Project Runway 4, Episode One was a great start to a much anticipated season. I don't know if I felt this way because the wait was so long, or because I felt genuine interest in some of the designers. Plus the stars were in alignment when the judges put their heads together. The right two designers were chosen for bottom two, the right one was auf'd, and I can live with the winner (Frankly, the dress looked better on the mannequin than the model, and I am so over fleurchons as accoutrements that I was itching to snip that clunky gray flower off.)
My favorite character right now? Chris. I could identify with boyfriend as he huffed and puffed across the field towards the tents. I loved his attitude when he looked over the slim pickin's once he reached his destination and came away happy and content with his fabric choices. And then, when I saw the results, I knew he had major talent. If I had a long neck I would wear that fabulous dress this holiday season. Those colors rocked and the design was FIERCE. I love, loved, LOVED it.
Best potential snarker? Christian, so full of attitude and piss and vinegar. I agreed with the judges that the tailoring of his suit was different and memorable. But those puffy mismatched sleeves? Uggh. Ugly. Ick.
As for the female designers? So far none resonate with me, but it's early in the game yet. Ok, let me take back that statement. I instantly perk up when I see Sweet P and Jillian, and I can't wait to follow their progress.
In addition to the blockbuster PR bloggers (Blogging Project Runway and Project Rungay), Pink Navy has steamed into the fashion fray harbor. This is going to be the snarkies PR season yet.
