A hairstyle can make or break a look, and that is exactly what the designers were faced with on this week’s episode of Project Runway. In pairs of two, assigned by Tim, they were instructed to design an avant-garde piece based on the hair of their models.
This was an opportunity for the teams to create grandiose styles that were fashion-forward. That is, on the condition that they meshed well together. The pairs consisted of: Chris and Christian, Ricky and Kit, Victorya and Jillian, and Rami and Sweet P.

The first two teams seemed to complement one another, while the other collaborations proved to be a bit rocky. Victorya and Jillian had some trouble selecting which one of them would get to be the captain (they had to actually flip for it), but they eventually pulled it together.
On the other hand, Rami and Sweet P were a tragic combination. The two had different visions, and since Rami was the captain, Sweet P didn’t get much of an opportunity to contribute her ideas.
Just when everyone started to make due with their situations, Tim Gunn decided to drop another bomb on them — create a second look. The additional design was to be a ready-to-wear piece that embodied their avant-garde vision, yet only cost $50 to produce.
This was an especially difficult task for Victorya and Jillian who were already behind. Individually they are slow workers, and when paired up together they both lagged to the point where it seemed as if they’d never finish. As for Sweet P, creating a new design was actually a positive move because Rami gave up some control and let her work on the added garment.
The runway show was the moment of truth for the designers. Even though Victorya and Jillian were behind throughout the competition, they managed to complete their look and send two attractive pieces in front of the judges. However, Chris and Christian’s designs trumped theirs. Deemed the most avant-garde, the group’s pieces were featured in a TRESume ad.
That left Ricky and Kit, along with Rami and Sweet P, in the bottom. It was obvious that Rami had full control over the group because their dress looked very similar to everything else he had done thus far this season. They loved Sweet P’s on-the-go look and felt that she was deserving of another week. Ricky was also spared because he wasn’t the team captain, leaving his partner Kit up for a possible dismissal.
The judges felt that Kit’s design just wasn’t exciting or futuristic enough and she was the latest expelled from season 4. I wouldn’t feel too bad for her though, I hear she works for E! now…not too shabby!
