Project Runway All Stars 4/28/16--"Prince of Prints" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: the usual “avant-garde” challenge asked the designers to be inspired by artwork. As usual no one was really avant-garde but I'm no longer surprised by it. Sam decided to make his dress about gay marriage, and it was horrible. But unlike how it usually goes, when someone doesn't follow directions and tries to make a dress out of their lives for pity points, Sam was not eliminated. Because of course. Ken sort of called him out, but not that well because he was trying to take the tack of “I just don't think you're working to your potential”. Ken himself won by making a dramatic dress with a huge collar that acted like blinders. Emily was sent home for making something boring. Also for not having as much drama as Sam, I'm pretty sure.

TAR 28 Recap Leg 9, 4-22-16

Welcome to Leg 9! Last time, on Ooo, Girl, Sand!, 6 teams made their way to Dubai. Sheri immediately got lost when she had to drive herself. Everyone else managed to deal with camels in various ways, but not faster than Brodie and Kurt, who managed to get to the Roadblock first, stumping Brodie and causing the use of the Express Pass. (It is important to note that Brodie has done exactly three roadblocks: find an emerald in mud, hang glide in the snow, and this one, which he Express Passed. When Brodie did the other two, Tyler and Korey won the leg. Just saying.) In the meantime, Sheri and Cole came in last, but were saved by the last non-elimination of the season. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

Project Runway All Stars 4/21/16--"State of the Art" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: the designers were asked to make an outfit for a pre-existing clothing line. Said clothing line is “sophisticated with a badass edge” and also it was a summer look. This didn't go as well as I assume they thought it would. It's hard to make a summer look that includes the usual “badass” indicators like leather and dark colors. Anyway, Emily won by making a sleeveless vest with an asymmetrical lapel (in black) and knee length culottes. Asha was eliminated for a mostly boring sheath dress with leather in dark red which was not summer. (click for more)

TAR 28 Recap Leg 8, 4-15-16

Welcome to Leg 8! Last time, on Make Sure You Grab Your Bag Before Racing, 7 teams traveled to Tbilisi, Georgia. There was much failing at the Detour, but they Ashley pulled ahead in a dancing Roadblock, only to be navigated to the wrong location for the Pit Stop. Zach and Rachel managed to place first, while Scott accidentally stole Tyler’s bag, setting up a foot race to the mat, ultimately lost by Scott and Blair, who were eliminated. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

Project Runway All Stars 4/14/16--"Rebel With a Cause" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: Alyssa pretended her sports-branded clothing line was “athleisurewear” as opposed to “women's logo items”. Anyway, the designers were supposed to design an outfit that could go from a sporting event to a nice dinner. Ken got very frustrated in the middle of the challenge and...just walked out. He said he didn't want to go off on anyone so he left. The day of the runway he returned and nothing was ever said, nor was he penalized in any way. I mean, whatever, I guess. At the least, good for him to have seen what his reputation was and trying to not be a jerk on TV again. Sam was once again far too cocky for his skill level, as he made a cocktail dress. Kini won, because a long jacket with one side in all black allows for branding and logos? The bottom three was Sam, Ken, and Layana, so of course Layana was eliminated because even though she made some nice leggings, she is not drama. (click for more)

TAR 28 Recap Leg 7, 4-8-16

Welcome to Leg 7! Last time, on No One Expects the Cleaning Guy!, 7 teams traveled from France to Yerevan, Armenia. Rooster Teeth and Ultimate made bread, while other teams made rugs, and left Tyler and Korey in the dust. In the meantime, Sheri and Cole somehow surged to second, but lost ground when Sheri couldn’t change the oil. Brodie and Kurt get first again, and an Express Pass, and Sheri and Cole are not eliminated and handed their next clue in order to keep racing. Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway All Stars 4/7/16--"A Touch of Style" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: everyone had to make outfits based on fairy tale characters. “Finding Neverland” was brought up again because the producers of this show are involved in that show and it's all dumb but whatever. Everyone continues to hate Sam, and Sam also continues to be overly cocky when he's only being kept around for drama. Asha won the challenge, by making a top with a long peplum that was like Rapunzel's braid somehow? Sam was finally in the bottom but Alexander made a really boring old gown for Cinderella and was sent home. (click for more)

TAR 28 Recap Leg 6, 4-1-16

Welcome to Leg 6! Last time, on Running in the Snow in France Is Totally Doable, 8 teams visited the French Alps, and promptly freaked out. Team Rooster Teeth chose to build tents instead of climbing a mountain and failed miserably, while Brodie’s inability to run in the snow allowed Tyler and Korey to take first place. Erin and Joslyn, who also could not run in the snow, were eliminated. Who will be eliminated. . . next?
