Auf Wiedersehen!

This is a little mean, but you have no idea how fun it is to type "auf wiedersehen" again.


"Hello, fabric, what would you like me to make you into today?"

"Gee, I don't know, Ari. How about something that doesn't make me embarrassed to be fabric?"

Maybe we've just been watching these things for too long but as open-minded as we try to be, she just got on our last gay nerve. Nobody respects those who joyfully fly their freak flag more than us, but there's travelin' to the beat of a different drum and then there's going out of your way to make sure everyone knows you're different.

"Yay, she's got big feet like me!"

"Yeah! Maybe she'll show up dressed like a superhero clown too!"

"My garment, I feel, does not fulfill the stereotype of the typical red carpet gown."

No, honey. That's not quite accurate. Your garment was not a red carpet gown at all. Like we said, go your own way (Jesus, what's with all the classic rock lyrics in this post?) but there was a challenge to be had last night and you didn't just put your twist on it; you ignored it to produce something that had nothing to do with it. She was about as on point with her look as if she had faithfully reproduced a Major League Baseball uniform and called it a gown.

Look, we're all for the conceptual stuff, especially in a competition like this. It adds some interest and some tension to the show. Our main problem with her look last night was that SHE HAD NO CONCEPT. Unless you count "I'm going to ignore what I was asked to do" as a concept.

Part of what makes Project Runway interesting is that with each challenge, very strict guidelines and restrictions are imposed on the designer and the fun comes in watching how they remain creative and true to themselves within those boundaries. We have no problem with her idea of quilted hexagons to form a dress, nor did we have a problem with a hoodie. Those elements, while outside the norm, could still have worked on, say, something gown-length and fitted.

Model: Erika Macke

But she produced something that, at first glance, was obviously not meant to be worn on a red carpet. Not even Juliette Lewis at a benefit to raise funds for Courtney Love's facial reconstruction would show up wearing this thing. Bjork would just roll her eyes and say "Please. I have an image to uphold."

Taken on its own, it's ... well, okay, we guess. It's still pretty ugly. But if you ignore that she tried to pass this off as a red carpet look and take it on its own merits, it's interesting at least.

But that's it. That's as far as our compliments go. Interesting, yes. Also, ugly. The pleating on the bottom was sloppy and took the textural interest too far. Those bloomers...y'know, we're shocking ourselves with what just popped into our heads. Those bloomers are actually a little cute. The problem is that they don't go with the silver piece at all. There's just too much going on here. Again, it feels like she's screaming about how she's such a unique little snowflake at the top of her lungs instead of quietly producing something that challenges people's expectations.

Don't even get us started on the weirdness that's going on around her neck. We don't even know what the hell that is.

And finally, the worst sin of all, it was TERRIBLY executed. If you want to go out on a limb, go there, but make damn sure you produce something impeccable when you do.

But kudos to the judges, because we were convinced they were going to see "point of view" and keep her in the competition. Even Lindsay was having none of it:

"But the person that's wearing it has to love it more because you can make it all you want but you gotta make sure someone is going to buy it."

Say what you will about LiLo, but she was dead on there. Of course, the real joy came in watching the master:

"Ari, is it? Ari, let me read off my score card for you:

'Ha. Hahaha. Haha.

Ha."

"You see where I'm coming from, don't you, Ari?"

"I want her to also go and receive her Nobel Peace Prize on the same night."

"A Nobel Prize, you say? For what? Did she bring about peace in the middle east by getting them all to drop their guns and fall over laughing?"

"I'm an adorable little pixie of unconventionality!"

"Sweetie, I could crush all your dreams with one hand tied behind my back. I could tear you down so far that you'll spend the rest of your life questioning yourself every time you pick up a needle or pair of scissors. I could induce such a level of self-doubt and post-traumatic stress disorder in you that you will cry every time you pass a fabric store. I am the Goddamn Fashion Director of Marie Claire and I have been there and done that. Don't try and pull a fast one on Aunt Nina.

Now go. Before I change my mind about treating you gently."

"You better run. I can't guarantee she's gonna stay in that chair for much longer."

Oh thank you. THANK YOU.

I've been hitting refresh on the site for the past three hours, just so I could read your thoughts on this disaster.

Glad to know we are in complete agreement.

THANK YOU! :)


I expected her to stay in, too, for all the obvious reasons. Diligently making everyone away of how different you are while turning out crap is a poor strategy.

On another note...didn't she say at one point that she liked to do what the fabric told her to do, then said some other bullshit that contradicted that as she was making her garment?


The Nina-nator is back! Gosh, I missed her so.

Hilarious, as only you guys can be. I genuflect in your general direction.


Nina caps :DDDDDDDDDDDD


They're priceless xDDD thanks so much again, you guys! You're making my day!


Is it a German thing? Why can't Heidi say "Marie"?


La Nina is back! (Sorry, I can;t do a tilde on this machine.)

Damn beehive pajamas trying to think they're red carpet worthy.


I was sure the judges were going to keep her just to see what she'd come up with next. But I'm so glad they didn't. She was definitely grating. Your analysis, as always, is spot on.


I had to put up with all that James-Paul and Ari gets kicked off on the first show?


sorry for posting again in such a short time, but Nina's face on the second image of her just makes me roll on the floor laughing xDDD


That had me spitting my tuna sandwich all over my monitor!

Didn't realize how I missed those "Nina-isms" until now. You guys are the greatest!

SisterZip


oh my gosh! La Nina is baaaaack!!!!!'
thank you for that, it was hilarious!!!
next time I have to close my office door so my colleagues don't come running to see what's going on! :-)


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

'Bjork would just roll her eyes and say "Please. I have an image to uphold."'

You two are on fire! (The cocaine & energy drinks must have kicked in.)

You guys are spot-on. There's eccentric like Elisa in Season 4, and then there's Ari, clearly playing to the cameras.

And just seeing her 'geodesic dome' laid out for Tim - I knew La Nina would just toy with her like a cat with a mouse....

Does anyone else think part of her auf was due to her resembling LiLo's ex? Just wondering! :)


The funny thing is that I can hear Nina and Heidi saying those words in my head now.

Also, is it just me, or does Ari resemble Sam Ronson a bit?


