Previously on Project Runway: Season 10, Episode 6

aka. the L'orial Paris hair challenge.

Previously on Project Runway, the designers were asked to do a makeover (including an new outfit)  for a real client's friend on a $150 budget. Ven sure cranked up the drama this week (and I lost a whole lot of respect for him this week) after he whined and complained about his "plus sized" client and even drove her to tears. If you can't design clothes for everyone, why design clothes at all! On the runway, the top three was a boys club as the ladies appeared to struggle with this challenge.

Gunnar got along fabulously with his client and it showed. He listened to what she wanted and aspired to make her feel like a princess. You should have seen the way she shimmied down the runway! Classic!

Dimitry's dress was impeccably made as was to be expected. He selected a good update for the hair, but I thought his dress was a tad boring for an already demure client. I would have liked to have seen him take her more out of her comfort zone.

Fabio truly understood what his edgy client was looking for- a little more edge in a dress that wasn't too girly. I loved this outfit this dress (and I totally want to steal it from her) and the judges loved it too and crowned Fabio as the winner this week.

Alicia made a feminine outfit! And it's not awful or confusing! It still looks like something that could be picked up at Forever 21 or H&M, but at least the client was happy.

This was not Christopher's best work this week. I like the fabric choice, but it also looks retail. And I'm pretty sure the model and I were in agreement that the jacket was unnecessary.

Melissa covered up her poor dress with a giant shawl. Maybe it was one of the best looks, maybe it was one of the worst, but we'll never know because all we saw was shawl.

Elena stayed away from color and giant shoulder's and surprised s all by giving her client a cute, day to night outfit.

Sonjia struggled with the proportions of her outfit. She attempted to mimic the twisting she'd used in the previous challenge on a petite, athletic framed woman and it just didn't work out. I'm glad she wasn't sent home for this look.

In my opinion, even thought I've liked Ven's work during this competition so far and I didn't mind his look in this challenge, I wouldn't have minded if Ven was sent home this week just based on his outright rudeness to the client. He took a day that was supposed to be fun and uplifting and made his client feel like shit by referring to her as a "plus-sized," complaining that she's at least a size 14, telling her that "black is slimming" and complaining to the other contestants and to the camera about her size. News flash to Ven: The average size for a woman in the U.S is 14. If you can't make clothes for the average woman, why is Ven in the industry!? He really pissed me off this week.
Ven
Nathan was asked to create an outfit for his client that she could wear while singing pop/hip-hop songs on stage. I'm not sure why the judges chose to send Nathan home the week. Yes, the fabric choices could have been better and it does look a little cheap, but Nathan delivered what his client asked for and she was pleased. Sometimes the judges are crazy.
