Gothamtomato!! Stop!! I just snorted vodka up my nose!! LOL!!!!!!oh gawd. my sides hurt!
Hell hath froze over!Stella and her bridesmaid at a biker wedding is top 3???ug
green episode= sounds great!!!letting the models pick fabric= disaster!!!Wesley would have won this show. this is bull.
Tom & Lorenzo:Thanks for the T LOunge! A super innovation, even if I have to run from the room witb the television to the room with the computer.Fun to see folks' immediate reactions.Write fast and sleep well,All the best,NDC
Loved Terris! why wasn't she the winner?Kenleys was good too.Suede needs to just go for the fact that I can't become an alchoholic having to drink shot after shot each episode......he should NOT have won.why do the judges let the celebrities have so much influence?
Strange as it may seem, I actually liked Blayne's. The color wasn't the best, but the collar and pink and black panel design were cute.I'm so disappointed that Wesley's gone home. He was one of my favorites. Leanne should have gone for bad editing choices.
GothamTomato said... I hope you boys will post a freeze frame of Heidi's face after Nina said, 'Shiny, tight and short is the quickest way to look cheap.'I believe that Shiny, Tight and Short is what Heidi named her children.Can you imagine the look Posh Beckham would have shot Nina had she been a judge? "The flesh would have melted off of her face" (apologies to the devil wears Prada)
Thanks for your encouragement, Carol!
I noticed that the judges focused on the difficult fabric choices in the Final 6 this time. Maybe that's why Terri's awesome dress got ignored? What fabric did she have? Looked like jersey but I couldn't tell.
I enjoyed that episode. I will miss Wesley's adorable face, but his dress was bad. It was the right choice for the auf.
To prove I'm not just lurking, here is my geeky spreadsheet of the wins/loses. Hopefully, the link will work okay. I'll update each week.http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pm0qtb9p8EY8ZvBJLQvaeAg Did this because by the middle of Top Chef, I couldn't remember who won what.
HATE HATE HATE Suede's dress. It looks like something a room full of suburban dance class kindergarteners would have assembled during craft hour.*scowls, and returns to a near-empty bottle of Johnnie Walker blue label*
Suede's dress reminded me of Eddie Van Halen's guitar:http://www.distantcreations.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/xn90881-body-l.jpgNo?
grrr...Still angry that stella was top 3!I saw that same dress on a video whore in 1984.It was a Cinderella video...or maybe it was Quiet Riot!It's still skeezy decades later.
Poor Wesley. Poor, TLo. You guys must be beside yourselves with grief over this one. Me? Not so much. Wesley was cute and all, but the shorts had to go. And you know what? I think that Nina felt the same. Honestly, I think that Wesley was simply too young and too green for Project Runway. Looooved Blayne's "leath-uh" smack talk! Stella actually came off kinda cool tonight. And girl looked good when she rocked the H.I.P. liquid black eyeliner. Can't stand Blayne, but you must admit, he's one very funny little tanned freak!- edina -
In those shorts, Wesley looked like the missing Von Trapp child. Auf wiedersehen, indeed!When it was clear that Cheroin was in the top three, I dropped my Yahtzee shaker and my vodka went everywhere!!
only prostitutes would purchase stellas gross dress
Ok, my sister and I were watching the episode together and we made a comment about Suede's jacket that has the rhinestone outline of Suede on the back and this reminded us of Disco Stu from The Simpsons. Then we remembered that Disco Stu always talked in third person so I truly think that Suede is trying his hardest to emulate Disco Stu from The Simpsons.
Sewing Siren is not happy. Suede's dress is ugly. Suede's dress is impossible to produce. He did put a lot of work in it but...really the result was not so pretty.The Betty Page dress was much nicer. Also it could be manufactured. Terri was ignored again, her's was top three, but I have to look again when I'm sober.~~The minute they said that the model's would buy the fabric, I screamed at the t.v. buy a minimum of 4 yard! Ask Stan he was there. I can't believe none of the designers did that...~~~~~Sorry but I do kind of agree that Wes had the worst dress. But that doesn't mean he is a bad designer, just not the best for this challenge.
Next week, Jamie Doom is pounding a shot every time Suede says his own fucking name.
Call me a cab. I'm drunklicious.
*is the wimp at the corner table only having a Mike's Cranberry*Having only breezed through the comments I didn't see anyone else mentioning it... did anyone else notice when they did the Bravo poll that "Suede talking in the third person" actually got 40-some percent of the vote whereas "Blayne's Tanorexia" got 30-some percent... but they circled the tanorexia option as the winner?At least that's what happened in the Midwest, I don't know if they do different voting for different time zones.
No, tachikoma01 Sweetie...Bravo fucked up the survey across all time zones. They really don't give a shit anymore do they?
Can we talk about Keith for a second? Great face, great body, and I'm sure we're going to get a good shot of his great ass while he was bending over making Daniel's bed...But the standard Army issued birth control glasses HAVE TO GO. The little wire frames look so much better.
New drink contest , since we obviously didn't get our fix tonight: come up with the Gay PterodactylI'm thinking:fill a shot glass halfway with chachacalayered with a tablespoon of Baileystopped with three drops of grenadineAny others?
Did you guys see that Bravo circled the wrong number? They just don't give a fuck anymore, do they?
PS - I hate sweet drinks so someone else will need to taste it, but I think it will work. Speaking of not loving, don't get me going on whats-her-face the judge and green? Dyed fabrics? Kiss any green-ness goodbye. That was one lame challenge....
Using green fabrics was genius.Having the models choose the fabrics was twisty fun.Suede winning? As unpopular as this opinion seems to be, I think it was totally justified. I loved his design and frankly, I don't find him so horribly obnoxious. Christian of season four was so annoying I wanted to gag half the time he spoke and I never felt he got better, despite people saying he was only irritating in the first few episodes. I hated him through the entire season. Suede? So it's a little weird that he talks in third person. I still find him funny, entertaining, and refreshing.
Suede's dress looked like Eddie Van Halen's guitar (http://www.chucklevins.com/productimages/guitars/electric/evhfrankenstein.jpg). The dress looked OK on the runway, but those close-up shots during judging looked puckery and messy to me. I realized that they were going to choose it as winner, but I did not care for it at all.
Oh, and Trish?"To prove I'm not just lurking, here is my geeky spreadsheet of the wins/loses. Hopefully, the link will work okay. I'll update each week.http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pm0qtb9p8EY8ZvBJLQvaeAgDid this because by the middle of Top Chef, I couldn't remember who won what."Try the Wikipedia page:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Runway_(season_5)They keep up-to-date charts of who won when, who was out when, who was low and high, etc. for PR and other shows, including Shear Genius, Top Chef, and (I think) Top Design. Just go there and search for the show, then find the season you want.
I've decided that I like Leanne. I was really hoping that between her and Wesley, he'd be the one to go....even though I didn't want either of them to leave. Here's hoping the girl steps it up in future challenges. Kenley continues to be awesome. Personally I hate that kind of collar, but the judges love it and it does look sophisticated. Her dress was well made, if old-looking (in my eyes).
Dear PR judges,Stop taking acid before runway shows.
GothamTomato naming Heidi's children...Uncle Vanya quoting Auntie Mame...KWB also noticing the "eXspecially"....Ahhh these are the reasons I LOVE THIS SITE. It is my own unreal reality show. All of my great friends dishing about this show. Oh. Wait. I don't really know any of you.Don't care! Still Adicted!
wrong, whatever that other girl's name was (can't remember) she should have been out. Wesley's dress was ugly, yes, but he was cute, and realy what was that much different than the other one- except less loops hanging off of it.
