This week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars starts out with the designers and host Alyssa Milano meeting at the American Museum of Natural History. The museum’s new exhibit features insects, which serves as inspiration for this week’s avant-garde challenge. The creations must be experimental and innovative.
The designers sketch in the museum with their inspiration - live bugs in jars! Later at Mood, Elena loses her sketch and stresses out. To the designer’s surprise, the bugs join them in the workroom. When Zanna Roberts Rassi gives her critiques, she urges the designers to be more avant-garde. Elena is panicking and swearing in the workroom, irritating the other designers.
The day of the runway, Elena is dramatically crying as she scrambles to finish her garment. Then Melissa sobs when she realizes her look isn’t avant-garde enough. So much drama!
This week’s guest judges are jeweler Jennifer Meyer and Project Runway season 9 winner Anya Ayoung Chee. Some looks received high praise, while others faced harsh criticism. This week’s winner is between Mychael and Elena (who was the winner last week). Mychael is declared the winner! Now for the not so favorable looks: Jeffrey is safe even though he received low scores from the judges. He defends his work to the point of making Isaac sweat! The loser comes down to Melissa and Daniel. Melissa’s garment was beautiful, but just wasn’t avant-garde enough. They did not like the length of Daniel’s design and thought it was too literal. Eventually, we learn that Daniel is going home. I’m going to miss him, he was my favorite and his personality lit up the room!
