Project Runway Season 4 – What’s The Skinny?

Like most of the challenges so far, the fifth one proved to be very interesting.

When new models were brought out in oversized clothing, Heidi explained that each woman had experienced significant weight loss and were wearing their favourite clothing from their heaviest days.

The challenge?

Create a new look that would be appropriate for every day.

Christian tells the camera: “I was, like, holy shit, I’m going to die, ’cause this is so not me at all.”

(Um, who is this then?)

Of course, nobody wanted to work with the woman in the wedding dress.

When Heidi started plucking names out of a hat, you could tell how tense everybody was, praying and hoping their names wouldn’t get picked. And when she finally called out Steve’s name, you had to give him props for not showing much of a reaction.

(Though, you later cut to him saying, “Oh. Dear. God….it felt like death on a stick.”)

Seriously, they should have given Steven extra points or…something for the shit deal he got with the wedding dress. I mean, seriously, what the hell can you make out of an old wedding dress that’s suitable for every day?

Once they were back in the work room, Tim reminded them that they had to design an outfit that would be suitable for every day and which would also express the designer’s point-of-view.

While things started off okay, things weren’t going so great for Jack, who developed a staph infection on his face — which forced him to bow out of the competition.

It was difficult for all of the designers to watch him go — yes, it’s a competition, but you know that nobody wanted Jack to have to bow out like this.

As a result of Jack leaving, Chris March was brought back onto the competition.

(Laughed my ass off when he told the camera he’d been on every diet known to mankind and that he’d lost and gained so much weight that he estimates he probably weighed 1,500 at one point. Is that even possible?)

And of course, Ricky cried. Again.

Would an episode of Project Runway Season 4 be complete without this man shedding a few tears?

Tim, of course, was spot on in his blog when he wrote:
“How was it that so many of the designers lost sight of the premise of the challenge: to create an everyday look? To repeat: it eluded me.”

Christian definitely deserved to win with this outfit:

Rami’s concoction wasn’t an “every day” look, but I still thought it was pretty great:

Michael Kors cracked me up when he described Chris March’s design as “so Paris hooker 50s”:

And poor Steven wound up leaving because of this:
