Would You Let a Project Runway Designer Create Your Prom Dress?

What's "horrible and tacky and gross"? Last night's Project Runway challenge, according to Christian. The designers were asked to make prom dresses according to the specifications of some very opinionated high-school girls. I can't blame the girls: Who doesn't want to look good at prom?! Kevin was stuck in memories of his own Jersey prom, Rami twisted up a matronly frock, Ricky washed out his client, and Christian earned a berating from Nina Garcia herself. After all the mess that went down, could you confidently say you would put your prom dress's destiny in a PR designer's hands? If so, which one?

Victorya's dress is FAR too dressed down for prom. it looks like a dress that a girl would wear to a bar. albeit, a bar on the swankier side but still; a bar. as for Christian's client... who the HELL chooses brown for a prom dress? who the hell chooese brown for ANY dress ?? the thing with brown is you have to sprinkle it in gingerly so you don't look dowdy. she had a ruhtawded idea for a dress, a bad attitude, and was a difficult client. she basically loses at life. and am I going crazy or what ? does NO ONE else see these clothes that Sweet P is making?? she's horrible! she doesn't have any talent! she manages to srape by every episode, and I bet you one reason why they let her stay is because she has tattoos. I bet you five friggen dollars. she has no natural eye for fashion, she doesn't know how to make anything besides a t-shirt. she doesn't know what she's doing! and that's just what I think about these three. just had to rant!

Sweet P was robbed. Victorya's dress was not fun at all and I agree with Leahtron, Christian should have been gone!!I will miss Kevin. I loved his work.

i actually really liked Rami's dress. if he would have added some sparkle, or made it longer, it would have been better for prom, but it was very elegant and well-made, i thought. and I am PISSED that christian didn't get the boot.

I like Victorya and thought her dress was pretty. Loved that color with the jewel neckline and the red shoes make really pop. I didn't go to my prom either, but if I did I would totally let project runway make me a dress. A free dress? if it sucked, I'd just go buy a new one.

I would say it depends on the designer because some of those designers are down right crazy! I mean I understand they have a vision but they won't have me looking all jacked up for my prom! If I liked their past work I would let them - who doesn't want a custom made dress and I know they get it for free! Once in a lifetime.

I was all hating on Sweet Pea's dress earlier, but from this angle, it doesn't look so bad! Just... don't... move! Chris's dress was the only one I liked a lot.

Can you imagine what Christian's dress would have looked like if he listened to everything that girl had to say??? I think he did a great job with what he had to work with~ I LOVE KIT!!! I want her to make everything I wear!

Karla, I love Chris's dress too! I would love to have a dress designed by Kit, Gillian, or Christian... I think a huge part of this challenge was having the girls' input!

Ugh, Christian's client drove me insane. I was also surprised by the short dresses-- everyone wore ball gowns to my prom, and that was only a few years ago.

Some of the dresses look pretty good! And age-appropriate too.

haha i find this extremely funny. I actually go to high school with all these girls and that girl maddie is a joke. This guy christian shouldnt even take it seriously at all. (I think maddie has mental problems though and thats why she flipped out on him) But everyone messes around with maddie in school too because she's so weird.

i wouldnt let them design my prom dress. not because i thought the dresses were bad.. but my prom dress was already beyond gorgeous. :) all i want to know is why didnt ricky go home? hes only had one decent design so far. his dress made that poor girl look like a box, it was boring, and the color made her look washed out. it was definitely the worse. im so sick of him. he shouldve been aufed weeks ago.

I felt bad for Christian, and I agree that prom is slightly horrible and tacky. I did go to mine, out of friend pressure, and it was no great memory. But I'd def get an outfit from really any of these designers. And it was a shame who went home.

Nope. Never went to prom, and if I could do it over again, I still wouldn't go. :)

I hated this episode. Mainly because a great designer and an AWESOME! (Sorry, I'm a Kevin fan) designer were in the bottom two. They NEED a Project Runway all stars. Also, I hated Cristian's girl. She seriously bugged me.
