I LOVE Project Runway. I’ve watched it every season for at least the last six years or so, and probably have seen all of the other seasons via reruns. Tim Gunn is one of my favorite TV stars (he plays the voice of Baileywick on Sofia The First, did you know that?) and I would watch the show even if he was the only judge.
Now what’s funny about me liking (loving) Project Runway so much is that I have no fashion sense or sense of style. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. Getting dressed up to me is wearing heels with my jeans. Seriously.
I don’t normally blog about pop culture. I don’t know why, it’s just not my thing. I have actually thought about writing about Project Runway before but then thought, what the hell would I say? I obviously have no taste if I compare my notes to the judges’ notes. People can look at me and know that I am not a fashionista, and probably wouldn’t understand my fascination with Project Runway. I mean after watching for so long, you would think I would have learned a thing or two and stepped up my wardrobe. Not so much.
But after last week’s show, I can no longer keep quiet about this. I swore that if this look I’m going to show you won, I would blog about it. Because it is entirely clear to me now that not only do I not have a lick of fashion sense, but apparently I don’t understand fashion either…at all.
A lot of times (read: most of the time) the looks I love on the show are the ones the judges hate. Or the ones I think are absolutely horrendous are the ones the judges love. Take this one for example.
This look was last week’s winning look. The top is kinda cool, but it’s the drop crotch pants (or is that a saggy diaper?) that gets me. What the hell are those things? And who the hell would wear them? If I saw somebody wearing them, I would laugh. This was the winning look?! The one the judges couldn’t say enough positive things about. They raved about it! Loved it! Were blown away by even the styling!
I see a saggy diaper. Anybody else?
People, this is why I will never understand fashion. This is why you’ll never see me starting trends or wearing fashion-forward looks. Because to me? This is a joke. Nobody I know would EVER be caught dead wearing those pants. They are terrible to my no-fashion-sense-mind. Somebody, please, help me understand.
Are you a fan of Project Runway? Do you “get” fashion? Maybe you can explain it to me…
