Project Runway 2013 Recap: Premiere – Season 12 Begins!

We may be seeing a lot of Heidi Klum right now with her new role as a judge on America’s Got Talent 2013, but time to see even more of her as Project Runway 2013 kicks off tonight and we have a new battle brewing to be the winner of Project Runway Season 12! Prepare yourselves, as you will see Heidi on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays because of the two shows! Project Runway 2013 is her baby and it is a changing baby, as new twists and turns will be introduced for Season 12. Watch it with us during our Project Runway 2013 Recap and see who went home on Project Runway 2013 tonight!

Project Runway 2013 - Premiere

One of the huge changes for Project Runway Season 12 is the fact that mentor Tim Gunn will be sitting in on the runway shows each week. This is a first for Tim, but he will not be able to vote on the designers. He is there to answer their questions and help them with the judging process. He will, however, be give a save to use sometime during the season! He doesn’t like who the judges sent home? Well, he can give them another chance and save them from elimination, but only once for the entire season!

Come meet the 16 new designers on Project Runway 2013 in our recap that follows!!!


Don’t want to know what happened tonight on Project Runway 2013 Recap or find out who was eliminated on Project Runway Season 12 tonight? Then don’t read ahead!


We get started with the designers meeting on the runway, but at an airport!!! In come Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn and he said this is an incredibly talented group. Only 15 of them are there and the former designer coming back to compete that was voted on by the fans is Kate Pankoke from Project Runway Season 11 and she doesn’t have to deal with the teams this time around! Justin is a deaf designer, so an interpreter is there to work with him. Season 12 has the biggest prize package ever as well.

Skydivers come falling from the sky and they help with the first challenge: they will create a look that shows their esthetic using the parachute material!!! They run to pick out the color of the parachute and Kate falls on her face, but gets the yellow she wanted.

The designers are headed to the workroom and they are getting to know each other. Helen seems like a piece of work, huh?

No more Lord & Taylor on Project Runway 2013? Tim Gunn comes in and says their new partner is belk! What happened there? They will be managing their own spending for the entire season and they each get a GObank debit card and they are in charge of their own finances. This is interesting!!!

They have two days to work on the challenge. They get started and the designers are not sure what to do with this parachute fabric! Timothy is hounding Kate for answers and wants to be her friend. They are all asking Kate questions, but she is offering answers and not holding info from them all.

Timothy then talks about protecting the forest to keep unicorns alive. WHAT?!?!? And I hate premieres of shows….learning all their names and personalities is beyond me!

We have arrived at day two on Project Runway 2013 and I have an early favorite: Jeremy, who left his husband and little kids behind to do this. Go Team Jeremy!!! Sue is sewing on the sewing machine, but she has no idea how to use it. Now Timothy doesn’t use electric and he is hoping Mood has deadstock. They all think he is full of shit. Timothy is probably going home tonight, seeming they are showing him a lot tonight!

Tim comes in for his critique and he likes Alexandria’s color blocking; he loves the translucent dress; he tells Bradon his dress is James Bondish; Timothy burned some of his fabric with a lighter and Tim loved it; Miranda is using 85% of the supplemental fabric and they were told not to; Helen is doing the same thing and she said she is stubborn and this is how she wants ti to be and Tim is concerned; he tells Kahindo that her look is messy; he thinks Sue’s dress is a knockout; Sandro only has bottoms done and Tim is worried about timing.

The models come in for their fittings and Angela is not sure about the length and wants it to be sexier and she shortens it. Timothy is putting on a narrative story with his model and has her doing some crazy things!

We are already at runway day on Project Runway 2013 and Angela thinks hers looks like a moo moo and Timothy is working on choreography with his model and Tim said he doesn’t have that much time on the runway!

Now in hair and makeup and Timothy wants no makeup on his model and no products in hair and nothing that needs to be plugged in to be used on her. The model starts crying and knows this is not fair. Remember, the models are competing too and this is not fair for her! The time runs out and Sandro has some short shorts and her private parts are hanging out!

It is time for the runway show on Project Runway 2013 and the judges tonight are Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and guest judge tonight is Kate Bosworth. Tim Gunn will also be sitting in on the runway shows! He gets the Tim Gunn Rescue and he will get one save this season for an eliminated designer. And the runway shows will be anonymous and the judges will not know whose looks are coming down the runway, which I like!

  • Sue – it looks cute and the colors are nice
  • Bradon – that is a lot of fabric, but I love the color on the model
  • Jeremy – the pants are a little too much and the shirt is boring
  • Kahindo – it is kind of plain for me, but fun colors
  • Sandro – and we have a vagina hanging out and no one even looks at the look
  • Helen – not a fan of this and it is just weird
  • Alexandria – love the dress and it looks real good, especially with being parachute fabric
  • Karen – it is way too poofy and not fitting at all
  • Timothy – the fabric looks burnt and she had no performance, so he is disappointed
  • Justin – the dress is super cite and looks like a normal dress
  • Kate – really like this dress and definitely girly, but cute
  • Angela – hot mess and it looks like a poncho
  • Alexander 0 cute dress, but it is riding up her and we don’t need any more vagina sitings tonight
  • Dom – kind of boring and jacket is overwhelming
  • Ken – cute dress, but the collar is a bit too much, but he is happy
  • Miranda – seems kind of blah and nothing special and most of the supplemental fabric

Heidi calls up Angela, Sue, Miranda, Bradon, Sandro and Timothy. The other designers are safe and these and the top and bottom designers for the week. Do you agree?

For Timothy, Nina said it was not one of her favorites. Zac said it looks like he found her in the forest. For Sue, Heidi said it looked like a runway show and Zac thought it was a good first look. For Miranda, Nina loves the style and it is now and great first impression. Kate said she would happily wear this.

For Angela, Nina said it has an odd proportion and Zac said it is not chic. For Bradon, Heidi said she really liked it and it looks expensive. Nina loves that he took this light fabric and made it dramatic. For Sandro, his model’s vagina’s is still hanging out and Zac said it looks like a slutty cat toy! Heidi said the taste is questionable.

Another new twist on Project Runway 2013 is that Tim will come back with the models and the judges can get a up-close look at the looks and Tim can give some feedback. After discussing the looks, I think Timothy will go home and Bradon will win the first challenge! What do you think?

We are back and the designers are back on the runway and here are the results:

  • Winning Designer: Bradon
  • Safe: Sue, Miranda, and Sandro
  • Bottom Two Designers: Angela and Timothy
  • Eliminated Designer: Angela

Timothy walks back in his heels and Angela is the eliminated designer on Project Runway 2013 tonight! Tim said it is too early in the season to use the save, so Angela is headed home!

Do you agree with their choices tonight on Project Runway 2013?
