There is good news, even better news, and, fantastic news after last night's episode of Project Runway.
The good news, of course, is that once again, Michael Knight wowed them in one of the more interesting challenges thus far—creating an outfit for an international jet-setter, which turned out to be, "design yourself an outfit." The added bonus was the surprise trip to fabulous and gay-friendly Paris.
Michael's concept was fun, hip and wearable. He choose to update cargo pants—weren't we just discussing those?—with seersucker, best friend to many a businessman and traveling gay across the world. Michael Kors confirmed that on the runway: "I absolutely looooove seersucker. Those pants are marvelous."
However, it is possible that Kors' attention may have been focused elsewhere:
As usual, Michael thought his story through. "I can see myself in the Hamptons, chilling with P. Diddy. Or St. Tropez." Maybe he really is "straight"—he certainly didn't Fire Island or Ibiza.
Knight did not win. It would have been his third. However, he placed second, once again confirming what we've said all along: He is very talented. Four Four and Mod Fab will probably have more on rockstar wannabe Jeffrey's ensemble and Angela's dismissal. We liked Angela, talented but inconsistent, quirky and fun. Adieu.
Moving along. The even better news was watching Michael "teach" Kayne how to walk on the runway. That short scene on the terrace was one of the highlights of the show, especially when Michael explained his take on turns: "Umm, I don't turn because I don't think that it's cool."
Not that anything could have helped Kayne on the runway with his latest fashion disaster. Kayne's design aesthetic is so small-town and atrocious. Nina Garcia called it "Kayne meets Elvis." which was just a little too kind.
Finally, the fantastic news. No need to ask Michael "boxers or briefs"? That's because he wears ... boxer briefs.
