Interview with Keith

Labels:
This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?" He yawned, stretched, and said "Sure." So we did.





First of all, how does is it feel to be the hottie-du-jour reality tv contestant? There is not one single gay site out there who hasn't posted pictures of you or mentioned how hot you are.
I love it. Exposure is exposure, right? I definitely want to be known as Keith Bryce, the Fashion Designer, but I have to let the world get to know me, so I am taking advantage of the publicity.

You mentioned you were raised by your mother and your three sisters. What was it like growing up gay in Salt Lake City?
I'm sure it's comparable to growing up in any other conservative, traditional community. Salt Lake City is beginning to bloom demographically and culturally, but it has a well-earned reputation for being home to people with very traditional family values, so homosexuality kind of conflicts with that. But all in all, Salt Lake is a very safe, warm place to live.

What made you try for Project Runway?
I felt like it was a great platform to introduce my work to the world. Project Runway has always inspired me and I wanted to be a part of it. The other designers, past and present, are an inspiration to everyone watching the show- I was inspired and I want to inspire others. That's a lot of inspiration;)

Best and worst moment on the show.
Worst: episode 3 judging- my artistic perspective was reduced to a "toilet paper dress". . . I thought it was beautiful, and it fit the challenge to a t. . . Best: every week that I am "in"!

How did you feel winning the Lipstick Jungle challenge knowing that your work will be on TV for the world to see?
It makes it all worthwhile! Project Runway has been such an awesome journey for me, and having my outfit worn by such a beautiful fashion icon on such a great program is just AMAZING.. It's another venue for the world to get to know Keith Bryce!!

What do you take away from this experience?
I will take this experience as the opportunity for the next step. Reality television is something else, but it certainly is a great way to present yourself and your work to the world.

How did you become interested in fashion?
I've always had a passion for fashion. . .:)

What's the fashion scene like in Salt Lake City?
Growing. . . there's a palpable buzz, a feeling in the air. We certainly haven't been thought of as a fashion hub up to this point, but we are changing that. There is a growing community of artists and fashionistas breaking through, creating and wearing progressive fashions. It's exciting to be a part of it!!

Tell us about Filthy Gorgeous.
Filthy Gorgeous was created by Artist and Designer, Keith Bryce. Transcending the boundaries of traditional Fashion apparel, Filthy Gorgeous is focused on creating unique, wearable art, whether it be an artistic one-of-a-kind t-shirt or a couture evening gown. Keith Bryce's intention from the very beginning has been to create a platform for Filthy Gorgeous which combines art, fashion, and a modern lifestyle in an original way. At the forefront of this vision has been the Filthy Gorgeous Artist Network - a venture established to showcase the talents of accomplished as well as unknown artists who inspire our community and push the boundaries of creative excellence. Through school programs and as a venue for budding artists and designers, Keith has stayed true to his dream of creating an unparalleled opportunity to enhance the community through creative expression.

Filthy Gorgeous in essence is redefining the way the market views art and fashion in a generation of mass-production and mass-consumerism. It is about inspiring our generation, providing something of substance and culture and above all doing it with a passion for creative integrity and originality.

Where do you draw inspiration for your collections?
Life! It's cliche, but really, I am inspired by everyday, the magic of the world around me, different people, lifestyles, energy. . .I think that is how we are all inspired!

You're a self-taught designer with a background in marketing and advertising. What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of that? How would you describe your design process?
It has been helpful in that I see myself creating original and progressive work that is still marketable. Self-taught means I am forever learning! It is a process every day, but I am not held back by technicalities-I have the perspective of an artist, I believe I can create anything!

You also make your own fabrics. Could you tell us a little bit about that?
I have a background in abstract art, and so I love to communicate that through fashion. I love to be as creative as possible, and fabric is just another canvas for my perspective.

What kind of person do you imagine wearing your clothing?
My aesthetic is based on a unique perspective for everyone . . .I want to create fashions WITH my clients, make wearable art that fits the wearer. I want everyone to wear my clothes! I love colors and textures and no rules! I just want to make something beautiful!!

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Traveling the world! I definitely want to be considered a staple of the Fashion Industry. If you are going to Fashion Week, you'll need to see Keith Bryce's collection while you're there!

