'Project Runway': Upset fans accuse judges of being 'biased' after Bones' elimination
Even though both Coco and Christian Siriano advised Bones to focus on just fine-tuning the dress instead of adding more elements to it, he paid no heed to it
It is every designer's dream to dress a supermodel and do an editorial shoot with them. Luckily, the top five designers on 'Project Runway' were presented with this golden opportunity when Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha was presented as their model for an editorial photoshoot. All the designers were excited at the prospect of dressing up Coco and began sketching their best design ideas for her.
Bones Jones, one of the most outspoken designers of the season was pretty excited about the challenge as he worked as a photographer's assistant. Bones wanted to not only showcase his designing skills but also his photography skills. Unfortunately for him, his too hands-on approach during the photoshoot clubbed with the judges being unimpressed by his design led to his elimination from 'Project Runway'. Even though Bones gracefully accepted the judges' decision, fans aren't too pleased about his elimination and accused the judges of being 'biased' against him.
The designers were tasked with the challenge of orchestrating an editorial photoshoot with Coco. From ideating a concept to designing a dress and picking out the props for the shoot, the designers had a lot on their plate. So the judges decided that there wouldn't be a runway walk but just the photoshoot and the designers would be judges based on a photo from the shoot. Bones picked the concept of a tornado and designed a body-hugging blue dress to mimic the eye of a tornado. He even added a durag and some props to the outfit to make it look very edgy.
Even though both Coco and Christian Siriano advised Bones to focus on just fine-tuning the dress instead of adding more elements to it, he paid no heed to it and added a long durag. Ultimately, the dress turned out to be very heavy and constrictive for Coco, but she still went ahead and finished the photoshoot. When the judges saw the final photograph from the shoot, they were far from impressed by it and decided to send him home.
Fans weren't pleased with the judges' decision and took to Twitter to express the same. A fan tweeted, "Well, Nina was incredibly gleeful about sending Bones home. And about denigrating Chasidy. I wonder why? #TeamBones #ProjectRunway." Another fan wrote, "Nina literally said she was offended by Kristina’s photo but yet bones was the one eliminated? #ProjectRunway." "The @ProjectRunway judges have been biased against Bones from the beginning. They judged him more harshly than others at times. I wanted to see @xo2bones fashion in the #ProjectRunway final!" declared a fan.
Another fan shared, "Hate to say this with Bones gone, I don't really care. The ppl left are all lovely designers but I have to connect with them, something has to draw me in. The ladies left don't do that for me, I'm sorry #ProjectRunway." "Bones you did your thing man! Very sad to see you go! Forever Stan! #ProjectRunway," added a fan. "All seriousness though bones just needs a little more time and he’ll be good! And take direction better #ProjectRunway," pointed out a fan.
