Team... Logathea? Algan?

Darlings, we saved the best for last.
HAHA! No we didn't!

It's amazing they got any work done, what with all the time they needed to spend finding the perfect way to light their cheekbones.

"Haha! Logan! Who gives a shit about the clothes when everyone wants to do us, am I right?"

Model: Tara Egan

It's just all right. Obviously, the skirt's a slutstravaganza. At least they had the sense to notice it was too short even if it was too late for them to do anything about it.

The jacket is interesting. We like the the proportions on it. The only problem is that it fits terribly.

It's even loose along her back. That couldn't have been a deliberate choice. It also suffers from being rendered in some pretty cheap looking fabrics. What was the deal with Mood this week? Did they just direct them all to the bargain bins?


Model: Lisa Blades

What the...?

Poodles, what IS this? What is all that crap around her neck and front? Why is she wearing her father's pants? And the $64,000 question...

Could anyone please point to the blue on this? This was the easiest challenge in the history of the show: "Make something pretty and blue," and they couldn't fulfill one of those two dictates? And don't give us that "Oh, it's kinda of a slate blue," or any other Sherwin Williams-y kinda euphemisms for "gray."

Clearly, the judges overlooked this little lapse because they were once again blinded by Logan's silver VPL jeans. That boy may be pretty but he sure ain't dumb.

Oh, who gives a sh- about the pitiful clothes? TLo, you have, in two remarks, redeemed the entire episode. Thank god.

"That boy may be pretty but he sure ain't dumb."

*chortle chortle chortle*


I thought these looks were absolutely awful, and the judges should have judged everyone rather than let these looks slide by.
This challenge was so easy... maybe the talent level isn't as high this season, because there shouldn't have been so many disasters for such an easy challenge. The only excuse is that they only had a day. But still.
I like Logan and Althea, but these pieces were either weird or too basic, and they didn't fit the models AT ALL.


You two are a thousand times more entertaining than the show.
LOL!
While the challenge SEEMED to be make something in blue, Heidi said "incorporating blue into your design". So, that doesn't mean it had to BE blue.
This challenge could have been design something for the air hostesses of Jet Blue because 1 of each teams designs look like flight attendant garb, but, that's what working women in their thirties WANT to look like. PRECISELY!!!!


Yes yes, Logan is pretty. We get it. But his pretty ass should have been in the bottom with these looks. Ill fitting, ugly and not blue...how is that okay?

And why do they keep giving one day challenges? Is it b/c by this point they weren't sure that the show would ever see the light of day so they were trying to wrap it up quickly? If these teams were given two days, I think a lot of these looks would have been a heck of a lot better.


They ain't goin' anywhere. So they can make...whatever.


I thought the pants alone should have put them in the bottom three, along with the construction issues of everything else. In past seasons I would have believed Althea to be a judges pet, but with the revolving chair I have no explanation. I just can't appreciate anything she does.


Logan isn't that good looking. He's definitely one of those guys either he's your type or not. Definitely not mine. he does have nice facial features, but I don't look at him and fawn over him.

As for the clothes, agreed 100%.


I actually thought this stuff was deceptively elegant. Of course, the suit would have looked a LOT better on a flat-chested model. Althea needs to learn the art of the bust dart, because this is the second time we've seen this error from her. The skirt needed to come down a few inches, but was otherwise well done. Also, TLo, I disagree about the top - I didn't think it was slutty. It had an elegant neckline.

And the other outfit was quite ok, if you trimmed off the hanging ruffles on that top.

With some minor tweaking, both these outfits are smart basics, good to go just about anywhere.

I give 'em a four thumbs up. And I don't even like silver leather pants!


Algan sounds like a the synthetic miracle fiber they used to make the pants material. It looks so much like wool at a fraction of the cost. Just stand away from heat sources.

Logathea sounds like the name of the ice queen character Nicolas designed for last week.

Oh...you're reviewing this week's challenge... I'm sorry. I was too distracted by Logan's shiny pants to notice.

Perhaps they should have put some silver-blue spray paint to those Algan pants.


Poodles..... Haha! You guys crack me up! This show is as washed up as Lindsey Lohan. Next!


