A Trip to Red Carpet Land: Images from this week's Episode 12 Season 14 "Project Runway"
This week on Lifetime's Season 14 "Project Runway", there are only four designers left in the show and they are very close to going to NY Fashion Week to show their Finale Collections...
Red Heidi: Heidi unveils the "Best Western Red Carpet Challenge"--Season 14 "Project Runway Episode 12
The Challenge this week was to design a Red Carpet look inspired by the "Land of Glamour": Los Angeles. This was also the Best Western Challenge...
LA-LA Land: Once in L.A., the designers headed to their hotel--their home for the next 1 1/2 days while in Los Angeles
Best Western Plus Sunset Plaza Hotel. The hotel is iconic and situated in the heart of the Sunset Strip.
"Best Western Rewards" NIGHTS (!) to be used at any Best Western Hotel and Resort worldwide. Lord have mercy! Yeah...this was Candice's reaction:
Shut The Front Door!!! Designer Candice Cuoco reacts to the "Best Western Rewards" prize for the winner--Season 14 "Project Runway" Episode 12
After their time at the Best Western Plus Sunset Plaza, Tim and the designers were off to a multi-million dollar Hollywood Hills home...
Nice View: Tim Gun and Season 14 Top Four designers--Season 14 "Project Runway" Episode 12
Keltie Knight and Tim Gunn: The reason for this Hollywood Hills location was to supposedly get the designers "inspired for designing for the Red Carpet. The view was very nice but I think they should have, instead, had a visit with a Red Carpet L.A.-based designer such as Monique Lhuillier or at least, gone to a red carpet premiere. #JustSaying. Also, I had issues with Knight's statements that "this is not the time to play it safe". Has she actually been to a recent ACADEMY AWARDS!!!??? It's ALL about SAFE! And Fashion BOOOOOORING.
Mood L.A.: The designer got to go to Mood Los Angeles--Season 14 "Project Runway" Episode 12
FIDM: While in Southern California--and during their 1 1/2 days--the designers got to create their Red Carpet designs at my Alma Mater, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM. In case you're wondering, this was the same place we shot "Project Runway: Under the Gunn".
Cutting Edmond: Designer Edmond Newton cuts, and cuts...and cuts, into his multicolored sequin fabric--Season 14 "Project Runway" Episode 12
From OK to Oh No: Edmond's design went from a long column gown to a cape-sleeved, fishtail hemmed mini dress--Season 14 "Project Runway" Episode 12
Mamma Mia: The Musical
Edmond was OUT!
Or Is He???? (Hello! Tim Save!)
Here's my RECAP for this week's episode:
Season 14, Episode 12: A Trip to the Land of Glam
And then there were four! Four designers are left on this season of “Project Runway” and this week they took a trip to sunny Los Angeles for the Best Western Red Carpet Challenge. Their designs ranged from safe elegance to glam goddess and even stretched into "Mamma Mia" musical theater territory. And of course, there was that cliffhanger-like ending (To save or not to save?). We’re getting closer to NY Fashion Week, so there’s no need to dilly-dally…time to recap.
The episode begins with a shot of a red carpet-lined runway stage. The designers are there as Heidi calls out to Tim to “bring the tickets.” Immediately, she announces that for their next challenge the designers will be heading to the “land of glam. Where the lights shine and the stars shine brighter." Los Angeles! Tim hands the designers their “Project Runway” super economy class tickets and tells them their challenge: to design a look for the red carpet and use L.A. as their inspiration. He tells them that they will be designing as well as constructing their creations in Los Angeles. The segment ends with Ashley saying she is excited to be thinking “outside of the box.” No crop tops or pleated circle skirts, I hope.
The designers arrive in Los Angeles and check in to the Italian villa inspired Best Western Plus Sunset Plaza Hotel...
