I’m so pumped that Project Runway is back! It’s been gone for a while, and I’ve missed doing reviews. Here are my thoughts after the first episode. I’ve ranked them based on who I felt should be on the top first.
Let’s start with Erin, who was the winner of the challenge. How cool and calm was Erin, right? Everyone including Tim was freaking out on her behalf, and she knew what she was doing the whole time. The color and textures are so fun, but she manages to make it sleek. I 100% agree with the judges that she deserved to win.
I really thought Jenni was going to be in the top. I love the styling of the braids and slides. The fur coat and painted two piece was so playful, and I thought this was something girls would want to wear.
Tasha has a very cool street style, and I loved the metallic pants she made. It was different from anything we’ve seen in a while, and I liked the simple top with the strappy back. The little purse was also adorable.
This was a little safe, but I thought this was one of the most well-executed and sleek of the looks. I like the different layers and textures going on here.
I liked the styling here a lot. The concept is amazing, but I didn’t love the top portion of the dress. It was an unconventional challenge, and this was a runway piece so I’ll give it a pass. Plus, the long hair and earrings give off a boho chic vibe.
People said this belonged in the bottom? This was so pretty and it was made with plates! It definitely was one of my favorite pieces. I don’t care how literal it may be. It was executed perfectly.
I loved the minimalism here. It’s sleek, well-designed and the back is so beautiful. This is a cocktail dress I would totally wear.
This was a safer look. It’s good enough because it’s made with a mashup of materials and it works.
The more I actually look at Nathalia’s look, the more I actually like it. The silver material is gorgeous and the fur sleeves and sleek ponytail make it a solid look.
This was an okay dress, but it had the effect Kimber was going for. It’s a cute little New Year’s Eve dress, but it’s a little too plain and boxy for my taste.
Sarah needs to chill because this little two piece she put out actually worked out pretty well.
I had such high expectations for Lawrence, and I was disappointed that she didn’t make anything that great. At least she admitted it though.
This really shouldn’t have been on the bottom. It was a safe piece as well, but there were plenty of other safes ones that has way less creativity than this one. I’m on Heidi’s side.
If Brik just made the top into a black crop top and did a little top knot instead, this look would be fine. But the romantic top and hairdo doesn’t work with these pants. I like Brik, so I hope he pulls it together.
Ian deserved to go home. The fringe is pretty, but when I saw the Polaroids, I was instantly thinking it would be amazing and creative. This was so disappointing and it did deserve to go. But good for Ian for standing by it.
This was my least favorite look. It was so plain and basic. I personally thought this one had the least amount of design, and it was paired with those flats that didn’t really match.
