Ripping the Collections: Kara, Part Two
This is just gorgeous. Once again, Kara pairs two colors to great effect.
On the other hand…
No. Sorry, no. These two queens have their limits.
Ignoring that, we just don’t like the outfit overall. The colors (surprisingly), the distracting suspenders, that thing she’s got around her neck – none of it’s working for us.
On the other other hand…
Wow. This is really breathtaking.
Just a beautiful combination of colors, plus the heavy trim in the bodice and the double straps, the full skirt and high waist — It’s all pure Kara Janx and the effect is stunning.
One interesting thing about this collection is that it was all about working a small set of of themes over and over again. The beauty was found as much in the combination of designs as in the designs themselves. She took the bodice from the previous look and combined it with the skirt from her second look.
We’re in love/hate mode. If you check the video, it moves beautifully and certainly the colors are beautiful. And we liked the similar full skirt in the first look…
Loved this look. Young and chic and flattering.
Kara’s practically built her empire on her kimono wrap dress, so the look might seem a bit ubiquitous (especially since Madonna ripped it off for H&M) but that doesn’t negate how striking this is. Eye-popping colors, perfect fit and proportions, and striking model all create the perfect look. Gorgeous.
It appeals to our inner drama queens to declare Kara’s lack of a win (or even a national showcase) as a tragedy, but if it’s a tragedy, it’s one with an awfully happy ending. She’s working like a champ, churning out beautiful, chic designs that are gaining increasing attention. Like Emmett, she’s a perfect example of someone who might not have been the right fit for reality television, but in the end, their talent won out anyway.
Well kittens, we have exhaustively written about all 3 seasons of Project Runway and this post brings that to a close. At this point, we’re ready to declare ourselves the world’s foremost Project Runway experts. We’ve got our Ph.D’s in Runwayology.
