Project Runway spoilers below the fold.

Korto was ROBBED.

Now that I’ve got that off my chest… I dropped cable tv, so I had to watch the debate and the Project Runway finale online. (Debate streamed and Runway downloaded.) It’s not bad once you get used to it.

Anyway.

Leanne’s work was pretty enough, and very well made, but come on. Dull. As. Dishwater. The colors and styles — I know the line is supposed to be cohesive, but it’s not supposed to all be identical. The pastel teal and white, with the monotonous wave design, all screamed “Cruise Ship” to me. Maybe I’ve been exposed to Simon Cowell for too long, but “Cruise Ship” is just not a positive association. (I do like that she does structural, architectural designs. Her planter-grid-inspired skirt early this season was gorgeous, but I need some variety.)

Kenley. Kenley, Kenley, Kenley. So cute, with her Betty Page thing, and yet so utterly unlikeable. Her off-white dress with the hand-painted flowers was one of my favorites from the finale (that picture either doesn’t do it justice, or I recall it prettier than it really was), but I couldn’t give her the win for one dress. And nothing else in her line really wowed me.

I didn’t come into this as a Korto fan at all. Jerrell was my “favorite,” I guess, though I didn’t really love any of them. I loved the Japanese-looking seatbelt coat that Korto did in the car challenge, but other than that, she left me a little cold. But her final line was beautiful. Exotic without being “African,” and I’m so glad she re-did two dresses and made them less fussy and overworked. The floor length busy, busy white thing was the only dress I didn’t like, and her asymmetrical final green dress was amazing. And this. Ugh. I wish I had somewhere to wear that.

Stolen. Korto rocks.

[Also: If you're a fan, Jerrell, Joe, and Suede also presented in New York. (Links go to their lines.) Jerrell's is so painfully tacky and sequin-laden that I question my sanity a little for liking his earlier work so much. And for this year's token straight guy, Joe's line is surprisingly pretty and sexy, without being slutty. I particularly lust after this and this.]
