Project Runway Candy Couture Challenge

I swore off watching Project Runway after the judging travesty that was Season 9. It used to be a show about true talent but has since devolved into all about the best reality TV storyline.

I made an exception, however, when they recently did an “unconventional materials” challenge to make clothes out of candy! At Dylan’s Candy Bar! Which I also hate because they charge ridiculous prices for basic bulk candy and are only successful because Dylan’s the daughter of Ralph Lauren!

Okay, that’s it for my soapbox. Check out the challenge winner above, a dress made of black licorice and crushed rock candy – how gorgeous is that?! (Photo from Lifetime’s website)

You can see the rest of the candy clothing, complete with hilarious commentary from Tom and Lorenzo here, here, and here.