But it was from the David Beckham/Desmond Tutu Collection - come ON!


Ari reminded me of a character that Doon Mackichan would have played on the British sketch show Smack the Pony.


The best thing about watching your show is reading TLo blog. During parts of the 3.5 hours of Project Runway goodness, I kept thinking of how you two would write the Nina captions and rip the designers.

Love your humor and I'm going to refresh this page every hour. Thanks guys!


That 2nd screencap of Nina is gold. Pure, uncut gold.

I was giddy with anticipation of just how the divine Ms. G would skewer the little waif. She did not disappoint.


Yay! Nina-caps are back! How I've missed them.

And yes, glad to see they didn't keep her around just because she's 'quirky' and 'conceptual' or whatever.


In what universe does a major league baseball team wear uniforms like that?

Perhaps you were thinking that the straight quilting reminded you of the home plate umpire's codpiece that protects that most sensitive of areas from an errant fast ball.

Or perhaps you were thinking of the chest protectors that the catcher uses. Neither feature honeycomb patterns.

To me, she looked like she was wearing one of those space blankets that NASA wraps satelites in whilst in the Shuttle cargo bay.

Maybe in 2030, that will be high runway fashion, complete with hoodie to protect you from the paparazzi. And, quite frankly, I'm surprised Ms. Fish didn't mention that feature.

However, the most arresting part of last night's exchange was Ms. Fish's uncanny resemblance to Ms. Lohan's current amour.

Perhaps LiLo was taking a bit too much joy in her criticism.


See, now THIS was the biggest problem with the All Star reunion last night: Nina was NICE. Thank God she recovered from her amnesia in time for the first episode of PR.


They didn't say it looked like a MLB uniform. Re-read it.


Love the screencaps with Nina and Tim. And love a post that mentions Juliette Lewis, Courney Love, and Bjork in the same paragraph! ROFL! I've missed you so!


Did anyone else think Ari looked just like Sam Ronsen???? I thought she'd get by to next week on that but maybe the producers are going to be more serious this year about talent and less about personality for ratings. If so, THANK JESUS! If I want to watch no-life, irresponsible individuals, I believe MTV still makes Real World episodes!


"A Nobel Prize, you say? For what? Did she bring about peace in the middle east by getting them all to drop their guns and fall over laughing?" hahahaha. Classic

I'm so glad she was auf'd. She was getting on my nerves and it was only episode 1.

YES!!! TFF!!

this is why I love y'all so!! what i've missed so much - TLO screen caps with what we know Nina musta been thinking.

seriously, i was rooting for this one to be auf'd from the very beginning. just a little too much, IMO. and was very, very concerned that the producers would keep her on for the dramatic elements and her personality type... she had none of Elisa's charm that made her kookiness so fun & lovable in Season 4.

I felt sorry for Erika, her model, because she had to know that what she was wearing was gonna wind up at the bottom. am keeping my fingers crossed to see Lady Q & Erika do better next week!

Muchas Gracias TLo for working so hard to keep us, your loyal fanbase, so ecstatically happy!

srq


I know this hasn't been mentioned yet, but isn't Ari a dead-ringer for Blohan's ex-girlfriend Sam Ronson?

Sorry. I haven't slept much.


Wow, the new producers aren't so into the whole manipulation thing. I thought for sure that Ari would be around for a couple weeks so that we get more wackiness. Unless they are trying to promote the cuteness factor this time around.


I have to give myself a small pat on the back. Way beck when we first saw the cast list for the show, I called her as the first to go home even though all of my friends thought it would be the guy who was inspired by insect anatomy or some such. She was a hoot, but deserved the auf.
I wish Lifetime would lay off all of the fancy camera work while the garments are coming down the runway. Especially with the GIANT logos and designer name banners and such at the bottom, it makes it really hard to get a good look at the garments.


"A Nobel Prize, you say? For what? Did she bring about peace in the middle east by getting them all to drop their guns and fall over laughing?"



ROFL. Love you, darlings, SO much!!!


Welcome Back! Welcome Back! Welcome Back!


Oh THANK you guys - this post is amazing - I've been missing my fantasy play-by-play discussions - and this was one of the best.

And I love my Nina! I knew this show was what my life was missing the first time Nina opened her mouth. "So tell me what red carpet you think your model was walking down....." HAAHAHAHHAHAHAHH


"Tlo said: "Yeah! Maybe she'll show up dressed like a superhero clown too!""




No, I can garauntee she's be tossed out of Clown College as well.

You can't march to the beat of a different drummer if you've got no rhythym. And cynical me thinks that she was actually playing a game, trying to create a reality TV character, and put it together as incompetantly as her garment.

--GothamTomato


You had me at "Bjork would just roll her eyes and say 'Please. I have an image to uphold.'"

And then I got to the Nina caps.

I'm DYING over here!


"Part of what makes Project Runway interesting is that with each challenge, very strict guidelines and restrictions are imposed on the designer and the fun comes in watching how they remain creative and true to themselves within those boundaries."

WORD. Stella did it (to an extent). Laura did it. And I think that if Ari had done it, it could have been a very unusual and pretty dress with the hexagons and the hood. But the hexagons weren't even executed correctly! And the hood was just strange.

She was so off in Ari-land they threw "red carpet" at her and she just decided "...bees from the future." And then she made this...thing.

So glad they gave Mitchel another chance. His dress was unwearable but he clearly has skills and basic design sense, something that Ari honestly lacked.

And as always, the Nina caps were hilarious. So glad this show is back. :)


"BG said: On another note...didn't she say at one point that she liked to do what the fabric told her to do"





Call me kooky, but I think that if the fabric said anything, it would be nothing but a blood-curling scream, as it was being cut on the work table.

Masterful, gents. Words can't express the joy you bring me. Bravi and thank you!


best. friday. ever.

thanks boys!

as always you always leave me LMFAO!


Wonderful way to start off the weekend: with hilarity. Thanks guys :)


Desmond on Lost is the one and only precious little snowflake!

If only she had made it just a tad longer, so that she could claim it was a dress; an ugly, poorly-executed, tootie-flashing dress, but at least an actual dress, I'm pretty sure they would have kept her kooky ass over the naked pegnoir.


HERE is where TLo excells!

