This week on Project Runway, Heidi decided to mix up the teams by dividing up the contestants into pairs. This was a welcome change because this gave an opportunity for the designers to show off more of their individualized skills. This week the pairs were asked to design 2 looks for country singer, Miranda Lambert- a performance look and a red carpet look.
Amanda/ Benjamin both needed to get top scores this week to stay in the game and succeeded greatly. I thought Amanda's look had great movement with the jersey and although Benjamin's dress was simply designed, it was beautiful (even though I didn't get the fringe on the boob thing). I thought these were sure to be Miranda's picks and was shocked to see them both just safe.
Tu/ Kate were eager to have the chance to work together since they were previously on opposing teams. Tu initially wanted to make Miranda Lambert into Lady Gaga by exaggerating her hips, but luckily he took Tim Gunn's advice and reduced it. I quite liked Kate's red leather gown with spike accents and might have put them in the top spot.
Samantha/ Daniel took a stumble with this challenge. Samantha had immunity for this challenge, but wanted to show off a looped fabric technique with her performance outfit, which ultimately made the outfit look cheap. Daniel chose expensive fabrics and also tried some new techniques by creating a ruffle textured bodice from shiny leather and by fraying his hemline. Both looks were very disappointing and I was surprised Daniel didn't get the "Auf Wiedersehen".
