Project Runway: Waste Not, Want Not
The guest judge was stylist Rachel Zoe. Follow along by checking out the designs on "Rate the Runway".
Jeffrey: Jeffrey did a pretty good job with his newspaper dress. Wild and well-done. I'd appreciate him a lot more if he wasn't so full of himself. After coming in second, he said that Michael made "clothes that are the equivalent of diabetic food". Good sport.
Alison: [OUT] I thought her model situation was tremendously unfair. Why in the hell did Runway hire a model whose body is so different from the rest? I don't think that the designers should have to stray from their original vision just to accommodate the model's unusual figure. Changing the length of a skirt is one thing, but altering the design completely is a ridiculous request. Really, really unfair. I'm sure Alison would have stayed if her model had an actual waist. Okay, and if she got rid of that silly Minne Mouse hairdo. Poor Alison. She was a real sweetheart.
Angela: I guess Angela saved the drama for next week's episode (the previews show a teary-eyed breakdown). Nothing remarkable about this outfit.
Laura: First of all, I think it's hilarious that Laura wears a crisp, white dress shirt to bed. I guess she was totally serious when she said that she didn't want to give in to dressing sloppily. Anyway, the judges loved her dress. Clean, simple and well-tailored. I'm always impressed by how sharp Laura's designs look. They're not really my style, but I can appreciate the lines. I want to see her do some real, hardcore deconstructing.
Kayne: Damn, Kayne had a hell of a time trying to figure out what he was doing. Both of his attempts at the skirt were way too costume-y. It was kind of a startling drop from his Marilyn Monroe piece from the previous episode.
Michael: [WINNER] Michael won once again! The bustier he created was amazing. I would have liked to see a larger plastic wrap thingy, but I guess it could have been a little overwhelming.
Robert: If it wasn't for the disco-ball shininess, his dress was wearable. Good work, but not enough to stand out. Safe.
Uli: Maybe it's just me, but Uli's accent sounds more and more adorable with each episode. She's the happiest little thing all the time... She never gets involved in the drama. Uli just does her work and looks cute and German. She made a silver and white dress that actually looked somewhat wearable.
Vincent: [ALMOST OUT] Okay, Project Runway people. I've figured you out. Vincent's not really a contestant, is he? He's actually a mole, planted by the producers to spy on the other designers and report on their behavior. A-ha! It was actually Vincent, not Kayne, who found Keith's pattern books!
I've got to be right, because there's no other way in hell Vincent has made it so far. I honestly can't think of anything positive to say about this man. I was livid when Heidi told Vincent he was in. C'mon. This week's dress was ridiculous. At least Alison's looked like it took some construction skills! Seriously, I can easily recreate Vincent's outfit with a large poster board and that crap that gets left behind in hole-punchers. His model could barely walk in that thing! Laura couldn't even contain herself when she bitched him out in the back room. Oh, and his repeated mutterings of "it gets me off" and "it turns me on" completely creeped me out. Who invited the old guy to the party?
