>> tamron: about two months ago, we gave five up-and-coming fashion designers a chance to dress me for the show in their collections they make at home, in their offices, it was amazing and one of the big things we did was we got a chance to hang out with andre leon talley, he went to lunch with them, mentor to them and give them advice for one of our designers, denzel parris, made me this dress that everyone loved and he's been making money move and he's here to tell us what's been going on. joining us from the studio in miami, florida, please welcome back to the show denzel parris! okay, denzel. what's been the reaction since you've been on the show? >> well, first, thank you again because since that day life has changed completely.
2:32 am
between balancing working full time and getting the brand off the ground, being connected with an icon like andre leon talley has been life-changing. the little time i was in new york, right after we found i was walking down the street and people were literally coming up to me like "didn't i just see you? you were a guy with the turtleneck come you to the white dress." well i'm having lunch. so it's just been great, it's been great. >> tamron: with all the designers, you were doing this in many cases part-time because you still have to pay her bills and do your other job while you're doing this. the impact andre's advice -- what did it have on you in the sense that it helped you go to the next level or think in a new direction? >> absolutely. what i liked the most about it is's advice was it wasn't generic, it wasn't typical just "chase your dreams and keep going." although that's important. it was very realistic, what to
2:33 am
expect, this is not going to be an overnight story about at the same time it was very uplifting, very validating as well especially to get that coming from an icon like andre, someone who i grew up reading his articles, looking at his documentaries and to be sitting down having dinner with him and him telling me, you could be next, that was beyond reassuring and validating considering every thing i went there to get here. >> tamron: absolutely. in the spirit of what we did with that, the hamilton play "i'm not giving away my shot." andre made some calls because he knows everybody and as i understand there was a call made that helped you with a big opportunity, what is it? >> so i have been -- i just came back from beverly hills, my first time over there. andre reached out to a good friend of his end and a renowned shopping center and he was hosting a release party for
2:34 am
leslie odom jr., one of the leads in "hamilton." he said, "why don't over and host a trunk show?" coming from sketching in my dorm room and coming to beverly hills and seeing people in the store window, people of caliber trying to fight it on, fighting over jackets, that was -- amazing would be an understatement. the whole situation has just been beautiful. [applause] >> tamron: well, we could not be more proud of you and happy for you. i hope you did not sell my white scuba dress, i'm still waiting on it. >> i still love to say thank you again for that. >> tamron: thank you, thank you, we are proud of you.
2:35 am
thank you to andre leon talley, we will continue to support these young designers because it guess what, in a few months in february, we are doing it again. we are picking by designers to dress me for the whole week. we will be right back, don't go anywhere. ♪

talking about a very active weekend here across the northwest. but let's stretch it out. holiday-wise, all across the country, a big chunk will be quiet. janai, kenneth? >> all right, our thanks to chris for those christmas colors too. the end of the "star wars" franchise marked the start of life as husband and wife for two big fans. >> andy and wendy took in "star wars: the rise of skywalker" on opening night in san antonio. first they had a "star wars" themed wedding at the theater with the self-described nerds tying the knot in costume. they say theirs is a match made in a galaxy far, far away. stormtroopers kylo ren and darth vader served as witnesses. they're off to disney world for their honeymoon to visit "galaxy's edge." >> fitting. they have "star wars" books and encyclopedias, including an autographed wildlife guide of "star wars." big fans. so andy said, she showed me her her encyclopedia creatures and i was like, oh, she's the one. >> that's how it happens, they say.
2:39 am
>> those encyclopedias. >> get you going. coming up, ideas to spice up any kind of holiday party. plus "cats" opens today. with a star-studded cast. we'll tell you what the critics are saying. first, could your amazon purchase be coming from the trash?
2:40 am
2:41 am
a lot of folks ask me why their dishwasher doesn't get everything clean. i tell them, it may be your detergent... that's why more dishwasher brands recommend cascade platinum...
