'Project Runway' recap: Sacred Geometry
The designers all show a recent design and everyone is pretty impressive. Mila, naturally, makes something that is color-blocked and Anthony, sweet, sweet, Anthony makes something that Julia Sugarbaker would have loved. No surprises there. But, Rami makes a design that is inspired by the Disney Concert Hall (read: NOT DRAPED).
Then, they all go to the Flatotel and see an encouraging video message from Valentino. Half of the designers cry about it and I thought that was totally lame. The next day, they hear from Angela (who is really just no Heidi, I'm sorry) that they have to make a look reflecting the look they showed previously... with items from a 99 cent store. People are uvulating a lot this season, which I find odd. April from Season 8 has dyed her hair silver and I love it. Anthony decides that he's not going to be too critical of Elisa's nutty behavior, seeing as he had a grandmother committed to the "crazy house" and he knows from crazy. Joanna Coles, the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, is the mentor and she really brings an interesting perspective. She's super hard on Sweet Pea (love!) and Elisa. Austin Scarlett, whose improbably increased affectedness I am still wondering if I love or hate, burns a hole in his plastic dress and has to improvise.
