9:30 pm. Credits roll on Project Runway Season 12 Episode 10.
Cynthia throws her hands up in the air. Marcy swishes her tail.
Cynthia: Again. It happened again. Why do I bother? Why? Here is the dress that should have won.
|Justin’s Runner Up Look|
Cynthia: The challenge was to create a makeover look for a Project Runway Super Fan. Designer Justin had a few challenges.
1) His model is Mormon so the dress needed to be modest and cover most of her body.
2) She had recently lost a lot of weight so Justin had to create special undergarments.
3) She is (gasp) bigger than the dress form which unnervingly seemed to be a big deal for some of the designers.
Marcy: So most of them only design for dress forms and girls with coat hanger bodies? That is unnerving.
Cynthia: But not for Justin. He created that beautiful dress above that is sexy, flirty, and even skews young. And, he added a very thoughtful element. That white embroidery is actually his model’s signature. Just precious. What a sweetie.
Marcy: It makes me want to give Justin a big kitty smooch.
Cynthia: This is the dress that won.
|Helen’s Winning Look|
Cynthia: Yes, it’s a beautiful Oscar worthy dress but it’s not very special. Also, Designer Helen’s challenge was not as difficult as Justin’s since her model was model-tall and model-skinny. She was able to stay within her comfort zone.
And these were the Smug Judges this week.
|Smug Judges of Project Runway|
Cynthia: Yup. All model sized. Predictable, huh?
Marcy: It’s like they can’t see beyond themselves.
Cynthia raises her martini glass. Marcy raises her Friskies can.
Cynthia: Cheers to talented designers like Justin for sticking to their (Tim) guns and creating beautiful clothes for the rest of us – the real people of the world.
|Model Tristen and Designer Justin|
Marcy: Smooches and a big kitty slurp for Justin.
