LJ Runway Monday: Race to the Finish (PR 8:9)

September 26th, 2010 (10:44 pm)

Heidi: On the most recent episode of Lifetime's Project Runway, the designers were asked to create a high fashion look and a ready-to-wear companion to appear in a L'Oréal Paris ad.

Barbie: The designers could make choices from themes based on L'Oréal's new eyeshadow palettes: bright, matte, metallic, crystal, and velvet.

Summer: After Tim Gunn warned the designers that velvet would be the most challenging, of course I picked it for Becks.

Barbie: And I picked Noelle to wear velvet, because she's definitely a high-fashion model. Then I chose Cari to model Becks' daytime look.

Heidi: Speaking of looks, earlier in the week, I ordered more glam looks for Barbie, Summer, and me from Becks. This is what she delivered.

Barbie: I'm happy!

Summer: Me, too.

Heidi: It could have been shorter. Now let's see if Becks can make L'Oréal happy.

She wore blue velvet.

A close-up shows the beading Becks used on the shoulder straps and earrings.

Remember these little flowers shaped from sequins on the velvet.

A great silhouette from all sides.

For a daytime look, Becks held onto the dark blue, with ivory flowers splashed across the dress.

She then used a belt that would imitate the beading details of her runway look.

And she styled Cari a little more playfully.

See you next time--- a L'Oréal Paris ad!

Happy birthday to Y&R writer and PR viewer Tom Casiello!
The doll Cari is a gift from (and named for) Cari.
Barbie's and Cari's belts are from High Fashion trims.
Summer's necklace and Noelle's earrings were designed by me.
