Project Runway's Pretty Pretty Makeovers

Sorry that I missed last week's recap, people. Sandhya was kicked because she made a onesie for a pre-teen girl. It was sufficiently horrid for the judges to be like "Ohhh. You aren't as innovative as we thought. You're out there and wacky." There's a fine line between out-of-the-box thinking and out-of-your-mind designing.

I've been bored with the runway lately. There's nothing fantastic or original. Maybe I'm underwhelmed since Sean's fun little gimmick with the dye packs on the Rainway. How can you top the rainway?

Project Runway Recap: It's Raining Product Placement

A curved display. How can we turn this into a challenge that totally has nothing to do with the display itself? Let's make it about rain!

I actually love this challenge, but the way PR tries to throw in product placement is a bit of a joke. I'd love some honesty here. “We can't keep having runways unless someone pays our bills. This challenge is sponsored by this curved display.” I could totally get behind that.

Anyway, a Rainway! I've actually been waiting for this since I saw it on the previews a while back. It's an avante guard challenge, which is fun, too. The contestants can make whatever they like. Create new shapes and designs.

Project Runway: Saved by the Gunn

Saved by the Gunn

I don't know what the name of the episode is really. That's what I'm calling it. 

Based on the previews of this week's episode, I wasn't surprised to see Tim use his save on Char. That should have been used later in the competition. I liked the idea of the Tim Gunn save because sometimes a designer will take a huge misstep and need to be saved -mostly from themselves. It shouldn't be used for designers that tug at Tim's heart strings, or that he's grown fond of over the weeks. It should be used on a talented designer that falls on his or her face at the last minute. I don't think Char will make it to the end unless she ups her game a bit.