"I believe that Shiny, Tight and Short is what Heidi named her children.--GothamTomato"Oh that is priceless!kanddmom
Ok Breakdown Time! Had my slushy screwdrivers... Poor little ShortShorts! He really should not have gone home. Perhaps is he has glued marshmallows on the back, he would have survived. Holly Hobby dodged a big bullet this week. Her dress was ASS. I actually like Korto's dress from a distance, but it had a Monet thing going on: looked icky close up. Other ASS-licious dresses: BLAYNE! UGH, slutlicious, girl! Jerrell's was a big ol' mess of craxy too... Does anybody remember the twiddlebugs from Sesame Street? His dress looked like Mama Twiddlebug's halter top! The flagrantly tear-shaped bosoms were not pretty. On the flip side, the goodies: I don't care what you all say. even if he is a crackhead. Naugahyde (what's his name... some kind of leather I think?) had a GREAT dress! Innovative, cool looking, young, fun. I also thought Joe did a great job with the sh** brown silk. Others: Keith: eh bad fit Terri: cute, not new though. Jennifer: get a better haircut Jennifer! EDaniel: cute, boring Kenley: I am OVER that big collar! OVERDONE! Daniel, Season 2! Kevin, Season 3! And girl, it's NOT couture! Kelli - cool dress, not really pretty. Emily: I loved, a bit short, but had no fabric.
Does anyone out there know what Daniel's blazer and tie were made of? It was gorgeous fabric!
WTF episode. The decision to let the models buy the fabric was totally whack. Wesley in particular was hogtied by his model's selection [yuck fabric and not enough of it]. Stoopid idea IMHO. But interesting to see how some of the personalities played out. Blayne is actually quite funny. And Suede is still annoying, but shows glimmer of talent.kanddmom
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!?!??!?!?!?!Suede's dress should only have been chosen as the winner if the premise was: "Using the remnants from two 1980s bridesmaid's dresses and a tutu, create a hybrid outfit that Barbie would wear to her white trash third-cousin's wedding."And Cheroin showed a little more personality this week, but nothing can make up for the fact that she made the TRASHIEST excuse for a cocktail dress that I could possibly conjure. Lace-up sides??? I have no problem with lacing as a concept, but it looked like the cheapie shoelace-crisscross that the Junior's section at Boston Store churns out to appeal to slutty preteens who wear glitter shirts that "Slut" on them... or something like that. UGH. Other thoughts: Hipster chick's (Emily?) orange and grey jersey dress was adorable and classy, but maybe too casual to deem win-worthy. At least it was visually appealing! *cough*Stella*cough*... *glare*Terri's was GREAT. I would wear that in a heartbeat.Korto's was actually good in theory, but I just think she made the outside seams stick out too far. If she treated it as more of a piping than a flipped seam, it would have been a chic way to utilize her model's curves and still look sophisticated. My poor Wesley... so adorable!!! Who will I lust after now?? His dress was SO much better than the rest of team ugly-brown-fabric. Sadly the model had no clue how much fabric to buy. -Evita
i'll miss gorgeous wesley! loved his first yellow dress, and didn't think this one was that bad (it looked better on the dress form).will you guys please please please post a shot of him ironing, in rememberance for the aufed?
Evita said:"My poor Wesley... so adorable!!! Who will I lust after now?? His dress was SO much better than the rest of team ugly-brown-fabric."Joe was on Team Ugly Brown Fabric and his dress actually FIT, so... yeah, not so much. Wesley's dress sucked. He's cute, but cute doesn't make wearable dresses.
late to the party, as always—just caught the second run. deferred to hubby’s mets-mania. poor morning bird can’t greet the dawn like his night-owl wife. :)all i can say is: this is the second epi, and already these designers are breaking down and weeping as though bryant park is at their fingertips. if the next batch is such a snuffling crop, they’ll fit right in at lifetime.~~zoë
Stunned that Suede won (should I refer to him in the first person, just to balance things out?) given that it will be hard as hell to reproduce that at a reasonable price even with the sweatshop labor. Oh, and that it was heinous.