Am I the only one who's sick of hearing "wearable art" over and over again? It's code for shredded mess dresses.

He's still the hottest mormon I've ever seen, though, so...I forgive him.


TLo said: "This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?""

hahahahaha! Boys, you are so hilarious. You know Keith would never cheat on his husband, ToddNY.


Why must there always be a resident hottie on reality shows? Keith is average and arrogant (which is not a very attractive combination). He'd better use his fifteen minutes wisely, because talking about yourself in third person (Keith Bryce this, Keith Bryce that) is the quickest way to get on my damn nerves! One day you're in, the next day you're out!


Looking at the portfolio, I question his taste level.


Oh no! More third-person references! Keith, either stop cutting and pasting from your own press releases, or get away from Suede!


Keith! is fond! of using! exclamation points!! But he sounds passionate and that is a nice thing.


As the Duchess said in her review last week, Keith has a raw aesthetic. All of his "self-taught" revelations are wearing thin with me. Anyone in marketing should know that you want to reach the widest audience possible, and scalloped fringe is not going to achieve that. I foresee his youth and self-righteousness as being his Achilles heel. He needs to get out of his own way.


I forgot to reference the post:
Keith--

I am sure he is creative etc. I am not too attracted to the posted portfolio, not my speed but then I am sure that despite his protestations, he does not design for the average 43 year old (Brooke Shields notwithstanding--she is hardly average!).

I guess if I were 19 I might like them, except for the bubble dresses and anything that hangs at crotch level. My criteria has always been that I need to be able to pick something off the floor without the world seeing all my secrets.

However, he does have interesting ideas and while they don't always succeed, he does refine them and makes them work out nicely as evidenced by his latest winning design. I think PR should give creatives a bit more time to tweak. But it is what it is.

irt to his third person thing-- maybe he just cut and pasted some marketing copy. I used to have a really hot roomie who was Mormon but not from SLC.


This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?" He yawned, stretched, and said "Sure." So we did.

So, too much to drink last night?

That's the only reason I can think for the lapse of sanity. ;~)


This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?" He yawned, stretched, and said "Sure." So we did.

"Slutty, slutty, slutty!"

(Actually, that would describe much of Keith's portfolio.)


This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?" He yawned, stretched, and said "Sure." So we did.

I hope this didn't involve any bad 3:00 am decisions.


He seems like a nice enough guy and he definitely seems passionate about his work. Actually now that he says he's into abstract art his fashion aesthetic makes more sense. While I personally am not particularly partial to wearing this kind of fashion I know plenty of people who are. A lot of my friends (we're all around 19-24) are into that kind of shredded, bubble skirt, etc...my friend is a textiles major and her work is very similar to Keith's.

Plus...he is pretty attractive...


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

I concur! Especially Row 2, #s 2 & 3. No wonder most of his creations on the show are a millimeter away from his model's bjango....

But it was a good interview TLo, thank you.

I hope you boys made him some damn good pancakes....


I kinda like him a bit more now.


I just don't get why everyone thinks he's so hot. Is it that we tried to find "the hottie" and then just picked the first one that could maybe possibly fit into that slot?


Thanks for the interview, guys! It's nice to see a contestant with so much passion for what he does. I applaud that.


Terrific! He has the Gotham Tomato stamp of approval.

I like that he is self-taught as well. I think the most interesting things most often come from self-taught artists because they haven't gone through the sausage grinder, and aren't part of any School of thought or style.

Or could it be that not everyone has the exact same taste as you?


Are the contestants allowed to give interviews if they're still on the show??


Great interview as usual, Tlo! Thank you for this. It's always nice to get to know the designers a little more outside the workroom. I think it's awesome that he makes his own fabrics. I should try that someday.


I think he is a closet straight-guy.


Damn. I was hoping you would ask him why he can't make anything other than bubble skirts. Or why he isn't embarassed telling celebrity clients like Brooke Shields that 'fring' is "his thing." Or even why he lamely copied a Scissor Sister song title for his cliche clothing line.

