Some Diana Love
Okay, I've had time now to reflect and... How cute was Diana last night? Adorable? Absolutely. There is no denying that her designs are completely original. I hope that everyone has had a chance to visit her blog where she responds to questions about the show in her comments.
For instance when a fan asked if she felt that she was being fairly portrayed on the show she answered "... I try to remember that I am just a character on television… and am being portrayed as such. I also try to keep in mind that Project Runway is edited with the show's best interest in mind, creating a successful show. So, in a way, I trust that the editors are doing everything they can to make our show successful. In the end, it is just television and a really fun, unique experience." How refreshing. Diana has a clear understanding of what the show is about. Entertainment.
Diana has a LOT of fans. I've received several tidbits about her past, present and future activities. Christine Mae Liu is one of the producers of a show called "Seamless" at MIT. This is where, at the 2005 show, Diana showed her famous inflatable dress. The design was in collaboration with a fellow RISD student named Emily Albinski. Here is a link to the 2006 website. Diana may be preparing to show something again this year. We'll see...
Here is an article about last year's show AND about Project Runway.
One thing to notice about Diana is that she is always wearing something interesting. It might be one of her super-cool sweaters.
You can purchase the sweater here.
Or a really cool necklace made from vintage electronic parts. These are designed by Emily Albinski, modeled here by Karla Clute.
If we were suspecting that Diana had a wild side after the lingerie episode, we are pretty certain of it after last night. What a doll. To quote Tim Gunn, "You should just have champagne more often, Diana!"
