We take a certain amount of pride in going against the grain when it comes to reality TV critiques - and so it was with some reluctance that we found ourselves in full agreement with the judges who picked Victorya and Kevin as the winners of the second challenge in Episode 2 of Project Runway. We, too, thought Victorya's design was the best: simple, modern and feminine - with a twist.
Some more interesting take-aways...
- It's amazing what you can do with $15. Granted, the designers moaned and groaned about the funds they were given, but in the end, didn't they create some amazing looks? Goes to show that great fashion is truly about great design.
- Chris (our fave designer from Episode 1) is such a sweetheart - when Sarah Jessica Parker was introduced as the surprise guest, he actually started crying (with joy). Can't blame him - when we saw Sarah Jessica debut Bitten in person on The Oprah Show, we shrieked like a Beatle-crazed schoolgirl.
- SJP proved she can spot a good design when she sees one, so why is the real Bitten SJP collection such a letdown? Victorya's design will definitely give it a boost when it goes into production, but that line seriously needs a complete overhaul.
- Crazy Elisa and Sweet P actually produced a fabulous outfit despite their creative differences. We loved how it moved on the runway, and the cape would make a welcome addition to any woman's winter wardrobe.