Lovelovelove the screencaps with the "revisionist history" This sh*t is just too damn funny.

Thanks for the laugh while I'm stuck here @ work....


Oh... the Nina caps... it's like Christmas! Thank you!


"Like we said, go your own way (Jesus, what's with all the classic rock lyrics in this post?)"

Please by all means keep it up!

The Nina commentary was brilliant as usual. I was actually interested to see what Ari could do but she didn't follow the challenge and what she made was poorly executed. Auf Ari!


Your LaNina screencaps are priceless! MWAAAAHHH!


Due to power outages around my place (I. was. so. angry) I didn't get to see the full episode; it was out all during All Stars and for the very beginning of the actual premiere, then went out again in the middle of the judging.

I liked where Ari was going at first; when she started quilting those hexagons I immediately envisioned something dramatic, beautiful; a long hexagon-dress, fitted in the bust and flowing around the legs. With a hood, it would have been cute, punk, edgy...and then this hot mess rolled out and I was devastated. She could have done so

So I'm in agreement with you guys about the outfit: total ass. However I will say I think you're wrong about her style; look at some of the getups Jay wore, or even Austin. And that skin-tight, graphic...thing she was wearing brings to mind the collection Christian made for the Sew Not Over challenge...which you guys loved, and I will go as far as to say her outfit was much better than Christian's bizarre ones.

She was overdoing it a little, maybe, with the handstands and whatnot, but otherwise I think she was fine. The cooky-dressed designers often have something interesting to say. Unfortunately this is what she said first and it was pure crap.

Anonymous on 8/21/09 at 2:19 PM, I have never in my whole history of blogging on this board ever called anyone out and doubt if I will ever do it again BUT, I do think you owe James-Paul an apology for mentioning his name in the same sentence with that kook mental patient who forgot to take her medication then conned her way on to PR.
LOL! LOL!

OMG, I have been waiting all day for this inspired screencap of LaNina-TLo, you never disappoint your faithful minions!

I don't think the red carpet event for Ari's design exists in this dimension.


Token straight guy

She broke the cardinal rule of PR - she disrespected Tim. When Tim Gunn says your shit looks like a diaper, you burn it, then pour salt on the ashes and start something completely new.

I was worried they were going to keep her for her crazy-ass-ness (please see figure 1. - vincent), but I knew somewhere deep inside that disrespecting the gunn would not be tolerated so early on.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but aside from the crack they put in Tim's mouth, where did they criticize her personal style?


I've said it before and I'll say it again: Who needs cable when TLo are on the job? This is the second PR season for which we've only had broadcast stations (I've gained an appreciation for "Wipeout"), but as long as you guys are typing what Nina is actually thinking, I don't miss the show itself. Maybe not what the advertisers want to hear, but it's true.


Thank you for the Nina caps!!

Now I have to go clean the spit off my monitor...

8/21/09 2:19 PM I had to put up with all that James-Paul and Ari gets kicked off on the first show?

hehe but PR's version of JP is still there!

SOOO glad she is gone and on the extended video - the judges , contestants, and models are laughing at her. Not because I want to be mean, but because I want some amount of reality and calling it like it is. I hate when they get all "are we just not SMART enough to understand" - oh my this is sounding like JP.

I can't remember who it was, but I recall another contestant just doing whatever the heck he wanted with absolutely no adherence to the challenge.

And to anyone who wants Mitchell gone, it probably wil happen soon - unless he really did fall apart with the measurements.


whew! i was so glad the judges were reasonable and sent her packing...i was afraid that they were going to keep her around for at least a few weeks for the wack-factor...

that "thing" was truly awful! i too get pushing the boundaries, and it might have worked if she had actually executed it well, but it was really poorly constructed. and i agree that the coller/hood thing was just weird, and the shorts were kind of cute, but they looked like a last minute "oops, i guess i have to give her something to wear on the bottom since i didn't make this long enough to cover her ass..." and what was that ridiculous garbage about going to pick up her nobel peace prize in that???? i bet the peace prize people would immediately retract the award if someone had the audacity to show up in that get-up....

bye bye ari!!


Hahahahahahahahahaha! Snort!

NinaCaps - I have SOOOO missed them!


Totally agree. I was rooting for her to be auf'd. I was afraid the producers would keep her around for the drama factor but she drove me nuts. So glad the show is back and with it the great TLo posts!


Thank God PR is back on! This post was delicous! I was going to cut and paste my favorite lines out of it but it would make my little post tooooo long!

Thanks fellas!! :)

xoxoxoox


The model looked like she was doing Judy Robinson's walk of shame back to the Jupiter 2 the morning after a really rough night of partying with Major Don West, Dr. Zachary Smith and the Robot.


Oh, and the NinaCaps?

Delicious.

I never tire of them.


I had an issue from her since you posted her profile a month or so ago. She screamed someone who was going to go out in the first couple of shows, I'm glad it was the first show. I was waiting for a referee to come out and give her a red card for non regulation soccer balls on the runway.


TLo Alternate PR World Screen Caps. Blogging gold.


The bloomers may be cute, but I can't help but wonder if she might have saved herself had she nixed the bloomers and made a skirt out of the same fabric as the bodice instead.


Nina-caps. Thank-you. Ever so much.

I actually had high hopes when it was an armadillo-looking hoodie/roll and some silver hexagons on the work table. Dashed.

One down, another 3 or 4 weeks of culling and I'll be able to wrap my head around the remaining designers.


another laura

"Disco soccer ball." Priceless.


Joe J.--
I agree. A skirt would have saved her from the auf. It would have communicated to the judges that she was paying some attention to the challenge.


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

"You have to take risks responsibly." (As said by Ari on the bonus video.)

Totally sounds like one of those serious condom/safe sex PSAs, doesn't it?

Are there condom machines in the TLounge?

In any case, NOBODY'S gettin' laid in Ari's get-up....


The outfit scared me in so many ways.

I was a little sad though, because her model is super pretty and probably will get aufed in the next episode.


I! Freaking! Love! You! Guys!

I knew I could count on you for the screen cap of Tim's face after that big feet comment. I rewound and watched that exchange at least five times, and ditto for Nina's opening remark to Ari. Pure comedy gold. I *almost* wished she hadn't been auf'd, just because I could imagine the endless comedy that would result. But the truth is, the sloppy execution would have muted the comedy pretty quickly.


