Project Project Runway: Night At The Opera Results

It's Project Project Runway Challenge Number 2 results day!

Our challenge this week was:

Challenge – A Night at the Opera
This week is all about high-end glamour. It’s time to show us a show-stopping ball gown for a high-society event. The look needs to be classic, elegant, but still turn heads. It should look couture. The designers on the show had $350 to spend this week, so let’s stay under $35 (as if any of us will spend $35). (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)

Here we go!

Ariel was chosen to model this particular Opera ensemble (mostly because she's the least skanky of my models hehehe).

I got the fabric from the Thrift Store.  It was actually sandwiched in between some really nice blue knits in a bag that I bought for $3.00.  I had no idea what I would possibly use it for - until this challenge!

I made it as form fitting as possible, with one long sleeve.  The judges really went for the sexy, yet modest look, so I think this fits in well.

Ariel has some crazy sparkly gold eye shadow and hot pink lips, but I still think this dress makes her look elegant.  And I congratulate myself for making the design more streamlined.  I had ideas for bustles and high collars... ooof... I'm glad I went with the simple yet elegant look.

I made a little fan for Ariel's hair accessory.  Perfect for the Opera!  Well maybe.  I've never actually been to the Opera.

I chose this clutch from the accessory wall to go with her ensemble.  I think it matches the fan in her hair quite nicely.

What do you think?  Am I safe this week?  I'm still not quite sure about the vibe of the judges, so I won't try to guess.

As always, if you want to see the other participants designs, visit the Flickr group.

I think you are totally safe, it fits the challenge perfectly and I like the streamlined look over all the bows and bells, so to speak.
