Can We Talk About Last Night’s Project Runway?
In Reap What you Sew, the aptly named episode four of Project Runway, the designers were asked to make an outfit for INC/Macy’s: A tough challenge, but even harder when they were told to work in teams of three. Well before the judging, Keith was sent home for breaking some of the competition’s rules (more on that after the jump). After all the collaborating, sewing and strutting down the runway, Angela (left) came up from the ashes: She and her team won for their “Empire State Building” inspired outfit. (Click here to see it at Macy’s website.) Hmmm. Where have heard that one before? Got an opinion to share? Click through to the next page to join in the conversation!

Angela M. says:
Okay…. You call that a scandal? Was anybody else disappointed that all that hype didn’t add up to something more dramatic? A few tears at least! (Where’s Andre when you need him?) But Keith was annoying and amazingly smug, so I won’t miss him. As far as the winner, Angela’s team pulled it together and the outfit was nice — but aren’t cropped jackets over? Or should I say, aren’t they “Triple LY??” It seems like all the cute, harmless girls (Bonnie and Katherine) keep getting kicked off. If I had to put money on it, I’d pick Michael is the rising star.
Michael is my pick for the rising star too! I think he’s secretly amazing, and I am just waiting for his shot at the spotlight. I still love that coffee filter dress. And Keith having pattern-making books?
Double snooze. I’m just sad that Robert is floundering right now. A little slutty but a little sporty sounds more like one of the Spice Girls than an outfit you would expect from a Barbie designer. Where’s
the pink and sparkly? It would have been more fun than that. And as for Angela’s redemption, whatever. I still hate those stupid rosettes. If I had to pick one piece from the show, I would have gone for Jeffrey’s
pants. They looked like Daryl K at her best. As for next week, I’m excited for them to remake Diane Von Furstenberg- totally gave it away in those sneak clips!
Someone, possibly Oscar Wilde, said the mark of genius is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in one’s head simultaneously. Definitely not claiming that for myself. I had four hours sleep after writing PEOPLE’s next cover story, so I’m a bit bleary, but here are my two semi-lucid opposing thoughts after this week’s PR:
1. Angela’s outfit was the rightful winner. I could totally see it in Macy’s. Wouldn’t necessarily buy it, but given the parameters of the challenge, she met it best.
2. I still loathe Angela and wish she could have won the challenge and been eliminated, if only for repeating that whole “inspired by the Empire State Building” bilge. Way to subconsciously remind people of PR season 1 winner Jay McCarroll’s “Chrysler Building” dress for Banana Republic! (No, he didn’t win that challenge; annoying Wendy did.)
Also, go back and check the record, but I believe I predicted it would be shifty Keith who got kicked out. Poor Alison & Sebelia had no chance despite their extra 1/3 effort -— no way was Heidi going to put Keith the Korrupt’s design in every major Macy’s in America.
Finally, my husband, also a loyal viewer despite owning only 2 pair of shoes that would be out of place at the gym, has nicknamed crazy Vincent, “Pinenut.”
Totally with you on Angela’s Jay McCarroll Chrysler Building rip off, Allison. Nina “I’m bored” Garcia should have been all over that. And I’d just like to point out that this is the FOURTH episode in a row in which Angela has worn a pouf skirt, or as Laura brilliantly stated, “a quilted extravaganza of pouf.” My Kajagoogoo CD (see last week’s post) is now officially cracked. In other news, who knew that Robert had such a buff little body underneath his prim button downs? The man wore not one, but two ridiculously tight tanks this episode. You go with your bad self, Mr. Barbie Designer. Let’s just hope that Vincent doesn’t follow his lead…there must be FCC regulations on how much chest hair is allowed on prime time TV.
Anne Marie says:
I totally thought of you Allison when Keith’s male pattern boldness was revealed (sorry, puns are so LY. I will now unsuccessfully hang myself with a coral cowl neck).
But come on, Keith still yielded three of the best, I’d-buy-them-if-I-had-the-scratch outfits, and yes, I’m including this weeks, even tho tattoo boy + side part did the work. And regarding his lying + cheating streak, he’ll fit right in to the fashion world. Steve Madden + Roberto Cavalli, anyone?
(Oh, and thanks for the Von Furstenburg spoiler! I had no idea! GRRRRR)
