Kit Scarbo always thought her designs would appeal to girls her own age (which is to say 28), but the designer found out she had a different following after her appearance on “Project Runway” on season four. “I was shocked by how much of a response I got from girls between the ages of 8 and 18,” Scarbo said. That makes her new collaboration with Etnies, on footwear and apparel collections for spring (below) and fall ’10, all the more appropriate. Scarbo, who designs in her new Hollywood, Calif., studio when not running between her gigs as a stylist at E! Entertainment and for ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” said she was excited by the chance to share her positive message with the teen and tween girls who wear Etnies. “For me, it’s a new market, but I’m all about feminine strength and [saying] be your own person,” she said. Does that love of feminine strength carry over to her night job? Seems like it: Scarbo told Insider her favorite contestant on the new season of “Dancing” is Kelly Osbourne. “She told me she liked my hair, and it was like she was a boy I had a crush on or something!” she laughed.
