After a few weeks off to cruise through South America I have returned, slightly tanner and happy to get back to slamming every horrible outfit Alyssa wears (even though I may have worn a Hawaiian shirt every day of my vacation, because that’s just how I roll).
Before we dive in I have to thank PopePhilly for covering for me during a crazy busy time of year and delivering on the snark and awesome. It was nice to come home and see you were all well taken care of. Now, on to the recap!
Previously on project runway.. Alyssa wore this
Nina showed up and made the designers create outfits for bloggers. For some reason almost everyone looked horrible and Viktor went home. Aw, I’ll miss you and your giant theatrical fan my love.
We start the show with Alyssa on the runway wearing a renaissance fair undergarment with a leather corset and a leather bow tie. Of course she is.
The 4 remaining contestants look less than thrilled to be there, Korto especially looks all around dead on the inside, do the editors hate her or does she just suffer from bitchy resting face?
Christopher rambles about how magic it is to be in the top 4. He won 1 competition, Elena won 1, Korto won 2 and Seth Aaron has won none. Burn. Sidenote Alyssa is wearing a kickass pair of lime green shoes that tragically do nothing to make this outfit better. Sorry, I keep getting sucked in, it’s like a magic eye picture, the more I look at it the more confused I find myself…
This week’s challenge is ready to wear. Elena explains it as “something that is…wearable… to anyone” thanks for clearing that up. This week’s guest is Michelle Smith, of the label Milly (she didn’t bother to show up, we hear about all this from Alyssa, not cool Michelle, even Nina made time to show up to hand out a challenge, and those crazy kids from Bonnie and Clyde managed to take 2 minutes to film a cameo, just sayin’). The designers get to use Michelle Smiths fabrics to make a dress that will cost under $400 to produce. The winning garment will be sold with profits going to the charity “save the garment center” . If I cared I would google that, but I don’t so let’s move along.
The designers go on a field trip to look at fabrics – Michelle Smith is at her studio and greets all the designers, ok fine bonus points for that. Shouldn’t Zana be there? Tim Gunn totally would have been there. GET IT TOGETHER ZANA!
