Speaking at the 92Y last night, Project Runway mentor and all-around great human being Tim Gunn said of Season 8, "I had never been part of a season of the show where I found the judges' decision-making to be more...incomprehensible."
Last night, Tim Gunn visited the four remaining designers at their homes in Hawaii, Denver, Portland and Palm Springs, and checked up on the collections they'd been designing.
Last night, the final four were revealed. But first, we had to watch the final challenge, which was to design an outfit inspired by New York City.
Guys, I am out of the "office" today, but OMG, Ivy! WTF. Feel free to discuss her, the Heidi/Mondo showcase showdown and Gretchen's bike shorts in this open thread.
Well. That whole "cheater" teaser was such a manipulative misdirection. The producers are jerks! But last night's episode was one of the most stunning, ever.
In this teaser for Thursday's episode, Tim Gunn says, ominously, "There is an accusation about cheating." Then: A quick snippet of Mondo, teary eyed. Are the producers misdirecting and manipulating us?
OMG! Couture! And ready-to-wear inspired by couture! Let's jump right into the highlights and lowlights from the runway.
The challenge: To use Jackie Kennedy as inspiration and create "classic American sportswear." But what's considered "classic," or "American" or "sportswear" varied wildly amongst the designers!
The challenge: To create a resort wear ensemble. And have your teammate execute (as in, sew) your design, as you act as a seamstress for them. What counts as "resort"? Funny you should ask!
Even though there will be only four finalists, TEN designers from Project Runway showed collections yesterday. Who are the decoys? Who are the finalists? Who will win??? We don't know. But SPOILER-ISH ALERT: lots of pictures ahead!
Last night's episode involved taking hideous polyester bridesmaid dresses and turning them into something wearable. Results were mixed between "Snooki & The Flintstones" and "secretary from 1987."
Last night's episode was one of the most dramatic so far this season, with an epic diva meltdown, tears, anger, betrayal, backstabbing and one very miffed Tim Gunn.
The unconventional material challenges are always super fun, and in last night's episode, the designers whipped up party outfits — made from crap bought at a store called Party Glitter.
Last night's premiere of Project Runway attempted to breathe new life in the aging series by featuring a new style of introductions. Plus: Tim and Heidi announced that one — or more — designers would be eliminated right away.