I laughed out loud when he said he isn't held back by technicalities like sewing techniques because he's an "artist." Sure, Keith, sure. Keep telling yourself that.


Isn't this year different from the past years in that the designers are giving interviews while the show is running and before the finale? I don't recall hearing from any of the designers in the past until after the finale aired.

Anyone?


He's certainly fitting the stereotype of good looking but can't really answer a question with a thought-out response.

TLo asked a great question about Keith making his own fabrics and he just glazed over it in his answer. Or how he became interested in fashion. Shallow response. Or what inspires him. Shallow response. Or how his marketing/advertising background helps/hurts his work. Shallow Response. Or his design process. NO RESPONSE.

But ask him about his fashion line and he can copy and paste a whole excerpt about it into an emailed interview.

I learned nothing from that interview. I don't see any thought process in his answers and in his clothes.

He's a virtual one-note.


I like him more after reading his interview, though I agree about the cut/paste of the press release. He seems to have his head on straight.

Did anyone else notice that his male models seem to have bigger busts than the women? Now THAT's titscrepancy.


Something about the tone of his interview gives me the impression that he's not going to be on the show much longer.

"Gorgeous Things said...

Same here. I think reality tv shows dehumanize people, so I thank you guys for that.


I'm not too impressed with his designs, but then I am not a 90 pound 18 year old, as his collection appears to call for. His winning design was appropriate for Miss Brooke, so maybe he does have some range of design. He does seem a nice enough guy and is a good looker, which always seems to help!!!
----StkrShock


He sounds like he hasn't got a brain in his head. If he goes very far, I'll be really surprised.


His clothes are not for everyone but that could be said about any designer out there. I did like some of the looks and I think he's talented. He's young and has a lot to learn. He's just looking for an opportunity, whether he's hot or nor, like all the other designers. Give the guy a break.


I don't get his stuff at all. It just looks so... tacky.


So that's where my husband was last night? Whores!!

Yay! Thank you for the interview, Tlo! He seems to be a nice guy and I wish him the best.


I love how he over rode Kenley and that print I was gagging on.


Oh, the wide-eyed earnestness!
Oh, the predictable cliches!
Oh, the exclamation points!

I'm sure he's a nice boy, but he's a little dull.


Y'know, there's a difference between fun bitchery and just plain nastiness.


Great interview guys....but one question.....you just couldn't ask him about the "ducktail" huh?


You're right, Zak...you might not have been talking about me, but my post was just kind of pointlessly mean. My bad!


Still not so hot to me, and his clothes definitely are not my style. And cheating on toddny with TLo? Unforgiveable! ; )


Where is all this "arrogant" and "self righteous" stuff coming from? He's been pretty low key so far. I haven't heard him putting down his fellow designers or anything. In fact, he's shown a lot of kindness toward them.


I really haven't seen anything THAT villainous or arrogant about Keith thus far, so I'm wondering where all these haters are coming from.


This comment has been removed by the author.

Is Keith single?


I'm really not sure how I feel about him though I don't think he's that hot. I will give him the benefit of the doubt in the interview; I imagine it's hard to give an "in-depth" interview in the middle of a reality show without giving anything away.


"Zak said...

I second that emotion!

--GothamTomato


I can see a bit of Big Fish, Small Pond syndrome there. I saw something very similar in Dublin during the 90's, a sense of awakening and growing up in a cities people. Overall, he seems nice enough though.

I do agree that he should work on his responses if he feels that he is going to go somewhere. He may be "passionate" and "inspired", but he needs to be able to communicate that better. His clothes don't quite speak for themselves yet.


anonymous said...

C'mon, he walked in front of Stella's camera! That's pure evil.

But we should let it slide...he's obviously acting out because somebody stole his shoulders.


Does no one remember the "Some people have to go to school hoping to learn the gift that I just naturally have?" comment? The constant talking about he's the best and everyone else should go home? Yes, I'm sure it's due to insecurity (and it's no worse than what a lot of the designers have been saying), but insecure arrogance is still arrogance....which is a lot more annoying to deal with coming from someone who doesn't seem to have the talent they appear to love themself for.