I think Althea has some serious problems with fitting the bust. EVERY top she has made has been crazy. This jacket makes Tara looks like she's a double D. Not classy. Maybe klassy with a K. The model challenge that she won was equally horrible. It's like she specializing in jackets for hookers to wear to their court dates. BAD.


I'm a fan of silver pants.

BUT, Mood-LA is 1/2 the size of Mood-NY and 1/3rd the fabric choices. I don't understand why they didn't go to Michael Levine's $2/lb. Remnant store downtown. You never find what you are looking for but at $2 a pound, you can make ANYTHING work.

mmmm, "make anything work" - hey, that's MY line!


Firstly a skirt that short doesn't need a slit. And a slit up the ass is just too much. They should have been in the bottom two for that alone.
Yet their 2nd outfit isn't blue. Grey and grey. Dear God is blue so henious that you refuse to use it? Or maybe all the designers thought, Hey I won't use blue at all and then my design will really stand out in a sea of blue. Except for none of them used enough blue, that if you didn't know that was the challenge, you wouldn't


These look as if they might have been put together by Ankh-Morpork's Guild of Seamstresses. Nothing fits, and seams don't meet. Worst is the peplum on the jacket, which is not a consistent length from one side to the other nor from end to end of each side. Add to that the fact that outfit looks as if it were tailored to the form for a size 12 Misses Petite and it may be the worst outfit in this challenge.

And one would think that "not blue" would be a fatal flaw for this challenge. That aside, the waistband seems to be merely basted together, with the fabric gaping between stitches. How did this not lose?


Honestly, had they pulled these two looks off, I believe they would have won.

Certainly this was more exciting, and stylish then any of the other offerings. But with all the errors they got the right decision with the safe. Better to reward the adventurous, then the lame.

It looks as if Althea/Logan take on just a little too much here.


Horrible/mediocre.
Althea seems to be the queen of suits that somehow garner praise from the judges while I'm left scratching my head. This one rendered in navy made me think the model was working for Slutty Airlines.
Did the ghost of Louise assist with that ruffly shirt?


I want a Blind Challenge - no sight allowed after you pick your fabrics. Everything by touch.


Anonymous
10/6/09 2:37 PM I want a Blind Challenge - no sight allowed after you pick your fabrics. Everything by touch.


I second that emotion!


I'm wondering if the pants on the second outfit were supposed to be blue, kind of like the challenge from last season where the blue dress turned purple under the runway lights.

Either way, I was surprised that these two weren't in the bottom.


Why does Althea keep making the SAME look every week? Both these looks were horrible they should have been in the bottom.


Forget "Where's Waldo?" I want to know "Where's Lisa's waistline?" Weren't those pants supposed to be high-waisted? They are way too droopy and make the model look rectangular.

Also, if that skirt was meant to be not too short and not too long, but just right, I'd hate to see what Goldilocks makes when she is deliberately going for short.


Had this been another season and had the judging panel been the normal one, I think they would have torn that second look TO SHREDS. It boggled my poor little mind. Nothing fit right, there was weird ... business on the front. What do you call that crap on the shirt? AND THE FIT ON THOSE PANTS.

If I were a judge (a for real judge, not just a judgmental bitchface), I would have been like "Nope, no one is safe. Three crappy teams - you all suck."

HOW DO YOU NOT CALL THIS OUT?

Also I thought that there was more of a Logan/Althea love story than LoganCH last week, but maybe it's because I felt like Althea was pawing weirdly at him sometimes. Poor awkward McShinyPants.


For some reason, what's really bugging me is the neckline on the shirt with the suit. The jacket is already bursting open, you don't need to add a low scoop neck to it. A straight line above the bust would look much better and less slutty.

And is it my computer, or is there a red pattern in those pants? Like, dots or blobs or something?

I agree with others. They've had 1-day challenges almost this whole season. Give them a 2-day challenge here and there, too. They're already sleep-deprived as it is, so all these 1-day challenges do is guarantee a lot of mediocre, uninspired clothes.


Seriously?
We like the the proportions on it. The only problem is that it fits terribly ??

