  • Project Runway's Top Six Designs

       November 11, 2007

    While the Hollywood writers' strike puts my favorite show, Heroes, in jeopardy, it also means more reality TV. Turn up your nose at reality TV if you must, but you'll be missing out on shows like the Amazing Race and Project Runway.

    While I love the Amazing Race because of its adventure and globetrotting (it really is a "valentine to the planet" as the Married Lesbian Ministers say), I love Project Runway because of the glimpse it gives us into the creative mind. It's one thing to admire a beautiful piece of art, it's another even cooler thing to witness the spark behind the work.

    In its first three seasons, Project Runway, which starts up again on Wednesday, has shown us lots of sparks and some incredible designs. Let me indulge my feminine nature and present my six favorite designs.

    6. Santino Rice - Season Two

    This turquoise baby doll dress was Santino's first, and best, design on the show. To me, this is all about the bold color, simple silhouette and feminine detail. Santino at his most beautiful and least crazy.

    5. Austin Scarlett - Season One

    The judges hated this dress, but women everywhere loved it because it was so frilly, feminine and pretty. Sometimes I think that fashion designers and editors forget that sometimes a girl just wants to be pretty. Austin would never forget that.

    4. Uli Herzner - Season Three

    Throughout her season, Uli created all of these incredible flowing print dresses. They were amazing. In her Fashion Week runway show (she should have won, by the way), however, she revealed a subtler, sexier side with a series of camel & metallic outfits. I love that color combination and Uli's use of it was simply perfect.

    3. Kara Janx - Season Two

    Kara finished fourth in season two, so she had to put on a "decoy" show during Fashion Week. To the producers' dismay, the decoy got far better reviews than any of the finalists. I picked this particular outfit because it has a ton going on but it somehow all ties together. Oh sure, you wouldn't really wear this, but it's a great example of how elements of runway fashion eventually trickle down to the real world.

    2. Jay McCarroll - Season One

    Jay's Fashion Week show was simply perfect. I love this outfit because it's casual, wearable and incorporates interesting graphics and traditional elements in a thoroughly modern way. I still think Jay is a genius.

    1. Laura Bennett - Season Three

    Laura's particular brand of upper crust elegance isn't my cup of tea. However, this dress from her Fashion Week show is simply spectacular. The way the beading blends from gray to yellow is like nothing I've ever seen. If I was six feet tall, weighed 100 lbs. and had gobs of money, this is so the dress I'd wear to any gala.

    Hopefully the Season Four designers are ready to "make it work".

    Nice outfits all. Not as fond of the winter one (#2) but still nice. Aside from the baby doll (Yeah, go figure), I really liked #3. You wouldn't wear that? I wish my wife would. Right now she wears jeans dresses that go from shoulders to toe. Looks like a muslim outfit. That Kara outfit is incredible.
