And the winner is...

Shirin takes the top spot on Project Runway. I really loved her dress and the stitching detail made all the difference. I must say Haley & I named the top 3 and the bottom 3 this time, so there really weren't any surprises. It seems the editing is such that you really don't get a good feel for everyone, but it's hard with so many designers. I thought Ra'mon was on to something with his color-blocked dress, but once it got labeled as the bowling ball bag, there was no turning back. I see in his bio that he's a designer for Kohls and that dress had a very Kohls feel to it. I still like his idea, but it would take a very confident pregnant woman to wear it. And the egg? Creative but not realistic. And the look on Malvin's face told me he really thought he had the top design and had no idea why he was going home. With Malvin and Ari gone, it seems like quirky is out this season.
It was funny to see all the stick-thin models with these huge bumps. I know when I was expecting, it was more of an all-over effect. I don't think there was one dress last night that would have worked for me.

We're happy about the Models of the Runway after party show. It's been interesting to get to know the personalities a little. Don't you think Fatma is a little delusional?

Oh, and our winner is Jules, so email me your details and a copy of Altered You! will be on the way.


  1. I don't watch the Models show but I love Project Runway. And I did love the winning dress this time. Did you happen to notice that the all-female judging panel seemed a little more polite and constructive in their critiques? At least that's how it seemed to me.

  2. Karin, I am posting a book review on my blog at on Tuesday, October 6th.

    I love the book!!!!