The arms are too narrow, the sleeves too long.
I don't think the the problem is that is that is too big, the problem around the bust looks related to the top above the peplum being too short and the
peplum starting too high up.
It is NOT supposed to start directly under the bust - hello that sounds like something Shelly O would be guilty of.

The skirt - not too short, not to long - well I guess that is half right.


As to the color on the other outfit (I laughed at the S-W reference, since I worked there in the past) - I find a gray with a hint of blue not any more off than all that teal (mostly green) that others used.


I'd have to guess that Mood in LA is pretty expensive. I think they had $200 (my memory may be flawed on that point) to make two outfits. Fabric to make a decent jacket or pair of slacks is very pricey, and they always seem to have to buy more than they need because they might change their minds. I think that's why there's so much cheap-looking fabric this season.


Uh, I may be tardy to the party, but, what's a cheebone?


bitchybitchybitchy

I can only assume that Heidi's extreme love for all things uber-short is the reason that none of the judges called out Logathea on the ridiculously short skirt in the first look.

Logathea sounds as if it could be a descriptive term for a female problem....


I was so ready to rip these two pretty designers apart, but I'm just too sick of this entire season.

JP said, "In past seasons I would have believed Althea to be a judges pet, but with the revolving chair I have no explanation. I just can't appreciate anything she does."

I don't think Althea is the JUDGE'S pet; that would invoke a sense of competency. I think Althea is the PRODUCER'S pet. Because they don't care. She's pretty, blonde, tall and has cheekbones that can cut diamonds.

Her pairing with Logan must have made their ratings skyrocket. And that's better than being able to design, right?


"Uh, I may be tardy to the party, but, what's a cheebone?"

Hesitant though I am, anon, to curtail your freedom of expression, I suggest that snarky comments about typographical errors don't belong in the comment section, on any blog. If you see a mistake in a posting, the appropriate way to handle it is to either a) ignore it, or b) send a polite e-mail to the author so that the error can be corrected.

It's evident that the boys go to great lengths to avoid errors, but nobody's perfect.


Um, Althea was the team leader & designed & sewed the gray/blue pants with the "insane crotch" (MKtm).

So why is everyone blaming prettyboy?

And Logan can wear those silvery pants anytime, as far as I'm concerned.


Wow! Logan has huge hands!

heheee!

Jamibythebay


Can the "Insane Crotch Award" be awarded in a literal capacity? Because those pants, they are not right.


I think that short skirt was the reason they weren't in the bottom. That was a Heidi skirt and I bet her scores kept them safe.


I remember reading somewhere that the Mood store in LA was too far away from FIDM for Project Runway to use, so Mood opened a small storefront close to the school just for the duration of the show and based on what the challenges were, they tried to stock the "store" with fabrics that might be appropriate for each of the challenges. I'm not 100% sure if this is accurate, but it would make sense.


...incongruent looks...horrible fit...slutty, slutty, slutty...continuous ass crack...first season of 'Friends'...


They're using a downtown-adjacent warehouse as "Mood" and not the Pico store (although they show exteriors of this store). It would take at least two hours for their half hour shopping challenge if they needed to get to Pico. So I gather that they're only stocking fabrics that they think will fit the challenge. Also, it seems like the budgets have been really cheap this season. Granted, I can understand that the Macy's challenge would be cheap because those pieces will retail for $50 a pop, but I feel like everything else has been $50-100 and one day. That will never result in quality.


Remember they only had $100 per pair-that's $50 per outfit


I'm surprised the commercials for this episode didn't build up their partnership as Althea stealing Logan away from Carol Hannah, since their clearly having a relationship according to whoever does those things. That hussy!


In the workroom clip, the pants look blue, and Althea says that they are denim, but they sure look grey in the pics, Also Althea's boobs about fell out of her top when she bent down and showed Tim the skirt lengh. CH can't compete with that!


In certain lighting, though, Althea resembles a young Grace Zabriskie. And we all know how that turned out.

"Slutstravaganza" needs to be in the dictionary. NOW!


"While the challenge SEEMED to be make something in blue, Heidi said "incorporating blue into your design". So, that doesn't mean it had to BE blue."

