PR: Judging The Judges

Posted on October 14, 2011

Hit it, ladies:

You can tell both Heidi and Nina stepped up their games this week, knowing they’d be sitting next to someone who’s well known for being stylish and fabulous. We’ll give her a lot of credit for wearing something that’s at least interesting and not just another uterus skirt. But to be honest, we think this is kind of ugly and her hair’s a mess. Score: 5/10.

We’re of two minds here. Yes, this is really fabulous and suits her to a T. But we’re getting a little tired of so many guest judges showing up in a borrowed outfit from the Duchess’ fall line. It’s a bit too easy, no? And isn’t there already too damn much cross-promotion going on in this season of Product Runway?

But dammit, she looks amazing. Score: 9/10.

It’s fabulous; it’s a bejeweled tank top; it’s simple black pants. Darlings, we can’t believe it, but we may have hit the wall on Nina’s choices this season. This is just a bit too expected and too similar to too many past looks. Heidi’s got the gyno skirts and Nina’s got the bedazzled tank tops. We like it a lot, but we’re going to have to take points off because we think she may be in a bit of a style rut. Score: 7/10.


But come on, she really does look incredible in that shade of red.
