'Project Runway' recap: The Claws Come Out
Over on the underdog team, where not a soul among them has won a challenge, are April, Mondo, Casanova, Peach, Michael D. and Valerie. They've opted for a military-inspired collection with lace as their fabric of choice. Oh, too bad April didn't have the lace last week for her layered panties. They decide that they want each person to do their own look that has some similar elements.
At Mood, Gretchen is a nightmare, and I'm surprised that the staff hasn't killed her, but adorable puppy Swatch is there, so that's redeeming. Tim doesn't really seem all that impressed with either team's strategy, and this causes Casanova to have a meltdown and threaten to leave. His model talks him off the ledge.
After chaos, they start putting out the collections with Georgina Chapman (designer and co-founder of Marchesa) as this week's guest judge. I kind of love the team that is dubbed Military and Lace. In fact, for all his crying, Casanova's outfit is actually great, with a backless lace shirt and a sexy-as-hell pair of white pants. Naturally, Gretchen says that their collection doesn't go together, but there are metal zippers or hardwear on all of them and some bright tights and matching hair that actually coordinates. Shut up, Gretchen.
Team Luxe (wonder who came up with that name). AJ doesn't see himself in his own collection, but thinks that strong tailoring makes up for that. It's a cohesive collection, but lacks a bit of personality ...
