Project Runway Season VI Rundown

Oh my goodness! How am I already two episodes behind? I finally caught up on Project Runway this weekend and I have to say that I am pretty impressed so far. Here's the rundown so far (spoilers ahead)....

Episode 1 ~ Drop It Like It's Red Carpet Hot

This episodes challenge was to create a "red carpet look". Pretty generic yes, but they had quite the range of red carpets to choose from. It was so nice to see the return of debonair Tim, ultra tan Michael, always stylish Nina and my fave supermodel of all time Heidi (I could have done without Lindsanity).

Glamorous and sexy as hell, designer Irina did not disappoint!

I am already a huge supporter of Louise. I think this dress deserved to be in the final two.


Winning Design:

Christopher wowed the judges and myself with this tiered ruffle party dress perfect for the VMA's. Creative, fun and flirty...watch out for this self taught designer.


Bottom Two:

Mitchell, Mitchell, Mitchell...I know you blamed your sheer hot mess on the model being bigger (gosh forbid) than the measurements on her card, but this dress was bad from the get go. Blech. Stevie Nicks called, she wants her dress from Stand Back Tour back.

Poor Ari...I am not sure what planet she was on when this challenge was assigned but Heidi and the rest of the judges felt fit to keep her out there a little bit longer with her elimination from the competition. WTF is this outfit seriously? (On a random side note, am I the only one who thinks Ari looks JUST like Samantha Ronson if she wore makeup...unfortunately for Miss Ari, Lindsay Lohan was just not that into her designs.)


Episode 2 ~ Yo Mama

This challenge was actually quite clever as when are you ever gonna see those runway models with tummies like that? (Never is the answer). Rebecca Romijn was not only the muse and inspiration but also the celebrity guest judge. Her only requirements for this challenge was a cute, fitted maternity outfit for any event. The designers creations ranged from totally chic to freak on the street...

YBB Faves:

Louise again did not disappoint with this hand dyed, layered satin number. Absolutely stunning.

Althea created a totally sexy, flawless navy blue gown with ribbon bust. It was so pretty, and totally a dress anyone could wear regardless of if they were preggers or not.


Winner:

Shirin wowed the judges with intricate stitching along the waist and a pretty coat to top the dress off. Personally I thought Louise or Althea should have won, but I can see the appeal of this number.


Bottom Two:

Mitchell found himself yet AGAIN in the bottom two. But not because his design lacked promise, more that his short making skills were WAY off. I mean, I was watching thinking, can't you just cut the inseam and bring them in a bit? Apparently the answer was no, and these sloppy shorts made their debut down the runway. Yuck.

However, it was Malvin who got the boot with his weird concept taken a bit too literal and too far. I mean this model looks like she is carrying the baby around post pregnancy...A sling with cute pants and a top with feathers was all it ended up being. And so sweet little Malvin got Auf'ed.

So far my favorite designers are Althea, Louise, Christopher, Johnny and Carol. Tonight's episode has the designers pairing up which always makes for drama and interesting collaborations. Can't wait! See you tomorrow with another rundown!

Agreed about the SamRo look alike. No one is standing out as a fave just yet but I am diggin Althea's stuff. Mitchell (who I think looks like a mini Perez) has got to go!

B ~ You should definitely check out this season! I just love watching them transform $50 worth of fabric into something fabulous!

Shelby~ I never thought of Mitchell as a mini Perez but you are TOTALLY right! And your wish is PR's command! See ya Mitchell!
