Project Runway Blog Discussion Post


You asked for it, you got it! This is your place to discuss Project Runway. I don't watch the show myself. However, a lot of the commenters do. The show airs on the Lifetime network Thursday nights at 10 PM ET/PT. The official show website is right here.

Enjoy!

Shit, this is the Project Runway thing. LOL!!!! CRAP!

Jackie said...

Heh. YOU wanted the post!
;-)

Laurie said...

Oh Sydney, you gave me my best laugh of the day. I do love you!!

Delee, thanks for the times. I had that all mixed up in my little brain.

Sydney said...

aaah yes I did Jackie, and I thank you very very much. I 'splained myself on some other post, I don't remember which friggin one it was now *giggle*

Sydney said...

Guess no one is live blogging the All stars show... I'm here in case...

lynn1 said...

Jackie, Thanks for giving us Project Runway fans a place to chat.
Since I didn't make it in time for the start of BB pool party I am bringing my snacks here.

I have grapes,cheese board with brie, gornzola, munster and cammebert with a nice crusty french bread and some Pinot Grigio to wet our whistles.

lynn1 said...

One of Daniel's designs made the model look like she had a cumberbund made out of sticks of dynamite!

Sydney said...

WOW, interesting stars final runway looks.

First few were amazing--Liked Santino's (especially the silver evening gown)but really liked Uli's --- big change for her. And Chris' grey plaids were really well done, especially the final outfit -- floor length with the feather.

Sweet P is just good to see again, and her line was truly interesting.

Not loving Daniel Vosovic's clothing at all though I love him. And thought the guy with the tattooed neck who won his season's stuff was... hideous.

Sydney said...

Dang Lynn1. Thems fancy eats but very apropos for the show! Thanks for bringing them. I think I need to rustle up some fine champagne to go with them!

Sydney said...

AK they are criticizing Uli --no color, but lost her spirit!

lynn1 said...

Since this was the Premiere on Lifetime and I love fruit, cheese and crusty bread it seemed like a good thing to have.

meb said...

Well I'm here, but I can't watch and blog, besides, I'll have to talk about it later Sydney... I'm still trying to find out who won HOH.

Laurie said...

I'm here but it's not on for another few hours here. I'll have to give my comments after I see the show which will most likely be tomorrow. I am in bed by 10 when it starts here.

Jackie has a new post for the HOH. Just thought Sydney would want to know.... (grin)

Sydney said...

I can't believe they love Daniels's ... well, good for him. Apparently I know nothing about fashion.

lynn1 said...

I'm with you sydney. I thought Daniel's line was bizarre at best.
I am the first to admit I am not a fashionista but I know what I like and it was not his stuff.

meb said...

JEFF WON HOH!!!!!

Due to technical difficulties I won't be able to blog during the show . I'll catch up with you uys later.

RBennie said...

I DVR'd the show last night, so I just finished watching. I loved the All-Stars, but totally thought Korto should win. I loved all 4 of her looks. I was shocked that Daniel won. I hated everything but his last dress. There are some truly talented designers on the new season. I think it's going to be a lot of fun to watch.

Laurie said...

Just now watching the All Star show. I forgot how egotistical and annoying Santino is. Ugh! Imagine him in the BB house.

I loved Uli in her PR show and I'm liking her again. She just seems like a nice person. I also like Sweet Pea.

Laurie said...

Sleeping and snoring ... Methinks Chris has more than a few health problems.

dla said...

Hi everyone! I had no idea that our wonderful Jackie had put up a PR post for us to gather!! YEAH!!

I decided to forego BB and stick with all 3 hours of PR. I just can't get into BB this season...

All Stars was interesting! I would not have made the same choice for the winner, but enjoyed the show all the same! They are all very talented, and each of them has evolved since their season.

The new season looks entertaining with some great and unexpected designers!! All in all, looking forward to a great season. Still can't get used to it on Lifetime or in LA, but that is just me. It should be interesting to see if LA is simply the backdrop, or if it plays any role in this season.

Looking forward to chatting with all of you! :)

Laurie said...

Woah! One of the models was Mountaha from Make Me a Supermodel. It was like seeing an old friend! Did anyone else watch that show and recognize her? She modeled Chris's red carpet dress.

They are about to announce the winner. I think it should be Korto (which I'm sure is spelled incorrectly).

And the winner is ... Daniel. Nope, I didn't like his stuff at all.

Laurie said...

Here's the link to Mountaha modeling Chris's dress.

http://www.mylifetime.com/on-tv/shows/project-runway/photos/project-runway-all-star-challenge-photos#16

I hope to see more of her in the future. She was good and she was a nice person. Go figure. She didn't win the show she was on but she made it to the finals.

meb said...

Well I'm not sure if you guys are just not posting or if there's another place to post somewhere else. Because, I've watched the first episode and no one has talked about it. I think the 2nd episode is on tonight, so did you all decide to bail on me after you talked me into watching this show????

I enjoyed the first episode and loved the dress of the winner... don't ask names yet, and hated the outfit of the loser... she was really stupid to thin, what she did was going to get her through to the next round.

I'm not saying who since I may be spoiling it for some of you. They do certainly rerun these things tho don't they. If you miss it, you can almost pick it up anywhere during the next week.

