Bout 2 of METRO Magazine's Fashion Fight Night III pitted two-time Fight Night champ Justin Grierson against one of last year's winners Ingrid Werthmann. Both photographers are notoriously heavy-hitters, and the shots all packed a punch. While Grierson played it safe with seasoned model Cari Jedlicki, Werthmann took a risk using a male model, edgy European-esque styling (courtesy of Richard Anderson, arguably the best fashion stylist in the city), and a trampoline. The risk paid off, and Werthmann won the bout.

The styling in Grierson's bout, on the other hand was more garish than edgy. The first look was promising; the combination of a slutty-looking white dress and huge diamond choker made me hope for more glorious kitsch. But what followed was disjointed and if it was meant to be kitschy, it ended up looking more overdone and tacky. I can't totally hate though - Jedlicki knows what she's doing up there, and Grierson came out with some good shots.
