Runway Recap: Who Thought Wearing A Saturn Could Be So Chic?

Here's the latest from SheFinds writer Casey:

Aside from the blatant product placement for Saturn (nothing new: hello Bluefly accessory wall and Tresemme hair salon), this car parts challenge was a good one. Though very much like the grocery challenge, we were hoping the designers wouldn't all go for the easy materials. But alas, the seatbelts were all snatched up and appeared in nearly all of the creations. It was definitely less egregious than the tablecloths, though, as they have interesting sheen and texture while the tablecloths are just gingham travesties.

 
We've noticed that the editing is getting pretty slick, like they are keeping secrets from us until runway time. Up until the runway we thought Korto's design was an absolute disaster, but on the catwalk it all made sense. It was a super chic, reflective, woven coat that we would all like to buy. We were a bit rubbed by the fact that it was 100% seatbelts though.

LeAnne made a crazy structured leather minidress with frayed seatbelt fringe along the bustline and it was risky because if not constructed correctly, could make someone look like a big-hip monster. Instead it minimized the waist and looked spectacular. How in the world does something so chic come out of the brain of someone so frumpy?

There was no question that it would be Keith and Stella in the bottom two. Both had two of the three Project Runway kisses of death in their creations: boring and poorly constructed. But it was ultimately Keith who HAD to go — and by that I do not mean that he DID go (though he did, sorry for the early spoiler)… I mean there was no way he could survive after being such a baby and mouthing off to the judges for the second week in a row. And let's not forget his parting words to his model en route to the runway: "watch the breathing!" AND blaming his model for the skirt's construction issue. Nice fella. Good thing, though, because Stella is an entertaining character and we are glad she gets to stick around a while longer.
