Project Runway All Stars Season 4, Episode 12: “Some Like It Hot Dog”

Article Image

Lassie made a guest appearance on this week's episode to help present the designers with a mini challenge.

Four designers remain at the beginning of this week’s episode, meaning all, but one, will get to present their collections in the season finale.

This week’s challenge is to create a dazzling, yet timeless, red-carpet outfit in one day with a $500 budget. Soon after the designers get their fabric and return to the workroom, however, Isaac Mizrahi comes in to introduce a guest who has been a Hollywood icon for decades. In comes Lassie. In addition to working on their red-carpet designs, the designers are each assigned a dog and asked to create a piece of canine couture for his/her model. A mini runway show takes place in the middle of the workroom, and Michelle is deemed the winner. As a result, she is given the chance to be a guest designer for Lassie’s canine couture collection.

For the main runway show, author and Nasty Gal founder, Sophia Amoruso joins the judging panel. Sonjia and Dmitry are in the top for making dramatic and memorable gowns. In fact, Alyssa confesses that Dmitry’s look might be the best design she has ever seen on the All Stars runway. Although Helen and Michelle receive impressive reviews as well, one of them will be eliminated.

Before choosing the eliminated designer, the judges request to see one final look from the bottom two candidates. In just one hour, Helen and Michelle are asked to deconstruct at least three (out of six) failed looks from previously eliminated designers to create a winning garment.

Here’s what they came up with:

While they both received very positive feedback, the judges ultimately decided that only Helen should move on to the finale.

    While I am quite disappointed with Michelle this season, I really have no interest in seeing a collection from Helen. I don't know about anyone else but I am not looking for funeral attire every time I go out in public and Helen's " Adams Family" sensibility doesn't appeal to me at all. I thought Goth was out a long time ago. I am tired of her whining and crying and just the total wet blanket that is Helen, that's what she should call her line, " wet blanket".
    I will say however that the bridesmaid dress they were looking for last week finally showed up.....Helen did it!
    Michelle has gotten so weird in her designing, I am not sure she even has anything to offer anymore. I saw her website with her "grunge" clothing and I wouldn't have purchased a thing. I also saw her Dallas runway show and it was more of the same....grunge. So, we have grunge and goth and had to choose between the two.
    I think Dmitry always makes pretty things and Sonjia at least tries. Dmitry should win because he is the best designer period, but they will probably give the win to Sonjia just to keep us all guessing. It IS a "reality" show after all and we all know there is nothing real about reality shows.
