In or Out: Elizabeth Banks in Prada
It’s odd. We consider ourselves among the world’s foremost experts on all things Project Runway, but we just don’t recall hearing anything about Elizabeth Banks being a guest judge.
Elizabeth Banks attends the premiere of “Our Idiot Brother” in Los Angeles in a Prada Resort 2012 dress paired with a pink leather clutch by Prada, suede pumps by Miu Miu and jewelry by Irene Neuwirth.
And we definitely don’t remember hearing anything about a “make a dress out of two other dresses for a red carpet appearance” challenge, but there it is. The evidence is unmistakeable. Someone mislabeled this as a Prada dress because it’s obvious either a flamboyant gay man, sassy black woman, or bitchy white girl made this in a Parson’s workroom in 6 hours or less.

The other entries must have been pretty awful for this one to be the winner. Maybe that’s why she’s wearing the heavy eye makeup that doesn’t suit her and makes her look a little like ’60s Barbie. She’s trying to disguise herself. Don’t worry, Liz, honey. All you have to do is turn around and it’s like you become another woman. Both versions of you have shitty taste in dresses, though.
It occurs to us that we might be making assumptions here and that this is, in fact, an expensive Prada dress and not two Goodwill castoffs hot-glued together in an 11th-hour frenzy of desperation by a gameshow contestant. That would mean Elizabeth is wearing this dress voluntarily, not because she’s contractually obligated to do so by the Weinstein Company.
That’s … rather hard to accept, wouldn’t you say?
IN! FINALLY! A dress for the indecisive gal!
OUT! A psychological condition in dress form.