And why are people only so upset about slightly negative comments now? Do we not remember the death threats thrown Kenley's way yesterday? I guess it's ok to make nasty comments until someone attacks your favorite. Whatever.


I noticed the third person reference too. Maybe he is just trying to get his last name out there in the public. Other than that he sounnd very grounded.


Whatever said...

Does no one remember the "Some people have to go to school hoping to learn the gift that I just naturally have?" comment?


How is that worse than anyone else in the history of the show? I don't recall many designers proclaiming that they're not good enough to be there.

The constant talking about he's the best and everyone else should go home?

Please provide an example because I don't recall him ever saying anything like that.

And why are people only so upset about slightly negative comments now? Do we not remember the death threats thrown Kenley's way yesterday? I guess it's ok to make nasty comments until someone attacks your favorite. Whatever.
Your mileage obviously varies, but calling someone ugly, stupid and arrogant doesn't strike me as "slightly negative."

And no, I don't recall anyone making death threats against Kenley. Again, examples? I DO recall a bunch of people getting bent out of shape over her getting criticized at all with quite a few people implying that criticizing her amounted to misogyny.


Oh god, another third person talker.


I find keith INCREDIBLY boring. And he's just not quite cute enough to make up for it (IMHO.) Plus, it just seems like he's trying to hard to make us think he's awesome.

Boring, blah looking, ego so large I'm surprised it fits in the studio... blech.

I'd rather listen to Suede talk about himself in third person that listen to Keith drone on about how great he thinks he is.


WTF is w/the 3rd person comments from the contestants this season?? Keith is young. His marketing background gives him the latitude to plug a product obnoxiously (marketing majors in my school were so annoying). Like Dax said, his clothes do not speak for him at this time in his life/work. The clothes in his portfolio are full of mediocrity. The only thing I wanted as that girl's body in the white crocheted, white, bikini top, white skirt and white hood.
--Frances Spencer


Can we please stop arguing over who can say what? It's tiring when it's not about the designs or the show but rather who everyone's personal favorite is. They all have good and bad qualities and I'm sure none of them are the saints or antichrists they're made out to be.

Keith seems relatively inoffensive but he does really come of as arrogant to me. If some people don't think so, great, but obviously some people do. And regardless of what anyone thinks about his looks, they have nothing to do with his (in)ability to design.

I think it's been removed (thank goodness!), but someone had posted "Kenley needs to die".

The third person section is so obviously a cut-and-paste from a press release. Keith's interview here, while perhaps not the most intellectually challenging thing I have ever read, is still articulate and sounds like an educated adult speaking. I really hate his portfolio - it's SO not my aesthetic, and has such a narrow audience appeal.

and ALL the designers talk about how they're the best and will win the show. I think Project Runway holds them at gunpoint and forces them to say it.

keith: not inspiring to me, but reasonably articulate. And he does have the ability to recognize his own use of cliched statements; not everyone does. I would have liked to hear more about his background in abstract art, and his fabric-making.
oh, and he has the Gotham Tomato seal of approval. would that *I* might receive such approval!

In complete agreement. "Wearable Art" always makes me think of papier mache` earrings with google eyes pasted on them.

Ha!! I love it.

(Though I think Patsy Stone is probably right about Keith & ToddNY.)


Re THIRD PERSON:

I don't think that was him talking. That was a reprint of his company's promo material. My guess, anyway.

TLo , after you guys had breakfast, did Keith go home or to his office, and you conducted the interview by email? And when you asked about his company, he just cut-and-pasted that info in reply?


Since it keeps coming up so much this season, let's address what we would consider to be appropriate commentary.

Despite our well-earned reputation for bitchery, we do, believe it or not, have limits as to what we'll say about someone on the show. We try to restrict our bitchy comments to people's actual behavior and not make suppositions beyond that. For instance, we thought Kenley's behavior this week was nasty and so we called her a bitch. To us, perfectly acceptable. Wishing death upon her? TOTALLY unacceptable.

We also don't make fun of someone's looks. Their hair, their clothes, their makeup, yes. Those are choices they make and as far as we're concerned, they're fair game. But we would never call someone ugly or fat or make fun of a big nose or any of a bunch of other derogatory terms based on their physicality.

