Ok, so let’s talk about this episode. Warning, if you haven’t watched yet there are spoilers ahead…
Ugh, the workout wear challenge, not my favorite. For all their talk of something fashion forward there was nothing on that runway that I don’t feel like I could find in an Athleta catalog. Still it was fun to have Michael Kors back.
I do think Karen’s sad little sweatsuit deserved to lose. I know she wasn’t use to sewing stretch fabrics, but I don’t think I can remember one of her other looks standing out at all. The judges certainly went gaga for Helen’s jacket. I think Kate’s look was a much better put together outfit, but Helen’s was the most “different” item.
Can we discuss Ken for a moment? Man, is that guy wound tight. This is not the first time he has flipped out and attacked someone on the spur of the moment. I’m not sure if there is more that has been edited out, but he seems turn to cursing and threatening pretty fast. Being around someone like that in a high stress environment like Project Runway would certainly scare me.
What did you all think?
