Project Runway: Andy and Christopher
Andy seems like a very sweet guy, but we’re ready to declare this the most colorful cast this show’s had in years. He needs to step it up in the drama department. Keep it simple. Vomit on camera or something. This seems to be the year of the Dramatic Physical Reaction, so he’d fit right in. These people aren’t fooling around. A simple crying jag isn’t going to do it anymore. Fainting or wailing from a couch like an opera diva or spectacular runway meltdowns are the order of the day here. It’s like a soap opera with judges at the end.
We’ll give him credit for one thing: it’s one of the least of the worst, if that’s any consolation. By the way, these entries are, as best as we can determine, how it shook out in terms of who took credit for what design.
Christopher, cute though he may be, also needs to step it up in the personality sweepstakes. He’s lagging far behind. For him, we suggest an accusation of some sort. Perhaps someone “stole” his lucky scissors or defaced a picture of his puppy. Or perhaps he can find an issue of Vogue stashed under a competitor’s bed. Something with a little Alexis-like plotting to it. That should do it.
Again, the idea of “luxe” seems to have weirdly intersected with business wear. You could argue that it’s not out of the question, since the other design point they chose was menswear-inspired looks, but we tend to think “luxe” counteracts any tendency to interpret it that way.
