Well this week on Project Runway was certainly...interesting! I was actually really glad they did this challenge because I think it brought some fun to the work room and it got the contestants out of their comfort zones! The challenge was to create a piece for Heidi's children's line at Baby's 'R Us. The kids were SOOOO cute! But if it weren't bad enough that the designers were working with pint sized models, (thank God Ven was out, no? Can you just see him flipping out about REAL bodies?! The horror!) they also had to take care of 'babies' Heidi left them in the workroom. This sparked off some of the funniest comments of all season. Dmitry and Elena were especially disgusted to have to care for their babies while designing. Elena even nicknamed her baby, A$*hole. Too funny. Fabio seemed oddly attached to his plastic child and Melissa became completely overwhelmed. I was shocked that this season it seems none of the remaining designers have kids! How did that happen? Anyway I chose to base my design on this wicked cute little piece Dmitry made. This kid looks like he just fell out of a video game and while I think it is a bit too modern for some parents personally, I'm in love with it. It's so graphic and fun! Here are the nails!
I used butterLONDON Pillarbox Red for the base and then used a Models Own Nail Art Pen to outline and add the truck detail. Sonjia won this week for her boys outfit which was warranted. It was much more accessible to the average mom. Christopher also won with his girls outfit which was SO cute even though the mother of his model seemed embarrassed by it. Elena went home this week and I really felt like it was unwarranted. Melissa should have gone home for sure since her whole outfit was basically a throwaway. But I digress. Did your favorite win this week?
