Project Runway Week 12 Recapcomments (14) November 6th, 2009
"I want Nina Garcia's stilettos to blow right off of her feet and shoot across the runway." - Tim Gunn
This week marked the last challenge of the season before we get into the two part season finale. I don't blame Tim for wishing the designers would step up and blow us all away this week. This has not been my favorite season of Project Runway. The contestants have been a little bland, without any strong personalities coming forward, the designs have been boring and safe, and the rotating cast of judges has not helped matters much either. The move to Los Angeles has also been a loss for the show. The personalities of Project Runway are what keep people coming back year after year. Without judges like Nina Garcia and Michael Kors each week, there has been a loss of cohesive personality. They have moved too far away from the characters we love, New York City included.
They have tried to incorporate the city of L.A. into the challenges throughout the season, but it does not have the same atmosphere that NYC brought to the show. This week The J. Paul Getty Center was used for inspiration. Designers were allowed to explore The Getty with their models and chose anything that stuck them as inspiring. The sky was the limit.
Do you agree with the final three or did the judges make the wrong call? Check out the designs below and let me know in the comments.
