The Duchess is back!

And he's a BITCH!


Okay, no. He's not a bitch, but he DOES bring the bitchiness. We're warning you now: it doesn't give much away except you can see exactly who he's critiquing and since he ain't being too complimentary, you're going to find out one of the teams that wind up on the bottom this week. We can understand not wanting to be spoiled, but you should know that those who click are going to have an advantage this week in the T Lounge contest.



Oh, praise Jesus! We have a judge who can reduce someone to tears again! Because let's face it, no one ever cried hearing "I wouldn't wear that."

And he's spectacular! How I've missed his wonderfully, viciously accurate critiques. Yay!


NotaMondayGirl

OMG I'm first!!

Thank you gawd the Duchess is back and firing on all cylinders! I didn't realize how much I missed him until I heard those magical words: Disco Pumpkin!


That face! That face ain't havin' it. ;)


God Bless America! The bitch is back!! Our long national nightmare is over!!!


lol - Seriously, I am glad to see he's back and am looking forward to judging with absolute relish.


Oh, dear lord, please don't make me feel sorry for Christopher. Amen.


Yea! The bitch is back! And with a killer tan and bubble-gum lipstick, no less. I can't wait for some well-directed Dutchess snark.


Praise the Lord indeed!
Isaac Mizraahi please take notes.


Don't you wonder what his closet looks like? A rack of 22 black blazers, and another with 37 black jeans... and then there's the bureau... And he's so fabulously orange as well... ready for Halloween!!


Thank You Jesus is right! I can't wait until Thursday.


I would say this has less to do with bitchiness on the part of the Duchess and more to do with Christopher just losing it. I mean, the Duchess was expressing dislike, but it did not seem in proportion to Christopher's response. (And I am pretty sure Heidi felt the same way -- did you see her look? Most excellent.)


My cold little heart is just bursting with glee!!!

Haha look at how embarrassed Epperson is to be standing next to Christopher.


YES!! The Duchess is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!
I missed him more than I knew. I can't wait to see him tear into those mediocre designs. Let's see some more tears Christoper!


FUCKING AMEN!!!!!


Poor Christopher : (


Awesome! Now we need Nina back!


Thank GOD!


Now that's judging! And the Duchess ain't even cranked up yet. 'Disco pumpkin' isn't anywhere close to his most scathing line. And it looks like he pulled back some when Christopher started crying. As opposed to Heidi who looked liked she was ready to pounce because he was crying.


Not really that bitchy or even mean in the comments shown here. What the hell Christopher? I think it's the extreme fatigue catching up with (everyone) at this point in the competition. That crying seems so out of left field!


Aww, I love the Duchess.


WTH Christopher?


Okay, I'm not convinced that Michael's actually saying those things to Epperson or Christopher. So often, these teasers are put out and they really bear little resemblance to what actually happened. No one cries over what Michael said....except maybe from exhaustion. I am waiting patiently until the show airs—and then again to see the extended judging. Editing changes so many things.


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

Watched it. Loved it. And a mark that a certain someone hasn't really faced a real critique of their work before. "Did you think they went together?" shouldn't really reduce someone to tears.

Duchess is on fire this week, and I don't care who gets the brunt of it, even if Gordana ends up in his gunsight.


Sleep deprivation, stress + the emotional investment of being judged by someone who actually matters! - and then he doesn't like your work. Poor Christopher. He really didn't want to react so emotionally.

Do you think Mr. Kors realizes what color he films/photographs? And he LIKES it??


I feel bad for Christiopher, well, not really. LOL


I haven't watched the show in a few weeks specifically because Michael & Nina were gone. Now I have a reason to watch again! Hallelujah!


"Wendy said...

You know, you're probably right. Maybe they are the winners.


The Duchess is back! Finally!


YIPPEEE!!!

The bitch is back!!

Don't know what the rest of the episode is gonna be like, but this lil' taste promises more of a return to the PR as we know it.

