BPR Contest: Grand Prize Winner!
Remember how exciting it was when we first got to see the PR Final 4 collections from OFW? Nobody surprised us more than Kara Janx. After barely skating by week after week, she managed to leapfrog Nick and Andrae for a chance to show in the tents at Bryant Park. She went in as the decoy and came out as the clear cut winner.
BPR reader Marcia remembers this day well:
From the moment I saw the first look in Kara Janx's "decoy" collection, it became the image that leapt to mind every time I thought of Project Runway Season 2. Something about the silhouette, the fabrics, the vibrant colors simply captured my imagination - that is the essence of fashion! This is my favorite moment from Season 2 - when I first saw this design and said "Wow!".
The judges all said "Wow!" when they saw your creation, Marcia. Let's hear more from them:
Laura K: This just makes me feel happy. It's absolutely amazing and it was the hands-down favorite of all three judges. The lighting, the mood, and all of the details contribute to the success of this entry. Marcia chose a great scene to capture and she executed it beautifully.
Tbone: The more I look at this the more I appreciate all of the little details. The colors are perfect. The little Project Runway logo in the background. The doll she chose looks strikingly similar to Kara's real model. The shoes even match! Simply brilliant.
Scarlett: She even has an audience in there! I look at this and all I can think of is how thrilled Kara would be to see this homage! There's no way Michael Kors could snark this doll. This entry took my breath away.
Hmmm, show it to Kara? Okay!
Kara Janx: OMG that is AMAZING! Not only am I completey flattered, but that is just Genius!!!!!!!!!
Hey, let's show Tim, too!
Tim Gunn: I loved them all, but this was my very favorite. It would certainly have received my vote!
Congratulations Marcia, you are the winner of the Project Runway MyScene Barbie, autographed by Nick Verreos!
