Rate the Runway: Let Me Borrow That Top

This week's Project Runway All-Stars challenged the contestants to design an outfit using the clothes off their backs. Well, actually, the backs of strangers.  They each had a budget that could be used to bribe people for their clothes and the reminder used to purchase fabric at Mood as long as the outfit cotainted 50% of the original clothing. Some designers found great pieces, especially Anthony and Mondo who both found bold statement dresses.  Others seemed to choose the first thing they saw in hopes they could figure out what to do with it in the workroom.  Jerell took an interesting approach in that he made sure to choose the tackiest outfits and things that made no sense together.  Back in the workroom, the usual antic ensued with one added factor: Kenley took the reigns on Kara's outfit.  She even went so far as to finish the pants for her! This didn't sit well with Michael Costello, cause if he isn't getting help, no one else better be.  I absolutely agree with his stance, but I just found it funny that he was the one to mention it.  This was the exact behavior that made him hated during his original season. 

Mondo took home the win this challenge.  I would say he's done better prior to this week, but he is my favorite, so I'm not going to complain.  The bottom two was Michael and Anthony.  Both were not the worst in my opinion, but that's just Project Runway.  Michael continues to defy life by surviving another week despite his unpredictability, therefore sending Anthony home. He took it all in stride, as usual, leaving with the same cheery disposition as he entered the competition with.  Jerell lucked out this week with his outfit, but I would say his days are numbered.

After the jump check out my personal scores for each of the outfits (with pictures)!

Here goes nothing...

All cards on the table, I have not worked my hardest to maintain this site.  That is all changing starting today.  What I want to express with this post is basically a promise to myself and to anyone reading this.  I am making a vow right here, right now, that I will update this site regularly with my take on pop culture.  My goal is to have weekly recaps on my favorite scripted and reality television shows. In addition to that, I would also like to do album reviews, feature new music, and introduce artists that haven't made a big name for themselves.  Basically, I want to share the things that interest me with everyone out there.  I am very passionate about pop culture and I want that to come through on here.  I hope anyone out there reading this stays tuned and comes back to see what else I have to offer.  Real Housewives of Orange County and Bethenny Ever After are starting back in a few weeks along with Survivor and the Amazing Race, so there will be a lot to talk about! Look forward to hearing your feedback!
