Project Runway 7: Preview of Episode 9 'Takin' It to the Streets'
It's a battle on the streets tonight on Project Runway, and as we've learned, anything goes since the streets have no rules.  The contestants are paired up once again and none of them enjoys the experience, but they have to suck it up if they want to win the challenge.

Meet the Season 7 Designers

On "Takin' It to the Streets' tonight, scandal ensues in the workroom as the designers face their toughest dilemma so far: each other.  Hardly anyone among them is getting along and to make things worse there's one judge missing from the panel.

As the contestants are pitted against one another in teams, drama and controversy kicks off once more on Project Runway.  Everyone's accusing Emilio of hatching a scheme that may be detrimental to the workplace environment, if his craziness isn't enough to cause tension already.

But the black sheep of the room (literally too, as she's decked in ebony most of the time) is apparently Maya.  Fingers are pointed towards her come runway time, and it's not because she's created a winning look.  The others have had enough of her controlling personality and have decided to let the judges in on the so-called conspiracy.

Speaking of judges, Michael Kors seems to be absent from the panel photo released by the network.  In his place sits Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa, while the other guest judge for Project Runway tonight is model and actress Molly Sims.

While Lifetime announced earlier that the original trio of judges will be around "the entire time," this absence is a bit appalling.  We do expect Michael Kors to pop up somehow.  Maybe he'll be introducing the challenge in the workroom or saying something about his own designs.  

Anyway, the altercation among the designers on "Takin' It to the Streets" also brings us to wonder if Maya's involvement here caused her absence at Bryant Park.  It's been discussed before, and we wonder if tonight's episode will reveal just what happened there.

The previews don't indicate what clothing challenge the designers will face on Project Runway tonight.  Our best guess is casual attire or fashion inspired by what they see on the streets.  You can catch the trailer below.
