Project Runway: Innovative Antiquity

  I liked Rami’s dress. It was very nice.

What I don’t understand is why Ricky got the stink-eye from the judges for making a perfectly nice baby doll dress because it’s been done, it’s not new and fresh. They said he was a disappointment and he landed in a bucket with Simone and crazy Elisa.

Right, so what I don’t understand… how was Rami’s dress innovative, exactly? I know that Aristotle would have agreed… the toga may have been innovative in his time.

   Julius Caesar liked it, but he knew it wasn’t innovative.

Marlon Brando, when playing Caesar in 1953 even made sure he had the Mother-of-the-Bride flower on his shoulder. (That’s M.O.B. to drunken hags.) And, although you can’t see it in this photo, he opted out of the Bluefly Ugly Accessory wall for his shoes.

So, 5,000 years of the toga comes full circle to Project Runway as an innovation and the winner of the first challenge and the much newer baby doll is put on notice.
