It's finally here! Project Runway
finale week! There's an extra added incentive for me to watch Wednesday's night's final runway show: I spent the entire hour scanning the background looking for myself to see if I make a little cameo. This season, I'm going for 2-2 and I put out a lot of effort to try to get a little screen name. Keep those fingers crossed. Back to the matter at hand. It's tough to say which of the final three designers are going to walk off with the win. Will it be Kenley Collins
, Korto Momolu, or Leanne Marshall
? On Friday, we examined why Kenley (clearly this season's underdog) can and should win. Tomorrow, we'll look at Leanne, who everyone is calling the frontrunner but today, it's all about Korto Momolu
When you look at the facts, it is Korto and not Leanne, who has performed the best this season. In fact, Leanne has found herself in the lowest group four times this season, more than any other final three contestant. Korto has pulled off two wins - in the Rings of Glory challenge as well as Rock N' Runway. She has also scored in the higher group 6 times this season. Kenley has been in the top group 5 times and Leanne, only 4.
Here is a photo of one of Korto's designs from Fashion Week:
Of the final three designers, I think Korto is the most likable and would fare best as a businesswoman. She has a very mellow, laid back personality but it's also obvious how passionate she is for what she does. All season long, she has done an outstanding job of catering to what her clients want without losing her own style and point of view.
Korto also does something for should make her an unbelievably strong candidate to win: she makes memorable clothes. It's been week and weeks and I'm still talking about that seatbelt coat from the Fashion That Drives You challenge. The minute I saw it, I said out loud: "I'd buy that coat tomorrow!" and I would think that a comment like that is exactly what the judges are looking for in a winner. Korto is stylish, unique, and marketable. What more could you ask for?
