This post is very late, but I was in Long Island all weekend and didn't get to catch this episode until last night. In episode 2, the designers were challenged to create maternity garb for pregnant supermodel-cum-television star, Rebecca Romijn. I thought this was a very appropriate challenge for the show and really gave a chance for designers to show their versatility. Let's recap this week's designs:
Althea's design made it into the top three, however I wasn't a big fan. I agree with the judges that the color is beautiful and the cups shaped from ribbons are interesting, however it is impractical. A pregnant woman's breasts would be *popping* out of that top. Project Runway would've done better to find pregnant models specifically for this show. Just strapping on a pregnancy pillow to a size 0 model doesn't mimic all of the actual curves a pregnant woman gains.
Malvin was eliminated for his conceptual look. He wanted to give the idea of a mother hen cradling an egg. He even wanted to make jodhpur "chicken thighs" until Tim talked him out of it. Nina criticized that the model looked like she had already had the baby and was carrying it in a sling. The black-feathered tank underneath was cute, but not enough to keep him on the show. There is a market for conceptual fashion, but apparently this one was just too costumey.
I'm also loving the Blogging Project Runway blog. It has *everything* Project Runway, this season and past seasons. Check it out.

Crochet and Poptabs were born to go together:
