The challenge is to create a single look that tells the audience in a very brief glance who the Marie Claire woman is. I can tell you in one sentence: A woman who cannot find Vogue, Elle, InStyle, or Glamour at the newsstand.

The new 90 minute format means I will have to summarize in places to keep from staying up all night -- my stamina, which has been eroding on a par with Mickey Rourke's face since Season 6, is no match for a Supersized ProjRun).

I'm probably going to start calling this season Project Runway: Eight is Enough as soon as the novelty has worn off after ten minutes or two cocktails, whichever comes first. But I love it, you see, so I can't let it go.

Papa Gunn got on the tramp, denied Emilio hugs, and bonded with Filipinos. Jay and Mila engaged in a runway walk-off to the death, like in Zoolander but with less espionage and fewer wedgies.

The morning of the interview I was dismayed to find that I had nothing clean in my closet except for a pair of black jeans and an Old Navy tee-shirt. I hoped the finalists wouldn't judge my garments as harshly as I've judged theirs.

I thought both Jay and Mila made Fashion Week-worthy collections, but I have to admit that I was surprised by the outcome. I'm interested to see how the final episode plays out -- more interested than last year, anyway.

I'm just going to be up front about something: This is going to be a shorter recap than usual. This is going to be like the Tom Cruise of recaps; it's going to wear lifts and stand on boxes to look taller.

I watch Project Runway most weeks at my friends' house. We usually don't start watching until 10:15 so we can skip commercials. But this week, for some reason, the DVR didn't record. Crisis!

Previously, the gang designed Marie Claire cover looks for Heidi in a total navel-gazer of an episode. Anthony won for his snappy blue number, while Anna got auf'ed.

From where I'm sitting I can see the side of Michael Kors' face. He is, of course, wearing sunglasses, even though it's as dim as Heidi Montag in here.

The designers splashed big hot Campbell's soup messes all over women recovering from major surgery and it was a Very Special Episode, albeit one that unfortunately resulted in terrible garments.

It's morning at the Atlas apartments. A sleepy Anna gazes longingly at Ping's empty bed as if thinking "Oh the fun we had, draping each other in burlap and rolling down Madison Avenue!"

This season you can't swing a Brother sewing machine without hitting one of Anthony William's delicious quips, delivered in his sweet and sassy Alabama twang. I checked in with the fan favorite on the heels of his near-elimination.

By the time I finished scarfing chorizo empanadas and draining the dregs of my melted margarita, it was almost time for Project Runway. And this, kids, is why you should never drink and recap.

Previously on: Emilio won immunity, Janeane cried a lot, and Jesus, tired of the whole water-to-wine trick, turned a leather trunk into a chocolate bar, barely sparing him the axe.

Some of us may put our pants on one leg at a time, but others risk a punishment of forty lashes if they dare do so. Lubna Ahmed Al Hussein knew the latter could be her fate, but she put her pants on anyway.

This week, Heidi presents the designer challenge: create a form-fitting, "pregnancy-chic" outfit. As opposed to, I guess, something that would make her look dumpy and whale-sized. In case anyone was confused.
