Project Runway Season 6, Episode 3: Only At The Beach! Memorable Quotes from Last Night's Episode.

Project_Runway_Episode 3_2009_Judging

This week’s challenge seemed so simple. Create a fun and fashionable surfwear look with a perfect hairstyle to match. Oh wait, and do it in teams of two. Oh, and make a second avant garde look. Maybe it’s not going to be so simple.

With the stress of the challenge, this episode was definitely the most dramatic yet. Qristyl and Epperson‘s quiet fighting was clearly causing a communication breakdown. Mitchell picked Ra’mon to carry him through the challenge and seemed to not be taking anything seriously. New favorites emerged– Carol Hannah handled a model foul-up incredibly smoothly and didn’t let it affect her work or her partner. Gordana totally stood up her for partner’s vision on the runway and remained cool under fire. Sadly, Logan disappeared for the entire episode! After all the drama of Ra’mon and Mitchell, we could have used a zen-injection of Logan and Christopher for good measure.

To the runway! Max Azria picks up the slack for the missing Michael Kors, and California girl Rachel Bilson becomes the next celeb to grace the panel. The hair took a total backseat to the clothes, even though it was supposed be a focus. After the models walk, Irina and Johnny‘s beachy-and-woven looks and Ra’mon and Mitchell’s “seaweed and waves” looks end up on top. I think some viewers will be surprised that Shirin and Carol Hannah or Logan and Christopher didn’t make it into the top two; their looks were definitely in the running for the top to me. Irina really helped Johnny out with both looks, even after gracefully being the last designer chosen! But ultimately, Ra’mon and Mitchell’s blue and electric  green looks really did it for the judges. It comes out that Mitchell only worked on the bathing suit that you couldn’t even see, and the judges worshipped Ra’mon’s last-minute look of green neoprene and blue dye. Ra’mon took home the win, immunity, a bunch of compliments, and the knowledge that he can save his own ass if he needs to!


And now, the bottom… Qristyl and Epperson tore each other up and didn’t even attempt to defend their looks. Gordana stood up for Nicholas‘s vision, and Nicholas admitted that he perhaps needed to tone it down a bit. It almost sounded, at the end, like the judges would have liked to put Gordana and Nicholas in the top– conceptually what they did worked, it just needed some tweaking. But who went home from these two teams? No one! Because the judges sent home Mitchell for doing… absolutely nothing. Auf wiedersehen, Mitch.
