I think that Christian must have said many prayers to the Project Runway gods after last week's prom dress challenge pleading for a contest that would allow him to shine. Christian's prayers were answered last night as the designers were asked to create an avant-garde look inspired by a specific hairstyle. No matter how extraordinary the clothing, model or photographer, bad hair can make or break a shoot or runway presentation. Usually the hair is inspired by the clothing, but in this case the tables were turned and the hair was the inspiration for the look. I have been known to be a little bit of a hair fanatic -- with my own that is -- so I was excited to see the designers' innovative interpretations down the runway.
Avant-garde relates to works that are experimental, innovative, and distinct. It pushes the boundaries of the norm, delving into fantasy, drama, and advance concepts. Although most of the challenges test the designer's innovation, this one in particular allowed them to exercise boundless creativity to construct a garment that's first objective was void of wearability. The loophole is that the designers were put in teams of two and had to produce a second look that translated their avant-garde creation into wearable fashion.
I'm 37 and I think I'm very pretty for my age and I've always dreamed of being a model, and now I have the confidence and know I can give others a run for their money. I really want to be part of this show. Everyone is always telling me I look so make younger then I actually I'm. Please tell me what I need to do, I really want this.
