An Episode of Eleventy-Billion "Firsts"

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:53am GMT

The moment I realized that Maya was packing it in early, the first thing that came to mind was Chris March's season of "Runway" where he, too — and first! — was sent packing and was resurrected from elimination purgatory just in time for the next episode's judging. And then slept a lot.

Who better to ask what he thought about this debacle of an episode than Chris March himself? While setting him up for his weekly screening of the episode here at the Lifetime offices, I decided to be that girl. That girl who dares to ask what its like to have someone coin a verb after you, thanks to Anthony's triumphant return to the competition. That is, "He was Chris Marched!"

Chris shared tales of fellow contestants who conjured up conspiracy theories on a grassy knoll–type level to rationalize it all. But when one talented designer suddenly withdraws from a competition in a sudden and shocking way, isn't that the only thing you can do to make sense out of nonsense? (Get his take on the episode over on Chris March's "Project Runway" blog.)

So, Anthony fans, rejoice! And be exceedingly glad! For our Beyonc-loving boy from the South has returned to create more fabulous fashions and, with any luck, more rambling monologues about Uncle Leroy. Aside from the designer musical chairs happening in the workroom, the models were facing their very own set of surprises. DKNY finally lured Seth Aaron's model, Valeria, away from the competition, so our best girl, Cerri, is back. I was anticipating an uncomfortable glance or two thrown across the room between her and Jonathan after the "I defended you on the runway when everyone ganged up on you, and you seriously didn't pick me?!" offensive of 2010, but there was no fighting Irish to be seen. Damn. I was looking forward to a fisticuffs first!

Seeing Heidi in the workroom took me back to — and apologies to Nina for being "referential" — Season 2's lingerie challenge, where Daniel Franco got all weird on her while he was pitching his "lovemaking lace" collection idea, except this was a lot less awkward and a lot more yardage. It was nice to see her be the client and see the designs on the dress form. Poor [name] practically sabotaged any chance he had by starting on his 54th dress of the night in the 11th hour after Heidi's feedback left him questioning his concept back at design number one.

In the end — and, if you're keeping score, the 39th "first" of the episode and, uh, I ran out of paper for Season 7 — two winners were named for this challenge. Although I'm not sure of the semantics of this truly being a first, since Emilio and Seth Aaron both won their team challenge, but I'll live.

Oh, and if you're playing our Fantasy Game, you ranked up some serious points tonight. Serious.


Thank Chris March for Meryl Streep's Oscar Gown

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 3:40pm GMT

If you've been thinking what I've been thinking lately ("Damn, Meryl Streep has been looking good this award season!"), you're probably also wondering who to thank for that. Look no further than "Project Runway"'s very own Chris March.

Chris designed Meryl's dresses for the Golden Globes and the Oscars (both pictured above). Congrats on creating a red carpet sensation — twice!
