Project Runway: Season Six
Episode: This Episode Is Not Yet Rated
September 24, 2009
Previously on Project Runway: Again, the drama of travel and a life kept me from doing a proper recap. This tale is surely no longer new to you. The designers made paper dresses and Johnny told a big fat lie which even got the unflappable Sir Tim in a lather. In the end, the recovering meth-head was sent off to recover from being a really bad liar, too.
Yes, gentle reader. I was traveling and had no time for this this week either. Instead, I went to the movies.
From the sewing needles of Lifetime and The Weinsteins comes a tale of fashion! intrigue! and bitchy models!
It all began last year. Irina had been granted Double Immunity and got to pick a genre.
"Film Noir!" she said with a slight cackle in her voice. It was the kind of choice a gal like that would make. Tough. Hard as nails. And with a set of legs you could use to walk a runway in Milan.
And then there was that other dame, Louise. Oh, she had an idea this idea that she could be subtle. The kind of subtlety that you could only see close-up, not through the whiskey-soaked peepers of a couple of no-account replacement judges.
And what had they done with Michael and Nina? Had they been Shanghaied in some back alley somewhere? No one was talking, but something tells me that shifty-eyed house-of-style-frau Heidi knows something. Look at her. She has the look of a lady who's got a bun in the oven and still hasn't told the stork. She's got to be hiding something.
"I can' stand it anymore," said Althea, the midwestern blonde with the body for the carnal and an eye for couture. "I don't care if I win another elimination! Just let me keep my model!"
But in the end, it was Louise who had to face the fickle fakes on the judging panel.
"What's that outfit?" asked the goon squad.
"That," said Louise. "It's the stuff that Fashion Week dreams are made of,"
In a world where fashion and crime know no bounds, two designers face off in an epic battle. And only one will live to see the sunrise.
Carol Hannah may look like the girl next door, but she's a hired sewing assassin sent from South Carolina to stitch up the competition.
But one man stands in her way.
His name is Logan. With looks that can make women weep and gay men shiver, he's got the killer face that is set to take. her. down.
She doesn't know why he's after her, but it's her he's after.
And no one can help her. Except one. dapper. mentor.
They came to fight. For the Bryant Park show.
See what happens this summer when Tim Gunn is ... The Patternmaker.
In a time of tradition ... in a place of privilege ... Designer Christopher lived his life on his own terms. Not bound by the cumbersome constraints of fashion school, he chose to carve out his own path. A path of innovation. And elegant design.
Until he met a slav who worked by her own rules. This is Gordana. She wants to make the Roaring Twenties come alive again. But only to a point.
Will she be able to put aside the conventions of the costume shop and make a flapper dress which is truly unique, or will she be sentenced once again to face the brutal barbs of the pretending three?
This Christmas, Lifetime proudly presents Heidi Klum, Christopher and Gordana and a cast of a thousand replacement judges in ... The Age of Insouciance.
From the thrilling pages of Marie Claire magazine! Come two designers with a will to win as great as the grand, untamed West!
Epperson ... and Shirin.
Epperson, who had a rare kind of courage. The kind that would make a dread-locked strip-sewer throw away his comfort zone and make a frilly number for a gunslinging woman who knew when she had to walk the catwalk and when she had to protect the only family she has left.
And Shirin. Here is the tale of a designer, lost in this vast fashion wilderness. Unable to imagine making anything out of denim. Watch as she realizes that a saloon girl costume is all that can save her from certain eliminaton!
This is a drama of searing complexity! And comedic costuming! Of frills and thrills!
Adventure ... from the spray-tanned hills of Studio City! To the snow-swept VIP booths of Le Deux!
Epperson ... and Shirin
In ... The Sergers! (In Velvetvision™.)
Here. In the far reaches of the galaxy. In a world of model swaps and button bags. Out where Botox flows like the waters of the River Styx come two designers from a distant nebula.
Ra'mon of Apostroph and Nicolas from the outer rings of Featherprincia.
And to these men, a visitor has come. A Gunn. And he is armed with steely "make it works" and "go, go, gos."
With one "talk to me" he can reduce Ra'mon's lizard-skin creation to mere shards which can only be salvaged by forces from the farthest galaxy.
Will he be able to buck up the man with hair like hedge maze and bring him back to Earth in time? Or will he be sent out into the silent void of life at the Fashion Bug outlet?
And what of Nicolas? With one blast from a deep space ray, see this bottom dweller usurp the Throne of Kors and steer his icy model ship through a sea of cake frosting conditioner to steal the prize which he does not deserve.
But will Ra'mon survive?
Because in space ... no one can hear you stitch.
