Doing Project Runway recaps makes me excited and as close to happy as I can get right now. But, for the past few seasons, reading the comments just astound me. I get that we might not all agree on the fashions. But, we can’t even identify the villians and the underdogs. Newsflash, Bones is the villain! Did he save his team on last week’s episode? Yes. But, once we get to individuals tonight… well, let’s wait and see. His blocking of Christian from his teammates so they could not get any of his advice is all you need to know. But fans of him should not be concerned. The resident asshole generally goes far into the challenge for drama/production’s sake.
The Gang Heads Off To Mood
The contestants haven’t even left the runway filming yet, but Christian Siriano pulls then all back on set to tell them their next assignment. They will need to make three piece streetwear look. Hmmm will the head diaper count as a piece? They get some mediocre advice from a social media influencer. Basically he tells them what streetwear is. They will be receiving model cards at the house including male, female and nonbinary. It’s a two day individual challenge. There was a free for all grabbing model cards and Prajjé got the last card. He’s not thrilled. He’s upset that his male model is white. He wants to do a Haitian look and doesn’t see it on a white guy. He’s not wrong.
Meg who I loved on the episode, it basically making things worse for Prajjé. I hate when someone from one race tells someone from another race they are “insulted on their behalf.” Shut it Meg. Let him do what he needs to do. You do you. At Mood, Meg doesn’t listen to Christian when she talks to him about doing look with muted colors. She did muted colors the week before. Things aren’t looking good for my girl. She wants to do muted colors because her model is Asian? Who are these fools and why are the back talking Christian Fucking Siriano? How would Tim Gunn respond to this insolence?
For The Love Of God, Listen To Christian
Thank you Anna Zhou, for being the first person to accept and thank Christian for his advice. I’m not sure her look is really streetwear, but I am interested to she where she goes with it. There are a few people who are either Japanese, or have lived in Japan. Darren has a very interesting idea, his male model in a street dress. Or maybe the model is nonbinary? Either way, it’s edgy. Katie’s look is like an explosion of color that seems costumey to Christian. Did she listen? What do you think? I’m rooting for Prajjé. Christian gets Prajjé and another female to swap so he can have a black model. Her name is not on my contestant list.
I am tired of seeing Meg’s dingy bra. She’s also having a breakdown. Christian tried to help her with fabric choices, but she went with all “old man neutrals.” I personally LOVE old man neutrals, but I also never leave my house and am not trying to win a #STREETWEAR competition. We did not see Christian speak with Bones at all. Kenneth wants to switch models with Meg because he wanted an Asian model. The thing is the garments are all almost finished using the measurements they were given. But Meg agrees to do it anyway.
Meg Is Awful!
However, she is a huge bitch about it. Meg’s new model actually says to her, “Don’t yell at me like that.” She tries to get Prajjé on her side, but he’s not having it. Meg starts screaming “Fuck you!” over and over at Kenneth who has done nothing to her. I hope she goes home tonight. Meg can’t stop herself from making it worse. She’s confronting Prajjé again. Then she wants to rip her microphone off and storm out. She’s an angry loose cannon. Kenneth starts crying. Everyone LOVES Kenneth’s and a few stop their own projects to go outside and be with him. Such DRAMA! The next morning, Christian arrives to tell everyone that “Meg will no longer be in the competition.”
Kenneth has totally changed his look. He is now incorporating the scraps left over from the other designers into his pieces. Touching. But perhaps not smart. It looks like a badly designed patchwork quilt. We shall see. At the end of the second workday, there are so many designs we have not seen. Many designers are nowhere near done with their designs. Aaron seems like he is losing faith in his design. Prajjé’s look is coming along nicely. Kenneth is still struggling. But it’s SHOW TIME!
The social media influencer, Wisdom Kaye is this week’s guest judge. Darren’s look it up first. It’s some pretty good streetwear. He did the male model in a skirt, a black fishnet t-shirt and a edgy leather jacket with graffiti. We’ll have to see if pretty good is enough. Katie’s look on a female model doesn’t impress me. too many accessories, too many colors, and no cohesion. She’s in trouble. Prajjé’s model is AH-MAZING. His look is AH-MAZING. The painted jacket, all of it is fantastic. I imagine he will win. I don’t need to see anything else. Chasity’s look is also amazing. But, it’s not really streetwear, It’s very elegant and something you could wear to the opera. Aaron’s look seem to be well made. It’s fine. He should be safe. I like Sabrina’s look, but to me it isn’t really streetwear. It’s really pretty though. Kenneth’s last minute look is not the best. Hopefully he will be safe.
I like Kristina’s look. Her model is not necessarily walking the sames streets as most of the others. But I get it. Shantall (who? I know) apparently she’s been sewing her ass off. Her look is really cool. WOW! We haven’t seen any of Octavio’s look before the runway. It’s kind of like Medieval Times meets Manhattan. His model Andy, OWNED THE RUNWAY. Anna’s model, Mimi also rocked the runway. First reveal of the season. lol. I don’t know where Coral Castillo was hiding last week, but I just added her to tags. These looks are are SO MUCH BETTER than last season. Bone’s look was middle of the pack. Atlanta homeboy, Zayden’s look is great and very Atlanta streetwear. He closed the show which is a good sign. YAY!
It’s All Up To The Judges
I have to say that there are a lot of options for top three. And not that many options for bottom three. This was a good runway overall. Zayden cries when he is in the to three. I may have some allergies myself. Aaron is also in the top. I like his look, but I think there were better ones. But he’s totally deserving. Oh wow! Aaron’s bomber jacket is reversible and his pants can also be worn two ways. Nice work Aaron! He could totally win. Darren is in the bottom. 🙁 The judges’ loved Prajjé look. I feel like he will win, but any of the top three are deserving winners.
On the other end of the spectrum, Katie’s look is ridiculous. The judges called it childish and kitschy. However, with Meg’s nervous breakdown, I doubt anyone is going home tonight. She got lucky. Kenneth tries to explain why he changed his look. He says he has never felt humiliated before. And he and Prajjé are both crying. The judges seem confused. Surely they were told why Meg was missing. Then I realize that Kristina is still out there too! Oh no! Liked her look! Oh YAY she is also in the top! The guest judge wants her models top for himself. This was a really good runway for the most part.
three FOUR! are: Zayden, Aaron, Prajjé and Kristina. The bottom three are: Darren, Katie, and dear sweet Kenneth. The judges have their work cut out for them on who to pick as a sinner. All four literally deserve to win. I’m torn. I lean toward Prajjé. But they seem to be leaning toward Aaron. But they all agree this is one of the hardest decisions of all the seasons. There is no wrong choice here.They really hate Darren and Kenneth’s looks. For me Katie is the worst.
Prajjé wins! No one is eliminated! YAY! This was a good episode!
