Allons-y, darlings! What better place to watch Project Runway than in Paris, non?
Ladurée Le Bar, Paris
The underlighting won’t be flattering and the seats don’t look all that comfy, but we’ll be fabulous and that’s what matters most.
And we’re going to need that touch of Paris fabulous to get through this one, we fear. It’s another “promote one of Heidi’s side projects” challenges. This time, it’s a return to her line for New Balance and the designers are all asked to create apparel to wear with the new “Heidi Klum for New Balance lifestyle sneaker.” Last season’s New Balance challenge yielded unfabulous results and a a strange hybrid of cocktail dresses made out of sweatsuit material, so we don’t have high hopes that we’re going to see a lot of chic tonight. But who knows? Maybe this lot will surprise us.

But wook at Tim in his widdle jeans and sneakers! How cute is that? Both spotless, bien sûr. Heidi looks like a walking bleach accident.
Last year’s New Balance challenge brought the drama, with Ivy going full-on take-no-prisoners against Michael Costello. The tears and the accusations flew, darlings!
More tears and accusations! What is it about New Balance that makes clothing designers go crazy? Is the material treated with some sort of drug that causes hysteria and paranoia?
We will not be tweeting tonight’s episode, nor will we be joining you in the T LOunge, minions. Instead we’ll be conquering the medium of satellite radio by appearing on The Derek and Romaine Show on Sirius OutQ Channel 108 tonight at 8 PM eastern. You can listen online (with a free trial signup) here and we encourage all precious unborn fawns to call in to the show at 866-305-6887 just to tell us how much you love us. And by “encourage” we mean “order.”
Here’s your Lounge Question of the Week:
Since we’ve been saying all week it’s tough to predict the finalists this season, here’s your chance to prove us wrong. Who will be the Final Five designers?
