During the season finale of Project Runway Heidi Klum and guest judge Jessica Simpson fervently defended eccentric designer Mondo Guerra and claimed that his outfits were much more wearable than judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia were claiming.
The one outfit most hotly debated was the full-length form-fitting black and white polka dot dress Mondo used as his final piece in the runway show. The debate grew so heated that Kors and Garcia challenged Heidi to actually wear the dress to which Heidi responded that she would be happy to and that she would look stunning. Chalk one up for Heidi Klum because she did wear the dress to the AFI Fest 2010 Closing Night Gala Screening of Black Swan and she did look stunning! (There was no sign of Jessica Simpson who had agreed with Heidi on the episode that they should both wear the dress to the same event.)
I can certainly understand where Michael Kors and Nina Garcia were coming from because the dress is a bit busy to say the least – those polka dots go on for miles and miles – but in the end I side with Heidi in that I think the dress is more fun than circusy! What do you think – is the look too much?
Here’s the original design on the runway during the finale of Project Runway:
