Don’t count the Motor City out on “Project Runway” because — spoiler alert! — Charketa Glover is back.
The Detroit contestant was eliminated last week from Lifetime’s fashion design competition after she made an unexpected misstep with her canary-yellow wedding reception dress.
But on Thursday night’s episode, a distressed Tim Gunn made an announcement to the remaining designers. “Something has been weighing very heavily on me,” he told them. And that something was Glover’s departure.
So, thanks to Gunn’s belated use of his once-per-season save option, Glover was brought back in time to compete in this week’s challenge. Contestants had to make a gala-worthy outfit to complement jewelry by Chopard.
Glover’s creation, a Kim Kardashian-esque gown with body-hugging curves, got her through safely to next week.
That’s how it is on “Runway.” One day, you’re out. The next day, you’re giving Detroit a fighting chance at fashion cred all over again.