I am way too old for this, but this season has all of the great making for a kicking drinking game. Any ideas? Here's mine. Level 1 Drink If: a) Suede self-references in 3d person (thanks whoever said this before me!) b) any word ending in "-icious" Level 2 Shots if: a) Tim Gunn refers to "bitch slapping" (I feel it coming...) b) Somebody pronounces Korto's name correctly. Cheers!
New here, but have been watching the show for the past three years.I agree with anonymous:"Suede's dress should only have been chosen as the winner if the premise was: 'Using the remnants from two 1980s bridesmaid's dresses and a tutu, create a hybrid outfit that Barbie would wear to her white trash third-cousin's wedding.'"Seriously. It was pooly fitted, unflattering, looked cheap, and just URG. I can't really articulate beyond that.I was really disappointed by the judging this week, except for the loser. Never really got that attatched to Wesley, and the dress was fugnificent. All of the ones in the top 3 were extremely Boring, IMHO. No color at all. My favorites were the dark blue one (forget whose it was >.<), Jennifer's orange and grey (OMG gorgeous), and surprisingly, Blanye's pink and black one. Crack smoking judges shoved all the color and pizzaz off the runway and collectively lost their shit over bland dresses. Was it just me, or did Stella's dress really wash out her model? And by the way, tons of wrinkles =/= great fit. ~Pippa
Favorite moment from the ep: Korto: This is the outside of the dress.Tim: (hiccups) This is the outside of the dress? Korto: Yes. (Tim has a minor seizure and a neck spasm)Tim: .....Oh!
Eddie Van Halen's guitar in a bad, bad way...ugh.
Umm...why again, was Terri's gorgeous dress overlooked by the judges?! Her garment was worthy of the win!And poor, poooor Wesley. There goes my eye-candy :-\.
The one shoulder, short, lace-up dress as done by YSL in 1990:http://decadesinc.blogspot.com/2007_05_01_archive.html (scroll down to the May 24, 2007 entry)I wonder if this is what Stella would have made if her model had brought her jersey! It's not so much goht as... Golden Girls.
softly weeping for cutie-pie wesley in his short pants...leanne should have gone instead...and i thought kenley's frock was better than suede's...it'll take another cocktail for me to drown out my wesley sorrow..:(
Kind of puzzled by the reactions tonight. Suede busted his ass and made a well-fitted and visually interesting dress--Kenley's was impeccably crafted but far less creative, and they're always going to pick the more daring choice, all else being equal. And I can't say that the choice of Wesley was unjustified either; even if he didn't choose it, no one made him torture that fabric to death. (I'd have sent Leanne home, though. She wasn't great last week, and she had no clue that piling more nonsense onto a failing design wouldn't save it.)What makes me love this season already: Blayne and Stella (a) hugged, and (b) both made good dresses. For the past two seasons, we've been sullenly watching as annoying, unpleasant people were given passes AGAIN AND AGAIN for making invariably terrible outfits--eventually even winning challenges during brief periods of lucidity. It's almost been an expression of contempt for the audience. But after tonight, the top two contenders for the Vincent/Ricky booby prize have managed to endear themselves to me AND demonstrate that they deserve this opportunity. I won't scowl so hard for the rest of thes season.
I agree that Suede won over Kenley because his was one of the few dresses that actually had an out-there point of view. The rest of the better looks were just great to okay dresses. Ironically, Stella made the dress that Kayne wanted to make in the black & white challenge, but simply couldn't. It looked too Studio 54 to me. I would have put someone else's as the #3.
WESLEY leaving reminded me of MALAN departing after making a poorly made brown dress in season three. Both were talented and would have gone far in the competition if it wasn't for a couple wrong choices. I will miss not seeing him on the show. Hopefully Project Runway can be the launching pad for all the success WESLEY wants.The winning dress was innovative and fun. SUEDE pulled off a dress that suited his model perfectly. She was filled with joy wearing the dress. The judges were sold and he deservedly won.KEITH made an eye catching dress that was both youthful and sophisticated. I think the fit is what kept him from being in the top three.For whatever reason TERRI's didn't make it in the top three. The dress looked modern and smart.KENLEY is a nasty unstable person. She does make pretty dresses though.
