Project Runway Episode 10: “I Get a Kick Out of Fashion”
What a spectacle on the most recent episode of Project Runway! You practically needed sunglasses to watch, with all of the lame, rhinestones, sequins, and beads. The designers turned to flashy fabrics and embellishments to create a new show costume for the famous and talented Rockettes, the dance troupe featured at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The Rockettes celebrate an 85th anniversary this year.
The guest judge was actress Debra Messing, who’s recently been featured in the series “Smash,” on NBC, a behind-the-scenes drama about the production of a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe.
One of the episode’s highlights was Heidi doing a dance routine with the Rockettes before introducing the challenge.
To dress the Rockettes is a dream assignment for some designers, but it was the end of the road for one of the competitors. Read on to learn who won, who lost and which designs the judges liked best.
Christopher’s cityscape embellishment wowed the judges.
Ven’s dress did not impress the judges. It looked more like an ice skating costume.
