Spoilers for last night’s Project Runway coming up after the jump:
After a couple of ultra-gimmicky challenges (drag queens, auto parts) PR got back to basics, with a straightforward contest to design for Diane von Furstenberg. (Though there was a weird “secret agent” angle, and room for an American Express product placement.) Does anyone out there doubt that we were looking at our final three last night, with Korto, Leanne and Kenley coming out on top last night? (OK, I might swap Terri for Kenley, but that’s debatable.) As for the elimination, while I’ll miss Stella, it was probably her time. There’s a big pile of leather back home here in New York with her name on it.
By the way, it’s been so long since I watched my screener of last night’s Top Design debut that I scarcely remember what I thought of it, except that: the contestants and challenges seemed more involving than last years, but I don’t think India Hicks added anything to the show as the new host. Did anyone out there catch it?