Can't wait to see the piece that has the Duchess on such a tear. And Christopher in tears.....the boy has gotten a bit much of a pass from the revolving door judges these last few weeks, so it's time for some justice.


Hahahahahahaha. I love how Heidi shows no emotion.


YES!!!!!!!!!!


I know he doesn't mean it as a compliment, but I am kind of in love with the phrase "Disco Pumpkin." Someone needs to use it as a drag name or something.


I think part of Christopher's response has to do with the fact that up until now, he hasn't done any wrong in the judges' eyes. Wake-up call! (If that edit wasn't misleading, and Kors really did say that to Christopher.) WooHoo - Madame is back!


On further reflection and closer examination of the Duchess on film, I must edit a bit and assert that "Disco Pumpkin" should be HIS drag name.


bitchybitchybitchy

Our long national PR season 6 nightmare is over- the Duchess d'Orange is back!

I couldn't pull up the video clip. At this point in the season, I think that exhaustion is coming into play and Christopher was probably a big ole' bunch of nerves when this was going on.

Can.NOT.Wait.

Christopher is our little lamb. :)


Anyway issue with the video is likely due to the browser being used. If you use google chrome or mozilla instead of IE you should be able to get the video up

the later version of IE have comatibility issues with adobe flash player

Gotta love when The Duchess makes someone cry.


Thank GOD! Enough with the celebrity judges!!!!


Cool!


Well, now I'm really looking forward to Thursday.

I'm quite certain the Duchess made Christopher cry like that . . . sweetheart has been one expertly crafted insult away from slitting his wrists all season.


Michael's remarks certainly aren't complimentary, but GET A GRIP, Christopher. Lawdy.


CanIGetYouAnything?

Can't. Wait. Now, can we have La Nina for E8?


If I EVER get a band together, we are naming it Disco Pumpkin. In fact, I love it so much, I would name my house that if I had the kind of house that you would name.


I always felt that Christopher can't take criticism well. He's VERY sensitive.


C'mon Michael, you are the DISCO PUMPKIN! He's really tearing someone a new one although, as others have suggested, it could be creative editing.
That's not really how the Dutchess rolls -- either he had a long, shitty flight to LA or he's channeling Nina! I hope he doesn't become the heavy in La Nina's absence.


Hahahahahahahahahahaha Disco Pumpkin!!!!!!!


Ooooh, bitchy! So glad he's back. Since I don't join in the T-Lounge, felt I could look.


Frikki' awesome!


so so good. and so so orange.


Love his wicked tongue. Go Duchess!

I don't like team challenges, but I'm happy to see the Duchess back.


I'm going to buy something Kors today, from the pure joy of this.

I love the "insane crotch" line, I used it all the time, but I think TLo said "pooping fabric" first in one of their posts. I believe it was when they were talking about Austin's wedding dress.


I found it, it's from the wedding challenge. They actually said "shitting fabric."


"She looks like she's shitting fabric. You just know Michael Kors said the same thing but they edited it out."
http://projectrungay.blogspot.com/2006/12/austin-scarlett-man-of-mystery.html

The funny thing is that Michael Kors does say it later, but in a different episode and season.


So happy he's back!!!!!!!!!!!


Mariana (The Unoriginal)

Thank G-O-D!


Prisoner24601

Finally! I cannot wait to see him back after weeks of boring judges. No Nina next week though? Boo.


I remember Heidi saying, "pooing fabric" ans t was so cute wis her cute vittle accent.


Christopher, you can cry and cut, but as long as you cry and cut at the same rate LOL


As soon as I saw his picture I started singing, "The Bitch Is Back!" And from me, that is the very highest compliment.


I love Christopher :)


Josh said:

Triple platinum all the way. Our opening act will be Disco Soccer Ball.

Anyone here play keyboards? I could very well pull this together, you know...


"The Duchess is back!"


YES!!!!! 'bout fucking time.


An all new Michael Garcia...

no, no, start over.

