I’m no longer confused. I could have sworn that on Project Runway they said that the winning design would be worn by the women on the US Olympic team. Um, no. I misunderstood.
A couple of comments to make here. First, while the design that won was decent, I think it was not fitting for the Olympics. It wasn’t exactly friendly for all figures. Not everyone looks like a slender track athlete. I think the design by Terri was more appropriate. And Tim Gunn agrees with me!
Second, why didn’t the women wear the outfit that was designed? I’ve been sitting here for hours waiting for Team USA and looky, looky, the women are wearing the same thing as the men! Navy blazers, white shirts, red neck ties, and white pants. According to Matt Lauer and Bob Costas, their outfits were designed by Ralph Lauren.
Hmm. What happened? Jeez. That is either a slap in the face or a poor editing choice. Save some face, Project Runway. If you knew about this, you should have edited that information out of the show.
