Bird Seed and Hamster Bedding Are the Stuff of Fashion on 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)

'Project Runway'Unconventional was the word of the week on 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime). While it wasn't perhaps as startling as dumpster-diving for materials, it's certainly stepping way outside of the box to shop on a budget at a pet supplies store.


As expected, we got varying degrees of styles, though our personal favorite was Anthony Ryan's bird seed mini-dress. The design work with the seeds not only made it look absolutely delicious to our avian friends, but elegant as well.

Nina Garcia, on the other hand, was all about Olivier Green's creation, which utilized the cushion part of a dog bed for a bodice and then pine wood hamster and rabbit bedding for the skirt. Those crazy eyebrows were just to keep you a little unsettled as you looked at the model.

Green took home the win on this challenge, while the loser seemed appropriate as he was the guy who said he wasn't trying to win, but just trying to get by. What he did get was a ticket home for using an umbrella for the top, but at least it looked like he passed his design powers on to the other Josh still in the competition before departing. (What was that arm-holding move?)

Heidi really needs to stand up to them. I really liked the bird seed dress better than the dog bed dress. Just like last year when Mondo should have won over Gretchen.....
