BPR Love for Christopher Straub

You came to the competition as an underdog with no formal training but you brought your talent and a whole lot of heart to Project Runway. You barreled out of the gate in Episode 1 "Welcome to Los Angeles", besting the entire cast with your petaled red-carpet-ready confection. Clearly you love creating feminine, flattering and often flirty looks and gowns in particular are your milieu. This week you took your inspiration from the stones and algae in the fountain at the Getty Museum. Cynthia Rowley and Cindy Crawford both found the bodice flattering and Heidi Klum mentioned your beautiful work over the weeks. While you didn't get the opportunity to create a collection at Bryant Park, you pointed out that you did get to make 12 looks that the fans saw on the runway and you participated in every challenge. You should hold your head high because you indeed rose to the top of a very creative cast. Your potential is huge and we intend to follow you and your future success.

This post is only for positive words for Christopher Straub. If you have negative commentary or something to say about another designer, you may do so in our Reactions post here.
