This season, the Project Runway folks decided to capitalize on their empire by adding another PR-related show as a companion to the original. “Models of the Runway,” the 30-minute follow-up show to PR, puts the models in a house together and films their feuds, trials and tribulations.
In the last episode, we got to know the models even better when they turn into the clients.
Here are a few highlights:
- Althea was this week’s winner, with her interpretation of a suit: a poofy mini skirt paired with a gunmetal, scoop-neck tank and a black blazer. I loved the concept, but the skirt had a bit too much poof for my taste.
- My favorite vote would go to first runner up Carol Hannah, whose color-block dress with a fantastically texturized black skirt and chic purple one-shoulder top was young and fun.
- We say goodbye to Qristyl (yes, that is really how her name is spelled) who went against her instincts to create a basic, black and boring dress.
- Elsewhere on the runway, dramatic necklines were the order of the day, from Louise’s dramatic ruffles to Ra’Mon’s electric blue oversized corsage.
The winning outfit is one that lends itself to myriad shoe picks. I must admit that I’m a fan of Althea’s selection for footwear: the patent gray mary jane pumps are killer. But, if left to my own devices, I think I’d choose something a bit edgier. I’m crazy about these gray platform ankle strap sandals with gold studs by Groove, and they’re priced right over at Piperlime.

I liked that Althea created three pieces, plus the ribbon-belt-thing (which Tim Gunn smartly told her not to make look like a cummerbund), rather than a dress. I feel like there have been a lot of dresses this season.
I also thought Christopher’s green grass dress turned out much better than expected. Logan’s lace-feather-prom dress was pretty terrible, but the judge was right when she said he was cute.
Who were those judges btw? And next week’s preview looks like there are more fill-ins. Where in the world is Michael Kors?!?!?