An all new Nina Kors...

No, NO, take 7.

An all new Disco Pumpkin, Thursday at 10,

followed by Tears on the Runway.






Only on Lifetime!


Like a cold glass of water.


LaFemmeFataleinNY

I remember saying "that crotch is insane" to a friend of mine and she looked at me all confused, she had no idea what I was talking about. Same thing when I say "titscrepancy" to people. HA! I love it!


Hooray, the Duchess and her laser critiques are back!


Christopher does have those "I've reached my limit" sort of expressions that I very unfortunately recognize from my former very, very high-stress job. There's a point at which even the mildest criticism, in the wake of sleep dep, overworking, and trying to get a billion things done by impossible deadlines, can reduce someone to leaking. He looks pretty embarassed by it, so I'm inclined to think it is just that, unlike certain other cryformances in the show's past.

That having been said, I really, really want to know what the heck this outfit looks like; MK sounds like he abhors it.


Oh bliss. Who would've thought I'd ever miss an orange man this much?


Wow, who peed in his Cheerios?


I guess I'm technically challenged today. Click where? When I open this page, there's a gap between the first paragraph and the second but no clickable item. Can someone provide the link please? Or has it been taken down?


Actually, I propose to TLo to add a new category for their TLo Awards: The Disco Pumpkin Award, for the most colorful (good or bad) outfit. Could it be enough to make designers think beyond black and white when they get on the show?


"I know he doesn't mean it as a compliment, but I am kind of in love with the phrase "Disco Pumpkin." Someone needs to use it as a drag name or something."

it's going to be my halloween costume. i just need to find something suitably teal.


HOLY SHIT HE JUST RIPPED THEM EACH TWO NEW ASSHOLES FOR THE ONES THEY ALREADY HAD.


Welcome back Michael. We missed you. Clearly he missed the show as well to come back with such tenacity. First episode I'm excited for all seasonnnnnn!


Weird, to me it seamed spliced with the first show and he was commenting on Ari's creation, the silver disco pumpkin like red carpet dress, with a reaction shot of Christopher ans Epperson.


Fiiiiiiinally! Duchess is back where he belongs...right up there on his high horse er...director's chair :). Hopefully LaNina will be touching down next week.

Where do you "click" to see the extended Kors' judging?

TampaBay


Andre-esque histrionics!

I'm salivating!

And Easy Sewer looks like he's about to slap someone silly!


The duchess rocks! I love his comments and he's never mean, catty and bitchy, yes, but never mean.


He doesn't look too orange : P


JEEZ! WHy are so many out for blood, and why so much glee about Christopher getting bitch slapped? He's been perfectly pleasant. Down Bitches!

I do love the duchess and glad to see him BACK!


Hooray for getting Kors back. But really, I could probably make Christopher cry easily, I'm sure it is no challenge for the Duchess.

So good to have him back!


Speaking about "going together;" human skin and whatever tanning chemical he is using! NOT!

But I'm sooooooo happy Michael is back. Brings the show back up to its normal level of excellence.


I couldn't turn the sound on here at work, so I haven't gotten the full effect yet ... but I really didn't need to hear anything. Based on facial expressions -- YOW.

And yay. :)


Aww poor Christoper *suppresses giggle*.

This should be a good episode.


honesty.not.pc

Awe... the video is no longer available. I wanted my Duchess fix.

that is a shade of orange that is reserved for construction signs and nuclear waste. But it really shines against the black. God I love him.


Poor Christopher! He looks devistated.
He should be thanking his lucky stars Nina wasn't there.


Right Anon -- I'm having no fun with this ass rip fest -- I like my Dutchess catty and snarky not like, "I can't believe you would insult me by walking this shit down the runway" -- if Nina's not there, NINA's NOT THERE!


Kitty
9/29/09 1:26 PM And I am pretty sure Heidi felt the same way -- did you see her look? Most excellent.)



I think her look is actually saying, "Oh great! I'm not the center of attention anymore!"

