sans bitchery. There's simply not a bad word to be said about this dress. In our opinion, this is one of - if not THE - most beautiful garments ever produced for the show, whether in the competition or on a Bryant Park runway. Don't take our word for it. The Chrysler Building dress is legendary among long-time Project Runway fans.
We can say that we aren't crazy about the Carrie Bradshaw circa 2001 Big Fabric Flower, though. That's a little bitchy, right?
Everything about this dress is just so dead-on and such a testament to Jay's vision and skill.
The beauty of it is he managed to take his own point of view, which is in a different solar system than the one Banana Republic is in, and finesse it to a point where it completely fit with the client's own line while standing out from it at the same time. The one thing that tripped him up is the fact that this dress simply couldn't be manufactured at a Banana Republic price point due to the intricate detailing. Watching it again, we wonder if he was aware of that and was just trying to find a way to stay in the competition, but who cares? As far as we're concerned, he won this one.
