This episode was so miserably boring that I seriously considered that I might just be over the show in general. That I maybe should hand the reviewing over to somebody else because, after six seasons, I just didn't like Project Runway anymore. But, no, I still watch old episodes and really enjoy it. This season is just bad. Sorry, Lifetime, I was ready to jump on board, and you left me to drown in a sea of boredom.
So next I considered writing this week's recap entirely as an ode to the guest judge, Milla Jovovich, who is beautiful and talented to be sure, but who also seems smart, funny and cool to boot. But I will refrain.
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER

So, to the runway, I guess. Even Heidi's snarky banter couldn't relieve the boredom of this episode. Solely Althea was safe, with her shorts and blouse look for St. Tropez. Logan's simple separates inspired by Hollywood landed him in the bottom, along with Nicholas who made grey menswear pants that were totally inappropriate for Greece. Also in the bottom was Christopher, who's Sante Fe look was lame. In the top was Carol Hannah, who had a great green print for her Palm Beach maxi dress, but even the pretty detailing work she did looked just like something Uli Herzner would have given us seasons ago. Gordana, despite her lack of confidence, landed in the top with a great handmade necklace and simple grey dress for her upscale New York look. And Irina rounded out the top again with her Aspen look that was complex but also a little retro.
Irina won, again, even though I think her look was decidedly dated. And Nicholas went home, even though his outfit was perfectly tailored. I think it might have been Christopher's time to go. He really hasn't done anything interesting in the past few weeks. Oh well.
So, here's the big question: can this season be salvaged? It has been unfathomably mediocre so far. However, the best part of this week's episode were the scenes from next week… maybe that means there are good things in store? There are only a few episodes left! Was the season always going to be a failure because it aired so late after filming? Will future seasons bounce back? I'm not so sure I'll be watching them. How about you– does Project Runway still have you hooked?
Here are your memorable quotes:
He'll be like, I wanna like it but I just don't! – Christopher imitating Michael
I'm definitely surprised Christopher is still here. I mean, his dress
looks like something like an Amish woman would wear. – Irina
Nicholas kind of went off in his own world on this one. – Logan
Definitely this girl is a character. She doesn't ski. It's like a
little girl playing the grand dame of Aspen and it's cool, I like it. –
But, quite simply, I don't think that anyone who has ever thought about the American West would get that from this look. – MK
I would live in that dress. Love it. At home glamour. – Milla
That's a pinstripe in Palm Beach, that print. Literally. Trust me. – MK about Carol Hannah's pattern
I think you got the wrong Greece! I think you got Grease the movie with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John! – MK
They're clothes. They're not fashion. – MK on Logan's separates
Unwearable. For me, unwearable. – Heidi on Christopher
I was surprised that someone who could make a belt that's so cool would
make the rest of that outfit so, kind of, a fad. – Milla on Christopher
It was just ugly. – Heidi on Christopher
My big question is, you walked into Mood and you were like, Oh! grey menswear fabric, Oh that's what's talking to me! – MK
Nothing says Greece more than grey menswear! – Milla
Well listen, if this was called Project I Didn't Mind It, then he would win. – Milla on Logan
Jeans and a t-shirt doesn't cut it. – Milla
I don't know how you guys do it every week! – Milla, emotional about sending Nicholas home. Ugh, she's nice. She could maybe save the season?
Until next week…
– Hayley Wells