Not sure what you mean, the video works fine if you watch it on Firefox, at least it works for me; apparently it doesn't work on Internet Explorer, see I don't use IE, but if you don't have Firefox you can watch it on the TV Guide site:

Tlo said that they're checking with Lifetime to see what the problem is.


The bitch is back :)


I miss Michael and Nina so much. the show isn't the same without them.


"desertwind said...

LOL I like Christopher : -)


The duchess is awesome and really freaking says it like it is.


Halle-f*cking-luia - he's back and he is bringing it!

I love the astounded look that Heidi gives Christopher. It's kind of like, "Tell me that we're not getting a rerun of Andre's meltdown!"


LifeTimeforHomos

I don't think Christopher is at the bottom, they're fucking with our heads.


Thank God! No one can replace the duchess. Go ahead sweetie, rip into them like a dog rips into a bone!

Hahahahahaha. That's little lamb all over again.


YaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHooooooooooooooooo!

But i must admit i am a bit unnerved by who Kors is ripping into. They are my 2 fav. designers on the show =(


OMG, I've missed him soooooo! And don't you love that look on Heidi's face?


Is le Orange looking a little less jowly?


The Bitch is back, (and so is his PMS!)

And poor Christopher: He gets to play Laura Ingalls to the Duchess' Nellie Olsen. An epic battle, to be sure.

--GothamTomato


Oh please, like it takes much for Christopher to bring on the waterworks.
But I must say, the Duchess is a lovely shade of orange this week.


I enjoy watching Heidi's face while Michael critiques.

Finally, I can hardly wait for Thursday.


OUCH

I love it. Soo glad my favorite Oompa Loompa is back!


Thank God the Duchess is back. I was wondering what happened to him.

I have to see what this "disco pumpkin" looks like.

~Sewjourner


Teal charmeuse disco pumpkin might be the best line we've heard so far this season. LOVE IT!

I know I'm in the minority, but I like having a couple different judges. As we've seen over the last few weeks, the arbitrariness of the judging is not limited to Nina (and who she wants to sleep with) or Michael (and who he wants to sleep with)--things are just as whimsical as ever when it comes down to who stays and who goes. The PR "Guest Judges" have always been of questionable quality, so having a "Top Fashion Designer" and a "Fashion Magazine Editor" doing critiques based on their expertise is fine with me. Heidi and the Challenge-based guest can give their comments and we're done.

I think what I've been missing is the rapport between Nina and Duchess and their snarkiness--especially when they're ganging up on one of the contestants. Maybe in the future they only rotate them out one at a time.


I'd really like to think that they're screwing with us by showing us critique of another team. After several seasons of PR on Bravo, I am well-trained to look for all of the little fake-outs of editing. But this year Lifetime has confused me by being pretty much straightforward in all their edits. The loser edit? Is generally for the loser. What the hell, Lifetime?

So, I'll be pleasantly surprised if Kors is ripping someone else, but I'm much more inclined toward thinking he's ripping Christopher, who had convinced himself his garment was awesome and is just too tired and stressed and overwhelmed.

I'm hoping this footage means they're in the bottom two, but that some other pair goes home. If nothing else, I'd be pretty peeved to learn that Lifetime put out real spoilers.


Ahh the memories . . . . . It's been 20 years since I was enduring a a crit for a drawing/painting/print I worked on night and day to get done on time only to have it publicly ripped to shreds. Surprisingly, those memories still have that new car smell.

And thank god Kors is back - now finally these designers are going to get what they came for - public humiliation. I kid - I mean valuable feedback. : )


Ah.....nothing like a good dose of the Duchess of Orange!! God, I missed Ms. Kors.

I tend to think that the edits are funky too. I don't think the producers would hand out a spoiler like that, but maybe they would considering the uproar of having no Duchess or La Nina for weeks on end. It's so refreshing to hear "did you really think that goes together?!" from a judge who knows what he's talking about.