Yes, and those pants made us sad. Hence, the blue part of that look.


This team acted like they did not give a shit. And the results speak to that. Sad.


The fit was so off I couldn't focus on the design. And the fabrics were cheap looking.

I can't remember a season when the fabrics used by the designers were so consistently bad as this one. Either LA Mood has a terrible selection or really deceptive lighting in which case I'll blame Mood. The other possibility is that the talent this year does not extend to fabric knowledge and selection in which case the designers are to blame. Maybe both the fabric and designer pools were a little shallow this year, Then I get to blame the Weinsteins and Bunim-Murray, both of whom are deserving for a variety of reasons.


Julia

These look as if they might have been put together by Ankh-Morpork's Guild of Seamstresses.


hahahaha
Thanks for the Pratchett giggle.

I thought they should have been in the bottom, that suit was one hot mess.
slutty, slutty, slutty indeed....


I don't understand how these two failed to win the Insane Crotch award. I mean, the pants literally have an insane crotch, and the skirt insanely shows her crotch. I know you boys love to be witty and sly and all that, but if the crotch don't fit...


Isn't that one outfit similar to Althea's winning outfit? Like strikingly so? I...didn't hate that outfit but I found it quite basic and uninteresting. And ditto for this. Altho we can add to that badly fitted as you said.

The crazy fringes was better than Louise's same motif. But it was still crazy fringes.


Worse than Louise's, by a mile.


Ok, can someone please explain to me why people keep talking about how gorgeous Althea is? Don't get me wrong- she is attractive, but I find her looks to be rather...generic. Moderately pretty bondes are a dime a dozen. I am not trying to put her down, I am just curious where the fascination comes from.
- this coming from another 5ft10 thin (natural) blonde w/ high cheek bones.

~L


Julie TVG, thanks; I'm always glad to give a giggle.

The quality on these garments is, unfortunately, not much worse than the last couple of years of INC collections. I ended up buying that brand in desperation when I needed an outfit for a college graduation in the Mountain Time Zone and nothing hangs straight; worse, the underarm seam on the sweater came unsewed when I reached for my camera bag.


When I finally got to watch the episode on "my lifetime" Saturday morning (FOR THE LOVE OF FASHION WON'T ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO WATCH THIS SOONER ONLINE?) I decided Logan looked like Peppermint Patty's somewhat better looking but just as grungy brother ...what no little bottles of shampoo in that hotel?

oh, me thinks Logan and Althea amused themselves by singing Prince as they cut & sewed "...we're so pretty you & me..."


It's amazing they got any work done, what with all the time they needed to spend finding the perfect way to light their cheekbones.

roflmao


Love you bitches!


This was out and out horrible and should have been in the bottom.

Also, is it just my imagination or was Logan's hair 4 inches longer than it was in last week's episode?

AH! I'm so freaking sick of this season!


Yes, as someone said, what is this trend for one-day challenges, all of a sudden. It's just not possible to "bring it" after one day at the sewing machine. I feel we've been robbed this season of seeing some really good work as a result. The designers are a talented bunch, but a lot of the work has been crap--and of course the challenges have been a bore.


YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS! I was waiting for this! The TLo critique of the non-blue, ill-fitting pants! Because someone had to critique it, the judges didn't seem to notice it at all. I think these were worse than the disco pumpkin, although I am not defending that piece. NO BLUE????

"Why is she wearing her father's pants?" YES! Exactly. Funny, too. You guys make even a crappy season of PR worthwhile.


It's like she specializing in jackets for hookers to wear to their court dates. -- Liz

Yes. Thank you Liz.

Dark, slutty suit? Check.
Silver tank with ill-fitted bust? Check - Check.

The first look is an out and out repeat -- and what's with the silver tank tops? And why doesn't Althea understand boobies? At least Tara's tits appear to be easier to control than Tanisha's.

I don't think Logan's hot either. He's "cute" but not "hot."


Ok, can someone please explain to me why people keep talking about how gorgeous Althea is? Don't get me wrong- she is attractive, but I find her looks to be rather...generic.

As a straight guy, I can only say that you could put a blond wig on a vacuum cleaner, and straight guys would line up for a chance.

To me, she looks an awful lot like Brooke Hogan.


Look at the Inc. swatch card that Logan is holding in the first photo he's in. The colors on that card explain a lot.


Althea's was a rehash of the titty suit and Logan's was just fug. And gray

It must be like the episode of 30Rock where Jon Hamm gets everything cause he's good looking.


Honestly, this challenge was such a crashing bore that I can't work up any interest in the clothes. They were all pretty bad and some weren't even blue.

Ho-hum. Hoping for something better on Thursday!


Seriously, what is it with Althea and boobs? Can someone point me in the direction of one outfit she's done that flattered/was correctly fitted to them? Just one?

I can't understand why Heidi hasn't pitched a fit by now. Or several.

Goes without saying that this offering goes in my bottom four (/eight) as well. Tara's hair looks nice at least though.


I really wanted to like the first look. If it was fitted and didn't have that slutastic slit in the back of the skirt, the look would've been HOT, especially in the back.

And the second look... There's just no hope for it. And I yelled out the same question too: WHERE IS THE BLUE?

Blech. No, no, and NO.

(But yes to Logan's silver pants. Ha!)


I have to get some silver jeans. It's the answer to all of life's woes.

Because Heidi has no understanding of what is appropriate - especially for breasts. In earlier extended reviews, MK commented on the need to be aware of the need for a bra (esp for work appropriate attire) and Heidi jumped in with a delusional opinion. Plus recall earlier in the season where she ripped on one designer and ignored Althea's model bouncing down the runway.


They "Haha! Logan!.." comment is perfection.

Love you. Love Logan. Love Logan's magic jeans (oh, that sounds dirty!)


All I have to say is THANK GOD FOR TLO!!!!

I, too, don't think Althea is that attractive, but she's got the t&a as well as the blond hair, so I'm sure men's penises everywhere respond. I say, get laid, gf! Maybe then she'd stop making hoochie mama skirts that are just begging for action.

As for Logan, he's too "pretty" for me. Nice looking and all, but nothing exciting about him. Including his designs, which have been a bore.

I pray to the fashion gods that this week's ep is palatable.


"As a straight guy, I can only say that you could put a blond wig on a vacuum cleaner, and straight guys would line up for a chance."

Being an attractive blonde myself, I have to say I've never experienced anything quite like that. Though if it did, it would make an entertaining story.


Mood Fabrics is really taking a hit this season. I haven't seen ANYTHING I would want to touch from them. It's pretty sad when the best fabric we've seen at Mood is yellow neoprene.

But then, terrible fabric is an INC specialty, so maybe that's it.


When will the next season start airing?

That one is done filming, or is close to it, right? Or do I have my timing off?


And the judges felt this ill-fitting, non-blue crap was better than the effort put forth by Epperson and Chris? Give me a break.


The only entertainment value of the show this season is to provide fodder for this blog.


>>These look as if they might have been put together by Ankh-Morpork's Guild of Seamstresses. <<

Julia, I love you.


you guys need to stop picking on Logan. I know he's been safe in literally every challenge, but this should've been his time to shine. the sketch he pitched looked way more interesting than everything that went down the runway.

Althea is one of the strongest competitors, she is playing it VERY safe. we've seen her pre-show work, she's capable of something amazing.


also I agree that MOOD is very crappy this season. what gives? Lifetime, you're supposed to take the show to a higher level, not down the stumpy road Andy Cohen was taking it down to.


Julia the VG says:

LOL - great comment!


"They look chip."

Is anyone else experiencing PR inundation? Don't really care if we miss an episode, but as long as we catch it here ...we're doing okay?

Anyhoo..... chip...chip...chip


It's all true. Logan and Althea are pretty; their clothes are not.

But their outfits made me blue; does that count?

I feel like singing a little song to them, esp. Logan:

You are my sunshine
My shiny sunshine
Your clothes are crappy
Not blue but gray

You cannot sew, dear
No one will wear you
Your "looks" are sad but your looks make my day.

Yeah, don't worry, I'm not quitting my day job.