And it should go without saying, but we would absolutely never make any sort of ethnic or racial jokes at someone's expense.

We do our best to welcome all opinions here and we certainly don't discourage anyone from making negative comments. We've long held that if you're going to put yourself out there on a reality show, you have to put up with people having opinions about the choices you make. We just ask that everyone try and use a little common sense. What would you say if you were standing in front of these people? We would definitely say things like "Girl, you're acting like a bitch" or "What the hell were you thinking with that hair?" But we'd never call someone ugly or stupid to their face and we wouldn't do it here either.


This comment has been removed by the author.

I don't think he is arrogant at all - you have to remember that they cut and edit video to create drama - and as far as the third person talk in this interview- obviously some of the answers are just cut and paste from another source (which probably should have been noted in the interview)...


Thanks, TLo. You always know just what to say!


If you can't explain your aesthetic and work to the point that you're cutting and pasting pre-written statements to answer questions about your clothing line, you are not an artist and probably need to find work in a different field. I'm not trying to be mean, just honest.


I think it's the nature of the beast for reality show contestants to talk about how highly they regard their talents. I can't fault Keith for that.

But his portfolio? Not my kind of clothes. And the styling? Is it humid in Salt Lake City?


Totally don't understand his appeal. The ripped physique doesn't change the fact that he's otherwise sorta ordinary-looking. And his designs...meh. Also, 'Filthy Gorgeous'?! So dumb.


TLo said...

This is why I love it here. All opinions are welcome. There is no need to get mean.

SisterZip


I agree with TLo's rules, but I don't think the majority of what people complain about are personal attacks. Saying Keith is "a talentless hack" and that he designed something "fucking ugly" might be rude and harsh, but it has everything to do with him in the context of the show and nothing to do with him personally.

Yes, there are some "Keith is stupid and ugly" posts, but they are few and far between, and I hardly think they constitute the "venemous atmosphere" so many here are complaining about it. And it does seem complaints about people being mean only overwhelm the threads about the "regulars"' here favorites, yet 300+ comments about Kenley being a vile bitch and....*crickets* from the "this is mean" crowd aka "the regulars."


If all you heard was crickets in the comments to the Kenley post, then you weren't listening hard enough. Plenty of people complained about the negativity.

Besides, as T Lo pointed out there's a big difference between "She's a bitch" and "He's stupid/ugly."


I kinda like the brown brocade shorts (berms? shorts?). Not with the suspenders and neckpiece though. Apart from his tibetan-flag tangle during the New York-inspiration challenge, I don't mind his fabric choices so far.

- Semiophile


Yeah, there is a difference...being called a bitch is worse than being called "stupid." One is a swear word and a harsh assesment of someone, whereas the other is a juvenile

And the complaing going on was about how people didn't hate her because she's a woman but because she's a bitch. I can't quite disagree with the assessment, and truly don't think any of it was because Kenley is a woman, but don't try to suggest anyone was trying to defend her against "venemous attacks" like they are here about Keith. There is no comparison between the two threads, and this is from someone who hates Kenley and loves Keith.


Sorry. I meant to say "and the other one is a juvenile slam one hears from 1st graders."

Pardon me, but I call bullshit. T Lo did a good job of pointing out the difference. She was called a bitch because she acted like one. That's an assessment based on her behavior.

You really need to go re-read those comments. There were plenty of people complaining about the harsh comments against her.

Or is this just one of those things where you can call a man stupid but you can't ever point out when a woman acts badly?

And please stop putting the quotes around "venomous attacks." No one said that but you.


I just wish he would stop wearing the bandana scarf around his head....

Good interview, intelligent responses.

I am a longtime lurker and would suggest that allowing anymouse comments are part of the problem with the tone of some threads.


Looks like Keith Bryce contracted the Suede flu.


TLo said: "This morning, we woke up, rolled over and said "Keith? Would you mind if we did a little interview?"

My first thought was "Oh no! Our poor toddny!" My second was "Argh! Another third person talker!"


Aw, your boyfriend is so cute.

He talks like someone with a marketing background.

That's good! Now he just needs to step up the work.

