Project Runway Season 12, Episode 7: "Shoes First!"
Time for shoe puns!
The designers had to "step it up" this week.
Some "sole searching" was in order for the remaining challengers.
One designer had a look that was a "shoe-in" to win, while another designer was "booted."
And finally, instead of a recap, consider this a "retread":
On the latest Project Runway episode, the designers travelled to the Marie Claire magazine offices. There, they met editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider and Tim Gunn in the magazine's vast shoe closet. The designers had to come up with looks inspired by the shoes, and each selected a pair from the closet after correctly answering a fashion quiz question.
(Example question: Christian Louboutin based his famous red soles on an employee's what?
Answer: Nail polish.)
Miranda was the last to select her shoes - she was unable to answer a single question correctly. She voiced a wish that the questions had been about "wallpaper or photography." Wallpaper??
Helen Castillo wowed the judges with a minimalist cape and dress. The fit and cut looked impeccable. Helen's shoes were black booties with studded toes.
Miranda Levy created a short white jacket, sleeveless white blouse with polka dots, and high-waisted, pegged plaid pants to go with her red patent smoking slippers. Oddly, the model was styled to look sort of like the late singer Amy Winehouse.
