'Project Runway' - 'Run for Cover' Recap Season 7, Episode 5

With five challenges down, 'Project Runway' claims to have the biggest challenge ever. This season continues to sweep the previous season under the floor as if the last season was a hiccup. This week the contestants had to design an outfit for the cover of the April edition Marie Claire, which would be modeled by Heidi Klum. They had one day and $150.

Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine, had a lot of specification for the dresses: the eye-catching design had to be above the waist, there will be text so there can't be black fabric or loud patterns, and they have to take into account that the April edition will have a spring-like feeling to it. Along with that, the contestants also had to consider a color palate that would match Heidi.

We get an interesting definition of what one day of work is like during this season. In one quick shot after the contestants came back from Mood, Tim left the work room at 2:50. That means the contestants had nine hours to work on a dress. With the stress levels high, most people were quiet except for Seth Aaron, who still hasn't impressed me and is only mugging for the camera. Also, with Anna being so new to the fashion world, I don't understand why she even attempted a three piece dress when the bottom half may have been cut off of the photo.
