Good riddance to Victorya, I say. Her designs were never all that unique, and if I had to hear her talk about how she’s a very competitive person anymore, bodily harm might have been involved.
Her design last night was fug in a big way, and completely uninspired/uninspiring. Plus, she used a nude version of these blah Dais pumps from Stuart Weitzman.
I’m glad we’re done with that.
In other PR shoe news, we saw yet another use of the Patron Shoe of Project Runway 4 (the asymmetrical Versace mary-jane, which now seems to be gone from Bluefly… perhaps sold out with the aid of repeat viewings on PR) with this trench from Jillian, which was almost great, but then lost something in the execution.
Ricky’s winning outfit (which wasn’t my fave, I must admit–nice, but nothing fantastic) made good use of these wicked and excellent boots, which from the red soles, would seem to be Louboutins, but are hiding out there somewhere. Kit used them for the Hershey challenge, too, with an outfit I loved.
Rami went for the clunky Balenciaga nude sandals that went with his and Sweet P’s ready-to-wear outfit from last week. I think the sandals looked much better with the rougher, brass-button-enhanced look of the denim than they did with the floaty dress from last week. I’ve got to say that this outfit was gorgeous, and for me, either this look or The Whiner’s motorcycle-style one would have been crowned winner.
Sweet P brought these jeweled t-strap sandals back, which we first saw way back in the first episode on Carmen’s model. But do they show up on Bluefly? Seemingly not. They’re jeweled enough to come from Guiseppe Zanotti, but who knows.
We’re getting down into the final stretch on PR here. To paraphrase Heidi Klum, “Remember, shoes, this is a competition for you as well. The shoe paired with the winning designer will win a spread in Elle magazine.” OK, well, maybe not. But certainly a lot of popularity. I’m betting on those Versace’s taking the prize.

Farewell, Kit. I will miss your edgy, fun style. I will miss that you were the first one this season to use the shoes that I now officially nominate as The Patron Shoe of Project Runway 4: these asymmetrical Versace pumps.
They’ve been used 3 times now, that I can figure. First in Kit’s episode 1 outfit, then in Rami’s episode 6 outfit, and last night in Victorya and Jillian’s ready-to-wear look.
Long live the asymmetrical Versace mary-jane.
And what did other designers use last night? Well, sadly, we can’t see much of the footwear for the avant-garde outfits, which is a shame, because I’d really like to know what shoes were chosen to go with this fabulous dress from Chris and Christian. I can’t stand the little whiner, but I can’t call this dress anything but incredible.
Much as this dress is gorgeous and amazing and so well made, I have to say that I was partial to Victorya and Jillian’s look over this one. It was so beautifully made, so high fashion, and fitting into that English punk aesthetic that I love and adore.
It reminded me a lot of one display from The Met’s Anglomania 2006 exhibition that looked at traditional English fashions (in this particular case, hunting clothes) and the way they were appropriated by more transgressive designers like Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano.
Shoe-wise, those could be plenty of boots, but these Kenneth Cole “That’s the Point” boots are a good contender.
In other shoe news from last night’s ep, Sweet P and Rami may not have wowed the judges with their avant-garde look (which I agree was nice, but not out there enough), but their ready-to-wear dress was adorable. And these Balenciaga sandals (which look like they’re distant cousins to the Lego shoes), while not all that attractive in my opinion, tied the two outfits together well in terms of color.
My favorite shoes were the ones that went along with Chris and Christian’s ready-to-wear outfit, but I can’t seem to find them on Bluefly. Anyone want to hunt them down?
Fans of the Balenciaga Lego pump can rejoice this Christmas season. The lego shoe family has spawned.
Actually, there was a slight mutation in the reproduction process but don’t these rainbow colored shoes from the Fendi look like could be offshoots of the Balenciaga lego shoe? I’m (somewhat) a bigger fan of the Fendi rainbow flats and sandals, but only because they look more practical.
The folks at ELLE clearly agree with my assessment of the LEGO-like quality of these shoes.
I think they’re hideous.
And apparently Beyonce agrees with Kanye, rather than me, because she was sporting a pair at the American Music Awards last weekend.
The jacket was designed by Tina Knowles (Beyonce’s mom), who, of course, designs a lot of the clothes Beyonce steps out in for events. Who knows if the jacket was designed to match the shoes, but match it does.
I’m as shocked as anyone to say this, because I a) hate those shoes and b) think Beyonce rarely wears clothes that are flattering, but… drumroll please…
I like this whole look. Yep. I love how the jacket and shoes match. I love the hair and makeup. I love the earrings (which are hard to see in this photo). I love how the jeans (J Brand, which I can personally state are awesome) fit her and make her look curvaceous and fab without looking like they’re a size too small.
I still think the shoes are severely fug, but Beyonce is proving very well that the right outfit can make pretty much anything work.
Oh no! No! Not Jennifer Connelly! She’s been eaten by the Balenciaga Paris runway show. Eaten and spit back out, and she clearly needed some stitches to hold her back together.
In case you don’t remember the terrifying hideosity of the Balenciaga runway shoes from a few weeks ago, I’ll remind you, but with a warning to BEWARE OF EYE TRAUMA!!
Just because Jennifer didn’t wear Natalia Vodianova’s entire head-to-poor-imprisoned-toe runway outfit
doesn’t mean she’s made any improvements. The shoes are no better than the boots, Jennifer. Please return to your regularly scheduled look of “beautiful and interesting” ASAP.
(Thanks go out to the Fug Girls for catching this eyesore and bringing it to public attention).
