It’s down to the final six designers this week on Project Runway All Stars Season 3! They helicopter off to the QVC studios in Westchester, Pennsylvania where Lisa Robertson, QVC program host, fills them in on their next challenge. It’s all about red carpet glamour; the designers will be creating gowns that will be worn by Lisa at QVC’s red carpet event for the Oscars in Los Angeles. The winner will also have a version of the dress available for purchase on QVC.com! The group pretends they are television hosts and sketch in judge (and QVC host) Isaac Mizrahi’s studio. He pops in and gives them advice and words of encouragement.
I guess the Project Runway producers thought the show needed even more drama, because in the middle of working, Viktor told his emotional secret- he has been HIV positive for seven years. Elena and Seth Aaron are the close friends he tells on the show. Later, during Zanna Roberts Rassi’s critique, she warns the designers that anyone could go home with their designs because they aren’t really special. Ouch! Irina’s dress then rips during the model fitting and Korto decides to make another dress because she hates the way the first one looks. Ahh!
Sitting in for Georgina this week on the judging panel is Project Runway All Stars season one winner Mondo Guerra. The guest judges are QVC host Lisa Robertson, who the designers met earlier, and Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss. Irina’s dress tears again on the runway- yikes!
Seth Aaron and Viktor are safe, and the winner is between Christopher and Korto. The next Project Runway QVC designer is… Korto! Lisa will wear her look, and QVC will sell it online. Elena and Irina are on the bottom, which is a shame because they are both wonderful designers. Sadly, Irina is going home.
Nina Garcia will be on next week’s episode, so get ready for her smart, sassy remarks!
