Sneak Peek: The Project Runway Fashion Show

Illustration for article titled Sneak Peek: The emProject Runway/em Fashion Show

Spoiler alert! The finalists of Project Runway Season 7 showed their designs at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week today. Pictures from the collections after the jump!

The images here are not in a particular order. Reportedly, ten designers got to show in the tents, but the three finalists were not revealed. What you see here is just a smattering of what was seen on the runway. I purposely didn't identify the designer for each item, because I thought it would be fun to guess, but if you want to some hints, you'll find info here. Keep in mind that just because two pictures are next to each other doesn't mean they're from the same collection (although you can probably tell collections apart.)

If you are a wealthy English eccentric and have the manor, title and lean frame to go with this, then, okay, if you must. The rest of us will be snickering in the corner.

That's it! What do you think? I saw a lot of really strong looks — with vision and point of view — and also really wearable stuff. Then again, some of it was horrifying. Faith Hill was there, so she must be involved somehow. We'll see!

Don't forget, if you really hate not knowing who did what, you'll find answers here. And a harsh review here.

I suck at figuring out who designed what based solely on the clothes. But I had a good idea who might've done the last few pics, and sure enough, I was right! (According to the Gawker gallery.) Good thing, as it was my favorite collection of the lot, from my favorite designer on the show.
