Judging the Judges: Nina vs. Heidi vs. Kerry vs. Joanna

Posted on August 19, 2011

All Project Runway judging bitches please line up to be judged, thank you!

Heidi Klum is wearing a Whetherly shirt, an Opening Ceremony skirt, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Wildlife by Heidi Klum jewelry.

Opening Ceremony Marjan Pejoski Skirt

After last week’s disastrous showing, she came roaring back with this cute and sassy little number. Absolutely love that skirt, which couldn’t possibly be more Heidi. We wouldn’t normally rave about a necklace like that, but paired with that simple sheer top, it totally works. As we’ve said, it’s all about framing the face when you’re on TV. Score: 9/10.

Kerry Washington is wearing a Zuhair Murad dress and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Collection

We usually like Zuhair Murad’s designs but this is not something any female over the age of 8 should be wearing in public. The skirt’s pretty but it’s too short and combined with the pale pink and the pussy bow, it’s all way too twee. Very disappointed, because Kerry usually dresses better than this. Score: 4/10.

Joanna Coles is wearing a Calvin Klein dress and Alexandre Birman shoes.


She looks like she rushed over from the office with a pair of shoes from the accessories closet. It’s not a horrible look or anything, but it’s as bland as it gets compared to the women on either side of her. And to be perfectly honest, it’s not the most flattering look for sitting. Score: 3/10.

Nina is wearing an Aquilano. Rimondi blouse and Alexander Wang shoes.

Lucky for Kimberley Nina chose to wear a top like this on the day she presented her gold metallic look to her. It’s to Nina’s credit that she took this top – which we don’t like even a little on the model – and paired it with simple black pants to both tone down its effects as well as play them up in the best way. Another perfect “sitting down” look because all the interest is up near the face. This could easily have looked very tacky but she made it look chic. Score: 8/10.


Oh, Nina. You’re not going to let that stand, are you? We expect great things from you next week.
