On last night episode of Project Runway designers were asked to create a costume for a Jesus-themed musical Godspell. The costume will be worn by a character who steels from others and flaunts her riches, in other words a one percenter. How very topical! And of course, this is a dream challenge, given how the fashion world is there to serve the 1%. The characters in the musical pick their clothes at a thrift store, so the costume has to reflect it.
Mondo’s design was the run away best. Austin had an interesting idea with Marie Antoinette, but missed some of the instructions, like the thrift store look.
The rest of the designs looked uninspired. I would like to introduce the designers to a certain ill-matched rich bitch muse. Take these leggings:
And because too much can be too much even for a showy Broadway costume, top it off with a simple commissar leather jacket.
But better expensive shoes
Viola: There is your inspiration!
