Project Runway: It's a Matter of Taste

Project Runway: It's a Matter of Taste

Last week Project Runway took cute to the next level and asked the designers to create an outfit for "fashion's hottest accessory" - the little dog!

Seriously, what's better than that face?

Nina Garcia, Vera Wang and Ivanka Trump were this week's judges, but the scorecard of who won and lost this week only tells half the story. Continuing her love affair with prints, Uli won with this flowing, patterned dress.

Check out the daring mix and match of printed fabrics.

In his subsequent podcast, Tim Gunn even went so far as to compare Uli to Diane von Furstenburg, the "master of the print." Snapz to Uli!

Katherine, leaving her sportswear comfort zone, lost with what I thought was a perfectly respectable, if rather plain, slip dress. Sure, it was boring, but did she deserve to go home?

Especially when you compare it to this mess from Angela?

"My story is about a British headmistress of an art camp in Paris, and the camp is called Jubilee Jumbles..." Huh?

Or the fact that Bradley's design was put together a mere two hours before he sent it down the runway and basically copied Daniel V's orchid dress from Season 2?

Or the fact that Keith not only refused to design an outfit for the dog, but then he LIED to the judges and told them that he actually designed four outfits before he stole an accessory off the wall and clipped it around the dog's neck!

To catch up on more of the dramatic details,

So much drama, so little time.

First, Bradley was nearly sent home on his birthday. He spent the entire first day staring lamely at a pile of shiny gold fabric and went in to Parsons on the day of the show basically ready to forfeit. He finally managed to pull something together, and in a bizarrely ironic twist, the judges couldn't stop raving! Nina in fact loved his design so much she wanted to show it in Elle! Ah, the fashion gods are fickle.

Second, Laura and Keith officially hate each other, big surprise. Laura calls Keith a "major sh*thead" and Keith calls Laura "Bad Mommy." Meow! (Wait, this was a dog challenge... woof?)

I would normally side with Laura on this one, except now I know she hates dogs. Look at this face when she finds out she's designing for a dog!

Apparently she doesn't have the "emotional energy" to invest in caring for "an animal like that." I officially dislike her now.

Laura also asked this week's dumbest question when she queried, "Are horses a fashion accessory?" Um, not since the 16th century?

Third, Vincent can't seem to tear himself away from the funny hats. This time, however, the model wasn't so compliant and kept trying to wipe the silly thing off his head.

So many reasons to love dogs...

The drama continues tonight at 10pm on Bravo. Carry on!

Ugh Angela better go home this week. Her clothes are always disgusting. I thought the green dress was cute despite being quite simple. Angela definetly should have gone home with the hideousness of her outfit.

Couldn't they have gotten a cuter dog for motivation. Angela should be ashamed for that monstrocity she's wearing. I don't really like Uli's dress either but then again Diane Von is not one of my fav designers.

I loved the Coat outfit too...the girl with the poodle, right? In fact, I might have liked the thought that went into the whole outfit better than Uli's (though I did love that dress...) Also, did anyone else think Vincent's outfit could have been bought OTR um...anywhere???

My favorite was the girl in the coat, but they didn't show her very long ... Next was the little dog with the writing on his outfit, I believe it was the girl up there in the printed sundress ... But, I loved ALL the dogs. So adorable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Totally caught onto the weird apartment thing, Mali Stacey...some thing's a little off with that woman. Possibly Mommy Dearest syndrome? Although I do love her style. I just don't get how she can so openly HATE dogs?? Just because you don't have time to invest in them doesn't mean you have to hate them!!

i wish i were 6' tall and a size 0 so i could buy some of these in the auction... well, not angela's but maybe some of the others... i actually like laura's designs, but if she hates doggies and has some weird kind of performance art thing going on in her NY apt with her 5 kids (did you guys see that??), we can't be friends...
