Project Runway – INC Challenge: Irena Shabayeva Wins (Again); Louise Black Sings “The Blues”

For those of you who haven’t been watching Project Runway since the dawn of time (not to brag, but…I have), every season there is a challenge that requires competitors to design a look for a mainstream clothing brand. The prize? The winning garment will be manufactured and sold by said mainstream clothing brand. The win for the this challenge is understandably coveted, so it is always an event when this challenge inevitably rolls around again.

This time, the challenge was to design two looks for INC, a fashion label exclusive to Macy’s department stores. The catch? The designers once again had to work in teams, and, for some unknown reason, the looks absolutely had to be designed entirely in shades of blue.

Irena Shabayeva (who was paired with Gordana Gehlhausen) took her second win with a flowing striped dress and a romantic skirt and blouse set.

Alright, Irena…so the judges might like you now. But you better stop saying all those nasty things about the other contestants’ designs…remember, the cast villain never wins on Project Runway!

Louise Black–who was paired with last week’s winner Nicolas Putvinski and, contrary to popular opinion was not eliminated after the last challenge–was ultimately given the axe for creating two dresses with ruffles and…well, not much else.

However, perhaps the biggest scandal of last night’s episode was famous American designer and beloved veteran panel judge Michael Kors bringing crowd favorite Christopher Straub to tears with witty remarks about his satiny teal bubble dress looking like a ‘disco pumpkin’.
