We are getting close to crowning the next Project Runway winner. The last episode challenged the designers to create an evening gown inspired by flowers found in the New York Botanical Garden.
Let’s start with the winners:
Jerell – The only guy remaining so he plays with fruit and bobble head dolls back at the hotel to keep himself company. He also leads the let’s-throw-Kenley-to-the-wolves-pack. He wins the challenge, but his dress is not without its problems (the bust, hemline, wrinkles). I do like that it is a kind-of funky eveningwear look. Most of his clothes seem wearable, but still have an edge. So, we’re pairing these Christian Louboutin pewter pumps – aptly named “Scissor Girl,” for the cross-band and stud detail.
Leanimal – She loses a bit of her confidence this week. Maybe it was repercussions from that near bee sting. She still manages to pull off the next best dress. Her soft, flowy, lavender gown is quite lovely. Also lovely are these shimmery Valentino pumps with the side bow. I heart bows.
And, the losers:
Korto – She designs a super-flattering silhouette (she always does), but goes overboard with the bright fabrics, and why oh why did she use that lace?
Kenley – It is too exhausting to continue with the Kenley-attitude-bashing. We’re done with that. And her reptilian dress.
Episode concludes with tears galore – everyone is an emotional wreck – but, it is all for not because no one gets auf’d.
