So last week on Project Runway All Stars, we got rid of Irina, or Elena — I can never tell the two apart. And what kind of spectacular challenge will the remaining six designers face this week? Make an outfit for a fashion blogger in the next big trend for 2014. Hey! How come nobody is making me an outfit? Grumble, grumble, grumble.
Q: What do frogs wear to go out on the town?
Viktor is so getting the Elimination Cut today, with a whole big to-do over switching from a jumpsuit to a dress and jacket the night before the runway show. Seth Aaron is playing it way too safe with some kind of color-blocked dress we’ve all seen a million times on the sales racks, and Korto is going big and bold with a white pantsuit that guest judge Nina Garcia is going to adore. I have no idea what Elena is doing, it’s almost like she’s building stripes out of foam. Whatever it is, it’s not good.
To the runway!
Seth Aaron’s striped cocktail dress is a total snore, though those stripes are pleasantly slimming.
Christopher’s olive green lace trench coat and/or dress is just so sloppy, and he totally ignored the Radiant Orchid color.
Viktor’s black dress and bomber jacket are nothing special.
Elena’s striped monstrosity makes her blogger look like she is in blogger jail, possibly in solitary confinement, and definitely wrapped in a straight jacket and ribbons.
Korto’s white pantsuit is lovely, and the purple is smartly applied on the interior…petals? What are those flaps? Whatever they are, this is pretty.
Ooh! Another guest judge, Christian Siriano! There’s also Isaac Mizrahi, Nina Garcia, and Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein. Also, Alyssa Milano of the NFL.
They have some likes and dislikes. Seth Aaron and Elena get sent to the back as safe, which translates to, “Your designs are so boring that we don’t even want to deal with you today.” Korto is the only true winner in the group, with the judges loving the ruffles and the bold white color and soft structure. So the win goes to Korto, who skips off stage.
That leaves Viktor and Christopher on the bottom. Nina says that Christopher’s dress looks like “seaweed coming from the swamp,” which it does, but still, that’s a little harsh. I would’ve called it “moss growing on a rock.” Viktor’s outfit was just way too ordinary for the judges, and it made his model look shlumpy. Also, the jacket has absolutely no relation to the dress, except they are both considered to be garments.
And with that, the judges eliminate Viktor.
