Project Project Runway #7: House of Cornish

These little beauties are called Sissi, by Christian Louboutin.


Sweet beaded shoe. $2695.00. Awesomeness. Can you hear them? They are singing.

The fact that these are so wildly far out of ordinary mortal’s price point for shoes makes this even more fun as a fantasy challenge. (I was bitterly disappointed at the shoe choices that were offered on the show. I was thinking more “Devil Wears Prada” and the “Vogue” closet. )devil-wears-prada-closet
Stanley Tucci, picking out shoes. Love.

I went very Avant Guard for this challenge
Incorporating animal print to be on-trend, I created a light wrap for a night at the opera or symphony.
The collar is high and exaggerated with a pleating detail.
The wrap comes off, and reveals a plain silk dress underneath.
The dress is red carpet worthy. It is finished front and back.
There is a dart detail in the back that makes it figure flattering. The over coat layer is so billowy, that it needs a fitted counter point.

(I am still recovering from the Hammer pants win. I am just decreasing the blood pressure medication I needed to get over it this week.) This week it looks like we go to the track. Who knows what they will throw at us.
