If you don’t want to know what any of the final four’s collections look like, do not proceed after the jump.
On a side note, I happen to be shopping in NoLita on Saturday and stopped by the EMC2 event where Tim Gunn was signing bobbleheads and the Project Runway former cast members were puttering around. The line was respectable around 12:30, but when I walked by about an hour later it was ridiculous! The Bravo cameras were also there filming for who knows what.
Now to rip this year’s fashion show apart…
Now who would have thunk it, but my favorite collections were bad boy Jeffrey‘s and sour puss Laura‘s.
The following three outfits had me drooling all over myself and are the major reason’s why my pick for this season’s best collection is Jeffrey Sebelia…
All the fashion reviews of Spring 2007 are saying unusual use of zippers are a hot trend, and here Jeffrey is riding the crazy zipper train with his white ruffle-collared vest paired with a GORGE silver sequin tank top. Sporty AND sexy. Loves it.
Ok, I just about DIED when I saw this outfit. The green and white striped sateen blazer is so super-sleek 60s mod. Again, love the silver tank, and I <3 the detailing on the skinny pants.
Anyone who knows me knows I love stripes and poofy skirts, so my heart melted when I saw this dress.
Miss Laura Bennett had a great showing, full of elegant eveningwear. It reminded me of Oscar de la Renta–sophisticated, classy, RICH. Most of it was just kinda “eh” for me, but there were some real stunners in the collection:
Like this beautiful black lace beaded number. Very dramatic and lovely. Not something that’s really my style, but would look divine on someone like Cate Blanchett.
One of the big trends for spring is see-through pants, and this fits the bill. I love the optical illusion of the outline of the dress with the pants underneath. However, I do wish a different solution had been found for covering up the dear girl’s nipples. Was there a shortage of nude fabric somewhere?
Uli Herzner was…well…Uli–which meant that I was totally bored with most of the collection. However there was one piece, this silver high-necked mini dress that I thought was stunning. So very Kate Bosworth:
I love the bell sleeves and the detailing at the bottom of the dress.
Now, I love Michael Knight and all–I think that man is SO FLY, but I was just not digging all the shiny bold colored fabric he picked for the majority of his outfits. And lord knows I could never ever wear a lepoard print mini dress.
The collection was very 90s Versace meets Sweetface or something. As sad as I am to say this, Michael’s showing just didn’t do it for me. Sorry, but I’m never ever going to wear a hot pink shortsuit with a criss-cross closure neckline. Nope. Not happening.
