Aaaaaand we’re back for round two of Project Runway All-Stars: Part Deux.
The designers walk into a Nine West store and they are mega-excited about it. I don’t know anyone that excited to walk into a Nine West but this is Project Runway. Not Heidi declares that this will be disco week! The designers have to pick a shoe for a disco party and design a piece to wear with it. The prize is…. being featured in a nationwide Nine West campaign. Wow. They are being super subtle with the Nine West love, huh? Designers do their picks, sketches and off to Mood! They scramble with pretty fabrics and then go back to the workroom. Our designers only have one day so they must hurry, hurry, hurry!
Laura Kathleen is paranoid that nobody likes her. Yes, you are right. You’re annoying… moving on. Wendy Pepper and Suede are friends, so that can only mean one thing: alliances looming in the background! Kayne is making a gown…. with stripes! Gasp! Line ’em up, gurl or Mizrahi will have a heart attack! There’s a random lunch break and for some reason, there’s magically a disco ball on the ceiling. That means it’s a disco dance off. Funny, we’ve never seen that before. Then, our designers get a note and it turns out… Karl Lagerfeld loves some ProRun! More mayhem in the workroom, Andrae is nowhere close to finishing but no matter! On with the (runway) show!
Judge Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman and guest star Nine West creative director Rafe Totengo ready to see these costumes, I mean ensembles hit the catwalk!
Ivy, Casanova and Uli take the top spots while Wendy, Kayne and Andrae are scraping the bottom. Andrae ends up being super animated per usual and it’s not cute. Uli shows a dazzling dress but didn’t really makes a 70’s dress, Ivy had the same problem that it wasn’t really a disco dress and Casanova’s dress looked good from the back, but the color and length was off. Wendy’s print and chain on her piece was atrocious, Andrae was once again all over the place and Kayne was too JLo.
Uli wins the challenge and she gets her outfit in the fall Nine West campaign. That’s good, right. In the end, Wendy ends up going home while Andrae lives to fight another day. The villain gets kicked out! It was just the prints and chains that killed her… how will Suede go on without her?!
