Runway To “National Memorial Day Concert” – Katharine McPhee In Matthew Williamson

American Idol season 5 runner-up, Katharine McPhee, performed “Somewhere” at the 20th Annual National Memorial Day Concert, on the steps of The Capitol in Washington this weekend.

For her first performance she wore a floor-sweeping maxi print dress with a ruffled neckline, from Matthew Williamson’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection, which has a bohemian flair, you only get from a Matthew Williamson piece.

The dress was worn with an embellished belt, and she accessorized with a stack of gold bangles, a long necklace, and silver bauble earrings.

For her second performance, the 25-year-old singer duetted with pianist Lang Lang, performing “America the Beautiful”.

Again she wore Matthew Williamson, this time a satin taupe fitted dress, with a skirt that drapes elegantly from the waist.

I love embellished details on her sleeves, and around her waist, as it adds a touch of sparkle to this magnificent dress.

She opted out of the beaded runway necklace, instead adding a simple delicate necklace, which I prefer.

Nude ankle strap heels complete this stunning look.

Katharine was one of the many stars to attend Matthew Williamson’s New York store opening party back in February, during Fashion Week.

The store is located at 415 West 14th Street, New York, NY 10014.

    I love the second look. Classy and elegant.

    Why is she walking all over her tits?
    Does being a runner-up not provide enough money to pay for a bra and lift those babies?

    Wow, the second Matthew Williamson dress looks so much better on her than on the runway model!

    That second look is gorgeous, the accessories complement the dress perfectly! Definitely candidate for best dressed this week in my opinion!

    I agree with shoeaholic– I hope the second look is a candidate for best dressed this week because she won it for me with this look!