I knew from the moment Ari said, "I don't sketch" she was out. Ari had this whole Daniel Franco thing going on w/ her, so the more I watched her the more I thought, "Auf Wiedersehen!"


Someone mentioned Sam Ronson earlier. I thought Ari's resemblance was going to get her passed thru to the next round but alas, maybe the girls were fighting that day...

As for the design? Meh. I've seen a lot worse come down that runway and not get the boot. I thought they like to keep the "creative point of view" person, so the auf threw me a bit.

Hahahahahahaha! Love the Lost in Space reference. Thanks, Bill.

And ditto what he said about the NinaCaps.


Add me to the list of peeps who hit refresh about a million times this morning/afternoon waiting for the post about the first auf'ing.

First, "what do we do if we don't sketch?!?!?!" You STFU and let the others designers actually get some work done.

I was looking forward to what Ari would have produced but then she basically presented a sleevless puffy coat.

After looking back through her design portfolio and even her short stint last night I wonder what is up with the neck clothing?? Does conceptual always mean "how much fabric can I wrap around your neck?"


Sigh.....I wanted her to stay, for at least one more episode. As ridiculous as her garment was, at least it was interesting. I wanted to see Ari make one more thing, to determine whether she actually has something to offer and this was just a fluke. Even Blayne turned out a couple of attractive looks, given the chance. Mitchell's dress was a hot mess in the first place, and a nothing dress on the re-try.


Air kisses thank you so much TLO your so good to your loyal minons.

Bill your judy walk of shame was spot on.


Loving it! Thanks again for making PR so much more than just a show. Also I had to laugh-FINALLY someone actually says "Mary Claire" (as it is called in Europe and UK), but since it's Heidi it sounds more like "Mawy Claiwe". Close enough I guess.
So much time has passed and TLO are better than ever. It's like that stellar wine you just waited to open for exactly the right event, and it was even better than you'd hoped. Thanks guys. And congrats on your Lifetime.com blog!


Yes, Ari's calculated-eccentricity was completely insufferable.

When one makes it their life's goal to banish all "stereotype"-- be it red-carpet propriety, classic sewing technique, or linear thinking-- the resulting persona is neither fascinating or uncommon. Groovy hipsters identical to Ms. Fish are as common as dirt.

It's laudable to be a genuine "free thinker", the trouble with Ms. Fish and her kind is that they flail around thoughtlessly, embracing anything and everything they suppose non-sterotypical, as if they could leapfrog a thought-process altogether though random perversity.

Unusual is not synonymous with good.


well, regarding Ari's "I don't sketch" thing, Jubilee Jumbles had exactly the same "method" and they kept her around for quite a while.... but I guess that now with different producers things changed x)


I'm actually very disappointed, I thought she was going to stick around a little longer; I thought she had an interesting point of view.


The Nina-caps are too hilarious. Gee, how I have missed them!!
You guys are so good to us!!
Thanks for bringing a ray of sunshine into a rainy, miserable day here in "sunny" Florida.


Not one word about how Ari looks almost exactly like Samantha Ronson? NOT ONE WORD? Disappointments!


Not one word about how Ari looks almost exactly like Samantha Ronson? NOT ONE WORD? Disappointments!

Actually, at least three people have mentioned it so far...


Maybe we should fix a meetup between Ari and Blayne. Those two seem to have a lot in common. Throw in Lupe, too.


SOOOO happy to read your post. You nailed Ari, that's for sure. That pixie from Kansas City disappointed me...I mean really let me down. Dang. On a happier note: The Runway Is Back!


I must say that I was a bit surprised at the auf-ing. She's kooky and weird, and they usually keep kooky and weird contestants around for at least a couple more challenges.

It's a shame. I thought she was completely adorable - until she opened her mouth.

I wasn't familiar with Sam Ronson, but just googled her, and, sorry, I don't see the resemblance. Just because two young women wear a similar short-haired androgynous look doesn't make them look alike.


Oh, how I missed Nina!
And the TLo NonCap was beyond hilarious.

Blergh. Forced "kookiness" = booooooring. And hexagons? Honey, get out the D&D dodecahedron die and sew those babies together and then I am impressed. Any quilter worth their salt can do hexagons with their eyes closed.


I'm sorry, but the model looks scarily like Carrot Top, which just added insult to injury. SO glad you're back!


Sigh. Sorry to see a hometown girl auf'd so early. According to the local paper, as an artist she has worked in a number of mediums, but had just started sewing a year before she was recruited by PR to be on the show.


I LOVE how in the extended version all the other judges are basically not even listening to Ari's responses and they're just giggling in the background because they KNOW Aunt Nina's taking care of her.


Hahahaha! I missed you guys.


"According to the local paper, as an artist she has worked in a number of mediums, but had just started sewing a year before she was recruited by PR to be on the show."

I thought she was the one Tim said was a really good sewer? Or was that somebody else?


TLo -- I'm not sure if you guys could maybe bring this up to someone at Lifetime, but those pop-ups on the screen are SO annoying. I KNOW that we are watching Project Runway on Lifetime and if I wasn't on the channel...then I wouldn't be seeing your ads. Pointless and distracting.


Bugged the heck by the way she just kept saying "yeah" no matter what they we saying to her.


It will be fun to go back to TLo previous posts and see how well the predictions went on each designer as they are "auffed."

I am a bad predictor overall, but when I saw her collection in the previous post, I did hate "Ari's stuff". It was hard to think of some of them as clothes. If I read their comments correctly, TLo thought she wasn't as out there as she professed to be.

But, in reality, she was out there all right!

Nice to have you blogging about PR again!


Hahahahahahaha Love the Nina recaps, guys!

Well, all I can say is that the right one was sent home.


Damn! I was expecting to see more from her. Oh well...


La Nina is back!!!


My name is Nina, hear me roar!!!!!!!


I don't care how avant-garde your are, you still have to respect your client and focus on the task at hand; she didn't, she meditated instead.


You guys are the best. LOVE LOVE LOVE the screencaps!!

Her model is pretty but she can't walk. I'm surprised Qristyl picked her. I thought she was going home for sure.