Go, go, go, Disco Pumpkin!


I seriously raised my arms in the air as if some team had just scored when I listened to Michael's comments in the video. Hallelujah!


SQUEEEEEE!
And, it looks like Christopher is channelling Andrae! Oh, does it get any better than this, my loves?


I saw this a few days ago and I have to say I got positively giddy with anticipation. All hail the orange one.


If you think the Duchess looks orange, then Collier Strong is a freakin' nectarine.


Miss Crissy is definitely this year's Korto.

They just completely fall apart at the slightest critique.

Take your Mydol and relax, Crissy. You ain't goin' anywhere.


I know "The Duchess" is his widely known moniker, but I think "Queen Tangerine" is much better.


Halloween is coming, and I suddenly want some disco pumpkins :D


Duchess is all about the disco this year isn't he? I do think it seems like there was some drams behind the scenes that really made Christopher break, so that should be interesting. So glad to have 1/2 of the dynamic duo back :)


just for the heck of it, I googled "disco pumpkin" and found if you carved little holes in one and put a spinning light inside, you have a Jack-o-lantern disco ball.

Just loved that, totally going to be on my porch this Hallowe'en...


WHY IS HE ORANGE??

Good God, people. Oompa Loompas are mythical creatures. Snap out of it!

Sorry. Just had to get that out of my system


Oh my God, Christopher, PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER AND STOP SOBBING. Embarrassing. Haha Epperson and Heidi are both just like "Dude...seriously?"


Christopher and tears? Reminds me of Andre's sobbing.

Yay! The Duchess returns! I can't wait to see the Disco Pumpkin.


I love Michael Kors, but someone needs to address his artificial tan, which is just distractingly bad. Kors's "tan" has the same effect as Leanne's straggly hair on Season 5: when someone in the fashion industry makes such a glaring error in the way they present their own hair and makeup, we begin to doubt their judgment in other areas. -victoria


Hooray! How I've missed my bitchy little Oompah-Loompah. Can't wait for the ep.


I love Michael Kors, but someone needs to address his artificial tan, which is just distractingly bad.

No way. At this point, he'd look positively bizarre any other color. He needs to stay his awesome orange self. Some things should never change.


Disco! Disco Pumpkiiiin!


If that doesn't get taken as a band name, I'm taking it and writing a season-specific dance song. I'll make a fortune!


Perhaps it was being paired with Epperson that helped bring on the waterworks? If he acts anything like he did with Qristyl (hey, I think I got that spelling correct - or close), then that might bring me to tears.

Who's this "we" doubting Kors' judgment? He's doing just fine with his fake tan.


godilovetheduchess!!!

i'm dying over this disco pumpkin drag naming business. love.it.


YAAAAAAAHOOOOOOEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Oh, God I missed the Dutchess. I con't care how orange he is, his critiques are priceless.

I didn't even think these comments were so bitchy. They sounded quite reasonable to me. The problem with all the guest judges is that they seemed to be too concerned about the feelings of the designers and not making waves. Good judging on Project Runway is a tough love proposition, and we haven't seen enough of that this season.

Get a thick skin, designers. You're about to step into the REAL world now.

*snicker*


Hee hee. Just looked at it again.

I know The Duchess & Heidi & Christopher get our attention, but...

Check out Epperson! He looks pissed. off.


Fake tans in hues from vermillion to walnut are rampant in the the fashion industry, especially executives.


ali said...

OUCH

I love it. Soo glad my favorite Oompa Loompa is back!



ROFL.


Thank GOD the Duchess is back!!!!!!


So glad the Duchess is back!! Now I'm looking forward to watching this week. But I hope Christopher's breakdown doesn't mean we will have another Sad Hatter/Crybaby Ricky type back on the show. I'll give him one breakdown due to exhaustion and stress. But if it becomes a weekly event like it did with Ricky in season 4, AUF him.


Ooh, I'm so excited now. And I totally agree with everyone - Christopher is being a big dramma queen to cry over that criticism.

