Did you hear? Project Runway is back! There are seventy-six designtestants at this point, and I have no idea who any of them are. The challenge went like this: You just arrived in New York. You have to take a piece of clothing belonging to one of your competitors, and make a new garment out of it. Aaaaaaaaaaaand, you have five hours to complete this task, while fitting a model you have never met.
Some girl won, and some other girl with dreadlocks was sent home. Ah, but I had to show you the dress above, because it is a tribute to all that I love about Project Runway. It was made by "soon to be a reality TV star" Casanova (yes, with one S). He is Latino, he is wacky, and he didn't get booted for showing this dress. Michael Kors called it a garment suitable for a "pole dancer from Dubai." I don't know what that means exactly, but it's fab. Nina. . . Miss Nina was so offended and intrigued that she deemed it "fascinatingly bad." Ah, this made me happy. I didn't even get upset that he didn't get eliminated. Casanova is Project Runway Gold! This dress looks like I made it from my kitchen sheers, using Gorilla Glue! It's strange and badly made and not in any way flattering. Isn't it great?!
This is such a relief after watching Work of Art, I'll tell you. I don't have to wonder if I'm just not art-savvy enough to get it. This dress sucks! Yay!
Next week, they do some other challenge involving designing clothes. Stay tuned for in depth coverage from MAB.
