Project Runway Season 10 Series Finale

Even though I am very disappointed in this season, I am still holding on to see if either Christopher or Dmitry wins season 10 of Project Runway.

Christopher is a complainer.  Within the first 20 minutes, ill I have heard is bitch and moan.

Some of the designers are making more pieces because of the harsh criticism from the judges.  The designers get a chance to go back to Mood with a budget of 300 dollars.
Fabio’s collection is growing on me since he thought about everything after meeting with the judges.  Fabio and Dmitry are finished.  Melissa and Christopher are running around like chickens with their heads chopped off.

The special guest judge is Jennifer Hudson.
I love when Tim gets a lil bit misty eyed.

Christopher goes first and I must admit I do love the leather pieces in his collection and the print pieces.   The final dress should have been worked out a little bit better.  The model could hardly walk. 

Melissa is next she also had some very well worked leather pieces. One could really tell that this collection belongs to her.  That white dress should have been fixed at the bottom, Another issue with the model not being able to walk because of some technical difficulties.

Dmitry starts off with an amazing cut out dress.  It looks like the dress is in pieces and magically staying in place on her.   Dmitry’s models walk kinda funny, well the first two did
Fabio rounds out the foursome and after seeing his collection as a whole, I understand it more, very light and flowy, slightly futuristic.  There are pieces around the neck and collar that to me look plastic and cheap.

And the winner is… Dmitry!

If you didn’t know, there is a season 2 of Project Runway All Stars.  I have a feeling this will be ten times better than season 10 of Project Runway.

Project Runway Season 10 Episode 13

Just like you, I am still in shock over Sonjia not making it to the final four.  With the final four, that’s not even final.  In boring Project Runway tradition, only three of the four designers are going to fashion week.  In order to make it to the final three, the designers have to show three looks and then the judges will narrow it down from there.  How many seasons has this happened before?

The designers get nine thousand dollars and five weeks to create the collection.  Isn’t this a much shorter time than usual?
Of course this is the episode where Tim goes to the designers’ homes and sees what they created.  First person that Tim goes and visits is Christopher in Massapequa, NY.    Let me just add that Tim looks ever so dashing.  Christopher has ton of work done.  Christopher inspiration comes from an x-ray from his mother after she was in an accident.  I LOVE IT.  It’s actually a print he created and it’s amazing. My fave part of these episodes is when Tim interacts with the family.  It is great to see how he just blends and they just accept him with no qualms.
Next up is Fabio in New York City (or so I think, they never gave a location or I just missed it cause I really don’t care for him.)  They meet the family and I love Fabio’s mom and her thick Brazilian accent.  She is so stinking cute!  Fabio’s collection is Cosmic Tribalism?   I will say that I love the shapes, the draping is amazing.  The colors I could do without.  They are so pastelly and the shoes that he wants to put with them… so freaking clunky. 
Tim goes to Jersey City to see how Dmitry is doing.  Dmitry’s pieces are so structured and just simple yet amazing.  He does have a few pieces that because of color choices, it might throw you off.  Dmitry goes into his back story and Tim gets emotional and I love it!   Dmitry is so talented.  If he doesn’t make it to the final three, I would be so shocked.
Lastly, Tim goes to San Francisco to visit Melissa. Melissa shows Time this jacket which is to die for.  This has shocked me.  She has a great collection that is much unexpected from Melissa.  I think she would be a great choice to be in the final three.

The designers come back to New York City to a new work room and the critique everyone else’s work.  Christopher is so dang catty.  Tim comes in to inform the designers that tomorrow they go in front of the judges with three looks.  Melissa starts to doubt herself.  Fabio does some changes to his collection but Tim still has some hesitation about it. The judges could either love it or hate it.  Christopher doesn’t know what to show.  Dmitry isn’t going to use any other colors other than black and white which concerns Tim.
Fabio is first on the chopping block.  The judges love his collection, well Nina not so much.  Nina wants some sophistication in his collection. Dmitry is second on the block.   The only problem is with his styling, there were something’s that shouldn’t have been paired together. Heidi loves Christopher’s collection, but she wants a wow piece and calls part of it boring.  Nina thinks his collection is gonna be hoochie. HA!
Melissa is the final designer that the judges grill.  The judges feel that the collection is very “Melissa,” but it doesn’t knock them off their feet.

When the judges discuss the contestants, they GRILL them. Its hella funny.
They all go to fashion week.

Project Runway Season 10 Episode 12

Elena was kicked off of last week’s episode, further proving that they keep certain people around for ratings.   While she designed something great in the toddler’s clothing challenge, compared to everyone else’s, it was not that great.   I thought Melissa should have gone home, but that’s just me.
We are down to the final five and we are about to find out which three contestants are going to fashion week. Heidi comes out on the runway with some peach/gold mini outfit with cutout sleeves? WTF? Random, I know.

The designers are taken out to Oheka castle where Tim and consulting makeup artist for L’Oreal Paris, Billy B are waiting for them to tell them about the challenge.  There are brought to the surroundings to help them inspire for the creations.  The challenge is to create an Avant-guard look inspired by L’Oreal makeup.  The designers have two days for this challenge and determines who goes to fashion week.
Fabio’s creation makes Tim sad.
Sonjia gets the truth from Tim.  Tim feels like that she hasn’t giving 100%
Tim is questioning Christopher… and he needs too.
The overall consensus is that the work being created, they aren’t Avant-guard.
Here is what I have noticed about Project Runway… always on the next to last episode before fashion week, the designers seem to fall apart and not create the best that they can.  They seem to fall apart.
Today’s guest judge is Zoe Saldana.  All Zoe is doing is agreeing with the other judges.  BRING SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE.

This episode was boring.

When the judges started to critique the designers and their work, I fast forwarded through most of it.
Christopher is the first designer told that he is going to fashion week.  Next Dmitry and he was also the winner of this challenge.

Let me just say, I knew those two were going to fashion week.
In a shocking turn of events, Melissa is going to fashion week. *insert side eye*

This is the worst season ever.
