PROJECT RUNWAY, EPISODE 2: MICHAEL'S TAKE

02—01—13

Last night on Project Runway, the designers hit Susan Sarandon's ping-pong hot spot, SPiN New York. Charged with creating new uniforms for the staff, with considerations like cocktail serving and incessant ball fetching in mind, they served up modern drop-crotch pants, the return of the "skort" and more than one moment of tailoring gone wrong. Michael recaps the standout runway looks—and proves that striking the balance between playful and professional is no easy task.

STANLEY: SECOND RUNNER-UP "Stanley did an amazing job. The hardest thing to do is to find a cool new way to do basics. I loved the short-sleeve sweatshirt idea. The drop-crotch trouser looked cool—but not costumey—and he handled the logo perfectly. You could sell the sweatshirts to people that did not work at SPiN, likewise the pants."

CINDY & BENJAMIN: SECOND LOSERS "Cindy and Benjamin definitely did not work well together. Cindy's tailored jacket was well-made, but totally wrong for this situation, and Benjamin's shorts could be picked up in any store for $20. This outfit reminded me of mullet fashion: career on the top, party on the bottom—and neither one that successful."