Love your decor. I'll have a lychee martini with grenadine and Midori, please. My favorite from Episode Two's promo is Stella bitching about her model not knowing a bit about "good fabric". Darling, you're the one who thinks trash bags good potentially make bad-ass leather pants. And, furthermore, that red booty-shorts and white eyelashes are a good decision. I'm not anti-Goth aesthetic, per say, or even punk or whatever Miss Stella thinks what she's doing is called, just the goddamn whip-stitching and general tawdry cheapness of it all. Whatever, I'm done being bitter about Jerry going home, promise.
sadly, i was glad that wesley was out because 1. i like leanne2. i don't want the bromance to be between him and daniel
is it just me or does daniel talk a LOT like rami??
kenley's dress: cute, but she made it last week out of table cloth, and christian did that collar all last season. suede: w.t.f.? W.T.F? when it came down the runway i thought: ballerina ugly. then old natalie portman says "coulda been ballerina barbie but it's awesome"no. it was not awesome.wesley: i didn't think his was THAT bad. leanne: bores the shit out of me. sayonara, sucker. i thought she'd be gone for sure, but the judges seem sure she has secret hidden tricks based on...?????korto: why? stella: seriously? wasn't that dress on a guns n roses album cover in the early 90s? jesus. being a one-trick pony isn't the same as having a "point of view."i really LIKED Keith and Daniel's dresses. cute, cute cute. whoever had that navy blue material did a nice job, too (it may have been K or D, i don't remember).That Shannone is one gorgeous girl.but i thought this was a shady shitty challenge - could have been fab IF it had been managed a little better. like - models have to choose from a limited selection of fabrics (only 2 lengths of that copper-brown, 2 of blue, etc etc etc) - make it a grabby race AND ensure that there's ENOUGH LENGTH of material for actually making something. bah humbug.I think Tim is full of hate and rage this season, and I love it.
I gotta wait for YouTube to see the episode and, anyway, I'm too drunk to say much. But, after viewing Rate the Runway pix I just wanna scream. MY GAWD THAT WAS SOME UGLY SHIT. No wonder everyone was boo-hoo-hooing.Jaysis. I feel like crying now, too.I may have to ditch Jennifer. WTF was that?-- desertwind
Just finished watching the episode (repeat after shear genius). Blayne - Safe, but cute. Loses points for lack of innovation but color combination is nice. like the black detail opposite the shoulder detail. B-Daniel - Not as strong as last week, but a modern, fun little black dress. The length in the front seems a tad short to me, but overall its flattering to the model. B+Emily - white top, black bottom little dress always flirts dangerously close to maid. However, I think Emily evaded that cliche with interesting detail in the bust. not a fan of the shoes, but I think it pairs nicely with the necklace. BJerrell - well they had jerrel mixed up with jennifer on the bravo website, but his look was memorable in not a good way. Looks latina hooker trying to look classy to me. the feather detail, peacock earrings, stitching, large bracelets, beaded choker. Just too much look. But I appreciate the risk taking, just lacked taste I think. C-Jennifer - I don't see this dress and think cocktail... but maybe for a girl like Jennifer this is what she would wear. I don't think glamorous when I see this dress, but I actually think the color combo works pretty well. Who'd have thought grey and peach went together. C+Joe - Looked a lot better on the runway than in the picture. He had that atrocious brown fabric. The color itself isn't so bad, just the satin... yikes. Wasn't much innovation here, but it works as a cocktail dress and it's not completely banal with the circle detail. the straps are nice. C+Keith - I loved this dress. I can see a very young girl wearing this and it's modern and flirty. Looks great on the model and the styling is perfect. He might have won, but other designers beat him out in innovation. A-Kelli - From fab to drab... hate that color combo. She probably felt like taking a risk with the color story since she had immunity. I doubt anyone in their right mind would pair teal with champagne. On top of that I don't care for the shoulders, and I kinda sorta liked the back. I hope you rally back for the next challenge. C-Kenley - Executed