Project Runway 4 Recap: Episode 3

Marc says: Week three had the designers feverishly making an outfit for Today show correspondent and former New York Giants football star Tiki Barber for $150. Tiki showed his rebellious and gay friendly side by indicating to the group that he wasn't afraid of wearing pastels and pink. A deeply courageous statement for an NFL star. Seems like the designers this week were more overwhelmed by this challenge than a FEMA crew in a Gulf of Mexico hurricane. There was no real glam to any of this week's outfits and the whole effect was pure vanilla.

Jayne says: I SO love the fact that the only person in the bunch who knew who Tiki Barber is was the straight guy. Hell, *I* even know who Tiki Barber is. I also know that he has an identical twin brother. It would have been fun to see the designers get a little more time and a little more money to create two looks for the twins. THAT, my friends, would have been a challenge!! Unfortunately, one menswear outfit seemed to be challenge enough. And rightly so.

Jeff Says: Mmmmmm. Tiki Barber. And there is a TWIN? Barber sandwich anyone?


Marc says: A very "icy" Ginny Barber, wife of clothes-hungry Tiki, made an inspection of the outfits being worked on, probably to make sure that her hubby wouldn't end up in an off-the-shoulder gown. Ginny chose to make her Project Runway debut in a little number that made her look like a sample girl in the deli section of a Safeway supermarket.

Speaking of deli cuts, hot male models this week had most of the designers salivating hard (expect for a few hetero males in the bunch). Elisa was the only one who didn't insist on undressing her model like a Ken doll on Christmas morning, the Project Runway new age spitter actually has the heart of an Amish debutante. Gross.

Jayne says: Mmm, mmm, mmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm. That is all. (Oh, and...more men please. Kthanx!)

Jeff says: Tiki and Ginny? Where are these people from - a 60's Rat Pack cocktail party in Palm Springs? Ginny even looked the part, she was all kinds of FABU, just needed bigger hair or jewels. I cant stop laughing at their names here - maybe their kids are Dice and Maraschino.

Standouts of the week...


Marc says: I love this suit, simple and elegant. Perhaps not sassy enough for Tiki or butch enough for Madame Ginni, but overall, a well constructed outfit and a solid effort by Chris, who hopefully is over the fact Sarah Jessica Parker snubbed him last week. Hang in there Chrissy.

Jayne says: Man, that's a lot of black. Tiki likes colors. Tiki likes textures. And Chris gave him black. Lots of very well constructed black. (My god, his model!!! DEEE-LISH! )

Jeff Says: Helmut Lang

Marc says: Hmmmmm....Cary Grant in "To Catch a Thief"? Tiki would only wear this if he were reporting from a croquet match in Newport, or covering the opening ceremonies of the Gay Games.

Jayne says: So structured! So fabulously tailored! So...so...MILITARY! Right up until you get to the neckerchief. That one detail ruined all my fantasies of Steven's model instructing me to drop and give him twenty. Loved the amount of cuff showing at the bottom of the sleeves, though. Strong showing!

Jeff Says: Hollywood Playboy from 1970 driving a Mercedes Benz 280SL

And now for the vomit inducers of the week:

Marc says: Sweet P, what on earth are you doing in this competition if you can't even construct a basic shirt, actually what on earth are you doing in this industry if there is nothing even remotely fashionable about you.......wow that was nasty of me, oops. I don't see the potential. Carmen should have stayed.

Jayne says: Oh honey, good lord, NO! What Marc said. Werd.

Jeff says: Barf, hurl, blow groceries, de-lunch, nicole richie, ralph, the 3 finger diet..


Marc says: I totally disagree with this. Too safe, too Macy's. What I imagine as being chic in Des Moines.

Jayne says: Uh yeah, werd to Marc again. I thought this was too strange and out there...and not in the funky Elisa way that I'm growing to love, either!

Jeff says: I'm sorry, this was the uniform of the Castro gay-fessional in 2003. I don't even think Ben Sherman does this style anymore.

Should have won:

Marc Says: Chris's design was a little safe but was the only one that didn't stand out as being too trendy or looking like a costume relic from Les Miserables.

Jayne says: I liked Kevin's design. Homeboy made a shirt, pants, a tie, a vest AND a frikkin' pocket square!

Jeff says: KIT! Loved the cardi-blazer made of fleece. It was great and totally TV ready. Tiki would looked smokin' hot in it.


Should have gotten the boot:

Marc says: Dear Sweet P should have found herself forced into a cab by Tim this week. Carmen did sin heavily by faking a shirt under that jacket with that piece of fabric, but haven't we all done that at one point in our lives? And I swear Carmen made an effort this week to control her hair, the Bravo "good taste" censors must have intervened.

Jayne says: I'm not proud of it, but I have indeed wrapped my chestal region in a strip of fabric. It was for a dance number to "Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac in my 9th grade recital, and even then, it almost didn't work. Here's what I think: Between Ricky and his uncontrollable tear ducts, Sweet P's...umm, what the hell WAS that anyways?, and Carmen's rendition of my "Tusk" costume, the trifecta of crap was complete. I think it should have been a triple auf'ing, for no one look was better than the other. And for god's sake, would someone PLEASE get Lady Tearbox Ricky a Kleenex?!

Jeff says: Carmen, as much as I hate to say it. She was sooooo much fun to look at, great clothes, hair, accessories. Sweet P was a train wreck but at least her outfit didnt look like it came with a magic carpet.


Marc says: And finally.....this week I did find myself wanting to slap Christian. Forgive me.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Here we have learned the positive influence of the inflatable bounce house and
some details we should pay attention to, therefore, i hope everybody can treat
it correctly. A common case in point of this is the Sesame Street themed unit.

All bouncers have an inner air membrane which is another reinforcement point.