Can't wait!!!


I find it intensely amusing that two of the most consistent designers end up on the bottom. Hope this means no Gordana/Irina on bottom.

God, you guys and Tim warned us in the beginning that Christopher would be a "friggin drama queen." and I guess it's true. Too bad. He's hot and sexy and sweet.

I finally have my Halloween costume, and it is a Disco Pumpkin!


As soon I read the cry, I knew Christopher was going to be in the bottom, anybody else?


There ought to be a "welcome back Dutchess edition" special door prize this week for correctly guessing which two designers' work he refers to as "chic."


I am with Tina on this:
"There's a point at which even the mildest criticism, in the wake of sleep dep, overworking, and trying to get a billion things done by impossible deadlines, can reduce someone to leaking."

And, most importanatly, squeeeee!!! Love the Return of The Duchess!


Forgot to add that my guess is the last comment ("Did you really think they went together? They don't.) is directed at a different team. That part seems splice-y to me.


man, talk to his had 'cause his wrist is pissed!


BWAAAAHAAAAAHHAAAAAA
Cry bitches CRY!!!!!
Sorry but he wasn't all that mean- those tears are ridiculous....


Christopher's one of my favorites. He's so cute and he's from SHAKOPEE...not far from me! I need to go and dry his tears.


Disco Pumpkin!!! Bastard cousin of Disco Soccer Ball, no doubt! Ah, Duchess -- how we missed ye.


I wonder how many times "I'm a Disco Pumpkin!" will be heard in North America Halloween night.


For some reason, I'm not convinced that Michael wasn't talking to Christopher and Epperson's team while delivering his critique. It seems edited to look that way.

However, all evidence seem to point at the contrary: I have yet to hear a guest judge reduce a designer to tears. Only Nina and Michael could do that. The only time Heidi can set water works on a designer is whenever she aufs someone.

I can't wait for the next episode!


Good grief. That didn't seem nearly harsh enough to cause the sort of break down Christopher had.

I'm glad Micheal's back. I hope Nina is too.


A real judge again!!!!

*DANCES WITH GLEE!!!!!*


Guys, congratulations on the SFChronicle article. That is awesome;so well deserved!


I agree that this is a splice job. Since when did Xr ever make a disco pumpkin? His signature is tight top paired with a voluminous, wispy skirt. But if it is a true mano a mano with Kors & Xr, I say bring it!!!!!

As for Mr. Kors's orangeness, I don't think he's a tan-aholic. That picture in the link had him looking rather ghostly. I think it's his beta carotene supplements, mixed with his Kors aura (Kaura?) and those spotlights. Just sayin'.


CroqueMonsieur: "SFChronicle article."

That's fabulous -- congratulations, TLo!


So, do you think he's really that orange, or do you think maybe they, um, "enhance" it a bit with lighting?


omg that was delicious! Was that really the Fraulein's expression in response to crybaby? It was like she was inspecting a bad melon. Ripe!

Congrats on the wonderful story you posted about T and Lo and our bloggyplace. So happy to have you guys in my life. Verklempt!...

It seems like Christopher's reaction to everything is the same: hint of tears, beauty queen gasp, and covering of the face with the hands. It doesn't matter if he's in the top or the bottom; it's always the same. Heidi and the Duchess both look ready to rip him a new one for it, and I can't wait!


Long Live the Duchess of Orange!


When I saw the commercial with Kors, I smiled. And then I heard the magic word: Pumpkin. Disco Pumpkin no less. The irony.

I'm so happy!


uhm...you still have some seams to rip. back to work, cinderfellas.


A pleasure to hear a real critique.


HellsKitchenDude

Can't. Wait.


OMG! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Disco Pumpkin alone is a fabulous trade off for him being gone.

Oh never mind-- it isn't. Michael we missed you!


I don't think the Duchess likes pretty boys.


C'mon... admit that you guys manipulated that photo a bit.

