A charity gala. A Venetian ball. Heck, even lunch at a high-end restaurant. When the time comes to dress to the nines, elegance is the word of the day. This week the designers were challenged with creating a look that embodies the idea of elegance and elevates any occasion. Their gorgeous creations definitely left us in a feelin' fancy mood — here's how we're taking advantage of it.
Upgrading Our Earrings
Accessories can truly make or break an outfit, and we loved how one of the top designers piled on statement earrings and a see-through bag to push his look to the next level. That's why you'll find us adding these kintsugi beauties to our jewelry rotation ASAP.
Making Sparkling Candy
Nothing's fancier than having a glass of bubbly in hand. To indulge that sparkly feeling all day sans alcohol, we're whipping up a batch of bellini hard candy. (You heard that right: bellini.) Best part: It'll pop and fizzle with each bite.
Going Mad for Plaid
The winning look proved that plaid has come a long way from flannel jammies. Our favorite way to wear it: as a chic tote bag.
Let's Sharpen Your Skills!
On every episode of Bravo’s Project Runway, you can bet a designer will struggle with something creatively. If only they had Bluprint on the brain! Each week, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite mishaps (been there!) — and share easy ways to fix them.
Adjust a Bust
This week we heard lots of talk about properly fitting a curvier model. To highlight her shape in the best possible way, a designer has to know how to adapt a concept to work with any physique. These lessons make sure you're in the know too, so you can alter virtually any sewing pattern.
Finish a Hem
Christian said it best: "It's elegant — finishing is everything!" The judges and mentors made it clear that they didn't want to see any more haphazard hems on the runway. If the designers had these couture tricks up their sleeves, they'd be done with the hangups.
