Layana won the design challenge with her female server uniform.
James was auf'd for his 2nd attempt at a male server uniform.
It's morning at the Atlas, and Cindy thinks her team is in a world of hurt. Michelle interviews that if The Dream Team tanks again, she's gonna needs drugs. In another room Stanley is saying there are weak links in team Keeping It Real. Daniel starts running through several names. ¿Por qué? They've been winning so far. I thought they were getting along. Okay, there have only been two challenges, but they are indeed 2 & 0. In yet another room, Kate is telling Samantha that people may THINK she is weak, but that she is a fighter. Can she hear them in the other room, or did a producer just run up to here and tattle? Oh, Daniel just said that Kate is weak, and Stanley lists the 37 reasons why. Remember that. No, wait, forget that! Let me just ask it right now: Did they film this opening montage of waking up in NYC AFTER the challenge's winner was announced? Remember THAT. Yeah, I'm slow on the uptake, but I'm calling on B&M, that perhaps they are writing scripts for everyone, or, manipulating things, to justify the outcome. As if the judging alone isn't enough.
God, I feel like I'm back in junior high after watching all that peer-trashing. It's Project Runway TEAMS, not Project Runway JUNIORS, right?
At any rate, the designers walk into the work room while the s7e1 introduction to Janeane Ceccanti (using the revolving doors incorrectly) music plays. Tim and presents await the contestants. It's better than Christmas! Ben interviews … wait just a minute, look at that, you can see Ben's eyes moving as if he's reading a cue card, in monotone "I … wonder, … what … could … it … be." Well, maybe it's just 'morning' voice. Ya know, I'm starting to appreciate s8 more and more. At least all that horrible drama and hatred for Mr. Costello seemed to be genuine, or contestant originated, if unreasonable or unnecessary.
Over in the work room, Cindy is not understanding her fabrics. All I can think of is s7 Anthony getting eliminated for a polyester condom, and then s8 Michael Costello using some fabric beautifully, without knowing what to call it.
What, is Joe gonna turn it into a cat?
Let's see how they did.
TEAM KEEPING IT REAL
Joseph Aaron Segal
Michelle Lesniak Franklin
Tu Suthiwat Nakchat
For a third time in a row, Team Keeping It Real wins! They get to wait in the back room while the judges rip on the bottom team.
Heidi will wear your design in one of the advertisements.
Also, congratulations to Daniel for his SECOND win.
Heidi will wear his design when she is out promoting her "Surprise."
Cindy is out for her poor fabric choice & vision.
Alright, we can get excited, Bette Midler is next week. Are they just repeating two challenges at once, the flower store challenge and the hardware store challenge? I **loved** the British and the Australian hardware store challenges, and I liked some of the U.S. works, too. I guess there goes my answer for the next unconventional materials challenge: No, no new ideas this time.
Some questions ....
Does Swatch anoint the winner at Mood every week?
Maybe it isn't B/M after all?
Why was Stanley so emotional during BEN's runway?
Was it that bad?
Was he crying over his own look, which Heidi called out
(along with Richard's) for being pretty bad.
Is Tim reading her palms?
Now to go look at the spoilers for the top 8 who all showed at Fashion Week!
