On last week's premiere episode of Project Runway, dreadlocked mom, McKell was sent home too early. Personally, I thought Casanova should have gotten the boot for his version of the harem harlot dress but I guess hookers need clothes too.
Ok, did anyone else notice that Andy is a freak? I mean the dude has an airbrush to apply his make-up!! Who does that? Where do you even get a foundation airbrush? Maybe I'm just jealous that I didn't think of it, but it's mildly disconcerting, I think. And then there's loud talker Ivy who is way full of herself. She definitely annoys. She's what we call "All front and no back," meaning she's booty!
So Marie Claire boss, Joanna Coles, give the designers their assignment: make a look that embodies all the qualities of the Marie Claire woman - modern, sexy, smart, sophisticated, etc. The winning design will be featured on a 40-ft billboard in Times Square! Pretty cool prize, but I honestly don't know why the show was extended to 90 minutes since the designers still only get one day to make a complete look. That's kinda harsh, and I'd be the first to admit to not doing well under that schedule. Make it work my arse!
So here's my Love List: Christopher's crisp, yellow and black dress with the pleated sleeves was beyond cute. I adored Valerie's red structured dress with the cool collar with heavy zipper detail. Gretchen's navy blue jumpsuit with the evening plunge neckline was pure simplicity and gorgeousness! Mondo did an about face with a bold black and white skirt that was super flirty and cute!
My WTF List : Jason's utterly lame, unfinished silver disaster with safety pins and combat boots. Ivy's beige, Phi Beta Kamma Gamma outfit -- a complete dud and waste of space. I mean what's the point?!? And lastly, Nicholas' Hester Prynne number.
The judge's top three (similar to mine): They loved Gretchen's dark blue jumpsuit and her modern, impeccably styled model - I did too, she was adorable. Also in the top was Valerie's red structured sky scraper dress with the cool drop pockets, and Mondo's (who knew?) whimsical psychedelic afternoon tea outfit.
Who did the judges hate? Nicholas' ode to the Scarlet Letter dress and capelet (ugh. yes, he made a capelet), Jason's silver rocker flight attendant mess, and Peach's Stepford Wife/Amish cocktail dress.
So who won???...............Gretchen, for the second time! She deserved it. It was a great jumpsuit and I would wear it morning, noon and night if I owned it right now!
Nicholas AND creepy Jason were sent packing. Jason didn't even have the courtesy to say goodbye to Tim before he left. FREAK!!! He's kinda scary...Do. Not. Engage. This. Guy. Avoid all eye contact.
So what did you think? Who should have gone home? I thought Jason and Ivy. Honestly, you don't make something beige on a fashion design show!
