PROJECT RUNWAY ~ Thursday on Lifetime at 9:00 p.m.

This week rolled around so fast and it's time for another Project Runway.  I am ready for
there to be fewer designers in this challenge, it seems like it drags a little bit at this point
before it gets very, very competitive.  This week's challenge was another Runway first
with everyone designing for Nina Garcia.  She is an editor at Marie Claire magazine and
has been a judge on Project Runway since the beginning.  They were to design an outfit
that would go from work to evening events and had one day and $200.00 to complete
it.  Nina didn't like loud patterns, pleats, or a whole lot of other things that made it hard
for the contestants to shop for what they wanted.  Nina met with each designer and gave
them a lot of feedback on two different occasions.  Why some of them created what they
did from what she said is a mystery to me.  The winner gets immunitiy and the look will
be in an editorial in Marie Claire magazine as well as featured on top of cabs in New York.
It will be thrilling for the winner and wonderful exposure for an unknown artist.
The three outfits in the bottom were dreadful and I can't believe that the designer didn't
just cut it up instead of sending it down the runway.  Usually, there is some redeeming
quality, good tailoring, good fabric etc. but there truly was nothing for these three.
I don't know how they decided the worst one!!  I also don't know how they decided
the winner because all top three were great.  But they did pick Kimberley who designed
a beautiful gold colored top and tailored pants, it was stunning.  Julie is out but seemed
extremely sad and lost to be going and didn't seem to have any Plan B for her life, hope
I interpreted that wrong.  See you next Thurs.!!
