I finally watched the finale of Project Runway. Here are my initial reactions to each of the designers/their collections:
Jillian-I liked her coats, fun sleeves. Neat pants. The helmets were awful!
Rami- 1980s meets draping. Ugh! I hated the blue part! The gowns were good though and left me wondering why the rest was crap.
Christian-His models were the best walkers. They worked the pieces which really did help. I really liked the feathered pieces and the hats.
Go Fug Yourself www.gofugyourself.com is a great website that pokes fun at hideous Hollywood fashion. They wrote a good piece for New York Fashion with their impressions. http://nymag.com/daily/fashion/2008/03/fugs_on_the_project_runway_fin.html
Who didn't know Christian was going to win 5 episodes ago?! I knew it was coming and all I could say was, "Pfffff!" He was the most consistently good of them all and deserved to win. I can't stand his personality though and I have a feeling he will do well for a couple of years, then he'll fade away. He's too young to have staying power I think.
Now comes this awful dead zone until episodes of good shows start up again.
