If Laura Bennett were a superhero...

Friday, October 12, 2007 by

...what would she call herself?

Here's the deal: Laura's going to be starring in her very own comic strip on iVillage. The premise of the strip is that Laura will be a superhero that solves women's fashion dilemmas. Thing is, she hasn't come up with a name for herself yet. That's where you all come in.

Come up with a superhero name for Laura Bennett and if she picks yours as the best, she'll send you an autographed copy of the Project Runway Season 3 DVD! We can't guarantee that the winning entry will actually be used by iVillage, but at least you'll have the comfort of knowing that Laura liked yours best.

Post your answers in the comment section and leave some sort of name (doesn't have to be your full name) so we won't be stuck saying "CONGRATULATIONS, ANONYMOUS AT 10:57 AM!!!" We'll announce the winner on Monday or Tuesday. Get cracking, ladies! Post as many suggestions as you want!

Captain Glamorous???


Captain Fabulous???

You know, because Laura is "fabulously glamorous!"

Seriously though, she should be Wonder Woman, because the woman is fabulously glamorous, amazingly talented, and raising 6 kids! Too bad that one's taken. :/

"GlaMère" from Anges. Great name! While holding down the alt key type 138 on the number keypad (not the ones above the letters) to get è. If you're on laptop, sorry, can't help.

There's many wonderful names here so I'm not even going to try to come up with another! (though I do love Janet's FabulousMommy, Bettie's Aglaia & Sewing Siren's Haute Coutura)

BUT, I do hope she has the Super Hero version of the LBD on with a deeply plunging neckline & her signature buckle-brooch!

No new ideas, but I'd like to "vote" for cleamontis' The Scarlett Needle. Rock on.

And I want to know where the dress is, too. You can't promise The Perfect LBD and then leave us to languish. Women have needs.

My Goddess
Amour Glamour
Feathered Fashionista
Beaded Beauty
Equestrian Diva (Laura in riding boots from episode 303).

oooooooh! How about...

Laurabulous: Defender From Serious Ugly

but that's interchangeable with Lauramourous or what have you.

If you can't tell, I'm absolutely trying to push myself for the win this time. Laura is my absolute favorite designer from all three Project Runways and her autograph would be a gay dream come true if my mother doesn't win the Woodstock dress for herself. =)

I Love You, Laura Bennett! :)

Hey everyone! Brett, here! =D
I just wanted to add a few more suggestions to the ones above. At last night's football game, I thought up of a few more superhero pseudonyms.

Goddess Arula - It's an anagram of Laura and she is the goddess of classical fashions (GCF?), so yay.

Sailor Laura (or perhaps "Sailaura" or "Sailora") - the adorned "Sailor Moon"-esque franchise character that Laura I'm sure would design a sexy sailor outfit for herself, but better than the one she designed for Jeffrey's mom (she only had 2 days, but with all the time possible, she could make pure gorgeous).

I'm gonna try to come up with more by Sunday! :D

best of luck to everybody, this prize is a dream!
