Did you catch last week’s Project Runway? As always I didn’t watch it the night it aired, but I did catch it on Lifetime.com. The designers had to transform a bridesmaid dress that each wore in a wedding and the bride told them – “You can totally wear that again.”
We all know that bridesmaid dresses are made to look hideous so that the bride stands out. I’ve been fortunate to only have been in one wedding in my life and that was more than 20 years ago. The dress was a buttercup yellow with white lace, however it looked more like legal pad with doilies thrown on it. The one thing the bride never said was that I would be able to wear it again. It was the 1980s so I’m sure you can picture a hoop dress with big hair – awful. I think now it would make a great Halloween costume.
The movie 27 Dresses sums up how most bridesmaids feel. One of the dresses shown in the movie resembles one that I wore, minus the orange flowers.
I’m not sure if I liked the judges decision on who won the Project Runway challenge, but I will at least say that Michael C. getting the win after he was thrown “under the bus” the week before was nice to see and made for a great comeback.
I enjoyed watching the transformation of the dress and the best part was the designers work on real women. I hope we see more of that. I think having them work with plus size models would be good too. The look on their faces is quite comical when they don’t get to work with “stick” figures. Some of the designer’s work is good, but lets face it many of the designs would never be worn by real woman.
What do you think?
