Project Runway ‘Movie Genre Challenge’: Science Fiction Double Feature – Last Week’s Almost-Loser Nicolas Putvinski is This Week’s Victor; Solid Competitor Ra’mon Coleman Goes Home in Shocker Ending

If you just started watching this season, you may not know that this is the New York-based series’ first season filming on the west coast–specifically in Los Angeles. So in a geographically appropriate turn, the challenge this week was to create a look and a story for a character in a given movie genre, ranging from ‘Film Noir’ to ‘Western’.

After almost going home last week, Nicolas Putvinksi (who designed for the genre ‘Science Fiction’) redeemed himself with a stunning, glistening ‘Ice Queen’–one of the three sister queens who reside on Orion’s Belt, trapped forever in a frozen crypt when her sisters discover her plans to take over the universe.

Former contender Ra’mon Coleman (who also designed for the ‘Science Fiction’ genre) created a look for a reptilian alien princess, coming to Earth to indulge her insatiable hunger for men. Coleman created an avante garde, deconstructed,  high-necked dress after scrapping a green body suit two hours before the designers’ time was up. Although the judges found merit in Coleman’s back story and creativity in his design–and had admitedly been impressed by his work in previous challenges–they sent him home in favor of Louise Black, whose black 1920’s/1940’s fusion flapper dress they had called a “snoozefest”. Black’s work had never before been singled out on the show, neither in a positive light nor a negative one.

Subplots included a labored ‘romance’ between Logan Neitzel and Carol Hannah Whitfield (she called him ‘hot’, he called her ‘fun to have around’). Also, Louise pricked her finger.