I was SHOCKED that the the mandatory token nut job was "aufed." Kudos to the judges!


NOOOOO, not the only lesbian on the show.


I actually thought Qristyl's dress was the worst (tacky and cheap) and that Johnny's was the second worst (ugly). However, they didn't ignore the whole challenge like Ari did. I think Ari could have gotten away with a little more if she had left out the part about the Nobel Peace Prize and said her client was going to the Teen Choice awards.


Oh man.....well ok, I see your point. I still think Naked Caftan should have gotten the Auf.....cuz he didnt make anything!

I am LOVING the extended judging videos! Nina was bringing her A-game with the critique AND keeping a straight face whist everyone was giggling =D heh!

Ari's whole vibe was just so put-on to me. Didn't seem authentic after a while. But I gotta admit.....it was hilarious to see her rummage around the model's crotch in her attempt to "explain" her dress to Nina! HAHAHAH


Good riddance, we do not need another Blayne EVER!


This dress was the Jubilee Jumbles of the season already. Oh, and I loved the eye roll the model gave Ari when she was teasing her hair, and Ari said, "Don't worry. I'll try not to damage your hair." UGH!

It was a hot, hot, hot mess. And, yes, she was so annoying. "What if I don't sketch?" (Goes over to wall and does handstand.) Give me a break! And what was with all her outfits? She looked like a reject from Romper Room. Poor dear.

I will say she's cute as a button, and loved her hair. Can't completely tear her apart.

I just cannot express to you all enough how happy I am that PR is back and that TLo are in fine, fine form. This season is going to be fun, I can tell.

I already love Epperson. He had little to say or do, but the few choice glances he was giving out last night told me all I need to know. I'm shocked his dress wasn't in the top 3.


"I had to put up with all that James-Paul and Ari gets kicked off on the first show?"

Loves it!

But oddly, I kind of liked that hoodie business. Like, you know, as an outfit for a video game character or something. i wanted her gone as much as anyone, I think, but I thought that Johnny's was the real loser of the night.


I find the Nina caps aesthetically pleasing. They are cohesive. They have a point of view. They tell a story. That. Women. Want. To. Hear.

At least this woman does! Welcome back, La Chica! Great job, TLo! Your version of Nina is the best thing about PR!


the model probably can walk, that outfit must have been so awkward to walk in. what the heck are the shorts about?

The exact thing I was thinking.

Was she really that stupid?

LESBIANS, LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE GAME!!!!


While I think her looks was WRONG on many levels but I think the comment that Nina made about "Smocked Nude dude" should have been made about Ari. I would have liked her to stay jsut to see what she could potentially do but I can't be appauled by the judges decision.

BTW I know it's the first show but seriously I swore I heard Nina half compliment that smocked see thru pantyhose dress..... WTF is that about????


god bless you for the multiple updates today! spot on with everything. welcome back!


Probably the right decision, though I do think an unwearable "dress" was a far worse crime against fashion.

And I didn't get the vibe that Ari (did anyone notice she looks like...oh, wait, you've already heard that one) was a calculated, made-for-TV nut job. She struck me as being genuinely, happily out there, and I think I would have enjoyed seeing her stick around a little longer, if only to see how she would mutilate a few more sets of challenge directions. It was like she has fashion dyslexia.


I've been waiting in delicious anticipation for these exact screencaps since La Nina uttered the words "And what red carpet..." last night.

Thank gods for you, TLo, who understand that with great power comes great responsibility.

Bonnie


TLo - Thank you so much for the NinaCaps! Best. Thing. EVER. And I'm really glad that you put in that one of Heidi at the end. I saw that when it aired, and I said "I hope to God that TLo uses that image!"

Joe J. - I thought the exact same thing about a skirt. Possibly ankle-ish length, not necessarily even hemming, and pleated at the top for texture?


I had wondered why she looked so familiar and then I remembered she's a performance art crew costume-y type designer. I generally assumed she was going to get eliminated because she was going to pull some "out there" shit that was pointless. As artsy tartsy as she is, I'll defend her to say she makes some fun stuff for Ssion even though her clothes are impractical and not so much about "taste" as just being very art school-esque and fun.

But yeah, her ass needed to go home. I didn't really see how Meth Addict's dress was red carpet appropriate just because the shape would be difficult to look well in a photograph. But I don't know, not enough camera time or good lighting for the clothes! I hope he'll stop breaking down as much as that other guy who "doesn't judge the carpets" or whatever the fuck it was.


"BTW I know it's the first show but seriously I swore I heard Nina half compliment that smocked see thru pantyhose dress..... WTF is that about????"

No kidding. I was wondering whether it was really my imagination, or the judges are really being a lot nicer this season.


"If I want to watch no-life, irresponsible individuals, I believe MTV still makes Real World episodes!"

... and so does Bunin-Murray?


Welllllll,

As much as hated Mitchell's see thru caftan and his behavior with the model(s) - for some odd reason, I had this weird vibe that if that had been any color but beige, and less sheer, it would have seemed like something from the red carpets or Hollywood in, I don't know the late sixties ??

Does anyone know the kind of dress I am thinking of?


@ anotherLaura-- YES!
Although the Ninacaps made my night (I spent the commercial breaks reading some of my old favorites to my boyfriend so he would understand why I was as excited about the blog as the show), I was so sad that the Duchess didn't get any coverage! Disco-soccer ball = priceless.


I knew she was gone as soon as I found out she didn't sketch (which was a few weeks ago).


PERFECTION!!!!!!! (recap of course, not the quilted soccerball)


i'm not dorothy gale

Hilarious screencaps, boys! I read in the local paper that she is currently in Berlin helping a friend set up an exhibit. It was smart of her to blow out of town when PR aired. Young and lalalala is one thing but crap craftsmanship is quite another.

To say nothing of the shame of the entire panel laughing behind their hands...or maybe they were talking about OompaLoompa Kors.


Though I wish that I could've seen more of Ari's work in the upcoming episodes, as I thought her outfit was pretty cool, I definitely think that her bad execution and lack of sketching were good enough reasons to auf her, as everyone else said.

And for the millionth time...she looks exactly like Sam Ronson!!


