This is what we saw on the runway last night; I loved it!!!
Thank you to Chris March and all of the beautiful ladies for breathing a little life into Project Runway last night. I loved the challenge, I loved the attitudes and I loved who finally went home!
Let me back up a little. Obviously last night was the Drag Queen challenge and if ever there was a time to blow it all out and have fun, this was the time. Just a side note; David Dust in his recap last week talked about how hilarious some of these ladies were (including Hedda Lettuce, Sweetie, and Varla Jean) and they all delivered. Not only were they beautiful but I loved their personalities, especially Hedda when she back talked Suede and almost made him cry (a whole other story) but I digress.
So anyway, Chris March came out with his wonderful laugh and introduced the ladies to the designers. Each designer was paired with a "Queen" and had to design a look that fit her personality. Another note (I am doing a lot of that this morning) all of these costumes/outfits were going to be auctioned off to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, which I thought was a wonderful use of the beautiful clothes. Back to last night; everyone seemed excited about the challenge and really put a lot of thought and imagination into what they created. Except (you knew there was going to be an except) Keith and Daniel. Once again Keith created an outfit that looked like it had been through a shredder and Daniel (and his taste level) created a dress (granted the dress was in bright, ugly colors) not a costume.
During the course of the episode last night Suede was apparently visited by his dead grandfather (?) and was told to put lettuce heads on a pair of gloves. Hedda apparently did not like this "vision" and called Suede lazy (hilarious). They worked it out in the end with Suede telling her that she hurt his feelings but I still feel as if Hedda Lettuce looked like Dino the dinosaur from The Flintstones. Just a quick question; does everything out of Suede's mouth sound rehearsed, practiced and created for the greatest shock factor possible? He is really trying to cash in on his 15 minutes and it is turning me off completely.
The runway show was fabulous with RuPaul as the guest judge (does she look a little gaunt?) but I disagreed with the judges about Terrie's outfit (so did Tim apparently). It was way too much going on to suit me but what do I know? The top two were Korto and Joe (the straight man; isn't it ironic) with Joe winning for his pink sailor jumpsuit. By the way when Joe walked back after winning Terri looked like she was trying to restrain herself from getting into it with Joe. Now that would be interesting. Who would win Terrie or Joe? HMMMMMMM.....
Of course Daniel and Keith were the bottom two with Daniel finally going home. He still looked like a bratty child on the runway and he left reiterating his "good taste level".
Next week is a mystery on the top of a building with the echo of Stella musing about a "bika bar". Starting to get my mojo back for Project Runway. Later taters!!!!
