Project Runway! Soup's on!

Is it just me, or are the challenges unnecessarily over-complicated recently? Here's what the designers had to deal with this time:

1. Real women
2. Garment for a gala
3. Campbell's soup fabric or inspiration
4. Red for Heart Health
5. Must construct garment out of goat hide while blindfolded

Yeah, I made up number five. This was a multi-faceted challenge of bizzaro complications, the designers got overwhelmed, and most of the dresses were either boring or bad. Here is your winning design from Amy. She's made a couple of interesting garments so far, but this really wasn't too amazing. It moved very well when the model walked, and it was better than most of the lot.

And it was time for Jesus to go home. He's been in the bottom three consistently. Yes, he's adorable, but, as Nina said, he has taste issues. It's shiny, tight and short. It has multiple chintzy rhinestone straps. He used the Campbell's fabric in an interesting way on the sides, but. . . well, that doesn't matter. It's bad. It's really really bad. It's a stripper dress, and not in a good way.

I was hoping for a great graphic dress with the Campbell's logo fabric, something like the one that Chris March designed for the Hershey challenge in Season Four. Something fresh and unusual and maybe poking fun at American consumerism, or the buyable object as art or. . .
Oh, right. Andy Warhol already did that forty-five years ago.


  1. Lol. I love the old Campbells soup dress.

  2. That challenge was just annoying! So glad to be moving on :) Bye bye Jesus!
