Winner! Project Runway “Make It Work” Contest

Back in July right before Project Runway Season 10 started, a contest began on Twitter for anyone to show off their “Make It Work” moment by tweeting a photo to @ProjectRunway and showing off how you pull it off with clothing and/or accessories.  Of course, for those who know me I was definitely going to share how I make any outfit pop with color and it was a matter of which photo I thought would capture that best at the time.  So I chose the image below and sent off my tweet:

The contest ran for 8 weeks and each week a winner was selected.  Well, I am happy to say that I was chosen as the winner for the first week!  I was notified recently that I was selected and just received my prize in the mail which is a pair of glammed out scissors!  I was so excited to hear that I won and Project Runway is one of my favorite shows to watch.

An exact replica of what I got – studded scissors

So what’s next from me?  Perhaps I’ll be a buyer or start designing my own clothes!  Thanks Project Runway and Lifetime for choosing me as a winner!

Project Runway Season 10 Premiere

I was so excited for a new season of Project Runway to start that I literally raced home like a speed demon to make in time for the 9pm show!  I think with every season there is always someone who is way out there with their designs (Kooan), the elder (Andrea), and then drama queens (Gunnar & Christopher).  After that, there are the others who I can’t quite peg as anything yet.  One thing I will say is that whatever bucket you might fit into doesn’t matter to me that much, I really want to see what your design aesthetic is and if you can wow me with your looks!  So with that being said, there were a few I will comment on:

Andrea

I was definitely digging Andrea’s cool neon frames and her long earrings.  That’s where my love for her ended.  First off, just plain black and white colors is really boring without the proper pop of color.  And who would wear this type of dress?  I can’t think of anyone.  I could only see this circle dress worn in a theater setting or for someone who is trying to conceal that they’re pregnant or look pregnant without even trying.  How do you sit in this thing?

Design by Andrea. Would you wear this?

Beatrice

I actually like the concept behind this dress, pairing jersey with sheer, but the knit cape doesn’t go with this at all.  I didn’t expect Beatrice to get cut, since the judges steamrolled Lantie in her critique.  Gone too soon!  Since she is local, I hope to visit her store one day!

Look by Beatrice – Perfect for the Summer!

Buffi

I love that Buffi embraces color and loves to incorporate that into her look.  However, these 2 looks both look cheap.

Christopher

I do like the design of this dress and it does look like an easy, breezy dress, but I don’t agree with Christopher being the challenge winner.  The wow factor wasn’t high enough for me.

Kooan

He has a voice, he’s different, but is it a joke? Props for color, but as long as he’s in the running I feel like I will repeatedly be saying, “OOOOOOOOK.”

Lantie

It can down to Beatrice and Lantie in the bottom 2.  With Lantie’s take on making old dresses youthful, this one failed to make it’s mark.  The judges sounded like she was the one that would be eliminated with all the negative criticism they gave her look. The pasted on pattern in the front isn’t flattering, and I hope she can turn it around next week.

Ven

Ven is my front runner and the person who I thought would win.  The rose bustier was phenomenal, and the structure exquisite.  I loved the whole look with the clean lines and pleating.  He is definitely one to watch!

Look by Ven

Overall, the first show was fun.  I do think the designers need to work on how they style their models, especially hair and makeup.  Stay tuned for my thoughts next week, and go here to see all my fave looks on Pinterest!
