Looks to me like a loose, one-shoulder extra-long top with a thick strap sew in for the other shoulder.

to me it's looks more like a cowl neckline with the microphone clipping the one side to give it that look.
I would find a shirt that is a bit big for you, one or two sizes should be plenty. cut  down to your size except at the neckline:

You may have to add to the bottom of the shirt to make it the right length but if so just cut another shirt from under the arms straight across and add that to the bottom.

Also I'd add lightweight interfacing to the neckline to prevent it from stretching out too much. Do this to the front and back.
I have two dresses made with this neckline and the one without interfacing can be a bit scandalous sometimes. Wink

Oh if you want to make the shoulder look like that on one side then either pin, stitch or eve use a bit of ribbon and tie that side near the top if the shoulder.

I just checked out the show and I really like it.  I especially love that they talked about velomobiles in the last episode because my friends and I are building one!  Sorry I'm not any help in the recon department though.

I think it's definitely a cowl-neck like Eliea posted... probably the neckline was too flimsy to hold her mic so they clipped the mic to her shirt and bra-strap. That's what it looks like.
To duplicate the asymetrical neck, just gather a bit and pleat it similarly and stitch it. I think it would also be a cute spot to sew on an accessory like a neat button or a farbric flower made of the part trimmed from the shirt.
