Hip Hop Outfit - I Don't See It

Since I have TiVo, I usually watch my regular shows a few days late. Last night, I finally watched this week's episode of Project Runway. The remaining designers (all of whom showed collections at Bryant Park) were tasked to design outfits for each other based of an assigned musical genre. Kenley (the most annoying designer this season) got hiphop (call it karma). Since all she's been designing this season are 50s dresses with hideous prints, she decided to go out on a limb and make pants.

I was REALLY hoping she was going to get the boot since:

1.) her outfit had nothing hiphop about it (which was the main challenge)
2.) the pants she made were ill-fitting
3.) she doesn't know when to shut up irritating Tim Gunn in the process
4.) her laugh is annoying

If it were me, she should've been sent home just for being rude and disrespectful to Tim. He only offers guidance and a critical eye. If she chooses not to listen, fine, but she doesn't have to disrespect him.

For most of the episode, Kenley's usual whiny self kept on complaining about how she didn't want to create an outfit that will make Kenley look stupid. Apparently, she thinks hiphop outfits are stupid-looking. I guess hiphop is just so far out her comfort zone that she didn't even bother to think about the challenge and she just did as she pleased. Does she think she can just skate by with her 50s-inspired looks?

For this challenge, she could've channeled Janet Jackson:



or the late (but great) Aaliyah:
