Dancing queen

I loved the Project Runway drag queen challenge. I loved the queens, who are so much more entertaining and so much more fun than the usual models (yawn). I loved the return of the beloved Chris March. And, I loved the much-talked-about, everybody’s-new-favorite-Tim-Gunn-line, said to the increasingly annoying Blayne, “It looks like a pterodactyl from a gay Jurassic Park.” Holla!

It was très difficult to find shoes spectacular enough to pair with these over-the-top designs. My favorite design of the night was Terri. Girl has a bit of an attitude and it shows in her clothes. Her designs always have many interesting elements, and her creation for Acid Betty was no exception. These multi-color gladiators definitely have some edge, but nothing can beat those platform boots (I love how one ties in with the stripes on the kimono-brilliant).

Joe’s Elvis-turns-Sailor outfit was the winning design. It may have been a little safe, but there’s no question Varla Jean Merman was loving it. I chose these round-toe platforms for her naughty nautical look.

As far as cocktails – definitely something with wasabi for Acid Betty (bloody mary, martini), and maraschino cherries for Varla.

  1. Excellent shoe selections. I was annoyed that Jerrell’s dress was in the bottom. I loved it! I loved that he incorporated the queen’s love of vintage wear and added that big color! Also loved the colors. They would be great for fall!

  2. I was surprised the Terri/Acid Betty duo didn’t win. She is fast and not scared to go there. I find this season boring relative to the previous seasons. I feel Terri is a good exception of being able to be innovative when she needs to, but not do repetitive techniques or come out with something that is a big old, er um, mess-licious design. It was a mistake I feel to choose more tenured designers.

    Love the website and PR commentary and shoe match-ups. Brilliant every week!

    S&C agrees that Jerrell should NOT have been in the bottom 3, esp. since Blayne’s “wings” were falling apart on the runway. Yes, it would have been better if he’d shown more leg, but the overall design (loved the high collar) was v. good. Also agree that this season seems to be “missing” something compared to previous ones. I blame it on Bravo–the show is moving to Lifetime next season, so they have little vested interest in keeping it a top-rated show.
