Project Runway S12: Episode 7

Shoes First!

After a shocking elimination, the designers realize they need to step it up to impress the judges. For the challenge, they do some "sole-searching" in the Marie Claire shoe closet and create a look based solely on the shoe they picked. Marie Claire's Editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider and Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco serve as guest judges.






Top 3





Bottom 3





Discuss your hits and misses.

ETA: Corrected the top 3. Thanks for the heads up guys.

bananasnrum 31st-Aug-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
its hideous on film. does nothing for the shoes.
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:33 am (UTC)
his model always looks miserable. she knows that she's wearing ugly stuff
lloydsgurl 31st-Aug-2013 06:36 am (UTC)
i can't tell if braden's recent implosion is related to having a different model or not

designer works with ya -- top look
no ya -- bottom

For an old lady...
die2nitelive4ev 31st-Aug-2013 10:05 am (UTC)
I love it except for that top, the top comes from a bridesmaids dress. He saved it with the 50's styling but then that is my shtick
xcollsangelx 31st-Aug-2013 12:38 pm (UTC)
Bridesmaid dress city.

silentxstrom 31st-Aug-2013 01:38 pm (UTC)
his model always looks so tortured.
lloydsgurl 31st-Aug-2013 06:20 am (UTC)
happy to see miranda go because her insistence on calling it


was driving me C R A Z Y
lloydsgurl 31st-Aug-2013 06:21 am (UTC)

wut is that jacket
jessashoutbaby 31st-Aug-2013 10:44 am (UTC)
Me too. The entire thing was just so ugly.
pippopippo 31st-Aug-2013 06:29 am (UTC)
Literal interpretation of the shoes; hideous.
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:30 am (UTC)
lol fug
littlehayzay 31st-Aug-2013 06:33 am (UTC)
wtf is that yellow/neon bit? it looks like she robbed the costume department from Bruno
fallingstarryuu 31st-Aug-2013 07:20 am (UTC)
how is that designer STILL here she literally produced a pee dress last week
ilovestarburst 31st-Aug-2013 10:52 am (UTC)
I knooow. Dreadful.
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
ia about Kate's top, like, wtf is going on there??? it looks like her model's boobs blew up and the shirt is about to pop
imitosis777 31st-Aug-2013 08:18 am (UTC)
i thought kate was on the bottom for sure for that top
what a fucking mess
eomir 31st-Aug-2013 11:43 am (UTC)
I know! How was Kate not in the bottom for the ill fitting top? The whole look was awful.
lloydsgurl 31st-Aug-2013 06:21 am (UTC)
alexandria is honestly my least favorite
i don't know what it is about her
but i don't like it
lovedhurtlost 31st-Aug-2013 06:54 am (UTC)
bigbranch 31st-Aug-2013 12:00 pm (UTC)
she's so cold and snide. i mean i kinda like her, because i'm pretty much like that too, but still. homegirl acts like a snooty robot
xtinkerbellax 31st-Aug-2013 06:25 am (UTC)
This season is...not good. I still don't know half their names and I saw a guy in this episode that i can't remember seeing before.
jsilver20 31st-Aug-2013 07:38 am (UTC)
ia, I actually turned this episode off because I was falling asleep, I'll try to watch it again later, and I too spotted a new contestant a couple episodes back, I feel like they are setting Kate up to win
xtinkerbellax 31st-Aug-2013 06:27 am (UTC)
And why is Ken so angry?
lloydsgurl 31st-Aug-2013 06:28 am (UTC)
tim gunn gets to the bottom of it next week
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
cam_a 31st-Aug-2013 06:50 am (UTC)
Yeah Tim is supposed to pull him aside next week to talk to him about it.

I rarely blow up on people, as in, I think I've actually only legit blown up on someone once in my life, but I swear, if I had to deal with Ken and his rotten attitude and they way he speaks to people, I would blow a gasket. He just pushes ALL of my buttons.

neemah 31st-Aug-2013 02:00 pm (UTC)
I think Ken is angry because he's out of his element. He's an ok designer but there are others on the show who have better ideas and construction skills. I think he's self aware enough to know that he's going to get chopped very soon. Probably after Karen or if Justin makes another mess.
littlehayzay 31st-Aug-2013 06:32 am (UTC)
These are all fucking horrendous...except maybe for Justin's. I haven't watched this season at all, how is it?
xtinkerbellax 31st-Aug-2013 06:34 am (UTC)
Unmemorable is the best way I'd describe it tbh. I didn't like how in the first 5 episodes there were three unconventional materials challenges.
ilovestarburst 31st-Aug-2013 10:54 am (UTC)
I cringe so hard at all of the product placement, I feel sorry for Tim Gunn having to peddle crap in such a way. It's just awkward.
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:39 am (UTC)
I'm only watching it because I've missed the show terribly (skipped a couple of seasons). it's pretty unremarkable so far.
pikapika217 31st-Aug-2013 06:43 am (UTC)
I like it personally but I haven't really watched a single episode from the beginning (I always forget it on until right before they head to the runway). I can't judge it in respect to the other lifetime seasons, as I haven't really watched since it left Bravo, but this one has me engaged even if it is in a slightly delayed reaction way.

irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:51 am (UTC)
I have to disagree with some of the responses. I think this group is much better than last seasons. And I think the photos don't give credit to some of these looks.
lipstiq 31st-Aug-2013 07:53 am (UTC)
hardly anyone this season has talent.
bigbranch 31st-Aug-2013 12:02 pm (UTC)
i think it's decent for a lifetime season
silentxstrom 31st-Aug-2013 01:48 pm (UTC)
boring. the show only focuses on fake drama played up by the cast. the designers aren't that great either.
ptr28 31st-Aug-2013 06:32 am (UTC)
ilu Jeremy but good god that look is hideous omfg
bananasnrum 31st-Aug-2013 06:32 am (UTC)
I hate this season. Helen's was so obviously the best. and its a shame Miranda got eliminated for perfectly executed pants.
pikapika217 31st-Aug-2013 06:41 am (UTC)
IKR - Miranda should've went home the first week!
bananasnrum 31st-Aug-2013 06:53 am (UTC)
pikapika217 31st-Aug-2013 06:40 am (UTC)
man, Ken was BITTERRRRR! I actually really liked Jeremy's but could understand why they didn't and I'm glad Dom was safe as I think she's stronger overall than that dress. Miranda should've left the first week but I'll take her leaving this one and I'm sorry - Alex's wasn't all that special. I'm glad Helen won tho - she seems really sweet.

But YES for Micheal's return this coming week. Zac is just NOT CUTTING IT

Edited at 2013-08-31 06:41 am (UTC)
irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:46 am (UTC)
Agreed on Zac! He's had a couple of funny moments, i.e the Russian guy conflict on stage, but I miss Michael like crazy!
irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:42 am (UTC)
Loved Justins and Kates. If Bradon hadn't won twice and been relatively consistent, he would of gone home. His was the worst imo, but Miranda hasn't done anything special so she was the more obvious choice.
pikapika217 31st-Aug-2013 06:44 am (UTC)
I was surprised it wasn't another pencil skirt TBQH so at least it was different?
irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:48 am (UTC)
Kates right? I like her more now than last season. But when Justins came around the corner I was all, "WORK IT GURL"
_folieadeux 31st-Aug-2013 11:54 am (UTC)
I'm not a fan of Kate much but lord jesus, at least she didn't go matchy matchy like everyone else.
lovedhurtlost 31st-Aug-2013 06:52 am (UTC)
Kate wasn't in the top 3. It was Ken.

Alexadria's was so damn ugly. Idc. Idc.

Helen's was so damn boring. I'm so confused by the praise.

Ken's was okay. I like him, btw. I don't think he's as bad as everyone is making him seem. He just tells it like it is. I don't see the problem.

I liked Justin's, tbh. He should've been I the top.

Glad Miranda finally left.

Lol @ Jeremy being in the bottom.

Dom's was interesting.

Karen's face annoys me. She's an uglier Drew Barrymore.

irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:57 am (UTC)
100% agree with everything here. Helens was boring and plain and I lol'd at Karen. That mess of hair and color does not do her any favors. And wtf at Alexandria's? Zzzzzz
la_guillotine 31st-Aug-2013 07:03 am (UTC)
yesss Helen's was boring as hell!!

Ken's a little...surly? But he makes me laugh with his bitchy remarks. I just don't like it when he (or anyone else) goes off on someone unnecessarily.
aurorab0realis 31st-Aug-2013 01:25 pm (UTC)
Ia with this, except I did love Helen's. It's very chic, simple and gorgeous and I like that her aesthetic isn't so american like PR people typically are (of course, they're mostly am people). I think her and Kate are the most talented of the bunch for sure and I'll be surprised if either of them don't win.

I looove Helen but she cracks easily under pressure and was crap at time management but she's being more humble and easy-going now.
irishtigerlily 31st-Aug-2013 06:54 am (UTC)
Also, it was Ken, not Kate who made Top 3. He was pissed Helen won over his.
galagooo 31st-Aug-2013 06:59 am (UTC)
The winning one is so ugly though.
