Previously on Project Runway All Stars: Season 3, Episode 6

A.K.A. Simpsonized

Previously on Project Runway, Marge Simpson informed the designers that they would be designing a cocktail dress that Marge could wear on a special dinner date for Homer. The only rule was that the designers could not use the color green. The looks were judged by guest judges Abigail Breslin and alice + olivia founder and designer Stacey Bendet and the winning look was to be illustrated and worn by Marge Simpson in a future episode. Lets take a look at the designs: 

Safe

While Viktor created a very edgy, Viktor-y dress, it was hard to imagine Marge Simpson wearing his look out to dinner with Homer. His look was rightfully safe this week.

Korto knew how to dress a mom on a night out with her husband because she is a mom herself. The judges liked her black sequins cocktail dress with sheer back panels and I thought it would surely score the win. But the judges didn't think this dress was exciting enough and Korto was just safe.

The judges really love Elena this season and this was no exception. The judges loved the construction of the jacket and they loved the gown, but they didn't necessarily love them together (I thought it looked like everything else that Elena has done this season and in the past). Surprisingly, Elena was just safe this week.

In the workroom, Jeffrey called Irina's dress a "giant purple nighty", but it did move beautify on the runway. On the runway, Stacy thought Irina's dress was the most creative and Alyssa complimented the color. Although this wasn't my favorite look, Irina scored her first win of the season.

I wanted to applaud Christopher for being the only designer who chose to put Marge Simpson in a print. While I liked his fabric choice, the designers were underwhelmed by the simple, strapless silhouette and he ended up on the bottom. But, in the end Christopher was safe.

Seth Aaron ended up draping five potential dresses in the workroom, but none of them were great. Zanna even had a talk with him in the workroom to discourage him from using a polka-dot fabric and remind him that he was designing a dress for a middle-ages woman with blue hair and yellow skin, but Seth Aaron continued to struggle and he ran out of time and threw down a drapey dress to make it work. The judges could tell that he hadn't put a lot of time into this look and knew that he could do better. Seth Aaron was safe this week.

Jeffrey's dress was just not on the same level as the other designers this week. The shimmery purple fabric looked cheap and although Stacy thought the wide-lapeled gown looked very "Boardwalk Empire," it was not very "Marge Simpson". After spending several weeks on the bottom, Jeffrey was finally out.
