Project Runway: Taking Fierce to a New Level

So I just watched last night's episode of Project Runway - The Unconventional Challenge - where the designers had to make a garment with materials bought from a pet store. Talk about fierce. I always love the unconventional challenges because it really brings the creativity to life. I said earlier this week that I have no crafty skills whatsoever but I do admire those who can bring life to the most mundane things - like pet stuff.

I must say, I really hated Bert's attitude last night. He won last week and thus had immunity from elimination this week and it seemed he was content to just coast on this fact. He sucked. You sucked, Bert.

Of course, I must highlight my Trini girl, Anya first. Her design was built from leashes and dog rope toys .

It looked good but when I saw the top, I thought instantly of last week's design.  I just hope we see something completely different from her. But she is safe and lives to take part in another challenge. I love that I can watch my show and hear someone who sounds just like me.

My favourite though for this week, and he almost won it last night was Anthony Ryan's bird seed dress. I thought it was spectacular and if you did not know it was made from bird seed, you would probably want it. It looked great...amazing on the runway and was well executed for sure.

I also liked Joshua M's aquarium stone top and snake cage netting circle skirt, though I agree with the judges that his styling was just too much. The makeup was too garish, the shoes were hideous and the little tag thing hanging off the belt was unnecessary. But his design was gorgeous. I am amazed he made that pattern with the different coloured stones.

The winner though was Olivier, with his blouse made from a dog bed and the skirt made from hamster cage filling. The model's eyebrows really did not work for me though. Looked very retro Star Trek.

Next week the designers will work in pairs. Ugh. That can either make or break your design, depending on the person you are paired with. But what is also interesting, it is a fashion show featuring models on stilts so the designs are going to have be larger than life. Interesting to see how they use fabric and creativity to create a gorgeous, larger than life look.

Love this show. And does Heidi Klum ever gain weight? My God!

  1. Stilts?!

    I actually think Anya has a possibility to do really well next week - with our Carnival culture and everything - she should be able to come up with something spectacular!

  2. She will be teamed up, so depends on who her partner is and whether he/she can see the vision.

  6. Bert's attitude sucked! And so did that dress! I didn't like Oliver's outfit. I thought Anthony Ryan should have won! The birdseeds was innovative and it LOOKED good! Anya is going to need to step up her game! The shirt was Just cute. Nothing else. :-(

  7. I did not like the fit of Olivier's design on his model but I think he is very adorable. I think Anthony Ryan should have won as well. It was so well done, that dress. Well, I loved Anya's look but it did not wow me. But I am not complaining - she was in the top 3 last week. She just needs to amp it up over the next few weeks. Terrified of this group challenge next week. But it should be interesting!

  8. I just had a chance to catch up with Project Runway last night on demand. I am sooooo impressed with Anya's designs, especially since she has very little experience. I always love the conventional challenge, and I am always impressed by what the clothing actually turns out to look like. I really like Olivier's dress. I would totally wear it. I would also wear Anya's top. I love PR! And the answer to your questions is No, Heidi never gains weight....except when she's pregnant. And then she bounces back so quickly! Love her though!

  9. I love PR too! It is even better that Heidi Klum is so down to earth and not as narcisstic as Tyra...could never watch ANTM for too long.