perfectly. Tim gunn's blog was right about it about the collar appearing a bit clownish... but I think it works well for her model. With her hair the collar works so I think Kenley made a good decision here. The black cinch belt detail really makes the look here. Classic, mature, but not old. A-Korto - Sorry sweety, I love you but you fell in love with an idea but you just weren't able to look at it from an unbiased perspective. You're still around because you took a risk with the fabric and the silhuoette. When the judges say they are disappointed that is not a good sign. I have high hopes you'll take the feedback to polish your designs but still keep you. DLeanne - Like Korto, fell in love with an idea. But unlike Korto, you could have easily edited this garment. You're still in because at least your garment fit and showed some interest and innovation. You're lucky wesley's design was made so poorly. FStella - Stop whining or go home. That said, that's a killer dress. It's completely you but fresh, pretty and fun. The point of the show is to step out of your box a little. I think these challenges will help you grow and become a better designer. A-Suede - People who hate this dress are KRAZY. I loved it and so happy he won. I thought they wouldn't make him the winner because it looks complicated to make (*cough* wendy pepper *cough*). It looks fabulous on his model and I LOVE those shoes. Perfect summer cocktail dress and it's innovative and chic. Suede really did rock it. Dresses like this is what PR is about. A+Terri - I'm a bit surprised she didn't make top 3. Her look showed great use of material and taste. Perhaps the silhouette is a bit mature for the challenge. B+Wesley - Adorable guy, but this dress is a monstrosity. I feel bad that he got a bad fabric, but this dress suffered from bad design AND bad construction. It didn't seem to have any innovative elements like Leanne's or Korto's. but mainly he went home for the poor construction. Just because you have a tough fabric to work with doesn't mean that's an excuse to make something badly. FI agree with the judges tonight. Although any of the bottom three could have gone home. They were all bad. But wesley's was inarguably the most poorly constructed of the bottom 3 garments. Suede won because it was innovative and looked great on his model. It's bound to be a bit controversial but I think it's great.
This challenge was completely bogus! The models shouldn't have been sent to mood to pick out fabric at all. But if that twist were so absolutely necessary they should have planned the dress out with the designer first so they could get proper materials/yardage/colors/etc. Or been under the supervision of the designers. Letting the models have free reign just put some designers in a terrible position.
bill:"Jerrell's was a big ol' mess of craxy too... Does anybody remember the twiddlebugs from Sesame Street? His dress looked like Mama Twiddlebug's halter top! The flagrantly tear-shaped bosoms were not pretty."Ummmm... thank you! How on earth was this not included in the bottom three? It was the definition of absolutely horrid. It really should have been between him and Wesley in the bottom two, imo. If the saggy, swingy, droopy boobs weren't enough, the skirt was too short, ill-fitting, and had FRINGE? The terrified look in the model's gallery pic is priceless.And speaking of hot messes, Daniel's black disaster could have rounded out the bottom three for my money. Poor design is one thing. Poor execution and poor design = hate hate hate!Also, not happy that what's-his-name won, but I really didn't like any of the dresses this ep. I'm with Tim - these bitches stressin' me out too. Someone better step up with something seriously cute next time or imma be pissed.PS - Kenley, quit with the clown collars girl.
oh, and an extra dirty martini for me. gotta have something to sip as the party peters out... thanks for the lovely reading all!
To the blogger above, Emily created the clown collar from last week.Kenley made the cute dodgeball top with the striking asymetrical skirt.I have to cheat using the bravo website cause all those girls are so similar.
frogboots:"I think Tim is full of hate and rage this season, and I love it."Me too! He put his bitchpants on for this season, and it looks like he's gonna need 'em.
oops! thanks anon 4:35 - well hopefully we won't have any more of that neck ruff mess this season.
