This week's Project Runway challenge was to create a look for the 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremonies. There were some odd entires, and some cute entries that really weren't Olympic-like. Korto won with white wide legged pants and a leather vest seen here on the left. I liked it as an outfit, but I thought it was kind of boring and not something that would stand out much to represent the USA, and I can't imagine muscular gals in pants cut like those.
Below - #1- Kelli had a vintage-y looking blouse and skirt that was super cute, but not Olympic-like. I liked Terri's sporty outfit (#2) the best for this competition. #3- Daniel did a dress that he described as '1940s-like' Huh? What? The dress was pretty bad and Daniel just squeaked through this week.
So I tried to find some sporty yet chic vintage that could go along with this week's challenge -
