Getting Graphic: A Black and White Look for Moms
I simply can’t believe that the next episode of "Project Runway" is the finale of the tenth anniversary season! Can you? I have thoroughly enjoyed this season and am bummed that we have to say goodbye to it soon. I love my kiddos to the moon and back, but having “me” time every Thursday without fail has been…in a word…GLORIOUS! Thank goodness the next season of "Project Runway All Stars" premieres on October 25. I don’t know what I’d do without my "Project Runway" fix. Plus, I’ve gotten rather used to the hubs taking over bed and bath time. Haha!
So, if you watched the last episode, you know that nobody was eliminated. It wasn’t exactly because the judges were blown away by all the designers and they just couldn’t narrow it down to three. It was because they weren’t really blown away by any of them. They took exception to the styling of all of the designers’ looks. Styling has been paid close attention to by the judges on every season of "Project Runway", so I was surprised that the designers didn’t do a better job with that. Michael actually liked Fabio’s uber clunky ankle boots, but they definitely weren’t this gal’s style. I can totally appreciate his vision though. I love seeing a designer who’s one hundred percent behind his concept! Dmitry also showed no chinks in his armor, while Melissa and Christopher seemed to struggle with their confidence levels a bit.
Styling aside, the judges were pretty underwhelmed with most of the designs and basically threw the gauntlet down to the designers to step it up for the finale or else…
I’m definitely curious to see what changes they make. There was a whole lot of black on that runway, apart from Fabio, and I wonder if the other designers will inject some color into their collections or stick to their guns? Only time will tell.
I happen to love a sophisticated black and white palette, but I do like to add some color to a black and white look via a bold lip or accessories. For this episode inspired outfit, I included some emerald pumps for a fall appropriate pop of color!
