From Project Runway to Real Runway

He is quite the little ego maniac, but Project Runway's Christian may be onto something. In this week's episode, he used Reese's wrappers to make a texturized dress; one that made me think it was straight off the real-life runway. Lo and behold, I wasn't too far off. This Burberry Prorsum Rosette embroidered dress ($4,295) looks remarkably similar — and it was in fact, a part of the Burberry runway collection. I'm kind of loving that you can get a costly runway look with a few thousand candy wrappers. But also, is a textured look like this wearable?

I like the neckline of the project runway dress way better. The Burberry dress looks a bit old to me.

I agree with those who said this wold work on someone without curves --- otherwise you'd just be adding bulk to your bulky spots. I also really like Christian --- he makes good TV w/ his snide little comments. And I suppose he should have some ego since he's always done like 2 hours before deadline.

I definitely think it's wearable - I can see the Burberry dress on someone like Rachel Bilson or Kate Hudson (like Daisie said, someone without a lot of curves).

I don't like them. and the Project Runway dress does look like a very cheap version of the Burberry. It's very Forever 21 vs. the real thing.

its nice.. granted christian is verygood, but liking him!? please... hes a ego-centered person, that badmouths every other designer as their work, and thinks his stuff is the only one worth it out of the bunch.

It is a very creative dress. I don't think anyone could ever wear the dress and look pretty. Still it is a very interesting concept.

I think a textured dress it totally wearable, almost like a plaid. But I don't like Christian's dress just because it fits badly, which is weird because he is such a good tailor that his stuff normally fits perfectly. But this one floats away from her body. DO you see that bulge below her hands in that picture? and the fact that her boobs are completely lost. It's just not figure flattering. It almost reminds me of Andre's "doormat" garden party dress from last season (or the season before that... can't remember which)

Hidge. I don't care what your justification is, those dresses are hid-e-ous. That's pretty much the end of it.

I think Christian's idea was pretty genius considering they only had 5 minutes to plan their designs.. I also liked the twizzlers dress

I think this dress would only look good on someone without curves.

christian is pretty amazing, i think he's a character. and he makes great stuff. for being out of candy wrappers, that is a niceee dress.

Let me clarify - it's awesome that a $4300 dress looks like one made from candy wrappers. But personally, I'm not a fan of either. :)
