Seriously, was last night the most boring episode of “Project Runway” ever? Let’s recap, in a half-assed manner:
â€¢ No Michael Kors.
â€¢ No Nina Garcia.
â€¢ No drama, or at least, no storyline. Epperson misses his kids: awww. BFD.
â€¢ Predictable outcome (Come on — who didn’t see Qristyl getting the boot right from the “Last week on ‘Project Runway’” intro?).
â€¢ And the challenge: Design a dress. For a model. Wow. Rough.
What made the episode watchable:
â€¢ Guest judge Jennifer Rade. I don’t know who this chick is, but when she told Qristyl that her model wasn’t a designer, “thank god,” I wanted to reach through the television and give her a handshake. No wonder Nina Garcia and Michael Kors were absent — the volume of sheer bitchiness in the room would have caused the “PR” set to spontaneously combust.
Next week’s episode seems like it might be a return to the wacky “PR” challenges of yore: in the preview, Heidi says something about the answers being black and white, which I’m hoping means the designers have to create something out of newspaper (who said print is dead?).