-- desertwind

PS - you boyz took away his bandanas, right?


i really the like green dress in the upper left.


I really must compliment you guys for always showcasing the designers’ work. I love the interviews and the collection posts so thank you for another great post.


He's right about Salt Lake City. Elite Models is opening a new headquarters there!


Also, why didn't you ask how big his dick was??


Good interview! but maybe too many exclamation points?!?!?! I bet he's out in 2 more episodes!


Sorry, boys, despite your new found "intimacy" with him, and despite his win, Keith is still just a so-so designer.


For starting out, I really Keith's designs. I mean ... this is something I would wear.

It's fresh, young (I fit those two), exciting and I want to know more.


I hate this guy. He's so full of himself - and the comment about Kenley? "If I can get her to shut her mouth and stick to sewing"? I don't like Kenley either but COME ON, give me a break. What a jerk! I hope he's gone soon.


Well, we'll find out next week if he can hold up to this claims won't we? Based on the previews the next challenge should be right up the alley of someone so "artistic", and who dares reference the most awesome music video ever.

Trial by fire is always the best, and it makes for great TV.


Why os Keith Bryce talking about himself in the third person? It's bad enough when Suede does it, we don't need him doing it too.


Glad you got the interview! Nice intro, too.


Was that an interview or a press release? Jeez, talk about the cut and paste answers he provided. He put as much thought into those as he does his designs...very little.


Keith is valiantly holding up the middle for me. I haven't loved his work, but wouldn't have aufed him yet either. The term "wearable art" has become cliche. I don't see it in his portfolio, but it would describe his penchant for hanging bits of stuff off his dresses a la Vincent Libretti who I think used that same term for the recycle challenge (yes, I have tried to block him from my subconscious but it hasn't worked).

And I get the notion that someone self-trained might be more creative because they haven't been pigeonholed into any of the fashion school boxes. But a designer who is going to go that route needs to be able to draw on a deep, deep well of talent. And few of the home-schooled PR'ers have tapped a gusher.


T&Lo,

I adore Keith's design aesthetic. I'd wear his girlie fluffy clothes any day. No complaints in the eye candy department either. While I thought his design wasn't the best this week (yeah, I liked his outfit, but Stella and Jerrell wuz robbed) I can't complain.


He is such a joke. His experience in "fabric making" is just spray painting stencils or freehand on fabric. big deal, what middle school student hasn't done this? If you think this collection he has right now is bad it's better than the hanes tank top collection that was so unique and progressive to have screen prints, a splash of paint or scrap of lace or button attached. (sarcasm) He is only getting ahead by his ego. The only reason he won the last challenge was because of kenley, looking at his other work in the show is completely obvious he needed her to make something polished. His "raw aesthetic" is just an excuse for sloppy tailoring with piled on layers and excess.


I LOVE some of the looks. Very hip and young. I'd totally wear them.


I love Keith. I wish you would show more of him. His body was pumped in this episode from the workout. My only advice to Keith is to work on your delts and lats, they need more muscle mass.


toddny-- are you taking him back or throwing him out?

The stuff in his portfolio was uninspiring to me and I have seen it before. But there is always hope that it will improve.

He does seem to have the marketing angle down.

Has anyone mentioned that he "lifted" the name of his line from my favorite Scissor Sisters tune?

"Cause I'm FILTHY, and you're GORGEOUS"

I think he could definately be both....definately the latter...have to get him into bed to find out the former....

sorry ToddNY ; P

Cool interview. Thanks!


Talented and Hot. Now that's a nice combo.

Great portfolio, but can anyone tell me who did his photography?


Hello! What about his TATTOOS!? That's all i really want to see....i mean, hear about!


--Filthy Gorgeous' Portfolio:




"slutty, slutty, slutty" ;)


Why is it anytime gay men see tattoos and facial hair they start screaming "hottie"? I guess those things symbolize masculinity to most gays, something they envy or desperately wish to attain.

Keith is bland and average looking. His build is unremarkable, maybe even a little doughy. Hardly a model man.

Give me Wesley, Blaine or Daniel any day.

A guy who is comfortable and confidant with his sexuality, that's hot.

Oh, brother.

