Project Runway is down to the last three designers – and it will be an all female finale! Just like S&C predicted (well, sort-of — until our anti-Kenley raid had us hoping Jerell would knock her off). But, Kenley brought it this week and Jerell didn’t. So, hooray for the ladies!
This last episode before Bryant Park had Tim Gunn making home visits and giving us glimpses of the designers’ lives. Korto’s family was the sweetest (did you see that spread they laid out for him?), and what a lovely woodsy studio she has. Tim visited Leanimal in Portland; they went on a bike ride, and he was so awkward and cute. Jerell showed us more of his sensitive side when Tim visited his family in LA. Kenley, the last visit, didn’t exactly lay out the welcome mat, but seemed happy to see him nonetheless.
We didn’t see too much of the designers’ collections because this show was all about the wedding dresses and the surprise bridesmaid design challenge. Both Jerell and Korto had over-worked wedding gowns and uninspired bridesmaid dresses. Jerell went too far with the grunge-glam look, so it was the end of the road for him. We wish you the best, Jerell! Kenley and Leanne had the top designs.
Kenley’s feathery gown is awesome, and we love the whimsical hat (reminds us of SJP at the SATC premier in London). For extra whimsy, we’re pairing these green Christian Louboutin satin slingbacks with the oversized bow.
Leanne’s wedding dress, and collection, was inspired by water and movement. Nina Garcia was right on when she described it as “modern and dreamy.” We’re pairing these gold Valentino’s because the bow reminds us of the sculptural elements in her designs. They’re not the same Valentino’s as last week, but similiar. In case you haven’t noticed, we LOVE bows.
