Runway Recap: You Got Your Fashion In My Peanut Butter

Finally! THIS is what we Runway-ers live for, when the designers have to create outfits with wacky materials. Hurrah – to the Hershey's store we go! Five minutes and thousands of peanut butter cups and licorice sticks later, we have some tasty confectionary treats. Wait, no we don't — the only one who actually used the candy was Jillian. Even so, the creations were definitely the first really interesting ones of the season.
Rami's dress was a colorful hip fashion-forward Judy Jetson. Chris, who was saved from oblivion last time, came through with a masterful, wearable, and quirky cocktail dress which looked spectacular on his model. I personally was not a fan of Jillian's dress, but the workmanship was without parallel and I give her triple points for using the Twizzlers instead of the pillow cop-outs that everyone else used. Our winner was a toss-up between Rami and Chris this week.

Then we come to the bottom of the barrel, and we could not have agreed more with the judges (and, of course, Tim, who is always, perpetually 100% right): Sweet P and Elisa. Elisa's dress looked sort of like her very first one this season: like the model fell into a trash can and uprighted herself covered in refuse (and, per Christian, foil swimmies on her arms).

If Sweet P had focused a bit more, she could have done better instead of cycling through not one, not two, but three dresses in one episode and ending up with one that looked like it took an hour to put together. This is not her first time in the bottom two; she's got to shape up if she means to stick around.

It was definitely Elisa's time to go.  She had worn out her welcome — I will miss her spit and spirituality, but not her dumpster-chic fashions.
