Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend and a Glamorous Look for Moms
I’m sure from the title of this post, you’re guessing that some sparkle is headed your way…and you’re right! The latest “Project Runway” challenge involved the designers having to choose from models dripping in a bevy of beautiful baubles and then design a look to showcase the sparkles.
This was definitely my kinda challenge. I always like to see a little sparkle and I’m even happier when there is a whole LOT of sparkle! While some of the designers appeared to be magpies like moi, there were others, AHEM Timothy, who were less than thrilled with having to design a garment around something as “superficial” as diamonds. Is it just me or does his devotion to sustainability continue to seem less than genuine? Digging through the trash at Mood was a bit much no?
And in the end it didn’t serve him well. He struggled the entire day and constantly asked for help. It really seems like his cause is being used as a distraction because he’s not sure what his aesthetic is. Truly talented designers just don’t need to distract someone from their work, but I digress. So, I might have said pretty much the same thing last week. Haha! Clearly sir Timothy is getting under my skin. Poor fella. Perhaps I’m being too hard on him. I’ll leave him alone so I can talk about how obsessed I am with my favorite look of the episode.
And said favorite was Kate’s design again. She was obviously psyched about this particular challenge. She does evening wear and she does it well. Her gathered gown was the stuff dreams are made of. Enough said.
As far as the elimination goes, Kahindo’s simplistic sheath sent her home. I’m all for throwing a little glamour into my casual looks, but if past seasons have showed us anything, it’s that a “Project Runway” designer’s job is to wow not underwhelm the judges.
For this week’s episode inspired outfit, I looked to Kate’s design once again. The gorgeous grey of her gown spoke to me, so I decided to style a glamorous grey look. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the need to get all dolled up! The hubs needs to take me out for a sparkle worthy date night, don’t you think?!?
