So last night on Project Runway meltdowns happened, two designers said sayonara, and based on some of the so-called work appropriate attire walking down the runway, some of these people have never led life in the real world.

Both Andrea Katz and Kooan said their good-byes by vacating the competition. Raul returned with a vengeance and continued to suck. The designers went to the Michael Kors store to learn what befalls quitters who aren’t bitchy enough – they pussy out and quit PR! They were also there to have it rubbed in their faces about what a big, flipping deal MC is.

So the designers had to create an outfit for the everyday woman on the go. She’s the girl who does everything – she works and cocktails and goes to match.com mixers, she does club hopping and sample sales and mommyhood and then she travels from Paris Fashion Week to Disney World to Kenya but she’s only allowed to have one outfit to wear to everything. So it can’t wrinkle, it can’t be uncomfortable, and it has to be versatile. So that’s like no biggie right?

Yeah – some of these people have never had a job in an office and apparently think all people everywhere work in the office from The Devil Wears Prada.

The guest judges were designer Rachel Roy – who always provides good critique and thoughtful comments – and Hayden Panettiere who was there as the celebrity cuteface.

The best part about this episode was the abundance of Tim Gunn providing actual mentorship and we need more of that. So thanks for a subtle small reminder of what this show used to be.

Well, that was a hot mess of ugly wasn’t it? On last night’s episode of Project Runway the designers were required to find inspiration for a red carpet look from some sort of new Lexus (i.e. shameless product plug which I ignored because it has nothing to do with fashion). If all of that wasn’t exciting enough, they had to work in teams of two (aka: drama-bitchest extraordinaire.).

After making googly eyes at the car and learning the body color must be featured in the design, there’s a twist! They have to design for a “celebrity”!

And not just any “celebrity” – a former PR alum. All of which but Laura Bennett came from the much less exciting Lifetime years of the series. All of the “celebrities” were women, which was good all for everyone but Raul and Alicia, who have nary any experience in the evening gown department. Oopsie!

The returning designer celebrities were Anya Ayoung-Chee (still not wearing sleeves, I noticed!), Mila Hermanovski, Laura, Irina Shabayeva, Kenley Collins (still loud and bossy as ever!), April Johnston (now with hot pink hair), and Valerie Mayen (who?).

The guest judge was… Oh wait, I forgot because her critique went like this ‘I don’t like that. The Emmy’s? Never been! I wore something like that once. Oooh, shiny!’ Can’t they get any people actually involved in the fashion business to participate in this show or has it truly lost all credibility?

Last night on Project Runway the designers hit up Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC to blow their wads on sugary-sweets. And sadly it wasn’t an all you can eat buffet following the shopping trip – nope, it was the unconventional materials challenge! Our designer friends were tasked with making an entire outfit made from candy in about six minutes!

Fire up your glue guns, put your sugar rush to use, and start… uhhh…weaving Twizzlers! The guest judge was Dylan Lauren, owner of Dylan’s Candy Bar and daughter of legendary polo shirt hawker designer Ralph Lauren. Why wasn’t he the guest judge? Oh, Michael Kors probably hates him or something.

Dylan’s critique went like this: ‘I like candy. This had candy on it. Where’s the candy? Oh, candy!’ Please get useful guest judges.

Last night was the premiere of Project Runway, Season 10 and since nobody cares about anything but the clothes, Reality Tea is providing you a snap-judgement photocap. C’mon you know that’s how you watch the show, too!

The Challenge: Take a garment that defines you as a designer and make a companion piece for an over-the-top Times Square Project Runway Promotion fashion show and have it judged by wacktastic former Sex And The City stylist, Patricia Fields and guest judge Lauren Graham (aka mute drone with no fashion pedigree).

Also supplying commentary, but no actual critique is Michael Kors (once innovative American sportswear designer – now PR sound-bite drone), Nina Garcia (once important and relevant fashion magazine editor), and Heidi Klum of the crotch short minis and crisp German accent.

So, that was a bust wasn’t it? Ok, let’s trash discuss some looks!

Finale Time! Project Runway has finally come to an end. And I have to say; I may seriously be done with this series following last night’s results. I won’t give anymore away for those who have not yet watched (or Googled).

It’s two-days before fashion week and everyone is in a tizzy! Tim Gunn greets the designers in the workroom and announces he is furious at the crack-smocking judges’ critiques of the mini collections. He offers the real final three props and calls the judges out on their cray-cray; although did I hear him say he loved Eyebrows’ Grecian catsuit?! I think he just said that to be nice and to point out clearly and emphatically that little miss Anya had no business taking her messy used “intimate tapes” sheets to fashion week. In fact he told her as much! That’s the spirit, Tim. The old Tim we know and love! Tim announces a surprise gift! An additional $500 to spend at Piperline Mood to buy whatever they want!

Anya is over-whelmed by her lack of a collection and starts to panic. Viktor announces he will be re-making his fabulous grey gown?! At Mood, Viktor demonstrates he has been spending too much time with Eyebrows as he gravitates towards sheer – and not just sheer, cheetah print sheer!

Well, we finally made it! It’s almost the end and despite there being something like 8 decoy collections, the finalist for this season of Project Runway were chosen! Are you relieved or is that just me?

The designers meet Heidi Klum on the runway and she explains all four designers will design a collection. But only three of them will be moving forward to compete at fashion week. They will have 5 weeks and $9k to create a 10-look collection. Tim Gunn – intellectual and compassionate sounding board – will be checking in on the designers mid-way through to provide feedback.

All the contestants engage in the tried and true emotional breakdown, crying, ‘I can’t believe I made it tears’ and they’re off! Viktor and Eyebrows McSequins hop on a subway and zoom off home. I always love it when the contestants walk or cab it home from Parsons at the end. Remember in season 3 when Laura Bennett with all her fabulous vintage LV luggage and her Manolos just walked right out of the studio and cruised the couple blocks home? Classic.

Well we are almost to the end of the road with the most ridiculous season of Project Runway ever as the final five remain! This challenge determined which designers will be designing a collection for fashion week and who will be going home to wallow in despair while STILL designing a collection for fashion week, albeit forfeiting the $100,000 grand and the Piperlime endorsement.

Eyebrows McSequins decides to start his day off right with a steaming hot cup of bitch café as he rants about how Anya doesn’t deserve to be here and calling her out on her inability to thread a sewing needle. While I don’t disagree, no one is calling McSequins out on his complete inability to edit. Oh wait…

HBIC Heidi Klum informs the designers they will be meeting the delightful, yet clearly over it, Tim Gunn on Governors Island for the details on the challenge. There, Tim informs the designers that Governors Island will serve as inspiration for a thee-look mini collection that features a variety of looks (i.e. can’t be three cocktail dresses). The designers are given 1 hour, a map, and a golf cart (is this Amazing Race or PR?) to explore the island and sketch. I kept waiting for a golf cart accident, but it didn’t happen.

Can we all have a moment for Eyebrows McSequins Palm Beach on Crack Bermuda shorts? Oooohhh…lordy. That print!
