It’s time to get started on this week’s Project Runway recap. I’m under the weather today with random shortness of breath and just feeling unwell. But, I am all ready to watch this episode. This probably won’t go up until whenever I wake up Friday because NBCu Media Village doesn’t always release the final look photos timely.
Tonight, the designers are paired with successful accessory designers and will come up with a look to pair with their accessory. Shantall cries when Christian talks about the competition helping out the small business owners (accessory designers) in the pandemic. She is a small business owner too and was affected by the pandemic as well. It affected all of us, even Tamara Tattles! The winning duo will split $25,000.
Off We Go To Mood!
Bones is working with a hat designer. Katie has a shoe designer. She’s also designing a dress that looks just like what she is wearing. Zayden has been paired with a “waste designer” which apparently means she recycles trash to make various accessories. Prajje is paired with a glove maker. Octavio is paired with a headwear designer. They have worked together before designing for Erika Badu. Anna has a hat maker. Shantall has a jewelry designer. Everyone is ready to go buy some fabric!
At Mood they have $400 to spend and also they will have another $200 at an as yet to be disclosed “specialty store.” Coral (who dis?) is doing an all black look for the fifth time and eventually listens to Christian telling her she’s never going to get out of the middle that way. The accessory store is kind of like mood but it is all accessories and trims, and buttons, and jewels. Aaron’s is doing resort wear with a swimsuit. That’s daring. Once again, Anna seems off to a good start. Shantall seems to still have some mental suffering going over Covid. I get it girl, same.
Christian Tries To Help With Limited Success
Prajje is doing a very tasteful 1940s dress in honor of his grandmother on the heels of being in the bottom last week. Kristina carries a paper bag wherever she goes and the other designers mock it. So she wants to put the paper bag on the runway! OH. MY. GOD! Katie is using the fabric she brought from home to make YET ANOTHER FUCKING CLOWN COSTUME! PLEASE LET HER GO HOME THIS WEEK! Bozo the Clown would say this is too much. Christian says to make it a mini dress. It’s just so hideous. Anna’s look is stunning again. She could easily with the whole things.
Bone’s dress is horrible. Christian calls it a big tattered muumuu. Octavio’s dress is great and apparently has twenty yards of fabric in the construction. Christian doesn’t seem to mind Kristina’s paper bag. He does however take offense at Aaron expecting his model to drop her overgarment, for lack of a better word, on the runway to reveal the swimsuit. There are some bad looks but nothing even close to how bad Katie’s look is. If she stays she has to be blowing someone influential. Back at the loft, Zayden’s partner calls to tell him there was an eviction notice on his door.
Chasity’s designer’s handbag is cute and goes well with her all black look. For the most part the designers love their accessories except for Coral. Her red headdress doesn’t match the red in her dress. Octavio’s look is top three for sure! Zayden’s look sadly will probably be on the bottom.
It’s Runway Time
Octavio’s look opens the show with a splash. That black and white polkadot dress is everything. Bone’s look should put him in the bottom. It’s just a mess but he loves it. Coral’s red look turned out much better on the runway than in the sewing room. I’d mark her as safe but it could go either way really. I like Kristina’s lime green look. It might be top three but there is some stiff competition. Katie seems to know she is in trouble but blames the accessory designers shoes. Really? Shatall’s look is safe to me. I’m worried about my homeboy, Zayden this week. Aaron’s swimwear look is nice. He’s safe. Chasity did a great job adding orange stripes to her all black look to tie in with the orange strap on her handbag. She’s safe… maybe in the top three?
Anna may have won the whole damn thing with the very formal black ball gown with jewelry from her designer covering her shoulders and going down her back. STUNNING WORK AGAIN. She is the one to beat this season. I would have loved to see the judges reaction to this dress. Or any of them really, we are not getting any camera time on them during the runway. Prajje’s look is definately top three as well.
My top three are Octavio, Anna and Prajje. My bottom three are Katie, Katie, and Katie. But Zayden will probably be there as well. As will Bones.
The Judges Decisions
ANNA IS JUST SAFE? ARE THESE JUDGES ON THE CRACK? Why are there seven people left for tops and bottoms?
Prajje is on the top! The love the dress, the hat, the gloves. Coral is also on the top. That’s actually well deserved. Kristina’s lime green dress is in the top. I’m not surprised, it is quite lovely. They even thought the “paper bag” was a cute addition. Octavio is also in the top. They loved Octavio and he got “one of the highest scores.
Zayden is on the bottom. Elaine says she doesn’t think he should be in the bottom, but it was just really close. Bones is shocked that he is in the bottom. I am not. The judges REALLY hate it. Bones sort of back talks Brandon. Katie is in the bottom again. I’m shocked! Said no one at all.
While the judges talk, Katie is crying in the back room. The judges don’t seem to like Bones. And they do like Katie.
Kristina won with the paper bag! All four of the people in the top were worthy of the win. Zayden lives to sew another day. Bones stays and KATIE FINALLY GETS SENT HOME!
Next week is an Avant Garde challenge (BLECK) using fake fur. Also, it appears the designers were in some kind of terrible accident! AND BILLY PORTER IS GUEST JUDGE! I LOVE Billy Porter!
