Judging the Judges: Heidi vs. Nina

Posted on August 05, 2011

Let’s all turn toward the Project Runway judges with our lips pursed and one eyebrow arched, minions. It’s their turn to be assessed.

We’re only two episodes in, but Heidi and Nina are really bringing it, fashion wise. Heidi in particular seems to be much more dressed up than normal.

Of course she had the hem raised significantly. Mädchen wasn’t sitting all day in a below-the-knee skirt with cameras on her, no sir. It’s a crisp, sexy dress in a fantastic color and suits her to a T. We really love the detail at the shoulders.  The severity of the dress must have triggered her Ilsa, She-Wolf tendencies, because she went all kinds of harsh in the hair and makeup. We don’t actually mind the severe hair because she’s got the face for it, but the Joan Crawford lips and eyebrows are killing us.

J’ADORE. It’s sexy and summer-in-the-city sophisticated; perfectly suited to go with the Garcia mane of hair. Love the cocktail ring too. Nina’s always good at finding the perfect jewelry piece to punctuate an outfit.

If we must pit them against each other cagematch-style (and darlings, you know we must), then we’re gonna have to say Heidi wins this round. Nina’s look is more sophisticated, but that rather stiff bodice isn’t made for sitting.
