Eat you.

My first silver lining of the week was of course Project Runway! I thought last week's episode was ok, but not anything to write home about…or write on your blog for that matter. Just kidding! I just didn't feel like there was a real exciting moment this week, unless you consider Tan Man giving cutie Rock-a-Billie chick the stare down! What the crap was that? Rock-a-Billie is totally minding her own business, sewing away like a good little busy be, when all of the sudden she looks up and sees THIS face staring back at her!

He is SO creepy! You know am I starting to wonder if he really is normal, and it's all editing. Maybe he was just having fun? All I know is that I would be pissed if the PR producers were editing me to look like a weirdo. Anyway, whatever type of spell he put on her with those eyes totally worked to her advantage because she won the challenge this week! Yeah for her! She is so cute! Here is her winning dress:

At first I wasn't so sure about this, but the more I see it, the more I like it. I like the funkyness of it being a 50's/80's combo, and you know I'm a fan of purple. To me the purple fabric sets off the funky fabric just enough, so it's not overwhelming.

Here is the second runner up was the reserved girl from last week who created the ugly brown dress. I really would have liked for her to win as well because she had such a bad week before.

I bet you are wondering what the challenge was right? Oops! Just a minor detail I looked over. Each contestant was to go around NYC at night and take some photos that represented NYC at night. Then they were to select one photo and design a dress inspired from the image. I thought this challenge was ok. No really that exciting.

The rainbow dress on the left was made by Emily, who got the boot. I felt bad for her, but it was her own fault for not listening to Tim Gunn when he gave her feedback. These designers are driving me crazy! I wonder if that will be the downfall to all of the contestants this season.

The dress on the right, which looks SO SIMILAR to Emily’s was from Tan Man. I couldn’t believe he wasn’t in the bottom 3.

Two other designs that I was shocked were not in the bottom, were these two:

How boring is a one piece all black jumpsuit? So lame, and way too safe. Guess who made the outfit on the right? That is right, rocker lady. How hideous is that?

It will be interesting to see how long she lasts designing outfits that all look the same. Nina and Michael will get board soon. They always do.

I can't believe you left out Tan Man's whole "holla at ya boy" thing with Tim. Tim was a good sport by not pulling out a gun and blasting the Tan right off tha boy. Ugh!

And the drag queen Cher impersonator (rocker lady) can't stop using leather and lace ups. Enough already! I've seen far too much of this already and it's only the 3rd week.

Will someone please be unique and not some lame copycat or one trick pony?

I also think that Tan Man is trying way too hard to coin a catchphrase a la Christian from last season. The first episode he kept throwing in remarks with "licious" tacked on the end. Then last week he tried to give Tim some other catchphrase that I can't remember. It is pretty annoying. If you watch reruns, you will see what I mean!

Hey, Amber!

Thanks for the reviews of Runway. I never
remember to tune in even though I like to
see the fashions.
