Project Runway is just a click away

Did you guys watch Project Runway last week? For those of you who didn’t, it was a good one – the challenge! 

For those of you who didn’t spend quality time with your DVR over the weekend - Spoiler Alert!

The contestants were challenged with designing an outfit inspired by the trend of “sophisticated 70’s.”  The big prize? The winning designer gets to sell his/her look on Piperlime. There were jumpsuits, there were sequins, there were maxi dresses. There were  also twists and turns– one contestant lost her money when shopping for fabric and had to create a look for just $11.50 and (the somewhat predictable twist) the designers had to create a second look for the judges with not much time  before the big runway show. 

One of our new guest editors for Piperlime, Olivia Palermo, was the episode’s guest judge alongside our faves, Heidi, Michael and Nina. Olivia did not hold back her opinions… and that is why we love her.

If you  didn’t get a chance to see the episode last week, you can watch it here on Lifetime’s website.  And, if you want to get your hands on the winning designs (Yes! That jumpsuit is mine!), just click here. But hurry, these looks are going fast (Bert’s dress is already sold out)!