The only thing more pathetic than people who can't handle different tastes is people who think they can psychoanalyze those whose taste differs from theirs.

Shhh. It's okay. People are different. You don't have to feel so threatened by it.

The third person section is so obviously a cut-and-paste from a press release.

I agree. Totally obvious and I don't get it why everybody complains about this.

I like him more after reading his interview

and I agree. He seems to be a nice guy.


Nice interview and I for one like his portfolio fine. It's not to die for but it shows a lot of stuff that I would wear (or would have worn when I was younger).

Honey, I am female and I have no wish at all to attain masculinity but I still think he's hot :D


Is the first dress in row 3 of his portfolio a Gristedes table cloth?


Keith B. has a decent body, a decent face, and intriguing tattoos. In the looks department, he's the best of a bad lot this season. And he can design and sew better than I, or any of my friends, can. (Which, admittedly, isn't saying a whole lot.)

With that said, his little rat-tail automatically renders suspect any decisions he makes that have to do with taste. Someone needs to do him the favor of cutting it off in his sleep.


I have to agree that Keith's designs, his so-called "art" (which, believe it or not, is 10 times worse than his fashion portfolio) and his Castro-clone "look" are all totally unoriginal and uninspired.

This cut-and-paste interview, as others have noted, proves that he's not half the creative genius he claims to be, nor is he the brightest crayon in the box. I'm sure he's happiest back in his small pond of Salt Lake.


oh my god, he is sO NOT HOT!! With those hideous bandanas!!??? What is gay American coming to lauding this loser as a hottie? And (spoiler alert), it is a crime against humanity that he didn't go home tonight. SERiously.


He should have been sent home a looong time ago.
I agree that his "raw" (read: unpolished and unprofessional)approach is a total cop-out and resent the fact that he uses "art" an an excuse to get away with his crap.

In terms of his looks, he should really lay off the weights and do some cardio so he can get rid of that gut. There's no denying it, he's chunky.


I just don't understand all the vicious comments. Point blank Keith Bryce is gorgeous. He is down to earth. His final night on Project Runway brought a tear to my eye. I have been to Salt Lake, think it is beautiful but understand why he wants to get out. My heart broke for him. He has a good fashion sense and too freakin bad if it isn't your thing. That's what makes fashion. New inventive ideas. Keep going Keith. You will always have a place in Columbus Ohio if you really need to get out. AND, I don't want to hear from all you bitches that live in LA, NY, Chicago lambasting Columbus as a cow town. Keith would fit in great here. Most of you pretentious bitches would fall over your own appendages to try and be normal.


Peaceband is nothing more than the big C


I wonder if anyone has really looked at the Filthy Gorgeous!!!! website. If you had, you would notice that there are NO OTHER artists involved in his so called "artists network". Could that be because nobody else can work with this guy? No doubt he alienates everybody with his delusional, narcissistic, completely copy-cat and uninspired style. And by copy-cat, I mean that Keith might be more than a little influenced by the original SLC mainstay, Black Chandelier. I mean, there are 6 or 7 looks on there and nothing else. Funky screen-prints on T-shirts is now the status quo and saturating stores like American Eagle. Even his name is lifted from something else cooler than he will ever be.
"Change the way people dress"? Pu-leeeeze!
Also, he might go to the gym, but his anti-social personality definitely negates any shred of hotness.


Keith needs to get over himself. I saw VERY LITTLE that was interesting or innovative that he created. He is young (26 or 27) inexperienced, has a chip on his shoulder, cannot take constructive criticism and creates clothing for teenagers. Do you actually think he was going to make it to the finals after that fringe disaster he created? If you are going to design for women, you don't make something they look large in and remove their waistline. I went to his website (yawn), looks like cheap clothing you can buy at Wet Seal in the mall. I saw his artwork...he should stick to t-shirts and designing for the young crowd. All he did was complain or boast about his "asthetic" or his "art." He was soooooo annoying. His clothing grew progressively worse the longer he was on the show. If he can get over himself and quit designing for teenagers he may have a career in fashion. Slim chance, but maybe.


If you really new keith bryce you wouldn't like him very much. I can tell you some stories. That would show you the real person.