You know, it's OK to be different, but it's quite another thing to make a loud exclamation point for the sake of the cameras. It's not hard to notice as later seasons roll on that some of our designers are looking to stand out for the sake of being memorable. That's cool....if you can bring crazy talent, too. Sorry, Ari. It would have been fun to see more of her conceptual design, but I think they made the right decision.


I wish just the once a real weirdo would make it all the way to the finals. (deservedly so, I mean, not by pure luck)

I was hoping Ari would be that weirdo.

Oh, well. There's always Season Seven!


YAY!! The Nina screen caps!!! It's like Christmas in August!!!!!

Thank you, Santa!!
XXOO


"I definitely think that her bad execution and lack of sketching were good enough reasons to auf her, as everyone else said."

I don't think anyone said that lack of sketching was a reason to auf her. Why should it be? Sketching isn't a requirement. It's just something that most designers find useful. If a person designs and makes great clothes without sketching, then it doesn't matter. If they design and make bad clothes, then it equally doesn't matter whether they sketched or not.


OK, I just watched all the extended Tim Gunn workroom videos on that divine Lifetime site (Bravo, take note of what they're doing), and it's so sadly apparent from the level of the dialogue he had with Ari compared to practically everyone else that she just wasn't functioning at the same level of technical or aesthetic competency. Bummer.


is it weird that i kept thinking that ari looks like samantha ronson??! haha good timing with lilo as judge...

and yes, THANK THE HEAVENS that the judges kicked off someone who would otherwise make 'great' tv.


PS - The bloomers were darling and she seems like a sweet kid. I kinda liked what she was wearing, though she should've ditched the shorts over her unitard 'cause that's a 70s look that deserved to die.


Guys, this was unfreaking believable. I'm living vicariously through you both at the moment as I haven't been able to see the episode and I don't think the actual dialog could ever live up to that. Thank you, thank you, thank you for ending my night with almost tear inducing laughter filled post!


I think I might be a minority of one but I really wanted them to keep Ari around. How many episodes did Blayne stay for Pete's sake until he was finally Auf'd for the pooping fabric challenge? I think Ari would never have produced an uninteresting look and I think she had potential to really hit it out of the park. I was so bored by a few of the red carpet looks including the dark blue dress that was in the high score group. Ari's downfall I suspect is she has no middle ground between ground-breaking and Seriously WTF and we caught her on one of her latter days.

I complain but it was sooo good to see the show back and looking the same as ever.

8/21/09 7:45 PM


my mistake.


When we saw that she was from KCMO, my husband and I were horrified to have our area represented by someone wearing an outfit that looked cobbled together from scraps out of Richard Simmons's closet. I barely noticed that quilted abomination she sent down the runway because I was too busy staring at the 'outfit' she was wearing. My husband described it perfectly: "That's not a print, that's f**ing APHIS!"


You guys continue to rock my world.


It has got to be the bottom of the barrel to have LINDSAY LOHAN say to you, "You have to know what's appropriate." Lindsay Lohan, appropriate, Muhahaha.


Did anyone notice she looked just liked samantha ronson?


I've waited so long for your Nina captions...it's like coming home to a big pot roast and mom's apple pie. Thank you, TLo!


" Again, it feels like she's screaming about how she's such a unique little snowflake at the top of her lungs instead of quietly producing something that challenges people's expectations."



And THAT my darlings is why I love you.


I was surprised (but glad) to see that the judges used their collective experience to kick the nut job off at the first challenge. Every season seems to have one, and they stay well past the time that they are interesting anymore. I'll bet that they agreed that Ari just wasn't serious about being a designer, but it was edited out. I, too, thought she'd stay longer because she's cute and may bring something interesting to the group, but the judges were having none of that. Good for them!


Hey, she looked like Samantha Ronson!

Just kidding.

But I was hoping she'd be smart enough to say, "This is for someone to wear to the Kid's Choice Awards!" Because that might not have worked, but it would have been just enough of an unexpected curve that it might have been interesting to see how the judges would have responded.

Okay, they would have ignored, but still. At least it would have shown an attempt to save herself.


In addition to the dress, I just think that the hair, makeup and boots really complete this crazy look. At first glance, I thought to myself -- "Rocky Horror Picture Show."


Her dress was super fabulous. I thought they'd keep her around just to see what she'd do next but gosh they kept the dude that let his model walk down practically naked. That was surprising. Even if he had the right measurements for his model, the piece (esp. the neck) would still look horrible.


LOL!

Yes, I was very happy the judges didn't go with the "Well, at least she sort of finished" argument for keeping her.


Between the last two on the runway, she deserved to go home. But the worst dress on the runway last night belonged to the crystal meth guy.


Someone always has to be the first to go, and this was a good choice. I don't think it was specifically the non-sketching method, but what was produced.

Michael's face in the extended judging reminded me of myself in staff meetings when someone says something completely ridiculous and I'm trying so hard not to laugh.


Marie - In Europe Marie Claire is pronounced the way Heidi says it.


I totally agree with T&LO and with the judges BUT I think Ari's problem started with the "I don't sketch." That only meant I don't have an idea in my head but I will purchase fabric. That means I will buy fabric for a long dress but now that I actually have the fabric I will make double sided hexagons which means I now have half the length of the fabric and since I didn't plan ahead of time to begin with Not only don't I have enough for a long gown, I don't have enough for a short one either (not to mention that I like to spend lots of yardage around the neck area. Let's try to fix that with "out of the box" shorts and call it a day.

I don't think it that the fact that she didn't address the challenge matter as much as her inability to execute her idea, let alone focus on it. If she did an impeccable job the way Nina likes it, they would have kept her. The fabric was a good choice. The styling left a lot to be desired. But if she made this well, coupled it with crazy shorts but from the same material, gave her some killer shoes and an elegant finish, she could have kept herself in the competition. But if Sweet Pea's work was deemed "home-made" there was no chance that this could be excused in any shape or form.


Something occurred to me that maybe has been addressed in seasons past, but I wonder if anyone knows -- when designers are "sent home," do they actually go home? Wouldn't that tip off the locals, if they are suddenly back at their home studio cranking out work, that they were auf'd?

Or does the production put them up somewhere until after the final eliminations, so everyone returns home at the same time, with a non-disclosure clause sealing their lips?


