Challenge 2

Wow, only two episodes and I'm already behind!

Challenge 2 is: make a maternity chic look for a supermodel.

It's going to be a real giggle trying to make one of my girls look pregnant...

Challenge 1

(Create a red carpet look showing innovation and your point of view as a designer)

And Lindsay Lohan is watching...

That Ari got knocked off right away was no surprise to me, I had her tagged as "auf" the minute she said "I don't do sketches" and went to stand on her head in the workroom. OTOH, I wasn't all that enamoured of the dress that did win, I liked the red flowing thing that Johnny did better than Christopher's textured poof-fest.

All Star Challenge Post-Mortem

OK, so I was glad to see the arrogant team, Jeffrey and Santino, knocked out of the competition right off the bat. Of the remaining four, my sentimental favorite was Sweet P. I also happen to think that she had the best of the four collections. I had no real opinion about the winner, Daniel V. (which is telling), but I was most disappointed with Kortu's lack of professionalism in her whining about coming in second "again." Get over yourself, Kortu.

Project Runway 6 -The All-Star Challenge

Create a three piece mini-collection showing your evolution as a designer...LOL...theme and variation on a party dress? Why not? And one of the looks must be "red carpet ready." Wondering what kind of red-carpet event a Blythe doll would attend...oh, and one last look with "unconventional materials..." I was going to have to make four anyway...this is a picture of the girls on premiere night watching the show from the Project Blythe workroom.

Pre-Premier Favorite

After looking at the previews on Lifetime, I'm initially throwing my support to Louise Black, who resembles the soon-to-be-released "Punkaholic People" Blythe. Not that Louise is punk, she's more Goth with a taste for vintage clothes and repurposing vintage embellishments. Check out her glove-top dress (in the casting section video.)
