Project Runway, Episodes 2 & 3.

Episode 3 involved making an outfit for Barbie. I found it rather boring, as Barbie has always bored me. I did think Nick deserved to win though:

Episode 4 involved making lingerie and I was a bit upset with the winner, and with who they booted off. Since Episode 1, I haven't stopped believing in Santino. He's innovative and creative, yet his designs are all cohesive and thematic, reflecting an overarching vision. They criticized him for not communicating his ideas to his team. I don't think his ideas need to be communicated though. I was not there, but I can take one look at his designs and see what he's all about. Emmett had a horrible time doing that, and when I saw Santino collapse in anguish at Emmett's elf-like interpretation of Santino's vision, I felt empathetic.

I disagree with Nina, Heidi, the guest supermodel, and Michael Kors' replacement judge, none of whom found Santino's items wearable. Nina even went so far as to say they were 'aesthetically displeasing' and had been 'done before.' When Santino asked her to name names, she mumbled something about John Galliano.

A google search for 'Galliano lingerie' reveals this:

And these are Santino's German-inspired pieces, with his trademark ruffles and peasant feel:

What do they have in common with Galliano's lingerie, except for the fact that they both hold much visual interest? Bitch, please. And here is the winner, Daniel V's pieces:

Which one do you think looks like it's been 'done before?' (Avril Lavigne called; she wants her tie back).

PS. I really hope Bravo TV doesn't take down their Project Runway pics anytime soon because I've gotten too lazy to save them to my computer and upload them to my own photo hosting. If they do, this whole post, and probably all my future P.R. ones will be a series of white boxes with little red X's..
