Project Runway loses Chris to find its real final three

Two weeks after its final challenge, Project Runway 4 now has its final three designers: Jillian Lewis, Christian Siriano, and Rami Kashou.

Rami defeated Chris in a special runway show during which they each showed three pieces from their fashion week collections. Chris’ used real human hair and safety pins, among other things, and appeared too costumey for the judges, so they chose Rami’s Joan of Arc-inspired work instead. But they found both designers’ collections to be too dark–and neither Jillian’s nor Christian’s is much brighter, so that’ll probably be a theme on next week’s finale.

That came after Tim Gunn visited the finalists and learned, among other things, that Christian sleeps and works in the same narrow closet/hallway space, and that one of Chris’ friends watches the show not because his friend is on it, but for Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum.
