Last time on Project Runway the designers were inspired by shoes from the Marie Claire closet. Alexander whacked Miranda over the head with a bolt of plaid and eliminated her. Or, something like that.
Me, too, but mine was color blocked & graphic.
It's a secret.
It's a Heidi Klum New Balance challenge!
In five teams of two, they tackle the 3-legged race, the tire run, the wheelbarrow race and the flag grab. The team of two that finishes first gets first shot at the fabrics provided, and an extra hour of work time. It's a one day challenge, creating fashionable activewear. The winning look will be part of HK's collection. Please tell me you saw that coming.
The teams are: Dom & Justin, Jeremy & Alexander, Helen & Bradon, Kate & Alexandria, and Karen & Ken.
Ken is unhappy being paired with Karen. Of course he is. (If he wins the whole season, he'll probably complain that they give him all the cash and prizes in an inappropriate manner.) Karen, 29, knows Ken, 24, is "miserable."
I'm not excited about this, because this is like me trying to beat something with my grandmother.
Wait, you use her like a weapon, an instrument?
Helen & Bradon lose their early lead when they forget part of the course. Dom & Justin win the early fabric selection and the extra hour of work time.
Alexandria queries what Helen asked Tim, and she says she won't repeat it. Ken gets upset about this, swearing at her. Yes, Alexandria can let it slide, but Ken has to use this as an opportunity to fight. I think he needs his own business, as in minding one's own. Ken interviews that Helen gave him attitude. As Ken harasses Helen, she does let on that they can all reference the NB items. So, it's not a secret anymore. Helen calls Ken "Sandro part 2."
Ken threatens the "ignorant ass bitch." Soon Ken takes a break and calls home, speaking to a mentor from church. Huh? What is he gonna do when he gets to Matthew 5:44?
Tim puts his referee outfit back on and has a pow wow with Ken. Wow, he is supportive, which is sweet. Ken, under Tim's guidance, apologizes to Helen and gets a hug, too. He says he is better now.
She only has three hours left. What will she do?
I suggest using the Professor's invention
to keep repeating the last 10 seconds
so you can have more time.
Dom's look is admired by Heidi. She reduces the piping width on Alexander's top. Jeremy got a bit sunburned. How long were they THERE at the field? Ken is told his outfit looked too scuba.
Bradon's seaming is discussed. Alexandria is doing another dropped-crotch pant. Heidi approves. Alexandria acknowledges that Zac won't approve. Why go with a design that won't win over ALL of the judges?
"Pop Goes The World" enough?
I've heard it more this year than in
early 1988. Stop it, Tide!
early 1988. Stop it, Tide!
On runway day Tim says, "The Belk accessory wall is there to use if you so choose." Way to sell that brand, Mr. G! During model fitting, Karen's model hates the outfit. Uh-oh! We get our Scott & Johnny sightings and then we're onto the runway.
Joining Heidi, Zac and Nina (and Tim) is Michael Kors. Will he say "it looks like" and reference two unrelated concepts? Or, describe everything as "disco?"
Alexandria Von Bromssen
Laugh while you can.
Kate is in, bien sur. Alexandria is in. Oh, wow, I thought she would be 2nd to last.
So, will she show as a decoy at Fashion Week?
Do the top 10 or top 9 show?
J'ai une bonne idée. Why don't we delve into some minor statistics and see how the season is going?
Next time: Nina is blonder than Heidi.
After the runway, HK sends them all back to the work room. That bad, eh?
