Darlings, it's become increasingly tiresome to sit through an episode of this show. However, unlike The Fashion Show, we still think this one has potential. We like the concept, the production, and even the cast, for the most part. What's making it difficult are the judges. If there's a season 2, we'd like to see all 4 of them scrapped. There's not a hair of difference in point of view between them and they're all so damn tacky that every episode we wind up thinking, "Why the hell am I supposed to care what these people think?"
Whoops. That was a little rant-y.
So, congrats Merle! We thought you were on your way out the door and apparently, so did you. We have to say, though, that jacket is HORRIFIC.
And the dress isn't really all that much to write home about, although it is very well made and fits her like a second skin.
It's just that we're getting awfully tired of the gimmick, y'know?
We get it. That's the "hook" for the whole line, but it just comes across a little, shall we say, downscale.
Which does tend to make for some comedy when Merle swans around the workroom, sniffing at everyone else's work like some couturier. Honey, they sell dresses like yours on TV at 3 in the morning. The attitude is a bit much.
Still, we do kind of love her. Especially for the "Denim is for farmers" line.
But honey, there's no defending that.
This would be the look that inspired that little rant of ours up the page. Actually, that's not quite true. It wasn't the look so much as it was the judges' reaction to it.
Not that any of the looks last night (or most other nights) were so far ahead of this one, but come on, this look was the clear loser and the judges all hemmed and hawed and made excuses for it.
They make THE EXACT SAME DRESS every week with only slight variations and if it was a pretty design or an innovative one, we might excuse their tendency to return to it again and again, but it's not. It's flat out ugly. And the judges defend it - praise it, even - week after week.
And if you look through his collection, you'll see the exact same neckline again and again.
Ugh. We can't.
We like Patrick very much. In fact, we think Bravo should consider giving him his own show. We'd certainly watch him dash from fashion event to fashion event all over NYC. Consider it, Andy Cohen.
