Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend so far! So one of my favorite shows,Â Project Runway,Â is back on the air for it’s 10th season! Their season premiere was this past Thursday, with their usual opening challenge of creating a look (which actually ended up being two looks) that shows who you are as a designer. They then showed their looks on the runway in the middle of Times Square in front of thousands of Project Runway fans and the judges. There were some definite hits, misses and a few wtf’s? But all in all I thought it was an enjoyable season premiere, there seems to be some pretty interesting personalities so there should be lots of fun and crazy drama this season.
With the return of Project Runway, I decided to try a new post series on KATNP where I take the top 3 designs from each week and create a real life outfit! Hence, Project Runway to Realway :] So let’s get started with Episode 1!
Our first look is from Melissa, who is all about the color black and though, you all know, I’m all about some bright and bold colors, this was probably my favorite look from this episode. It’s super sexy, and though it is all black there are still elements, such as the structured shoulder and the asymmetrical hem, that keep it interesting. To be honest though, if I were to wear this I’d still have to add some sort of color elsewhere, either in a piece of jewelry or a nice bold lip, I wouldn’t be able to help myself, haha! :]
Ven’s design honestly wasn’t my favorite, I felt it was a little too conservative. However, I will admit his handiwork in the top is amazing and I love the white blazer, it’s just something about the pants that put me off. Another way you can re-create this look is by keeping the white blazer and pink top, but swapping the pants for a pair of light-wash, high-waist, wide-leg jeans. Then add some platform wedges for a look that’s totally 70′s chic!
And the winner from Episode 1, Christopher! Loved this dress and how it just flowed behind the model when she walked. Get the same effect with a nice dipped hem maxi skirt and play around with the accessories, I love how the pointed gold arrow earrings give this look a little more edge.
And there you have Episode 1! Stay tuned for the rest of the season, it should get very interesting :] Have a fantastic Saturday!
‘Till Next Time…
