Mondo Guerra's Take on 'Project Runway': If the Shoe Fits

The "All Stars" champion reveals his thoughts about the designer's creations, which were inspired by every woman's favorite accessory.

Heidi Klum sent the designers on a "sole-searching" mission to the Marie Claire fashion closet to create runway looks inspired by every woman's favorite accessory -- SHOES!

A couple of designers learned how it felt to wear the shoe on the other foot, flip-flopping from the top to the bottom. And while three little black dresses were shoe-ins for the high scores, two competitors went toe-to-toe in a battle of the tartan pants.

In the Workroom

It was new day for Justin who, after receiving the Tim Gunn save last week, was ready to work harder than ever to keep his spot in the competition. The other designers seemed to agree with the save, but quickly realized that Tim's decision meant there was no more safety net when it came to elimination.

A pop quiz at the Marie Claire offices tested the designers' fashion knowledge and determined the order they got to choose their shoes. Then after a quick sketch session, it was off to Mood.

Alexander was seeing double when he noticed that both he and Miranda had both selected red plaid for pants. But they dug in their heels with their designs, determined to execute each of their visions anyway.

Back at Parsons, Bradon's hand-stitched draping technique had Tim worried, so he had to come up with a hurried plan B to resolve his look. Ken was in the same boat after Tim's critique that his design looked dated.

The Best and the Worst

Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider and The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco rounded out the judges' panel this week.

Alexandria, Helen and Ken's little black dresses took the top spots, leaving Miranda, Jeremy and Bradon waiting for the other shoe to drop.
