Another one bites the dust — and by that I mean, yet another woman is eliminated on “Project Runway All Stars,” the seventh in a row out of eight eliminations thus far. Kimberly Goldson was eliminated from the show in episode seven, “A Kick in the Astro,” even though it was the first time she had even gotten a low score from the judges. She actually got high scores in “Perfect Pairings” and “Balls Out.” So did she really deserve to be sent home in this avant garde challenge? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post to let us know.
Goldson seemed to know she was in trouble early on. She said she wasn’t intimidated by the cosmic avant garde challenge even though it was outside her comfort zone. She decided to take her inspiration from neutron stars with colors of orange, yellow and gold. But as for what that design would actually be — “I’m going back and forth between ideas,” she said early on. That was day one. On day two she admitted she was still “trying to figure out what the design is going to be.”
Her resulting look ended up rather busy on the top and skimpy on the bottom. Judge Georgina Chapman thought the design was “confused.” Guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson wanted to use the dress for a “tree skirt.” RuPaul Charles was reminded of a “Quentin Tarantino villainess,” though it’s hard to tell if that was a criticism or a compliment. But even though Isaac Mizrahi said, “There are things about it I really like,” she was eliminated instead of Joshua McKinley, whose color palette reminded Mizrahi of a motel room you want to check out of and whose overall design looked to Charles like “a space queen from a porno movie.”
