Project Runway Power Rankings

So I’ve been MIA with my Project Runway recaps because of my busy schedule. I did, however, finally catch up, so I’m going to do a little power rankings post.

By the way, this recap is based off of both design and personality, so some designers might be ranked a little higher purely because they’re entertaining. I also included my favorite look from each designer.

  1. Laurence– Laurence is such a badass on the show. After the first episode, I was a little disapointed, but I love her sleek, edgy aesthetic. Her looks are always chic and expensive looking, and honestly, I just love her personality too. Her leather jacket and dress from the last challenge have been my favorites so far.House of Bouton: Laurence Basse & Tasha Henderson
  2. Rik– Rik is also someone whose personality I really like. He just seems so humble about all the success he’s gotten so far. His designs are really sleek as well, and his swimsuit was one of my favorite pieces from this season so far.Rik Villa's Project Runway Season 15, Episode 4 Final Look
  3. Erin- Erin is clearly a force to be reckon with. Her aesthetic is really quirky and her emebellishments are super unique. I really liked the black light challenge because she used this concept of turning something pretty into something sexy.Erin Richardson's Project Runway Season 15, Episode 3 Final Look
  4. Jenni– Jenni is another person whose style is really refreshing and modern. Her dress from the last challenge was stunning and the color and embellishment made it look super expensive.Jenni Riccetti’s Season 15, Episode 6 Final Look
  5. Dexter– Sure Dexter got a little carried away with Erin, but I didn’t think his fringe dress was that bad. I really started liking Dexter after the team challenge. He was authoritative but still kept his fun personality alive. He’s definitely someone I can see going far.House of Bouton: Dexter Simmons
  6. Roberi– Roberi’s swimsuit was awesome in the fourth episode. It was such a playful print. Personally,  I like how whimsical and imaginative his designs are. Roberi Parra's Project Runway Season 15, Episode 4 Final Look
  7. Mah-Jing– Mah-Jing is so high because I love his personality. His vest was the one piece I liked of the collection, and I thought his tears over Tasha was so sweet.Team Unity: Mah-Jing Wong
  8. Brik- Brik should technically be at the bottom based on his first few designs, but I like Brik’s personality and energy on the show. He has a lot of funny sound bites, and it’d be cool if he made a comeback. Brik Allen’s Season 15, Episode 6 Final Look
  9. Cornelius- Cornelius is such a character. He’s so snarky, but I love the drama he brings. His designs aren’t my favorite, but the emoji dress he made was so amazing. He should’ve won that challenge.Cornelius Ortiz's Project Runway Season 15, Episode 3 Final Look
  10. Nathalia- Nathalia is on the bottom because she just isn’t that memorable. I love this look below. It was definitely a standout. The fact that she’s on my bottom shows how talented the designers are this year.Nathalia JMag's Project Runway Season 15, Episode 3 Final Look

Girl Meets Upstate Fashion

Girl Meets World came back with Girl Meets Upstate, and I really enjoyed the episode. Here’s my review on the episode: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/girl-meets-world-review-shawn-and-maya-find-themselves/

As far as the fashion, even though Riley and Maya wore similar outfits, I liked different pieces more. Here’s what I liked from each of their outfits.

For Maya, I really liked this maroon vest. The sequined pattern and velvet is a lot for a vest, but Maya pairs it with a more understated lace up top to balance it out. Sabrina Carpenter always adds a more boho vibe compared to Riley’s more preppy feel with her red lace up top.

The Bachelorette Review: Alex is the New Chad

This episode was pretty boring. I’m going to recap the episode and rather than list my top 5, I’ll put my thoughts on everyone since there were only eight people anyway.

Photo from Jojo’s Instagram

Jordan: Jordan and Jojo. She just likes him so much. I didn’t mind Jordan at all in this episode. I’m just wondering if Jojo does pick him, what is the narrative? The edit isn’t exactly showing a love story.

Luke: I  think Luke would be a great choice for Jojo because he seems genuine when he’s with Jojo, but I also like the scenes when we get a glimpse of his personality. His “Are you guys going to kiss?” moment was actually really funny, as well as his “So where are we going next week?”

Robby: Robby is another guy who would be great for Jojo. He came out of nowhere, but it would be interesting if Jojo chose someone who wasn’t edited into the show until recently. Even tonight, we barely saw them together, but they both seem confident about their relationship.

James: Oh, James. I really love how humble James is. He didn’t have to throw Jordan under the bus because he’s got a great personality. Jojo isn’t going to pick

Chase/ Derrek: This two on one was really hilarious in a cringeworthy way. I really like Chase, but he is a little hard to read. He puts together these cute mini dates for Jojo, so I’m not sure why he needed to express anything so blatantly like Jojo wanted. Derrek’s crying was edited in such a ridiculous way.

Wells: Wells is such a sweetheart, but clearly not a match for Jojo. I’d love to see him in paradise.

Alex: Why did Jojo keep Alex? There’s no way she’s picking him. He’s constantly instigating everyone.

Other Random Thoughts:

  • I’m loving Jojo’s style. Her black dress with the leather jacket was so cute. Her blue cocktail dress was also stunning.
  • Lauren and Ben are getting a reality show. I love them, but what could it be about?
  • Derrek is going to have memes with that limo scene.
