Project Runway Fashion Show Assessment

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…

Muse Take a Bow

Tonight I along with half of lower Manhattan (and a quarter of Long Island and New Jersey) saw MUSE at Hammerstein Ballroom. I’m still totally amazed at how such a TINY little man like Matt Bellamy can command the rapt attention of such a HUGE room.

Muse has a spectacular stage set up, with three large projection screens set behind the band, which used live feeds from cameras positioned in the venue to produce ginormous pictures like Matt Bellamy’s head, but about 30 feet tall.

It was fun when they panned the crowd and you could see all the supersweaty kids waving to themselves. (Was there like NO AIRCONDITIONING THERE OR WHAT?!)

Lots of oldies but goodies like “Time Is Running Out” and the first song that turned me on to Muse, “Plug In Baby”.

“Knights of Cydonia” was one of the encores…

On the way back to the subway Jeff pointed out the Project Runway window at Macy’s, so I had to stop and take a picture:

Awww… Look! It’s the Keith dress. If you listen to Tim Gunn’s podcast, seriously, you’ll get so sad about Keith having to leave. Tim makes it seem like Keith was really bummed out on the show…but he did bring it upon himself.

You Make the Call: Who Will Be Asked to Leave “Project Runway” Next Week?

…and why? Will it be Keith for submitting a portfolio of drawings of other people’s designs? Or will someone get kicked off “Project Runway” for…

…accepting money from the National Cotton Council of America in return for only designing in cotton?

…physically threatening another contestant?

…having 3 fashion violations on one outfit and failing to show up to their Fashion Police court date?

…not revealing a criminal record in his/her past?

…wearing white socks with sandals?

Project Catwalk Gets a Winner

I just happened to think to find out who won Project Catwalk. Since I get burned CDs of the episodes from KF, I don’t really know when the show airs, so I’m a bit behind on this stuff. I haven’t seen the actual last two episodes yet, but now that I know who won, I really want to see it for myself. As you may already know, Mr. Matthew B (of “Project Cuties” fame) was one of the finalists.

But did he win? The spoiler after the jump…

Your Prediction: Who Made It to the Project Runway Final Three?

Now that the Project Runway final four have showed at New York Fashion Week, who do you think has made it to the final three? (As you may know, one of the kicked-off designers shows their collection as a decoy in order to conceal the identity of the final three since that episode hasn’t aired yet.)

CHLOE

SANTINO

DANIEL V

Right off the bat I loved Chloe‘s stuff. There were some stunning pieces in there. I especially loved the gold mini-dress with jacket. I was also really shocked that Santino‘s collection was really subdued–aka, not looking like a Spin Art project. But in order to give his collection the full control-freak Santino spin, he actually sang and produced his own song for his runway collection. Oh if only it had been a full-length version of Timtino doing “Closer”!

However, Kara has got to give up the multi-colored wooley hats, and what the FUNBAG was up with Daniel V’s collection???!?! I really loved some of the pieces Daniel has done for the show so far, but his collection was so snooze bar! The colors were so muted, and besides the white jacket with beautiful collar (which totally reminded me of that gorgeous white Gucci coat from 2003), it seemed like he was totally coasting. Not to mention the resurfacing of the boob-shelf vest that he made poor Chloe wear for the makeover challenge.

Could Daniel’s poor showing be an indicator that he didn’t make it to the final three? Or do you think the un-Santino-like collection is a clear sign that Santino is “aouuuttt?

Discuss.

Does Heidi Klum have no love for last season’s winner Jay? And why is she getting snippy about getting snippy? More after the jump.