Althea's giggling when she selected Logan as her teammate was gross. Again: I do feel a bit bad for Logan, since his effect on everyone around him is to turn them into giggling morons or psychos.

I think he's absolutely, utterly beautiful and I'd do him in a second, but that is beside the point here - the point being, this was some dreadful sewing work. Not much of a seamster, Logan darling, not in this challenge.
Also beside the point -Althea has crooked teeth, which for me kind of detracts from her conventionally-cute looks.

and GARY, I've mentioned more than once in the comments about watching on mylife.com. Until 2 episodes ago, it was commercial free after the very first opening commercial.

let's have a good challenge this week, shall we? please? and you know - we have yet to hear Logan have to explain or defend any of his creations.


My dislike of hoochy clothes has been saying for weeks that it is far past time for the jumbo Kirsten Dunst to be aufed. This week's entry only clinched that. Sadly, the judges apparently do not agree with me.


Wow, sorry. I'm the previous Anonymous, and I just reread it and realized the extent of the bitchery. I'm sure Althea is a lovely person, even though her designs are not to my personal taste. I'm possibly overly saddened over the loss of Ra'mon, and taking it out on my least favorite of the remaining designers. Sorry, A.


I think that when both Michael and Nina are there, designers get put on the hot spot more and know to step it up in the next challenge or they'll get another dose of the same. Also, when they are there, the judging is consistent, and the standards by which the designers will be nailed to the wall are clearer for all to see and avoid.

Without tough judging, the designers aren't motivated to really reach for the best within themselves. Tim Gunn can't mentor them into excellence; they have to find it within themselves to stay alive in the face of the toughest panel of judges.

Not only do the guest judges not measure up, they don't provide a consistent level of guidance through their criticisms. Nor do they give helpful suggestions, as Kors and Garcia are wont to do occasionally when they really want to show the designer what changes could have made a spectacular garment.

HEIDI: Either bring the show back to New York with Kors and Garcia on ALL the time, or watch your franchise go right down the tubes when none of us are interested enough to watch next season. "Don't bore Nina?" How about: Don't bore US!


I didn't realize porn stars were allowed to be on Project Runway...maybe thats her target customer?


For weeks now, I've been trying to figure out WHO Logan reminds me of.

Those doe eyes... those rosebud lips... that tawny mane... Scarlett Johansson!


I don't think that Logan is good looking. He's to effeminate in looks and possibly gay, so I'll leave him to the boys. Laughed at his "I love to take long, hot showers" comment to the boys who were drooling over him.


It also suffers from being rendered in some pretty cheap looking fabrics. What was the deal with Mood this week? Did they just direct them all to the bargain bins?

INC brand classified in the "Better" pricepoint (one level above the clothing brands that sell at Walmart-type stores). Fashion labels that are in the "Better" pricepoint usually have lower budgets for fabrics (i.e. $5/yd vs. $50/yd) since they are ordering thousands of yards more than labels that are classified in the "Designer" pricepoint.

With the recession, fashion labels have been cutting costs by using cheaper fabrics made out of polyester and eliminated details (i.e. longer stitch length, unfinished hems, etc.) because no one is buying clothes.

Mood gets its inventory by buying up leftover fabric from design houses. Therefore, the fabrics look cheap because they are cheap.


Coco Channel, thanks for the illuminating remarks about Mood. I didn't realize their stock was from over runs.


Bad juxtaposition--I watched Rachel Zoe in Paris, at Chanel (and in Coco's salon), then this episode. Reallllly made the cheap fabrics stand out. Geez, how bad are those Dad pants--even the zipper sewing looks chip. When do we get our PR back?


Logan needs to acquaint himself with a bottle of shampoo. That is all.


I got home late and started watching right before the runway show---I had NO idea that Blue was part of the challenge, none. I should have guessed because no one uses any color this season unless absolutely forced to.


Gah! When I can pick out the flaws after just a glance, something is very wrong.

