Project Runway Wrap-Up: Waste Not, Want Not

Aug 23 2006 - 10:29am

Last week's theme was trash: The designers had 30 minutes in New Jersey's finest recycling plant to choose the materials for their design challenge. Between the trash collecting and the trash talking, the producers should have issued all of us one of these hot yellow ensembles.

Even Laura was dumpster diving, which is a sight I'm sure her Upper East Side girlfriends never thought they'd see.

At least she managed to pull it off in designer riding pants and matching boots.

For the trashy details, .

First, the official scorecard. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe joined Michael Kors and Nina Garcia in the judges panel. After the dust settled, Michael won his second in a row with this tinfoil gold bustier dress and plastic wrap. Literally.

Jeffrey's blue and yellow newspaper design came in a close second. Jeffrey thought "the execution was flawless," if he did say so himself, and Michael Kors thought the "ugly/beautiful aesthetic" had Jeffrey written all over it.

I love the design, but doesn't the model kinda look like she's wearing her mom's dress?

As much as we loved her, poor Alison went home because, in the immortal words of Michael Kors, her model "looks like a paper brioche." And not in a good way.

Heidi thought she looked like a "plus model" and "fat Minnie Mouse" "with funny hair on her head."

But as bad as Alison's model looked, was it really worse than this nightmare from Kayne?

What was Kayne's design inspiration? "We just need to make it look like you were just sent through the recycling plant and this is how you ended up. Like she's just been rolling around in the dumpster." Um ... success, I guess?

And now for the backstory. For whatever reason, Laura has replaced Angela as the object of everyone's hatred. It looks uncomfortable.

Jeffrey prayed on camera that she would be sent to the guillotine. Robert and Kayne played a fun dinner game called "Let's trash talk someone!"

Kayne: [Laura's] dress is cute...
Robert: It looks like a straightjacket! I was like, she's sewing for herself again...!
Kayne: She kissed me on the cheek today!
Robert: I KNOW, I was like, you're gonna get a rash; you better watch it!

And Vincent probably summed it up nicely when he told her to "put some Harry Winstons up her nose."

Angela's just happy it's not her anymore.

Laura was right. "There's some serious ugly in this room right now."
