Geo58 Former NFL Pro Bowl Junior Seau dead at 43
Anyone who knows anything about professional baseball and the Boston Red Sox knows about the “hot streak” second baseman Dustin Pedroia is having, leading both the American and National League is hits.
Anyone who knows anything about the fashion industry knows about the famous legendary designer Diane Von Fustenberg and her incredible fashion runway shows. Pictured below with Tim Gunn in the canter and guest judge Fern Mallis, from IMG.
So our gallant crew of eager designers had an opportunity of a lifetime, create an outfit, based on Diane’s sketchbook design, for her Fall Collection and the look sold exclusively to all American Express card holders worldwide. She told the designers it should be something, “Marlene Dietrich from the 1930-40’s the look should resemble a woman traveling like a spy from Berlin-Shanghai-and back to NY.
The nine remaining designers had 15 minutes to “visit” the exclusive sample room of Diane’s and take any material they wanted to create the look of a young fashion designer’s lifetime. They had 10 hours left on the first day to work and create a “layered look” to please her on the runway showing the next day.
Kenley decided to just forget about the layered look entirely and make one amazing and gorgeous multi-colored reddish print with a black collar and black trim on the bottom of the dress. One of guest judges mentioned that Kenley could have hit a “home run” if she had included two more pieces for a “layered look,” that both Heidi and Diane were looking for. But Diane gave her credit for her skill and craftsmanship of the garnet.
Joe decided to make a hooded shawl, red pinkish top but the judges commented on it’s poor design, much too Shanghai and he was lucky to stay this week. Stella went too “Transylvanian” in her cape design as Michael Korrs commented and was sent home.
Jerell made this funky jacket, top and mini skirt design which had model look lovely with her air force hat.
Korto came through this week with a gorgeous black and white swirled print, Diane commented on the choice of a yellow dress and Katrina’s little jacket which was both, “beautiful and captivating” as the judges mentioned during the questions after the runway show.
I mentioned hot streaks, so now Leanne fresh from last week’s win, she has immunity, she doesn’t just want to slide into the competition, no way. She goes for it and creates the ultimate show stopper which the judges raved about. A slinky relaxed, long black gown with ruffles in the back, exquisitely made, very sheik and I loved the cute very feminine short taupe jacket which resembled a British Raincoat worn by the detectives at Scotland Yard.
Two wins in a row, can she go for the magic three, no other designer has ever done that before. I hope she keeps the hot streak alive!