Neither look is trailblazing, but that's not what was called for. Menswear pants with a feminine top? Good idea. A stylish suit? Another good idea. It's fitting to talk about the "execution" of these pieces, because they were murdered, especially the suit. How can a jacket be too big and too small at the same time? And was it impossible to buy a little bit more fabric, so the skirt wouldn't crawl up the model's butt?

Cambrita said: If I were a judge (a for real judge, not just a judgmental bitchface), I would have been like "Nope, no one is safe. Three crappy teams - you all suck."

HOW DO YOU NOT CALL THIS OUT?


You are so right. And yet, I think TPTB deserve to be called out too. Week after week, they've set the designers up to fail. Anything decent is a fluke.

PS: Logan is pretty.


The first design reminds me of Althea's winning "stylish" "suit" from the models challenge. Ergo, it is atrociously high and awfully executed. The second look isn't even blue! It is a grey blouse and a grey wash pair of pants. Not only is the blouse not blue, but it looks gross because of the "ruffles".


"Slutstravaganza"!!!!

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...(ad infinitum).


Logan & Althea - Team "Do Me"


"That boy may be pretty but he sure ain't dumb."

So true, so true. You boys crack me up!


How about Team "Aloganthea"? :)


Hey, didn't Kevin use Heath Logan's silver pants in one of his shows?


Logan's silver VPL jeans!

YAY!


Gah, I'm late commenting, which is unfortunate, because I would love to get some feedback on this.

Do you think it's possible these are actually "make-up" challenges? As in, they already had shot more complicated or better thought-out or crazy challenges but, because of the legal issues with Bravo (maybe some of the previously-filmed challenges were too similar to previous Bravo-produced segments), they might have had to ditch that footage and call the designers back in to reshoot new ones?

This would explain why Logan's hair looks longer in some challenges than others. It would also explain why the challenges we're seeing have such cheap fabric budgets and one-day time frames. They would have been last-minute afterthoughts.

And what if the producers then had to manipulate the results so they "matched" the results of the earlier, now useless, challenges? Anyone with me on this?

Anyone?

Am I all alone here on my grassy knoll with no one but the second gunman to keep me company? Help me out, Tlo lovers! This season is killing me!

That's actually an interesting point that I kind of thought about myself.


Liz wrote, of Althea:

----------
Haaa! That's it exactly.


If Althea makes one more ill-fitting suit I'm gonna barf.
Logan, Logan, Logan--I don't like when he's in the middle, because then we don't see enough of him during the show. That boy shouldn't be in the middle, he should be top or bottom. (And yeah, I mean exactly what you think I do--no double entendres here!)


I don't get the love for Logan's looks. He's kind of trailer park to me. He just needs a mullet.

Anyway, the pants looked slate blue to me in the workroom, so maybe it's just a question of lighting.

This whole episode and challenge was boring. Hopefully the remake of the wedding dresses will be more exciting.


Granted, it was a lame challenge, but I cannot fathom why these two weren't in the bottom of the pile. No blue in the second outfit and, if you don't have fit, you don't have style. Period.


Kittens not kids said, "we have yet to hear Logan have to explain or defend any of his creations"

Just like Christopher didn't have to until last week and then Duchess let him have it with both barrels.

Maybe I'm just more sadistic because this season sucks balls, but I would love to see Logan given the Christopher treatment. And if Ms. Kors rips Althea just a little about her bullshit boobies, all the better!

I see TLounge is open. I'm getting a Mai Tai and putting in a fantasy top 3 & bottom 3. Never in a million will it happen, not with Heidi in the reins, but it'll be soooo cathartic.


I've never thought either of them were very attractive. Althea's hair always looks kind of fried, and it's been distracting me (weird, I know), and it doesn't go with her skin tone at all. And the really weird part...for some reason, Logan reminds me of a werewolf. I don't know why, but whenever I look at him I think werewolf. Not exactly the sexiest thing around.


"Maybe I'm just more sadistic because this season sucks balls," Oti said.

Both of them.

I am so underwhelmed. I wouldn't want to watch any of this coming down a runway in a fashion show. All season. As for this challenge, it was about pitching woo to the classic INC customer. Sad to say, I'm that customer. I would buy the team girlie curly tunic. That's it from the entire episode.

I've never been so bored.
