Come Back Already, Michael Kors!

It’s nothing against you, Heidi, or guest judges Zoe Glassner and John Varvatos, but Kors and his catty comments need to come back. In its sixth episode, Project Runway moves like a speeding bullet. It never slows down for drama, or to even catch its breath.

This week, designers dove right in to their next challenge, which was to design a costume for a film based on a certain genre (shock, they’re in Los Angeles!) and create a character from that world. Compared to most of the other challenges so far, this one gave the competitors some leeway to go big and do something impressive. Bad for Epperson, who picked last, and got stuck with Western.

The only crisis in the workroom was Ra’mon’s sci-fi alien-lizard jumpsuit. Tim did predict that it could be really great, or a big hot mess. And it was such a mess that Ra’mon started over with just hours to go. The result was unanimously hated by the judges for looking homemade (a sin in PR speak). Louise joined him in the bottom two, but her biggest problem was that the judges thought the film noir dress was uninspired and a real “snoozefest.” Still, quality always trumps concept, and Ra’mon was sent packing.

There were a lot better concepts in the top, including Epperson’s Annie Get Your Gun western outfit, with a hot leather belt/holster and pretty denim ruffles. Christopher again ended up in a runner-up spot for his period piece, complete with high-neck blouse, and high-waisted bustle skirt. However, Nicolas’ sci-fi ice queen won the judges’ cold, cold hearts. And best of all, Nicolas finally found a place that his love of lace could really shine!

Ice queen was a little over the top, but lace overlay can be pretty. This Nicole Miller black lace underlayer dress ($252) has a gorgeous lace pattern, but what makes it really special is the thick lace straps that cross in the back. It looks as good from the front as from behind. Similarly, this lace overlay batwing tunic ($80) from Topshop has a great silhouette for a tunic top. And best of all, the keyhole back gives it a little sexy edge with the softness of the flutter sleeves and fabric.
