I Can't Believe It's Not Project Runway

In the immortal words of Fabio.....okay, forget that. Fabio wouldn't have a thing to say about this, probably because he has more sense to do ANY kind of fashion recap after the Project Runway fiasco, but I can't help it. I thought I'd throw a few of the standouts up from last week's new Bravo fare, Launch My Line.

Bravo, thank you for doing what Lifetime (Television for WOMEN) failed to do with this season's PR: keep the crazy past the first episode. I can't wait to see what she does next. How DOES one follow up after their iconic, line-defining Studio 54 meets Jem and the Holograms look?

Was anyone else surprised this look from Lou Rawl's daughter won:

after the judges fell all over themselves praising this look from Oprah CEO business woman?

Don't get me wrong. I don't have anything against Lou Rawls' daughter OR her dress, I just din't think it was all that and a bag of potato chips. I would've liked it better had it been executed in a matte jersey knit, but I'm CRAZY like that. Me no like-a da shiny Prom 1987 called and wants its satin fabric back, and it is PISSED that you cut up its antebellum ball gown with hoop skirt and black lace trim.

Jewrey-designer lady's dress. Not earth shattering, but I. LOVE. the color (sigh, it reminds me of my now sold to my 16 year old cousin who WRECKED IT THREE TIMES beloved Beetle Daisy). What I love about this dress is that it really did showcase her jewelry, which of course you cannot see in this photo because of the stupid pose she is in, but it DOES showcase the feather that she is randomly holding PERFECTLY. What up with THAT?!

Of course, I cannot find a photo that I can COPY AND PASTE of my fave-o design of the night from The Dandy and His Queen, so I will show their photos instead.
