Project Runway rehash!

Have you looked at the cast list for Project Runway All-Stars 3? Insane. THREE winners (Seth Aaron, Jeffrey, Irina) and everyone else placed 2nd-4th. Oh, and then there's Elena from last season. Odd lady out (she finished 6th). My love for Seth Aaron trumps my hatred for Irina, otherwise I might consider passing on this season just to avoid her. Who am I kidding. I'll watch this show 4-EVR.

Also, I failed to say yesterday that it was my wedding anniversary. I wish I could have used that as an excuse to make a lovely new dress and have a fancy dinner, but we have another wedding this weekend. You'll have to be content with AB's flower girl dress, which I'll be posting next week. It's terribly cute, if I do say so myself!

(And yes, we did watch PR live on our anniversary...did I mention my husband loves me?) Spoilers to follow...

Things I loved:


I LOVED the home visit with Alexandria. Seeing her camp and those kids...let's all say it together: AAAWWWW. And I laughed SO HARD at all the "ugly dolls". So spot on. 

Justin's story behind his collection was unique and made a lot of sense with his designs. I liked it.

Things I hated:


Tim falling down subway stairs! He should have made up a fantastical story about getting into a bar fight or something.

At first I hated the requirement for an unconventional material, but they all did so well with it that I can forgive the show.

Ahhhhhhhh neck braids!! Helen! WTF!

Tonight's reason why I love Tim Gunn:


He did a great job with everyone's critiques. I LOVE home visits because we get to see how polite and generally awesome Tim can be.

Favorite garment:


Heidi's reaction to Justin's dress ("ohhhhhh wow") was exactly how I felt. Insane. He was smart to go with a showstopper in his mini-collection. It seems like someone always underwhelms the judges in their mini-collection and goes home for it. Glad to see that it didn't happen this time around.

I almost lost my mind every time I saw Alexandria's pants-with-gloves. WANT. NOW. Zac and Nina are probably right with their criticisms, but that doesn't mean I don't love her collection.

Least favorite garment:


Helen's print was interesting, but combined with the red it was jarring. And that off the shoulder cape-dress-straight-jacket...ugh.

Best line of the night:


"I mean, uhm, I guess...capes are mysterious..." --Helen


I'm half-way satisfied with the final four (although I prefer 3 contestants going into Fashion Week). Their collections seem interesting and I'm anxious to see them next week. Justin might have some issues with fit, Bradon might skew too old, Alexandria's show might be too boring (for the judges) and I hope Dom actually finishes (2 weeks to go and she didn't have her fabric!). Just the right amount of drama for a finale.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to watch The Little Mermaid on blu-ray, which was part of my anniversary present. YES!
