Project Runway Australia, Arena, 8.30pm

THERE are just six designers left now that the villainously mustachioed Savva has been sent packing. Bundled into product-placement cars, they're taken to a grand old Melbourne mansion that Jamie thinks is a nursing home. He's concerned that this week's challenge will be to make clothes for old people, but he needn't have worried - it's to make high-school formal dresses for teenage girls. As always, some gorgeous designs end up on the runway and Alex Perry continues to rock super-tight jackets with popped collars. For those of us not among the fashion cognoscenti, however, the judges' thinking can be a bit perplexing. What's with the praise they heap upon Tristan's dress? From a distance, it looks as if his client is wearing a grey tank top under a costume-party toga. Still, Megan Gale, Peter Morrissey and Claudia Navone are the pros, and I wear T-shirts that are nearly as old as the models. Besides, it wouldn't be half as much fun if you couldn't argue about the dresses at home.

PETER Maddison heads to Byron Bay, where Max and Mariella are spending $2.5 million on a three-storey house with an ocean view.
