Leanne Wins Project Runway, And There Was Much Rejoicing

Unless you're one of the commenters on Blogging Project Runway, then you think Korto got robbed because Bravo hates black people. The idea that Korto Momolu lost because of her race is actually so insane that I don't even think the people who say it believe it. Korto's line was fantastic...Leanne's was better. Deal. With. It. Also, how significant is a black person winning a reality show to the overall social scheme? Especially when the nation is on the verge of electing it's first non-white President.

Leanne Marshall took a single inspiration (waves), a limited color palette, and then proceeded to turn out ten immaculately-designed, effortlessly flowing looks. The gentle wave look was shown off in not only dresses, but gowns, shorts, skirts, and jackets. Leanne displayed damn near every possible way she could spin the source, resulting in a beautiful, enchanting collection that bested the admittedly fantastic efforts of her competitors.

Drinks are on this brother:
