On Garde! Season 4, Episode 8

The Challenge: Models? Real Models! Their hair was funky, which in the fashion industry means: inspiration! Avant-Garde (experimental, innovative, Elle magazine). Got it? Good. The Designers: They had to pair up. I applauded when Christian and Chris were matched. Team Fierce! Every one was reluctant to be captain. Jillian didn't have a choice, because her partner Victorya had immunity. Was it just me or was Rami PMSing? Seriously. Was he not there for the Tiki Barber menswear challenge? Sweet P can't make pants! Even if she says she can, she can't. However, she does know how to make an adorable dress we'll get to that later. Kit and Ricky were a team. This instantly worried me. Kit has always been persistent with her garments. She has never been scored low, and yet, she had never won a challenge either. Ricky has scored low and somehow beat Kevin last week (yes, I'm still bitter). The Tim Gunn Surprise: "Designers, please gather around. I have another surprise for you" At this point, the Avant-garde designs were about 25% made, but that leaves four models with nothing to do. So, another challenge is thrown into the mix. They had to make another "ready-to-wear" day look that complimented the Avant-garde design. Designers: Jillian was freaking out and Victorya (who has no personality) felt "horror and nausea". They were strapped for time, but the black jacket with plaid lining was looking amazing, so I didn't worry. Rami made Sweet P cry. Even their model seemed scared of him for a second. Let's face it, if Rami had been paired with Jillian he wouldn't have questioned a thing she did. I think Sweet P was the last person he wanted as a partner (with good reason). Christian taught us all, even the models, how to work the runway. I love him. Kit's Avant-garde dress was very different from the others. It should have been steamed before execution and the ready-to-wear dress looked cheap. The floral print looked like a couch you'd see at a six year old's tea party. The Decision: I want the ready-to-wear dress Jillian made. Why wasn't she happy with it? I thought it was so adorable and chic. It could have been worn during the day or out for a night on the town. Did anyone else gasp when the jacket was taken off? I think the judges were curious if they had finished the back of the shirt and hell yes they did! I loved the entire look! Rami and Kit - team captains - were both in hot water. Rami draped again. Nina said that she wants to see more from him. He's not impressing anyone anymore. Oh, he also "threw Sweet P under the bus". Sorry, but the dress Sweet P made was beautiful. It was pretty and hip. I loved it. Kit and Ricky flopped. Michael Kors said it perfectly when he mentioned Scarlet making a couture dress out of drapes, and they just took the sheets. Ricky cried, but the tears are genuine. He didn't want to lose and I'm sure he didn't want Kit to go, but someone had to be auf'd. Winner: Team Fierce!!! Nina wasn't going to let anything else in her magazine! That Avant-garde dress was impeccable. That was Project Runway! (Side Note: This blog will not always be posted in a timely fashion. Please, try to be patient.) show less
