An object is digitially scanned into a 3-D computer model and re-generated into various resolutions. The Lo Res shoe is part of an automated design revolution.
For me they seem like Cinderella Shoes, from glass or from crystal, beautiful!!! Price $250.

Project Runway Model, Amanda Fields returns with her take on episode three. Thanks Amanda!
Are the opening credits different? I love it; it feels more personal and fun.
My jaw dropped looking at the clothes from the curatorial department of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My goodness. Simple fit with exquisite detail is breathtaking. That billowy pink Balenciaga coat reminded me of Chloe Dao's finale collection! I love high end looks! Drama!! When Tim called out the team leaders.. I was thinking: obviously one of these people will be out! (They always eliminate the leader of a team!) Jesse saying "I don't want Ping to pick me..." I can already tell they are in the bottom three.
A great model would never sell out a designer. As I have said before, sometimes I may not understand or necessarily like an outfit that I'm modeling, but I wear it as if it is the hottest new thing. Oh Megan WHY!? (PS I wrote this BEFORE Models of the Runway came on!) After understanding that she is new to the modeling world, I will cut her a little slack. I am sure she won't make the same mistake again. I know I have always been talkative, but not negative.
After seeing the outfits this week (not made out of burlap) I can see that the eliminated designer, Pamela, from the last episode was not to blame for making the model's butt look big. You can see in the form fitting dress this week. It is a matter of opinion as to her body being runway material, I am simply stating that Pamela should not have been blamed.

In the case of Kelis' outfit we should rename these Alexander McQueen Armadillo shoes, Alexander McQueen "Im-a Dildo" Shoes.Sorry, McQueen she did you no justice.
Lady Gaga wore and bedazzled in a pair of Armadillo's and matching outfit in her Bad Romance film clip and looked farkin hot in them.
A highlight: Ping tells us what she wishes was included in episode three.

Over Xmas I made myself a beautiful black, suede covered sketchbook (which I should show you in another post). Now comes the time to fill it!! I've been drawn to collage recently, not because of the huge trend for collage in fashion editorials now but purely because of the instant nature of it, and the speed with which you can quickly create an amazing visual, which I will use as a base to start sketching or painting.
Matthew Craven is a mixed media artist who reworks vintage photographs, giving them a new graphic quality.
Maurizio Anzeri is another mixed media artist who works into vintage photographs, but he uses embroidery and string-art techniques to add an eerie dimension to the portraits.
Charlotte Cory is an artist and writer who counts the Queen among her customers! She also has a collaboration with All Saints at the moment on a range of t-shirts baring her prints (if only they had men's versions!). She is also currently exhibiting here in London at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery.

This post is only for positive words for Mila Hermanovski. If you have negative commentary or something to say about another designer, you may do so in our Reactions post here.
Every season of Project Runway needs a free spirit, a visionary, an artist; this year that role firmly belonged to you. You embraced every challenge and threw your heart and soul completely into it. You seemed reborn with each new opportunity to express yourself and it was a pleasure to watch you respond to your garments on the catwalk. You came to learn and to meet the other designers but you left as an unforgettable part of Season 7. We were intrigued and you got us talking and isn't that what making art is all about?
This post is only for positive words for Ping Wu. If you have negative commentary or something to say about another designer, you may do so in our Reactions post here.
I'm all for humour in fashion - it's taken waaayyy too seriously these days, but I'd feel a bit stupid walking to Tesco with a rhino horn sticking out of my c***!
