'Project Runway' - 'Finale, Part II' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted Apr 23rd 2010 12:30AM
(S07E14) It's the final episode of 'Project Runway' Season 7 and I'm more excited this season than last season. The collections of Irina, Carol Hannah, and Althea pale in comparison to this season, which actually had some original colors, shapes, and concepts. This season was apparently more important because they sacrificed an episode of 'Models of the Runway' for a reunion episode that didn't say much.

'Project Runway' - 'Sew Much Pressure' Recap

Jonathan tries his best to sew on Project Runway
(S07E11) In a 'Project Runway' first, not only do we have one quitter, we have two. In the first fifteen minutes, Maya realized that she's still too young to be ready to show for the finale. I found it weird because the show likes putting a mix of designers together, including people right out of school like Daniel Vosovic or Jillian Lewis. While Maya may have been using other designs as influence during the show, she would have had several months to find inspiration before the finale show. With that being said, I respect her decision and wish her the best.

The second quitter comes from one of the models. Valeria gets a high end gig. As a model, that is probably the best decision. She had moderate exposure on a television show, and managed to get a gig from a high end clientele. Take the money and run.

Review: 'Project Runway' - 'Design Your Heart Out'

This weeks clients on Project Runway have been affected by heart disease.
(S07E04) The models take a backseat on 'Project Runway' tonight with the first client-based challenge. With $100 and one day, the contestants had to create a gala dress for Campbell's Address Your Heart Program. Their clients were all impacted by heart disease in different forms. The winner gets a bonus of their dress getting a limited run, and it will be shown during New York Fashion week with the designer.

It was nice seeing an apples to apples comparison where one color was forced upon all the contestants. The Macy's blue challenge last season wasn't as much of a comparison because they got to use several shades of blue and were paired up.

Review: Project Runway - The Fashion Farm

Tim Gunn is grossed out by farm life
(S07E02) This week's challenge on Project Runway fell under the unconventional materials category. The contestants had burlap potato sacks and a day and a few embellishments to transform it into a party look for their models. The models got to choose their clients, so there was a slight shuffle with a handful of designers. The model-as-client episodes are a reminder that while the models have opinions, it's ultimately up to the designer to know what is both visually stunning and matches their aesthetic.

There are still too many contestants, I don't think I heard a peep from Captain Jack Sparrow or last week's winner Emilio. We still get a lot of quirky Ping, including her pronunciation of "Buttocks." As for Anthony, I'm tired of him ending statements by announcing "period." The real question is, will these outlandish characters survive the long haul, or are they being focused on because they will be eliminated?

'Project Runway' Season 7 - Lifetime Announces New Cast Members

by Kim Potts, posted Dec 16th 2009 12:50PM
Here they are: The 16 contestants who will star in the seventh season of fashion design reality series 'Project Runway' (Jan. 14, 10PM ET, Lifetime). The competition has moved back to New York City, fashion experts Michael Kors and Nina Garcia are back in their judges chairs full-time and the designers are competing for another fabulous package of cash and prizes, including an editorial feature in Marie Claire magazine, the opportunity to sell his or her clothing line on Bluefly.com, a $50,000 technology suite by HP and Intel and $100,000 in cash from L'Oréal Paris to launch their own fashion line.

But who, if anyone, will emerge as this season's big scene stealer? Will there be another early front runner, like season 6's eventual winner, Irina? Take a gander at the new faces and their backgrounds and see if you agree with our prediction: The guy who looks like a cross between season 5 'Project Runway' winner Christian Siriano and 'Big Brother' season 8 winner "Evel" Dick Donato seems like he might stir up some drama this season ...

Review: Project Runway - Finale Part 2 (Season Finale)

Project Runway's final three (L to R): Carol Hannah, Irina, and Althea(S06E14) It's finally the end of Project Runway season six, and Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina get to show off their looks. The three were evenly matched with a solid concept, good models, and similar makeup consultations. I've been disappointed with the way this season turned out after its long hiatus, and I'm hoping that next season's return to New York will be better.

In the end, I got the reunion show I was wondering about, in the form of Models of the Runway. It was the weirdest use of Project Runway's footage because the models didn't have any involvement in many of the videos.

Project Runway: Fashion Headliners

Althea Harper makes touch-ups on her paper dress.(S06E05) I have a problem with this season of Project Runway. The contestants seem to focus on how much they hate other designs instead of being friendly and helping or saying that the outfit looks like a hot mess to their face. They hope that the clothes will sink the competitors, so they stay silent.

The drama continued this week when Tim Gunn revealed that the challenge was using newspaper as fabric. The unconventional material challenges lead to a lot of failures (fat paper Minnie Mouse from Season Three's Garbage challenge comes to mind), but overall, the contestants stepped up their game.

Project Runway: What a Girl Wants

The models of Project Runway
(S06E04) Project Runway loves messing with their designers. This week's challenge was that the models were their clients. It's not groundbreaking (season one's Wedding Dress Challenge comes to mind), but the real challenge is trying to tell these girls that they're delusional and not designers. Epperson's model Matar wanted an orange, punk, flowing, tiger dress. Thankfully, he took pieces and translated it correctly.

Tim announces that this is the first one-day challenge. This group has it easy; season five's first four challenges were all one-day. They probably wanted to make sure Johnny didn't have another mental breakdown and quit.

Same format, same judges and yes, same fabulous, Emmy-nominated host. But Heidi Klum is busy with more than just season 6 of the 'Runway.' There's a special, two-hour 'All-Star Challenge' before the premiere (Thurs., Aug. 20, 8PM ET), a 30-minute 'Models of the Runway' after every episode this season (Thurs., Aug. 20, 11PM ET) ... oh, and did we mention she's also seven months pregnant with her fourth child – a girl -- with hubby Seal?

AOL TV talked to Klum about all three shows to find out which new designers to watch, what some of our favorite alums are up to and why there's more drama with the models than meets the eye. -- By Maggie Furlong
