Project Runway recap

Filming this show must be so crazy, straight off the runway and elimination to the next challenge! What are the chances that they actually slept on top of the Empire State Building? That can't be real, right?

Spoilers ahead...

Best moments: It was pretty cool to see the inside of the Empire State Building with the lights turned low. It would be fun to be the only ones there and feel like you have the place to yourself.

Worst moments: Shawn and Claire are wearing me out. In the first episode there was a teaser about someone being accused of cheating...I'm beginning to think it might revolve around the twins doing each other's work? There are some serious lines being crossed here. It's one thing if it's a team challenge, but they're contributing significantly to each other's garments.

See all the final looks here.

Best looks: I liked Batani's simple dress, but other than that, Michael pretty much ran away with it. If you liked it too, it can be your's for only $200!

Worst looks: Most of the rest were bad. They ranged from super boring to poorly made to poorly designed (sleeping in a romper? really??). Deyonte's was certainly the worst, he should have known that being on the bottom two times in a row leads to elimination.

Best quote: "In other words, we're worried that if we put a lump of coal up your behind, that it'd come out as a diamond." --Tim

This was a tricky challenge. At first it didn't seem too hard, but sleepwear probably was new to all of the designers, plus they didn't get to choose their own fabrics. Plus plus they had to embellish or print them. If I were Heidi I would have been disappointed by what was shown. By the way, why wasn't there a dossier of Heidi's collection for them to review? Maybe there was and we just didn't see it.

Next week: Good vs. evil vs. will they all be costumes?


  1. I was okay with Michael's but felt like others were on the cusp of being really good and that with a normal amount of time to design and stitch, would've been better. Wait...I just went and looked again. I only liked Ayana's without the robe as a 'sellable' item.

    I can't discern "worst" between Deyonte and Aaron. Aaron's looked HORRIBLE and Deyonte's was boring. VERY boring, but not nearly as raggedy, IMO as Aaron's. Plus, Aaron's bloomers. LOL!

    There were so many snooze worthy designs. I am hoping this week is more interesting.

    1. How could I forget the bloomers! I thought Zac handled that nicely. They were very distracting and made me question his taste.


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
