Well, hello there!
I must say I was pretty darn pleased with the P.R Season 4 Finale!
talk about extremely talented designers bringing their A game!!!
I know,I know, its been a bit since last we chatted.....busy,distracted,ennui ,spending time with my littlest who will start kinder full time next year,....has kept me from dear bloggy world.
...but can you believe it? I have had e-mailed requests for my thoughts on the results of P.R. !Ah me,I simply cannot disappoint.
I'll dive right in!
I could not have been happier with the final 4,and believe a more deserving final quartet has yet to be narrowed down to, until this season!
I believe ,ultimately the final 3 were also the most deserving of showing at Bryant Park.
The above look was my favorite of Christians collection.
Maybe I liked it so much because it was not a jacket and pants,but I loved the drama and the proportion!Please do not get me wrong,I think Christian is a magnificent creator of jackets,and probably will make his fortune from selling these unique jackets as his signature item.
My only disappointment with the evening ,was that Jillian came in 3rd. This dress alone made me think she had won it.
...and then there was this extraordinary look. Talk about innovation and having a new and fashion forward point of view!
Jillian will make her career from creating her magnificent signature coats!
I was not at all unhappy with Christians win. I was actually quite thrilled.There will always be a need for Christians style (think Christian La Croix,or John Galliano),but we have seen his style of drama before,and I hope it never goes out of style,because I LOVE it!!!!!!!! Still, I think Jillian is the one to watch. She's the one with the new ideas.She has not yet narrowed her style focus down,we saw that in the challenges(heck we saw that in her model selection!). I think this was why she took the bronze.
This was the piece I loved most in Rami's collection! Wow! I didn't think he would win,but honestly,I think it was pretty close between all 3 of the designers!
Which brings us to Chris March...
...and his human hair adorned garments.I think it will not surprise you that I(wearer of table cloths as shawls(P.S. Rebecca ,I squirted diet RedBull out of my nose from giggling at your comment)) loved this little garment"notion". Alrighty ,it skeeved me out a bit ,but based on the presented garments from Rami and Chris,I do believe Rami won by a mere hair (I hear you groaning throughout Bloglandia!). Yes,it obviously skeeved the judges too.
I believe Little Edie would have voted for Chris!"And that's the revolutionary costume pour du jour.
You mix 'n' match and, Presto!
A fashion manifesto."*
I think I would have preferred her commentary over Poshbot's.
Obviously Chris was heavily influenced by the 20's. when it was, for a time ,quite fashionable to wear a Monkey Hair coat.
Skeevy ,believe me.... I know from personal experience!
Ah,yes... tis I in a monkey hair trimmed coat! I wore this when I was in the chorus of My Fair Lady. The costumes were rented from a big costume house in NYC. I remember both loving this garment AND being skeeved out!
.....and just why wasn't I Eliza!!!!????!!!
Oh yeah,I was a baby. Scary when you look at pics of yourself and think that!
Tommorrow,me and the fam will be off on a road trip to Marfa, Texas.
This is a little town where Giant was filmed and home of
The Chinati Foundation. We plan to eat crazy small Texas town Mexican food and pancakes. Read dumb books (for me ,the Buffy comics season 8),play Yahtzee,hike,antique a bit,soak upsome fine art,ya know the usual. See ya latuh gatuhs!
