LJ Runway Monday: Larger Than Life (PR 8:2)

August 8th, 2010 (11:49 pm)

Heidi: On the most recent episode of Lifetime's Project Runway, the designers were asked to create a look that defines the Marie Claire woman. The winning look would be featured on a billboard in Times Square.

Summer: To present Becks an additional challenge, we gave her some extra time but also told her she had to create looks for Heidi, Barbie, and me to wear this week.

Barbie: And we think the designs she created match our styles to perfection. Summer looks like the girl next door, I look chic, and Heidi looks like--

Heidi: [glare] --the sexy woman I am.

Barbie: Of course that's what I was going to say.

Summer: For her model's look this week, Becks chose fabrics of lace and sheer organza.

Barbie: And I chose the fabulous Dallas to be her model.

Heidi: Ready to see what she created?

Necklace of lemon yellow crystals and hematite designed by Becks.
Because of the sheer lace of the bodice,
Dallas is wearing a strapless bra in the same color as the dress's skirt.

Just like the designers on Project Runway,
Becks got the opportunity to manage a photo shoot with Dallas.

Was her work good enough for a billboard?

Of course!

See you next time on the runway!

Thanks, Lindsey, for allowing me to use your painting for the photo shoot and billboard background.
