Runway Recap: Menage-A-Blah

The most recent installment of Project Runway fever from SheFinds reader Casey:

Ho hum, another team challenge. The designers self-selected themselves into teams of three to develop a cohesive and modern mini fashion line incorporating three horribly outdated trends (think of all those horrible trends you wore in the 70s and 80s–yes, I am talking to YOU). This week's lesson: Do not volunteer to be team captain. You cannot control these crazy designers, you will be stressed out, and you will have a 1-in-4 chance of getting the boot–ain't nothing good there.

While Jillian has a knack for fading into the background, she was able to wrangle her teammates into a win with the overalls/poodle skirt line.  It was country-chic but fit the bill: it was cohesive and modern. Shop for a similar look at Bluefly.com.

In the bottom two were Chris's team and Ricky's team. Personally, we liked Chris's and Sweet P's dresses a lot, despite the fact that they appeared to be made out of burlap.  Chris's lacked the modernism the judges were looking for and ultimately got him auf Wiedersehen-ed (perhaps he could use the potato sack to clean up his work station?).  Steven's outfit felt like something you could buy at the local department store and did nothing for us – we were bummed that Chris was sent home instead of Steven as we'd grown to like the big crying lug.

The trends Ricky's team was tasked with incorporating included underwear-as-outerwear and neon. Team squabbles and passive-aggressiveness aside, the creations were better suited for triple axels and Russian judges than the runway — maybe they fell into a time machine and were working on the Sacha Cohen challenge from Season 2?
 
The best part of the show? The previews for next week! Why is our boy Jack crying (maybe b/c the resident cryer Chris was sent home this week and someone has to)?? What's the scoop with the models?? Where is that time machine? We must get to next Wednesday stat!
