|Ven discusses his design on Project Runway Season 10 Episode 2|
Too bad that his model didn't understand that on a television show when the designer is defending his work that the camera is continuously on ... the model wearing the dress. She's a beautiful girl, styled to confection, but she's got that look on her puss that looks like she's wearing sour balls, not sweet rock crystal.

The judges really liked Sonjia's blue/green number too. I like the shark candies around the neck and top of the dress, but the bottom? It looks like an apron to me. The same effect is the back of the dress. That ruined it for me ... and next to Ven's dress, it looks over-worked. Too much is going on ... if Ven wasn't in the competition, this would have won I suppose. Oh yes, Dmitry's dress (left) is a stunner and it floated down the runway, but he didn't use enough candy. Essentially, he sewed a dress, strung candy to look like beads, and called it a day. It wasn't a CANDY dress.
The designers purchased the candy at Dylan Lauren's (Ralph's daughter) candy store in Manhattan. She was also the guest host. I wonder how she ever got into candy? I guess that she had to come up with something ... she wasn't a particularly dynamic judge. And honestly, this week, I was surprised at how Nina Garcia reacted to the dresses ... she actually liked a few of them! OK Nina, who is always so ... critical.
