American Horror Story has had no shortage of fashion moments during the course of its time on television, but the series really hit its stride in season three — better known as Coven — so much so that the show's costume designer, Lou Eyrich, won the 2014 Emmy for best costumes.

As you might recall, she wore a red dress and let out a final shout: "Balenciaga!" After the episode aired, many lamented the fact that her dress wasn't actually a Balenciaga design at all. But fear not, fashion fans — to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of American Horror Story: Coven, Eyrich joined us for an interview, and we asked her to set the record straight.
