Project Runway

I am completely obsessed with catching up on Season 6 of Project Runway on Hulu (here). I'm only on episode 7 right now and have no clue who won this season (so no one ruin anything for me please!) but thus far I am loving Christopher Straub's designs most. His pieces are consistently eye-popping and absolutely stunning!

My favorite dress so far is his take on a period piece for their film challenge:

Totally obsessed with the back of this dress, but the only photo I can find is TINY:

And then there was the newspaper challenge! He had the most inventive origami gown:

Others...

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Can't wait to see the rest of Christopher's designs. Also, he's the only one in Season 6 without fashion schooling...what a natural talent.
