PRTCNJ: Challenge 4

The five remaining contestants and six remaining models in the Project Runway: TCNJ competition gathered at the runway for another exciting round of model selection.

Host Kristen picked names from the bag and BETRAYED one contestant but we won't get into that!!

Anyway, the contestants all chose their models and for model Kandi, it seems the spread in Elle magazine will forever remain just a dream...

Each week I learn more about who the designers in this competition really are--first the bald girl goes home, then the fat one, and now the one with holes in her chest. Obviously this competition is all about beauty so I'm glad to get away from it! Fashion isn't about beauty--it's about being a good person on the inside. Do my customers stick crumbled dollar bills into my thong because I'm beautiful on the outside?? No, they see my kind heart and my intelligence.

The contestants then were given their new challenge:

Design a wedding dress using only toiletries/sanitary items.

The challenge came with a special condition: although contestants could use items such as toilet paper, pads, dryer sheets or floss, they were required to incorporate at least one cotton ball and one q-tip in their design.

Designs were sketched, paper towels were ripped up, and Enrico was perplexed by a tampon dispenser.

And of course, immunity laziness once again affected the winner of last week's challenge.

But in the end, all of the designers sent their models down the aisle runway. Click to enlarge!

They're all so good! And ultra-absorbent!

Holy CRAP! You guys are making this *very* difficult!

Ryan said...

john: I agree. For the past challenges, I'd have at least one dress that stood out as particularly good or bad. This time, each is so wonderful in its own way.

I'm loving this contest [I first ran across it with the previous challenge]. Who knew toilet paper could look so good?

Tam said...

Arrrgghh. This is getting too hard. I'm not ruthless enough. I will consult with my assistant after work and hand in my results. Amazing job everyone.

To bad my friend Jen is off work sick. She's planning her wedding. Some of these designs might have inspired her and saved her some money. After all, paper towels and toilet paper is much cheaper than silk and satin. :-)

Dont worry Enrickyricardo, feminine hygiene products are like quantum physics to all gay men. It's too complex, we'll never understand it, and we have no NEED to understand it.


David said...

This is genius. I'm hooked.

Ryan said...

Polt: I can do quantum mechanics. I don't want to even contemplate understanding feminine hygiene products.
