Irina “Super Bitch” Shabayeva Wins Project Runway – So What?
November 20, 2009 § 2 Comments
Season 6 of Project Runway was just sew wrong. Lifetime? Borrrrrrring talent-less cast and no drama? No Nina? L.A.?! I bet Nina was like, “Oh hell no. I’m not going to L.A. Why would I go to L.A.?”
Just when you thought Season 6 couldn’t get any worse, it did: Irina Shabayeva won. Surprise! But does, like, anybody actually care? Anyone? She’ll probably fade into the background like all the other previous winning designers – except for the super ultra fierce Christian Siriano who’s great because he’s, like, an actual human being.
I did think Irina’s collection was kinda hot, though. Leave it to me to love an all-black collection. Irina’s stuff was like the tough New York chic that made Donna Karan famous and the equally urban, grungy, disheveled Alexander Wang aesthetic that makes his stuff sell out all over the world in seconds. And her pieces did look expensive, except for the last dress which I thought looked super thrown together.
But I don’t like Irina. And isn’t that what reality TV is all about?
I’ll tell you what – Season 7 better be good. At least it’s back in New York. In the meanwhile, check out Project Runway Australia. It’s so fabulous. And they talk weird, too!