Ari: "My model has big feet like me!!!"
Tim: "Yes!" *what-a-moron-let's-move-on-please face*

Easily one of my favorite moments in ProjRun history.


TheNYCourier: "I know this hasn't been mentioned yet, but isn't Ari a dead-ringer for Blohan's ex-girlfriend Sam Ronson?"

First thing I noticed -- she looks exactly like her. Bzzt, you just got voted off, and no, I don't need to see your clothes!

Her garment and personality were appalling, but still.


Tim said to the woman who wanted to cut her own fabric that she had to buy a pair of scissors. I thought that was strange, there was only one guy there cutting the fabric and only minutes left. Thought they would lend out scissors instead of charging for them. One guy to cut fabric for 40 people in a half hour is not enough time, they should of had more staff there to help.


Is it just me, or was there a helluva lotta FUG going down that runway last night? I was surprised, tho, that they said Ra'mon's was safe when it was light years more creative than Danny V's Iman dress -- let's get serious. Why does everything have to be "innovative" for the judges to respond positively to it?
As for this particular travesty, Queen Kors was dead on with his critique. Pretty awesome. Aufweiderweinerschnitzel, Miss Fish.


Since I've been watching this blog since it was just a baby, I've resolved to finally start commenting. =)

First! Excellent to see you back. I'm in Korea (and have to catch eps after they air, which is lame beyond lameness) and I read you guys every day to stay updated on all things fierce stateside.

Second, I really wanted to see if Ari could marry her aesthetic to future challenges. She seemed like she had a lot of potential, but I agree that the whole "tra-la-la, HEADSTAND!" persona was pretty superfluous.


What is it with the color silver (or grey) that EVERYBODY had to use it? (Well, yes, not EVERYBODY, but it was kind of prevalent.)

I can't imagine Mitchell will last very long. I thought his original dress was even more hideous than what he sent down the runway.

I also thought Qristyl's and Johnny's sucked. Why did the judges like Johnny's? Malvin's was not much, either.

Other than that, it seems like there is a reasonable level of competence this year. I thought Ra'mon's, Althea's, Carol Hannah's, Gordana's, Shirin's, Irina's (I think), Christopher's, and Epperson's all had merit. Some of the others show promise--maybe straight guy, for instance. The jury is out on a couple of them (Nicolai, for one)' I'll even give Qristyl another chance.

It'll be interesting to see what they do when they throw them a real curveball. What's up for next week?

(It seems to me that the producers are letting the judges make the decisions, for the most part, and thus didn't keep Ari.)


FYI folks, she was doing yoga, which at the upper levels involves headstands. It's supposed to clear your mind although, in this case, it didn't seem to work.

Secondly, I hope Mitchell thanked some divine entity for his scerwed up measurements because if he had sent his original dress down the runway the auffing would've been much more difficult to decide as his first dress was no more red carpet worthy than Ari's. And wasn't he the one that said red carpet events is what got him into fashion? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

I wish they had let Ari spend some more time with the show and yes she was edited to look annoying so that people would be happy she was the first auffed and it worked because it seems most of you were happy with her removal. And I adore how superficial our society has become; five minutes of small screen exposure and droves of people psychically conclude she's annoying. She didnt say anything mean, didn't disrespect other designers, and had a very positive attitude. I'm sure if I followed any one of you around for 48 hours filming your every move I could come up with a reel to make you look like a bitch, an idiot, or amazingly annoying--even though you are not--with little effort by only showing 2 to 3 minutes of questionable behavior from those two days. And yes, I am a huge fan of the Runway series. So much so, I've watched every foreign version, that are in English, too--PR Canada, PR Australia (the currently airing second season is one of the best PR outings ever), and the UK's Project Catwalk. Didn't know those existed? Google torrent and azureus and you can watch telly from around the world without commercials.


Y'know, maybe they would have let her stay if it wasn't so BADLY DONE! The smocked nightgown was sure a nightmare of excuses, but at least the boy can sew.

These hexagons aren't all hexagonal, they are puckered and pulled, and her fabric clearly had some kind of flaw--maybe grease marks?--see the lines on some of the pieces? And she not only used those pieces, one of them ended up smack dab in the center front. Or maybe that's some kind of secret alien code I just don't get.


she was so pretentious and just came across as stupid. that nobel peace prize line made me want to rip her pixie hair out.

Uh...I'm pretty sure most of us know those existed. Just like I'm pretty sure most of us know what yoga is. But thanks, Ari.

Nor do I !! I would also add Jeffrey to the weirdo category, too.


I was so afraid they were going to fall for her bullshit and put her through like they did Elisa.

Sad thing is, she could have made that galactic soccer ball into a ball gown had she just made a skirt. She could have saved herself and let the guy with the sheer drapery go home instead.


I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the 'woe me' stories that seem to accompany any U.S reality TV show these days. It's not about your tough upbringing or your addiction, it's about whether you can design clothes. Of course you need to have a 'character' to bring out drama in the show, but this doesn't need to be through tugging (in my case) imaginary heartstrings. The Australian PR, in terms of design, drama, humor and real pathos, leaves the US version for dead. And I promise I'm not Australian...


BOYS! this is why i love your blog.

i missed the nina screencaps so much!


I. Missed. You.

OMG, I can't even tell you. Sorry, the IssacM posts, and the Virgin/Vixen and ShellyO's stupid belts pale in comparison to your lovely fill-in-the-blanks.

Nina: Ha.

Classic.


See, and here I was thinking Nina was actually treating Ari NICELY on the show - saying stuff like "I appreciate that you're conceptual" or something like that before saying that Ari's poor model looked like a train wreck.


I don't know how the camera avoided any one laughing at that outfit. It was horrible.


Having grown up in a geodesic dome, I had a lot of hope when she mentioned that as a inspiration. In fact, if she had sent a model out in a bubble skirt that looked like my parents' house, I would have forgiven her just about anything. But, let's face it, that was just hexagonal quilting pieces made into an ugly top.


The only thing on par with the WTF-ness of this outfit would be Angela's nearly-as-incomprehensible Black & White Challenge creation with that crazy Elizabethan collar and 30 yards of extra fabric in the model's purse.