ACK!Ignore my earlier comment about Jennifer's dress!Bravo's Rate the Runway pix mislabeled Jerrell's as Jennifer's (& vice versa)... Stupid Bravo. Just watched YouTube and...I remain Team Jennifer.'Night all.-- desertwind
Off to catch a flight - sorry I'm going to miss THIS discussion, kittens.My contribution; Keith's dress looked like Zsa Zsa Gabor's curtains! Discuss...I'll have a lot of reading on Saturday morning!
damn, nothing takes the suspense out of the final judge more than the guest judge announcing "i would wear that"and when heidi gets in on it, the deal is sealed
Is anyone else bothered by Keith's RAT TAIL?He turned around, and there it was in all it's scraggly glory. I think he loses "cute boy" points for that.
After tonight's shiny/tight/short comment, I have a new goal in life: take Nina club-hopping in South Beach with me. I've always wanted to see someone's head actually explode
So I wandered over to bluefly.com to see how they'd 'edit' the winning dress to make it more mass appealing/mass producible (since that's what Levi's did with Ricky's dress)... But instead of letting people see the actual finished product, they've just got a picture of Suede's bad cosplay win and are 'taking preorders.' For 280 dollars!! I wish I could have sold my old satin cosplays for that much on ebay. But still... I wouldn't buy a dress not knowing what the final mass produced version is going to look like. I'm sure it can't look like that seam-pucking unironed abomination.[And I'm most saddened by the people falling all over themselves to have it. Anyone over the age of 13 would look ridiculous in it.]
Formally favorite duchess comment"That crotch is INSANE !"New fave duchess comment"Trust me, even curvy girls don't want fins off their butts."
Tanqueray Dirty Martini.And lets talk about how Stella beat Terri. Shame, shame. I loved her dress!
I'm in a positive mood so I'll say I'm glad that Stella and Blayne redeemed themselves this week, as both designers and, especially in Blayne's case, as humans. However, the judges placing Stella in the top three was WHACK! Terri was robbed. She should have been top three, at least. Oh well, at least Kenley made the grade this time, because I think she deserved it last week.Now on to more serious subjects: since Wesley got the boot (and he probably deserved it - especially if he was wearing red crocks and shorts) what does this mean in terms of the supposed budding romance b/w Wesley and Daniel? Since the rumor is that a romance occurs ON the show it can't be those two, so who? Daniel and ... Keith?? Does Daniel fall for Keith's bed-making skills and (as the previews show) his scary intensity?
"Furthermore...Is Kevin a crip or a blood? Or did his botox go bad?"Squeeee! Man, the designers were so openly rude to the models about their fabric choices. I mean, I understand it was dicey to allow the unexperenced to pick fabrics, but still, they were also 'clients' and should have been treated with a little more respect. Seemed very unprofessional to me.
Suede's dress was horrible. I can't believe the judges picked that monstrosity.
Great episode! I actually liked Stella and Blayne this time. Love the place, Tlo.
"par3182 said... damn, nothing takes the suspense out of the final judge more than the guest judge announcing "i would wear that" and when heidi gets in on it, the deal is sealed"Exactly! I was like 'are you kidding me?' Terri again is completely ignored by the judges.
Poor Wesley, he's so talented. It really sucks you make one mistake and you're sent home while Cheroin hates the challenge, hates to be there ....and she's still there.
I can't wait to read what Tlo has to say about this episode : )
I'll miss you my sweet Wesley. You certainly did not deserve to go so soon.I'm sorry, but I hated Suede's dress. And I can't stand him talking about himself anymore.And was Blayne funny or what? I was just waiting for Stella to call him leather face. I actually like him this week, but Suede not so much.Still loving my Daniel and glad he got his dress done in the nick of time.Please, please, please cut that rat tail off Keith! Not attractive, nor was the bandana.
