Great minds

Me, while watching Wednesday's Project Runway: "Victorya's dress looks like something Mike Grell would have drawn for a girl Legionnaire during the team's half-naked disco period."

Tim Gunn, blogging about Wednesday's Project Runway: "Frankly, the decision to toss Victorya this win eluded me. In my view, the electric blue textile said “superhero” not prom. Furthermore, the jewel emblazoned panel on the front of the halter made the dress look more appropriate for a hostess at a Vegas cocktail lounge than a teenager attending a suburban prom."

Good point. She could have been Night Lass in 1976. It's been a few years since I've been to a prom, but none of those dresses looked right to me. I'm from the South where they went for the gown thing.

You know, I think I can picture the exact issue you're thinking of -- Lightning Lad & Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy & Night Girl go to an amusement park or something? And then track down Chemical King's killer after they send Night Girl home because she's not a Legionnaire?
