Project Runway! (Er, season 2!)

Monday, July 17, 2006

Y'all are going to have to indulge me a bit this week. I know you are all about Project Runway season 3, but we over here have only just started season 2 this week. And we really, really want to talk about it. Just a little. Just the highlights. Okay?

We've gotten through the first three episodes and so far: totally hearting Tim Gunn, totally not hearting Santino, totally finding Daniel Franco to be a little too touchy-feely for our taste, but admiring his work quite a bit thus far. It seems like it's only a matter of time before the "bliss" starts getting thrown around, even though he promised it wouldn't.

I'm also in love with Diana Eng's amazingly modern nerd-chic designs (above). They're like artwork! With magnets!

I really loved the shape of Kara Janx's debut dress – the full cut, empire waist with the bow on the side. And Chloe's cool mini-dress was undeniable:

For both of these, I was like "eh." And then I was like "ah!" I've decided I really like the jeans-shrug thing in particular:

Okay, you can go back to discussing season 3 amongst yourselves now. We are trying to avoid the coverage, but that is proving to be impossible. We may need to resort to downloading from iTunes.

I like Diana, but Daniel V is the hands-down favorite.

Ms. Spinach said...

it's so funny because i know that daniel v. is a finalist (er, right?) but so far he's been underwhelming. i suppose he kicks it up a notch after episode three?

Give Daniel V. time. He'll win you over. He's not an innovator like Diana but he makes beautiful classic yet modern cuts (and is so cute). I like Chloe, too.

Speaking of fashion innovation. Check out the boom bag:
It may not be sensible for the girl on the go, but I like that it's a modern, feminine twist on the 80's boom box in a sleak, little package.

Tonight is my PR3 viewing party. My panel is up to 10 people!