Jennifer's Ode-to-Chris-March, pubes-at-the-hemline dress was a monstrosity. And that model's boob-perkiness is all that's saving her from a nipslip. Was that a crude enough review for everyone?Keith and Daniel made convincing maternity cocktail dresses--second trimester benders are so retro!Terri, Jerrell, and Kenley had the real top 3. Jerrell's jersey wasn't really cocktail dress-y enough. Terri's was beautiful and well fitted, but probably not WOW enough to draw attention. and Kenley's dress had that stand up collar that has won every other challenge it has appeared in, so who can blame a gal for trying. But DAMN did Shanone rock that dress. She's amazing. One of the few that is actually model-pretty instead of girlfriend-pretty.Suede as Disco-Stu...love it. thank you person from earlier whose name I have forgotten.
New name for TLo blog...REMNANTS OF NONSENSE! Seriously, I cracked up over that.Um, Cheroin scared me when she put on her dramatic eye makeup and she became a different person. That lace up dress was tickity-tack, and reminded of something Geena Davis would wear (which is not a good thing).And Jennifer (was she the one in the bottom three on Team Ugly Brown?)...she was seriously cruising into Jubilee Jumbles Camp territory with those flaps and loops. Extra adornment does not a fashion statement make!
I'm thinking Wesley was auffed more for wearing to the runway what appeared to be linen hot pants with dress shoes than his nasty creation.
I didn't think Suede deserved the win simply because I didn't think his dress was all that out there or creative. Sure, he sewed the strips of fabric together, but since when is that a new technique? I also feel like I've seen that dress a thousand times before (and call me crazy, but it didn't really seem very much like a cocktail dress, either).It was definitely the most "young Hollywood" so I'm not surprised Natalie Snortman was all about it. I'm not all that sure Kenley deserved the win either, her design was chic and well-made but kinda eh (and I'm sorry people, but NO MORE COLLARS. It's officially overkill and is now just making you look lazy. Find a way to make your design interesting without throwing a bunch of shit on the collar!)Stella's dress was some seriously cheap-looing DEB or Wet Seal shit. Wtf did the judges see in it? Lace-up side? How very Hot Topic, Stella.Korto had gorgeous fabric and she managed to fuck it all up. Then, she cried when told she was safe - and bitch wasn't even in the bottom 2! Over her.They should have said something about Jennifer's dress, I thought it was gorgeous.Terri's was very pretty and well-made, as everyone mentioned, and her model made it absolutely gorgeous...but come on, it was a dress you could find in any department store. Still, I think Terri's a front-runner.LeAnn...how I love you, you cute little nerd girl. I was having heart palpitations when she and Wesley were the bottom 2. Sadly, I think they made the right decision. LeAnn's dress was ugly, but she had an interesting idea and went with it. With some editing (and a different fabric) it could have been gorgeous. Wesley's dress, let's face it, was a slut-suit, and not a well-made one. Yes, it sucks his model bought too little of a shiteous fabric, but at that point he should have come up with another game plan and "made it work," rather than just go ahead and make the dress he originally intended to. Perhaps if he hadn't overworked it to death he could have added a few inches to the bottom. Still, he left to early. Sadness.In re: the models and fabric...um, did none of the designers just flat-out say, "Get me 5 yards of teal organza, 3 feet of elastic, and a zipper" or anything? They said the models were going to shop for the designers, it didn't say they must select whatever they wanted. Also, you'd think women who wore gorgeous clothing for a living wouldn't bring back cheap-ass looking brown sateen shit, especially since the dress was for them. Wtf?
Love reading all these comments. This is so much fun, boys!
Thank you for providing this space, TLo. It's a lot of fun! Now off to the next post : )
Did anybody find a bunch of keys by chance?
Trish (spreadsheet queen),Your spreadsheet rocks! I just added it to my Favorites. Nice job!
Love what you've done with the place, TLo. Guess it just goes to prove that when the gays move in, values skyrocket!
I did think it was interesting that Suede won a challenge that involved "mass marketing" for a dress that intricate, since season 1, they basically told Jay his Chrysler Building dress would have won, but it was too difficult to reproduce. And lets be honest, the Chrysler Building dress, damn near iconic. I agree. Frozen pizza. Ick.
