‘Project Run(A)way’ (From Animal Suffering)

If, like me, you watch the show obsessively caught last night’s episode, you probably did cartwheels in the living room when one “Divorcee Dress Challenge” client, Stephanie, insisted that Nicolas use no wool, silk, leather, or fur in his transformation of her old wedding dress into an outfit she could enjoy as a single woman. I believe her exact words were that she wanted him to be certain “no animals have to suffer.”

Now if only Stephanie’s snarky designer had spent less time rolling his eyes and more time fashioning a knock-out design instead of ho hum separates, he might have won the challenge. Either way, Stephanie gets top marks for speaking up for animals.
