Sorry, I'm a bit late with this. Last week's Project Runway challenge was to take a divorced woman's wedding gown and redesign it into something fresh and fashion forward for their new free fresh lives. Tim Gunn uttered the word, "divorcee," at least seventy-three times in this episode. Every time he used this archaic and fab word, I loved his a little bit more.
This is the winning dress, from Gordanna, and it was high time for her to win. If you consider that she dyed the dress, cut it into strips, and made this wonderful little garment all in a day, it's pretty amazing. Not so crazy about the boots, but the dress is fantastic. And Gordanna never flipped out about the situation, unlike some of the other designers. One in particular, whose voice is like acrylic nails on a chalkboard, whined the entire time.
Unfortunately, Epperson was sent to clean up his work space and go home. Heidi said that this dress looked like Oktoberfest wear. It kind of does, but I think the main problem here is that the redesigned dress looks so much like the original wedding dress, shortened a little, with bits of electrical tape stuck to it for a St. Pauli girl effect. So, goodbye, Epperson. You added some much needed all-pervasive cool to this season, where the men have dropped like flies from the first episode.
