Project Runway – Destination Designs! Irena’s Aspen-Inspired Design Warms The Judges’ Hearts; Nicolas’ Greecian Creation Is Less Than Greek

Ladies & gents of the blogosphere, your Project Runway recap! (…as promised!)

On the last episode of Project Runway, the remaining 7 designers were challenged to create a distinctive look inspired by one of several famous locales, ranging from Palm Springs to Aspen.

Our favorite person (insert sarcasm here) Irena Shabayeva took the win yet again for a luxurious camel colored three-piece ‘snow bunny’ ensemble, inspired by the ski culture of Aspen.

Irena - Aspen

(But sidebar–in all seriousness–any way you slice it, Irena has been consistently turning out fabulous garments ever since her first win this season. And it seems the good people at Lifetime are making the creative choice to use some strategic editing in order to dumb down her ‘witch factor’ a couple notches. To which we say ‘Yay, Lifetime!’ Because in terms of likeability, the girl needs all the help she can get, especially since it looks like we’re going to be seeing more of her in the coming weeks!)

Unfortunately for Nicolas Putvinski, it looked like Nic took a wrong turn on the way to Greece, with a markedly un-Greek gray trouser and an accompanying long-sleeved top.

Nicolas - Greece

Nicolas signed off with an unexpected parting shot, saying ‘This is SO the last you’ve heard of me. I’m totally taking a break and moving to London, or Paris, or Japan.’ Just a suggestion Nicolas–you might want to swing by Greece in your travels and check out what the Gods are wearing these days!

On a side note, the still-loveable Christopher Straub seems to have more lives than a two-headed cat, appearing in the bottom two and surviving for the fourth time this season.
