I was reading The Cut this morning and when I found an article about the latest Project Runway episode assignment: to design an outfit inspired by the Ringling Bros. Circus. Since I am actually headed to the circus tonight and wrote a post about it yesterday, I just had to post some of the designer’s creations. Which of these outfits are your favorite?
Mila – I’m liking the jacket from the back, but not so sure about hot pink leggings. They remind me of cotton candy.
Jay — I’m loving the strong jacket! Of course it reminds me of Balmain so what’s not to love? The red and gold definitely hints at a ring leader of a circus, but it’s not too flashy to be unwearable.
Seth Aaron — No, no, and just no! Apparently he made it past this round with is circus dress and is known in past episodes for his elaborate costume-like designs. Who knows, maybe he’s the next Alexander McQueen? I don’t watch the show enough to say, but what are the die-hard PR fan’s opinions of Seth?
Anthony — very pretty dress, but where’s the inspiration?? The judges say he lacks technical skills, and if I have my episodes right, isn’t he the one that made a pink bikini with washers (those little metal hardware thingys) attached?
Emilio — Hands down, my favorite! This dress is just gorgeous and I can totally see the circus inspired details without it being to over the top. I’m also loving the mix of stripes with polka dots…. I want this dress.
Any Project Runway fans out there? Should Istart watching the show?
