Project Runway Episode 9 Recapcomments (2) October 16th, 2009
Create an extravagant stage look for singer Christina Aguilera, in the style of designer Bob Mackie. This was the challenge offered to the designers this week. With 2 days to work and $300 for materials, the designers were drowning in feathers and sequins after their trip to Mood.
All of the designers seemed to crack under the stress and exhaustion of designing for the show this week. None of the garments really wowed the judges, and Gordana should feel lucky that she received immunity (the last of the season) with her win last week. Everyone has been playing it safe instead of going for the big win.
Many of the designers tried for a big reveal this week and failed miserably. The best line of the night belongs to Tim (as always) speaking to Christopher about his design, "If you’re going to have a reveal it should be super-sexy-slut." Tim also brought Nicolas down a peg, by declaring his sense of déjà vu as he found himself looking at a duplicate of the ice queen gown from week 6. With only 3 more challenges to go, this season looks to be ending with a whimper rather than a bang.
