Project Runway All Stars
took to the streets with their host
for last week's challenge. They learned about graffiti and I learned a new art term: aerosol art. I can't wait to impress all of my snooty, intellectual, politically correct friends with this term ... aerosol art ... look ma I'm pretentious!
The designers were given all the tools they needed including the windiest day in NYC, which they didn't need, to create a
aerosol art pattern/print. The Project Runway challenge was to produce a wearable art piece.
Andrae is communicating with the Mother Planet. They're saying "make it work!" and he's replying, "huh?"
Winner and loser, hmmm...
The Bottom 3:
I'm with judge
about there being two dresses here. The top is the beginning of a beautiful and chic outfit and the bottom is a fail, especially with that eyesore of a hemline. To make matters worse (not pictured)
added a trim of piano fringe to the back which was awful. She tried to hard to be different and to be creative. I knew Laura would be safe and I'm glad. Not ready to see her go.
A halter, mermaid gown... so original and innovative... said no one, ever!
dear, the judges are beginning to question your taste level.
Suede cut out circles. Suede made a girlie dress. Suede Suede go away...."
The Top 3:
The most significant advice/criticism from one of the judges was
bad color choice of white for the bottom of the skirt. The guest judge suggested she use a color like red [I thought yellow]. Either one, even orange, would have been a better choice.
This was a smart and sassy look from
. The judges complimented the scale, proportion and wearability. It's a good dress, I like it too, though I hate the pompadour hairdo. It's distracting, dated and overdone. Yet not surprising. Have you noticed the designer's hair style? Yuck.
The clear winner was this creation by
. It was sophisticated and artful. Emilio allowed himself to be inspired by graffiti rather than to try and replicate an art form that he's not a master of and it worked. The only minor issue the judges had was with the belt. They felt it seemed unresolved. No big deal. Easy fix.