2:42 am
...with the soaking, scrubbing and rinsing built right in. for sparkling-clean dishes, the first time. cascade platinum. we are back with this dramatic surveillance video of an ef-2 tornado touching down in columbia, mississippi. the twister tore through an auto repair shop's parking lot earlier this week ripping power lines and destroying a large tent. three minor injuries were reported at that business. at least 14 tornados were reported across the state. some consumer news now. the convenience store chain known as wawa reveals a data breach lasting nearly a year affected thousands of customers. >> wawa discovered malware on
2:43 am
its payment process servers last week. the company believes the software had been gathering credit card and other customer information since last march. the breach affected all 850 wawa locations, wah. >> by the way, i love wawa. >> i do too. >> also a conflict of interest there. >> i know, i 100% love wawa, top notch. >> data breach, no! okay. now to a holiday alert about what you buy on amazon. >> nearly half of the listings on the site are sold by third-party sellers. according to the "wall street journal" some of them sell those items and are pulling them straight from the trash. >> abc's rebecca jarvis has the details. >> reporter: a holiday shopping warning. "the wall street journal" reporting that some third-party sellers on amazon may be selling actual garbage. >> just about anyone can create a storefront on amazon. >> reporter: why are amazon users being fooled into buying trash? according to the "wall street journal," buyers believe if it
2:44 am
comes in an amazon box or has an amazon label, it is in fact sold by amazon. but that isn't the case. many third-party sellers send their items to fulfillment centers across the country to then be sent by the online retail giant. rachel johnson greer, a former manager of an amazon fulfillment center, knows the ins and outs and says it's not hard to be fooled. >> anything that was inside the fulfillment centers would get the prime badge, because it could be delivered at that speed. people started equating the prime badge with amazon. >> reporter: there are millions of brand-new items sold on amazon, but there are some labeled new that are secondhand. the "journal" put the idea to the test. >> we retrieved items from store dumpsters, created an amazon storefront, listed those items on amazon. >> reporter: the "wall street journal" purchased their own items before anyone else could. according to heather hoops, not everyone sells trash. >> oh, this is a good one, 50% off. >> buy a toy after christmas for $5, flip it online for $20. >> amazon, essentially a flea
2:45 am
market for online shopping. you don't necessarily know where the items are coming from. >> reporter: in response to the "wall street journal" report, amazon updated their policy to ban selling items from the trash and closed the "journal's" third-party store for violations of their seller policies and seller code of conduct. amazon telling abc news, sellers are responsible for meeting amazon's high bar for product quality. there are isolated incidents that do not reflect the high-quality customer experience provided by the millions of small businesses selling in our store every day. we will take appropriate action against the bad actors involved, including possible legal action. rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. >> wow. so you can literally get anything on amazon, but it might
2:46 am
be trash. so things that you can do, take a look at the product page, if it says "only available from a third-party seller," that means it may not be from amazon. >> that is true. so many people are getting stuff from amazon, these are important things. "fulfillment by amazon" just means amazon is shipping the product, not selling it.

bunch of laughs for people in the audience and the candidates. the question was, if you had the choice to give a gift or ask forgiveness for one of the candidates, which would you do? andrew yang was the first to answer that, he laughed and joked he would give his books to all the candidates. warren said she would ask for forgiveness, sometimes she can get heated, but that's because of the all the people's stories that she hears. >> all right, elena, not a question you hear at a normal debate, but i guess right before the holidays it makes sense. elena gomez live from los angeles, thank you. now to the standoff over the senate impeachment trial with democrats and republicans clashing over the timeline. >> after becoming only the third u.s. president to be impeached, president trump is slamming the process as a hoax and is looking to the senate for vindication. >> house speaker nancy pelosi is throwing a bit of a wrench in their plans with an unexpected holdup. abc's mary bruce has more. >> reporter: in the oval office, president trump tried to shrug off the new historic mark on his
