After a week-long break, Bravo's 'Project Runway' returned with a bang. With fashion icon Billy Porter as the guest judge, the designers were split into pairs to create a single avant-garde look highlighting the faux-fur detailing. Whenever the designers have to work in pairs you already know that there will be plenty of drama and tears, and it was no different on the recently aired episode.

Since Kristina Kharlashkina won the previous challenge and had the immunity she was given the opportunity to pick one of her fellow designers to partner up with to create an avant-garde masterpiece. Kristina immediately seized the opportunity to partner up with 'Project Runway Latin America' winner Shantall Lacayo. The two ladies were super excited about their partnership and were looking forward to creating a fierce outfit. Unfortunately, once they got to brainstorming their ideas and sketching the design, everything began going downhill. Kristina was hell-bent on her idea of designing an outfit that looked like a flower, so she picked up a pink fabric. The duo now had to incorporate the leopard-printed fur they picked with Kristina's flower design.

Needless to say, the end product was a far cry from avant-garde and ended up looking like quilt mattress, thanks to Kristina quilting the entire pink fabric and making a matching top and skirt with it. Although Shantall wasn't entirely pleased with Kristina's vision, she just played along and worked on using the fur to create a long coat that could be worn over the dress. When the duo presented their design on the runway, the judges weren't impressed at all. They put both Kristina and Shantall in the bottom two teams and one of the designers would be at the risk of elimination. Since Kristina had immunity she managed to stay safe from getting eliminated. Unfortunately for Shantall, the judges decided to send her home.

Just as Shantall was preparing herself to leave, the show's mentor- Christian Siriano stepped in and saved the day by announcing that he was using his Siriano Save to keep Shantall in the competition. Just like Shantall, fans too were beyond happy with Christian decision to use his save on Shantall. Many fans took to Twitter to praise the designer for saving Shantall from the 'unfair elimination'. A fan tweeted, "Thank you, Christian! That was a super unfair elimination #ProjectRunway." Another fan wrote, "THANK GOD FOR @CSiriano !!!!! I was about to throw my TV out the window!!! #ProjectRunway." "#ProjectRunway Christian did the right thing because it was not the correct decision. I would have used it to save any of the three tonight - and I am not a fan of one of them.," commented a fan.
