, Mark Badgley and James Mischka honed in on Jordin early on. Badgley tells PEOPLE, “We kept thinking, ‘That’s a beautiful young girl; she would look amazing in our clothes.’ ” So when Jordin made it to the top two with Blake Lewis, they jumped on creating her finale wardrobe. Mischka says of Jordin: “She’s absolutely amazing and such a talent. She’s only 17 years old, but we wanted her to look glamorous and feminine.” Judging by the dazzling black dress she wore when she brought the house down singing “This Is My Now,” they’re already on target. Don’t miss tonight’s show to see Jordin’s next Badgley Mischka creation — and to find out if she is going to be the next American Idol!

lolly on

i think that dress is very unflatering on her. it makes her hips look 2 times bigger that they really are. and i dont like the see through stuff over the straps at all! its a good idea for a deas, but obviously was not put together very well or atleast for her body type. i like her, but i don’t think she should win tonight.

alia on

I think Jordin is adorable and dresses very appropriate for her age. All the dresses were cute on her!

Heidi on

I loved the necklace Jordin was wearing during the Beatles medley. Any idea where it’s from?

k on

i love jordin and the dress is cute BUT i dont think it really works for her…i agree with lolly, it doesnt really work for her body time…she should have been in something a little more slimming…

glad on

i have to disagree with lolly…i love the top portion of the dress..but you do have to be a lil thinner to wear something like that…i bought one similar to that one in white and its gorgeous…

layla on

I like Jordin, but I don’t think that dress suied her body very well… if you know what I mean. Stick with the slimmer dresses.

Kelly on

I really like Jordin…. but I don’t like her dress at all. I thought her pink dress was really pretty, though!

April on

I would juts like to say that she looked good in everything
that she get to waer. All of them looked good on a 17 year old. Hope you have fun being the next American Idol GOOD LUCk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amanda Beckman on

The pink dress was beautiful (it would have made a beautiful full-length gown, too), but this dress belongs on someone less curvy.

Julie on

The dress looks sweet and cute on her. The ruching could come down a little further, because it does create the illusion of a belly. Her body is beautiful the way it is, but there’s no need to add “extra” with clothes.

Darlene on

I think jordan looked beautiful in all the dresses and is very pretty and an excellent singer. I.m glad she won!

sara on

I LOVE JORDIN! SHE IS SO CUTE AND I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE IS ONLY 17. I THINKS SHE LOOKS GREAT IN THE DRESS. SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE PICKING ON HER(IN THE MEDIA), SAYING SHE IS OVERWEIGHT. I THINK AMERICA’S VIEW ON WEIGHT IS SO DISTORTED. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT “FAT” IS ANYMORE. ESPECIALLY WITH ROLE MODELS LIKE, NICOLE RICHIE, PARIS HILTON, BRITNEY SPEARS. THEY ARE STICK THIN, WHICH IS NOT NORMAL!
GO JORDIN, YOU ARE GREAT.

Katerina on

I personally am not a fan of Jordin, but she is really pretty. This dress isn’t terrible, but it doesnt do anything for her either.

Taylor Rae on

i don’t think it looks right on her body type.

fatima on

I think every dress she wore look beautiful in her body. I don’t understand those who thinks she is big. Everything looks perfect on her. I like the last dress she wore the night of the crown. I mean the long gold colour dress. Is anyone knows that?

kymberzz on

what about the pink dress she wore for the duet with ruben stoddard ….where’s that from ?

chris on

Never having watched American Idol, or any TV for that matter, I had to look up this lovely young girly on line and hear what all the excitment is about. Her voice is so lovely it brought me to tears. Not only is she gifted with the voice of an angel, but she is beautiful on the outside as well. The dress she is wearing in this photo looks lovely.

LOTUS on

I WORSHIP THE PINK DRESS Jordin Sparks wore with Reuben. It was Poppie couture http://www.poppiecouture.com
She also did the cool lace dress she wore with jeans when she sang with Blake.Those flattered her body type and showed off her style .

justice on

i think she is pretty all the time

VB on

I like it in the picture waaay better than I like it on her.
