The Daily Beast asked past Project Runway contestants to sketch an Inaugural Ball gown for Michelle Obama. Except they asked them to create the look using only Laura Bush's 2005 Inaugural Ball dress, burlap potato sacks, an American flag, and $10 worth of trims of their choosing. Five out of the nine asked would have Michelle wear the damn flag. Leanne's was the only viable option, in our book. Hers would be made from the burlap sacks and lined with the flag to make the sacks more comfortable. The Ball is no Democratic National Convention, after all. [The Daily Beast]
