Petty Paws

5 Aug

Hi Project Runway Fanatics! Our season 9 designers gave a whole new meaning to the term catwalk this week. Unconventional challenges are a staple for PR, and this one was no different. Vehicle interiors, been there. Trash, been there. But wee wee pads, a whole new story! The challenge: create an outfit from materials found at Petland — the discount pet supply store. What’s more fashionable than fish tank plants and squeaky chew toys?

Compliment Closet highs:

Anthony: bird seed dress (should have won!)– Nothing looked more expensive and chic. I loved how the dark seeds at the neck blended beautifully downward into the light seeds. The styling was simple but spoke volumes, while the seeds themselves created this strong structural fit.

Joshua M: aquarium rock two-piece – Fifties and funky? Vintage and modern? Fantastically fresh! He mixed vintage silhouettes with modern patterns that couldn’t be ignored. And those fish tank rocks? Who knew they could look so cool. The bright hues brought extra spark to the piece. And I didn’t hate the dog toy pieces on the shoes (or the slight mid-drift) but could have done without all that makeup.

Honorable mentions: Victor’s purple “Depends” dress (oh, Tim!), Anya’s dog leash two-piece and Becky’s neon feathers and plants frock.

Of course I didn’t hate Oliver’s winning design, but I couldn’t see past those eyebrows. Totally freaked me out.

Lows:

Bryce — pee pee explosion was a hot mess. The structure of his top had spark, but like the judges said it didn’t fit properly. And the bottom? Awful, if anything he should have died the pee pee pads a complete opposite color than that baby blue that they come as.

Fallene — I still love her! I’m just disappointed she was almost sent home. Yes, she could have done better. But the skirt itself wasn’t that bad!

Joshua C. — He seemed like genuine guy and loved what he did. He just couldn’t work past the fitting issues.

So what you guys think? To steal a line from Joshua, was it trashion or fashion?

Project Pajama

29 Jul

So excited to be back in Project Runway Land, with Tim Gunn as king! And I’ll be posting weekly commentary on each episode. Did the judges get it right? CC’s pick for best and worst. Designers to love and hate and so much more!

Season 9 Episode 1: Project Pajama. For their first challenge, the designers were asked to create a fashion-forward garment from the clothes on their back — their PJs! My favorite of the bunch did not make the top 3 (dissappointed) because Fallene’s puking clown dress was a stand out! It was funky, unique and very fashionable. Fallene is my fave designer so far, just check out her own personal style! Check out lifetime.com for Fallene’s final look!

 The top 3 designers did not disappoint either. Two of three were fantastic. And how much do we love Bert?      His dress was fashion-forward and sexy (minus the styling of course). I envisioned a chunky and funky necklace, ditching the sunglasses and pulling the model’s hair away from her face. But he deserved to win!

I was disappointed with Anya’s piece. Although I like her, and those pants were amazing!, the outfit itself was dull. The top looked like I could have picked it up at any mall in any town. I’m not a fan of flashing the belly either, but I give her props for those pants.

What did you think? Let CC know! Until next week, PR fans!