"Nels said: But I was hoping she'd be smart enough to say, "This is for someone to wear to the Kid's Choice Awards!""





She could have said it was for the Red Carpet at the Dairy Barn Quilt National and it wouldn't have mattered.

--GothamTomato


Yay, screencaps! I'm not sure LiLo's comment about Ari's dress putting her on the worst-dress list was a put-down. If GFY is an indication, she aims for the worst-dressed category. Still, LiLo was more articulate than expected.


Hey Laura,
Loved your PR Nutjob Hall of Fame. It brought back lots of great memories -- flowerpots as hats, spitsmarks instead of tailor tacks, tugboat captains and the like.

In just one episode, Ari made it onto your list -- quite an accomplishment considering the others already on it.

Where does one purchase a psychedelic unitard these days? We know she didn't make it herself, based on the sewing skiils that executed the disco soccer ball.

It's such a pleasure to be watching,reading and writing about PR again.


I don't even know why they had her on there in the first place; given her previous work, it was pretty clear that she would have a hard time doing "normal" fashion.

I didn't get the impression at all that she was putting on an act for the show, either.

And to make her go home but allow "I'm going to do a ton of smocking without knowing what size my model REALLY is"? I don't even sew and I knew that that was a bad idea. There have been so many times when designers on PR who had already fitted their models in person had to rip out seams to make it fit...


My first thought on seeing what Ari was working on: Wow, the puffy honeycomb look would make a marvelous bedspread for my master bedroom.

My last thought on Ari's dress as she got auf'd: Wow, the puffy honeycomb look would make a marvelous bedspread for my master bedroom.

She was so far off the mark that you couldn't even imagine that "fabric" she was creating in ANY kind of red carpet look.


She could of done so much more with that. I think it would of looked good if she had spent more time constructing the shapes, made it more fitted and lengthened it. But nope, she went for straight bats**t crazy there.

I have so missed Nina and her faces.


that painfully prolonged hiatus of PR has done something good for you boys - you are more than usually on fire with the screencaps, etc!
and i giggled rather fiercely at: "go your own way (Jesus, what's with all the classic rock lyrics in this post?)" because really - ANY reference to classic rock lyrics is about the last thing I expect here.

Props to the judges for calling bullshit when they see it, and not falling for the "point of view" crap. I felt very nervous when michael said "maybe i'm not smart enough to get it."


Just read Jays blog. He said that he was suprised that Lindsay did not throw Ari a bone because she looks so much like Samantha Ronson.
oh my god he is so right. I was trying to figure out who she looked like. She really does look like Sam.


I would have kicked Ari off just for wearing her OWN fugly outfits - I almost had a seizure when I saw what she had on for the runway show. I don't even know who MAKES fabric like that, it was truly scary. She looked like she got expelled from Clown College for being too extreme.


Martin Scribbler

Ari, Queen of the Space Jugglers, the girl for everyone who felt Loopy Lupe and Elisa were way too grounded and commercial.


oh, your La Nina screencaps are priceless as always, boys. thanks for the hard work - hope you caught up on your sleep over the weekend :)


I know this hasn't been mentioned yet, but isn't Ari a dead-ringer for Blohan's ex-girlfriend Sam Ronson?

That's who she resembled! I noticed that Ari had "pick me" all over her face as soon as Little Miss Lindsey showed her face.

What was going on here? Ari takes the prize for the best nonsequitor in PR history. I love the "PR nutjob hall of fame." Don't forget instant-aufed Jerry from the last Bravo series. Lifetime could air a program that features all of them. It would be like Leno's Jaywalking all-starts for designers.


What is up with their screening process? Makes me think I (Mrs. HOMESEWN) should apply for PR next season- maybe I'll get an "interesting" and a magical hug from Tim Gunn- I'm sure my four kids can feed themselves.........


Someone needs to tell Miss Dumb Bum that the VMA's are in early September and the Nobel prizes are announced in early October, but the award ceremony isn't until December. If you're going to try to fascinate us with a nerdy inspiration, get the details right. Jeez!


Anyone else think Ari looked a bit like Lindsey's ex-girlfriend?


I know I am 3 days late- was out of town but HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY ....its my FAVORITE thing in LIFE! A Nina/Heidi screen cap post!! THANK YOU BOYS!


From the second Ari first spoke, I said goodbye to her. Everything she said after that just confirmed that she was going to be the first auffed designer.

"What if we don't do sketches?"

What if you're no longer on the show? Yeah, both those things are now true.


I wonder whether there is any chance that the judges were actually doing us all a favor and cut Ari to save up all from an enitre season of...

"HEY DOESN'T ARI LOOK LIKE.....

For that alone THANK YOU


Man, the model was THIS close to losing her shit during the critique. You can see she's biting her lip as hard as she can.


Oh Ari, Ari, Ari...the spiritual lovechild of Elisa and La Lupe...

We hardly got to know ye. I'd never dream you'd leave in summer...

This is why I love you guys so much!!

I've been laughing so hard at your Nina/Ari exchange I've got tears streaming down my cheeks!

xoxoxox


I heard Nick and Andre joking about how the judging woul dhave worked out differently had the judge been Bai Ling - too funny because I had thought of her when I was trying to figure out who on earth would wear this.


You know, I don't hate it. She definitely deserved to go home. But it would make an interesting top for a gown if tweaked A LOT. Granted, it was ugly and totally wrong for the challenge, but I'm curious about what she thought she was getting herself into. Her previous work was intriguing though...


trying too hard is trying too hard. cannot tolerate people who have to constantly remind everyone around them how different and unique and cool they are.....usually they're the ones they're trying to convince. that space age tinfoil tunic was a mess.

now stop it, you all are keeping me from working!!!


Missed you! Kiss you!


I just kept thinking that her dress + model looked like Crystal Meth Barbarella.


Bjork would just roll her eyes and say "Please. I have an image to uphold."

Thank you for that wonderful line!
As for Heidi saying "Mah-ry" it may have been learning more British style English as opposed to American English. Listen to British speakers pronounce 'Marie Antoinette', most of the time it will come out as Mah-ry--at least in most documentaries with British commentators it does.


Good Morning!!! projectrungay.blogspot.com is one of the most excellent innovative websites of its kind. I enjoy reading it every day. Keep it that way.
