I have been dying to recap the most recent episode of Project Runway but sadly real life drama keeps interfering. I can’t wait to see what happens this week. Despite the weakest group of designers ever, I still love this show. Plus I want to see if Tim saves Swapnil and if anyone makes Tim Gunn say more bad words!
Dear God, Zoe what’s her faces show is still airing on the front of this recording. Since I have to tape in the middle of the night, I was able to add five minutes to the end this time so um, YAY! The recap of last week is basically who won, who lost and Tim Gunn cussing out Swapnil!
We start in the apartments and not at Swapnil’s auffing so it is official he is gone. My homeboy, Edmond is the last man standing. This bodes well for him making final three because I doubt they will send three females to the finale. Plus, I want him to win. Kelly seems over confident, and who the hell expected Merline to get this far?
The challenge is inspired by bridges. There are three choices. Who the hell really cares what bridge they get? Fashion based on a bridge could be any fucking bridge. And to make matters worse, they have to use 3d printing. It’s an avant garde challenge. I could be any less interested. The winner gets a 3d Printer. Whoop dee doo. Everyone seems to be going literal except homeboy who may get called out for seemingly doing what he wants and adding some sort of bridge stuff as sort of an after thought. Ashley is going to do pants! Thank God no circle skirt from her this week. She could win.
Side Note: Tim Gunn as yet to use his save, in order for the season to work out right he is going to have to use it. It is already thrown off by the guy who quit. I doubt anyone goes home this week. On the other hand, they may all just be ready to bring this to a merciful end and perhaps add an episode to the final three at fashion week.
Tim seems to love Candice’s look. That makes one of us. Tim sees a bit worried that Ashley’s top and her pant (which I love as long as you are not fat) don’t work in harmony. I still think Ashley can pull out a win. I love homeboy’s dress. I love that he put his name in the 3D stuff. I love Edmond. I hope he wins. It’s hard for me to be unbiased because I just love everything he does for the most part. Tim is very concerned about Merline. Merline feels like she just got an Amber alert on her phone. Sure it looks like crap now, but somehow she seems to manage to pull through. Also, personal story, I am smart phone illiterate. So much so that I ordered one but can’t use any of the smart features because I can’t type in my gmail password on the tiny little keys. So it just sits on a side table in my living room. So the other night, I suddenly hear someone talking in my house. It’s not coming from the TV or my laptop. I’m ready to start shooting when I realize it is an Amber Alert from my phone. I had no idea that happened. You may laugh now. Tim loves Kelly’s very literal interpretation. It is sort of avant garde if you like that sort of thing. It’s really anyone’s game.
Ashley is having trouble with her 3D prints. Candice’s gown is looking way better than I thought. I can’t believe Kelly didn’t go for a dramatic, architectural hairdo. I can’t believe no one did. I would have done a two foot tall stiff style of some sort.
Mel B is the guest judge. How am I just now noticing that Merline is from Savannah! She has been a homegirl this whole time! I have to pull for her too now. It would be great to get two Georgia peaches through to fashion week!
Merline’s look is ridiculous, but she loves it and it is avant garde week and she seems to have fixed the issues that Tim Gunn had, so fingers crossed.
I love Edmond’s look. It’s actually a wearable dress that is gorgeous. He gave his model a stupid veil thing to wear on her face to make it seem more “avant garde.” I would have loved Edmond to use a gray fabric rather than black.
Ashley’s look actually made me say, “oh, wow!” when it came out. But not in a bad way. Ashley has had an advantage all season with her model, who I find to be incredibly hot. #GirlCrush That said, she struggled to use her 3D pieces and she is unhappy with the cohesiveness of her look. I agree that the 3D pieces detract from her look. But I still really like it. Because, smoking hot model.
Candice’s gown does not move me. I hate the 3D print on her boobs. It’s a gorgeous gown that is marred by the inclusion of the 3d print. I think hers is the worst.
Kelly’s garment could have been a show stopper. But I was distracted by her model who seemed to be trying to hold the gown together with her hands. Maybe she just didn’t know what to do with her hands because they had to stay behind the dress. it distracted me.
When it come to avante garde, I am not a good judge. I’m just going to say my favorite was Edmond. My second favorite since it is avante garde would go to Merline. I’m not really sure what the judges will do. With avant garde there is no telling.
Edmond makes up a great story about his dress. Heidi loves it. Mel B loves it. They all love it.
Kelly says that she didn’t like Kelly’s at first but she warmed to it and based on the inspiration, the like it. They think they did a good job getting the avant garde thing going.
Merline they liked the style but it seems reminiscent of a dress from previous seasons. They like it and they expected more from Merline since she is the avant garde person. Mel B really liked the dress. Nina Garcia didn’t think it was avant garde at all. No really bad critiques but she didn’t win and could be in danger if they like Ashley’s.
Ashley really tries to hard sell her inspiration to the judges. Heidi says it walked beautifully. Perhaps she too has a girl crush on Ashley’s model? Mel B says there is a cohesiveness problem. Nina doesn’t get the bridge connection, but she loved it. Somehow, Zac Posen compares it to the Tuareg’s which are my people! Though Tuaregs never crossed my mind, I do see the color reference now that Zac pointed it out. Ashley seems safer than I thought. Ashley’s workmanship is strong. Zac is in love with this look.
Candice struggles on her pitch. Heidi loves it. She loves the crap on her boobs. Nina and Zac don’t think it is avant garde. Zac does love her use of 3D printing and says in that regard it was the best in show. I strongly disagree. I think her 3D prints actually ruin the whole look. Mel likes this dress the best. I just got a good look at the bottom of the dress and it is fantastic. I love the gown I just wish the 3D crap was not on it.
During the upclose inspection, they love homeboy. They love Kelly. But Nina says she wishes the string weave would have continued in the back. They like Merline in sort of a most improved sort of way, which make think she is going to be auffed and then saved. The judges love Ashley. But Mel B doesn’t. Mel B only likes the cape and says the rest in not cohesive. If cohesiveness is a problem, I’d say the cape is what should go. But that’s just me. Mel B’s favorite is Candice. The judges says hers is the best use of the 3D technology, so I guess she wins. I’m not going to be mad about it, because it is a beautiful style. I just hate the 3D part. But if the judges love it, then she should win because that was the whole challenge. The judges keep stressing that everyone did such a good job it’s hard to send anyone home. Foreshadowing a Tim Gunn save.
Kelly wins two challenges in a row. I am only surprised because they seemed to like Candice’s dress the best. Candice and Edmond round out the top three. Mel B has an upcoming event and asks for Candice’s dress. Candice is beyond thrilled.
That leave Ashley and Merline in the bottom. I think Tim will save either one, but I did say that last week as well. But I triple mean it this week! I hate to bring up weight again but Ashley seems larger than when she started. As a fat chick myself, I sort of love that she is wearing a pleated skirt which could be the cause of looking larger with confidence. I’m still sort of getting used to my new ginormous body. So props to her for that.
Merline is auffed. 🙁 Merline is proud of herself for coming in fifth. And my DVR cuts off despite me trying to add minutes. Let me go see if Tim Gunn saved her. It appears he did not. I still say he has to play the save because there are too many episodes left! At least Merline was a good sport.
