This week’s Project Runway All Stars challenge is all about the glamour and romance of the 1930’s. Bonnie and Clyde, the new mini-series premiering on Lifetime, is the inspiration. The designers will be working with a partner to create looks inspired by both Bonnie and Clyde. The designs must be updated and could be worn by a young, modern couple. One team member will create a men’s look, and one will design a women’s look. Even though the looks must compliment each other, designers will be judged separately.
Christopher picks Viktor, Seth Aaron chooses Jeffrey, Irina selects Mychael, and Korto is paired with Elena. Everyone works well together and there is minimal drama, until the model fitting. Jeffrey’s male model for his menswear look doesn’t fit the clothes. The model’s measurements are a year old, and his muscles are bigger from working out. This makes Jeffrey livid!
On the runway, host Alyssa Milano announces the winner will be a fashion designer on a Lifetime original movie! They will get screen credit for their work. Host Georgina Chapman couldn’t make it this week, so Project Runway alum and eveningwear designer Austin Scarlett is filling in for her. The other guest judges are supermodel Bar Refaeli and fashion designer Elie Tahari.
After the runway show, the judges swooned over this week’s looks. Elena and Korto are safe. Irina got a high score, but the winner of this challenge is between Jeffrey and Christopher. The winning designer is Jeffrey. After weeks of getting low scores, he finally won! The lowest scores go to Viktor, Mychael and Seth Aaron, and the elimination comes down to Viktor and Mychael. Sadly, Mychael is going home.
“I think we’re going to be frenemies.” –Elena
“It’s like Cary Grant meets James Dean.” –Mychael
“This is like Project Runway total fitness… I lost 15 pounds in 30 minutes… and I’m not a paid actor!” –Viktor
“It’s like my teeth scraping on the curb.” –Jeffrey
“This chick is rockin!” –Seth Aaron
“Did he know how to do it? No. Did Vicky tell you what to do? Yes.” –Viktor
“Not evil villain with white cat. Hello Meester Bond!” –Christopher
“We’re so on schedule it’s sickening.” –Christopher
“I love this so much, I want to kiss you! –Alyssa
“You better relax… reel it in!” –Christopher