He ain't that orange...


I admit that I DO love Heidi for her stern disapproval of any show of human emotion. I find that very attractive in a woman.


If Cry Baby cries and elicits enough sympathy, AND my Easy Sewer is eliminated...well, I'll cry.

It would be a crying shame if Easy Sewer was eliminated for any catastrophical Disco Pumpkin his team produces....a problem with the absence of Nina and the Duchess D'Orange, they haven't seen the whole field of Easy Sewer's work.


Thank you tv gods. It has been annoying me so much these past few weeks how the contestants continually try to laugh off their horrid designs when being critiqued, as if laughing along with the revolving judges will garner them some points. Also, please stop clapping all the time during introductions. Time to get serious, people.


Nothing I love more than an orange fag. Except maybe an orange fag face down in my lap.


can we rename the duchess to 'disco pumpkin'? i think its just as accurate a description...


In honor of the Duchess' return, I must go out and buy a bag of Cheetos and some Orangina and have a Kors themed viewing party this week.

~Meadow


I don't get it. Why do we call Epperson "Easy Sewer?"


Clearly, mimosas and screwdrivers will figure heavily in the drink choices at the TLo Lounge tomorrow!

I'm becoming giddy with anticipation for Thursday night, almost as if I were in All about Eve, watching Margo Channing ascend the staircase while tossing off her fabulous line-"Fasten your seat belts.It's going to be a bumpy night"


Stephanie, you clearly are too much of a whippersnapper to remember the majesty of Morgan Freeman's early career:

Put your pumpkin out on the stoop, too!


Glad the Dutchess is back! Surprised to see Christopher and Epperson on the bottom, but I can't believe either of them would be auf'd at this point when there is still some other baggage to weed out.


Michael Kors is an episode too late to save the talented Mr. Lawrence and to keep Mr. White Dress Nicolas out of the winner's circle. Mr. Lawrence was among the few talented men in this season's lineup.
An avid watcher of every season since the beginning, this is the first time I believe the judges missed all around -- especially in letting Mr. Lawrence go.

It's always a pain when a strong contender goes out too early, but one misstep, and that's the end.

Same thing happened with Kelly last year, Kit and Kevin the year before, Diana in s.2, and so on and so forth...


Squee!! Ok, I truly don't like to see someone so hurt they are crying like that but "teal charmeuse disco pumpkin"? Marry me Michael Kors. And speaking of disco pumpkins, pot=kettle?

I am theorizing and hoping btw that you were collecting our comments re Nina and The Duchess to share with Lifetime. It is an incomplete and lesser Runway without them.


YAY! The Duchess is back!!!


Oy. Christopher is this season's Korto!

Knocks it out of the park 95% of the time, is reduced to a plate of tears during the other 5%.


If ONLY the outfit had " An Insane Crotch " too! It's been too long since I've heard those 2 words..

Should I feel like a horrible person for laughing when Christopher started to cry? God, I love the Duchess.


II thought it was Heidi who said the line, "she looks like she's pooing fabric" when talking about Elisa's dress on whatever season that was.

One of Heidi's better lines, not that she adds anything to the show other than to ensure the minumum short-tight-shiny quotient is reached each episode.

I'm kinda over this season, though. Didn't watch last week and actually didn't really miss it. The return of the Kors might make me tune in tonight, though.


context context context people. Look Christopher gets to be a team leader because the Macy's gal picked his shirt dress. He got the notion that what he was doing was cool. It was pretty uncool how she Uturned on he and Louise. But Tim encouraged him further with the comment that though they needed to make their pieces match, they had something. They were excited to be a team. So Christopher's reaction had more to do with feeling pretty good and having someone verbally punch him in the stomach. Watch the whole show and think about it.


I thought Christopher should have won this challenge. And Kors' criticism was understandably devastating to him.

Am I the only one here who yearns to see Christopher and Logan make mad hot love in an upcoming episode??


I have watched it on project free tv
