Project Runway::Cover Girl

Project Runway designers in the sewing room

Heidi Klum is the quintessential cover girl model. So when the cover of Marie Claire was offered up for the win on last week’s challenge on PR, and Heidi as the model for their expertly designed creation, you can just guess how the scramble to win this coveted prize ensued. The designers put their thoughts into sketches, but something got lost in the translation for several of these guys. A cover look needs to be outstanding design-wise, color-wise, and truely unique. I can’t believe how may looks were created in this challenge with muted or even flesh like tones. Blech.

Some looks were awesome….

Ben sewing a favorite design

Ben’s fun colorblocked dress

and some others not so much.

Anna’s separates-losing look

And they sewed away, winner or not.

Auffed and The Win

But I was pleaseantly surprised at the outcome……from the king of glitz and glam himself!

Anthony’s Blue Dress won the cover of Marie Claire!

Anthony, with his pageant ways found a way to tone down the glitz a bit and drape this incredible design. This will definitely make a stand out cover. Can’t wait to see this issue hit the newstands in a few weeks.

So what will happen this week? And who in our blog contest is still in the running? Check in later for the scoop. And thanks again to our friends at Brother for their cool behind the scenes pics!

  1. The first design pic you have up on this article makes me sad to have missed the show – the designer used almost the exact same colours as our Bahamian flag!! Who’d've thunk that?!
