The new season of Project Runway is growing on me. It's always hard for me to get used to the new designers, but I'm liking this season quicker. When Heidi announced the challenge, I was thinking that the challenges were pretty lame so far. I mean, they reused a challenge from the first season, and now just design a cocktail dress? Of course, that was before I found out the details. First of all, the models had to shop for the fabric. I nearly went into convulsions when I heard that, I can't imagine how the DESIGNERS must have felt. The models always seem to know nothing about fashion, they just wear it, and have horrible taste. The season 1 wedding dress episode could have thrust this thought into my head...anyways. And if that wasn't enough, they had to use all green (as in environmentally friendly) fabrics. Oh God.Everyone chose a cream/champagne colored satin and a heinous brown satin. Everyone had to learn how to make their garment different from everyone's even when they could look exactly alike.
Onto the outfits-
Ouch. This was just a painful dress to watch go down the runway. It was cheap, tacky, horribly made...it's a shame, because Wesley was just the cutest thing.
I loved this. Navy was a great color choice, very elegant, and the ruffles were so sophisticated. It's a conservative dress, but the V-neck makes it a little bit provocative. The belt really makes it, it would probably look too simple without it.
Just like the judges, I loved this dress. You can really see the work that went into it, and it's a fun, flirty, whimsical cocktail dress. Although his constant use of Suede in the third person still and always will irk me.
I really don't see why the judges loved this so much. I mean, it's really nothing special, if even pretty at all. I, like Natalie Portman, am not really a fan of the one-sleeved look. And I hate Stella. Sorry. I do.
I can sort of see where Leanne was going with her circle idea, it just wasn't executed well at all. She could have made it look good, but the fabric just kills the idea.
Same thing here- good idea, bad execution. I love the exposed seam idea, but the mustard yellow and the wings at the sides do nothing for it. This could have been really cool, but it's all in the fabric choice, as you can see...
Love it, love it, love it. It's classy and ladylike and just gorgeous.
Gross. It looks like something out of Paris Hilton's line that I discussed here a long, long time ago...
Oh Jerell...I love you. I love you and your V-neck t-shirts baring your hairless, shiny chest. And I would love this dress, if only you would hack off those god-awful peacock feathers at the hem...
I am obsessed with Emily. She has the best personal style so far and I love watching her. This dress is adorable, even if it is a tad short. I wish they showed the back though, that's what drew me in.
The title of this post is an homage to Blayne and his licious fetish. I don't care if it's already old by the second episode, I laugh every time he says it. This dress? Cute, nothing we haven't seen before. Hmm. But it's Blayne. Therefore, I love the dress.
I really, really liked Daniel's. It was simple but so beautiful. But it does not photograph well, it looked so much better on the runway.
