It’s that time again — the mysterious top six of Project Runway have presented at NYFW, and it’s time to guess who’s line is whose.
As is now the way of things, Project Runway showed at New York Fashion Week last Friday morning, just as I was posting my recap for this week. With more than ten contestants left in the competition, it is impossibly for all to show dummy collections. So instead our Top Six finalists presented, technically anonymously to all those not inside the tent for filming.
Personally, I always thought Lifetime allowing it when it was a Top 8, Top 9 or Top 10 cheapened this being the grand prize as it was. It’s one thing to allow two extra competitors to make dummy collections. It’s quite another when more than half the cast gets to have their work walk the runway, and then everyone acts like they didn’t.
We have, as we do every year, picked an outfit from each line for our readers to get a sense of what each line looked like, and to guess who among those that are left will be making the Top Six — and of those, which two are the dummy collections and which are the four who will be acknowledged as showing at NYFW when the time comes to air the episode.
Meanwhile, until then, consider how you feel about Jessica Alba as our finale guest judge, and also Heidi’s purple girftwrap outfit, complete with ginormous 1980s style bow. Also, seriously, Zac Posen, find your light dude.
Check out the contenders below! Full disclosure — having seen all six lines, I am currently only certain of three of my guesses. The only three lines, I am less sure about, and am curious to hear what you think!
Please place your guesses in the comments. Our next Project Runway recap will post this coming Friday morning.
