It Pays To Be The Mean Girl On “Project Runway”
Did you watch last night’s season finale of “Project Runway“? Yeah, I didn’t think so. I’ve been putting off writing about it all day because, well, it was kind of boring. With Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina competing, it seemed pretty clear that too-cool-for-school Irina was going to take the crown, despite maybe having knocked off her T-shirt from New York Magazine The preview for the episode tried to make it sound interesting by amping up a minor freak-out moment that Tim Gunn had backstage, worrying why everyone wasn’t lined up to get the show started on time. Carol Hannah dealt with her stomach bug. Irina half-accused Althea of stealing one of her ideas. Althea rolled her eyes. As the three women showed their collections, there were definitely some nice things, but, honestly, the only real highlight was seeing Jaslene from “America’s Next Top Model” stomping her bad self down the runway. In the end, Irina won. And it was touching seeing her Eastern European dad, who she’s said multiple times doesn’t think that a woman can make it as a fashion designer, get teary over her success. But all I can say is, I hope next season they figure out how to wake this sleepy series up.