If anyone is watching, would you leave me a note saying "don't give up"...

Sydney said...

HI Meb-- I'm not sure what night it's on suddenly, been out of town... anyway, ppl just need to know this is a sidebar chat thingy and to look for it. Maybe Jackie will make another announcement or I can put something in the BB comments to not forget that this little chat place is there....

Sydney said...

HI ALL -- I will be watching tonight's show with great anticipation. So glad you all are joining me!!!! Weee!

Hi Dla!

Hi Lynn1!

sizzie said...

My avatar doesn't match Project Runway. I am recording, but will want to come read these comments after I see the show.

Sydney said...

The show begins!

Sydney said...

But such a perfect avatar for the hot cocoa HOH challenge Siz!

Laurie said...

Hi everyone. The show won't be on here for a few hours but I had to stop in and read what you say along the way.

Ironically, I'm watching last night's episode of Leverage while hanging out at Jackie's place. Talk about multi-tasking!

Sydney said...

I forgot that this was shot quite awhile ago and got held up forever in the disputes between Bravo and whomever....

I was guessing celebs who are pregnant now, like Chole Kardashian, and that little blonde from Hef's The Girls Next Door. The celeb they are designing for is much bettah!

Sydney said...

I'm not so sure about the guy who decided to plan his dress around eggs and fertility and calls his creation the Mother Hen.

Laurie said...

That explains why Heidi didn't look pg on the show last week. I was wondering, especially after seeing her in the All Stars first.

Who do they have tonight?

Sydney said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
sizzie said...

So funny ! I was reading through the old comments and missed the date. There is some talk of PR show and then meb says 'jeff won hoh' and I am thinking how is that possible? Jeff can't compete. So eventually I see the date. It made me laugh, meb.

Sydney said...

woo ho. SOme of these designs in the cutting room are looking really bad. I wonder how many will actually look nice once they are ready for the runway...

Laurie said...

Thanks Sydney, you can delete if you want. I thought the designers knew who it was.

I wish I could see this when you do!

Sydney said...

Me too Lauire, and I did delete it.

I think the right person won and the right person lost. The top three good ones were all lovely though.

meb said...

ok...I won't be able to live blog but I'm watching and will be back to comment. I haven't watched yet. Sizzie, this is week 2... just in case you're reading this late. Smile

RBennie said...

Great show last night. I thought overall that the clothes were very nice. The judges bottom 3 was also my bottom 3. I would have gotten rid of Mitchell(?) though. Although Malvin's outfit was hideous, I think he has more potential. The winner's dress was gorgeous.

Is anyone watching the show about the PR models that comes on right after? I think creating that show was a great idea. I like seeing what the models think of the designers and eachother.

lynn1 said...

Sorry I couldn't post last night. I was having computer trouble or at least trouble with getting Jackie's blog to down load or refresh.

I think Mitchell should have gone home. I loved the outfit the winner made but I can't recall her name.
I really like Ra'mon as a designer but his dress was hideous.
I already know I won't be around to watch or comment for PR or BB next Thursday night.

meb said...

The nest egg outfit was rediculous and was the worse I thought, but then the shorts unfortunately weren't much better. I liked the idea of the shorts and top, he just had the shorts too short and floppy and the top too tight and showy.

I had a feeling he'll be the next to go unless he comes up with something better next week. Of course, he'll have help since they're doing the pairs.

I still don't know any names. I somehow missed the design of the one who won last week... which one wa it?

Sydney said...

RBennie-- I do watch they show after because why not,lol. I think it's a good idea and I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner, especially since the first show they've said this is a competition for the models too, yet we never even got introduced to them or saw much of them. This is what, the 7th season? They might as well capitalize. The audience is already there!

Laurie said...

I may start watching the show after. I noticed they don't say goodbye to the model this year like they have in the past.

I thought the egg in a nest was awful the way it was done but I could see potential in different fabrics. However, I didn't like him and his attitude.

I agree, the guy with the shorts will go soon if he doesn't shape up.

Here's a good link to see all the designers and how they are doing:
http://www.mylifetime.com/on-tv/shows/project-runway/project-runway-scorecard

Laurie said...

I'm starting a pool for this show.
I'll start it next week so we have a chance to get a few more people.

I know Meb, Sizzle and Syndey want to be in it. Who else?

We'll probably have a couple of designers each, which will be a nice change!

Leave a message here if you want in, or email me at laurie1109@yahoo.com and put Project Runway in your title.

Thanks! Now, make it work!

Caroline said...

Hey ladies, I finally got caught up with PR and am now ready to discuss!

I have absolutely agreed with the two winners so far. I really like Chris and think he has a nice style even though he's so concerned about not having formal training. And Shirin (sp?) made not only a gorgeous dress but a fabulous coat. I'm kind of a sucker for the great coats, it's what made me love Jillian so much two seasons back (that and her fab Twizzler dress).

Very disappointed that Mitchell (or Perez Hilton 2.0 as my roomie & I call him) is still around. I think bottom 3 for the first 2 wks should instantly send you home. Not to mention that he seems to be this seasons "I can't get my work done on time" kid.

Other than the winners & losers, so far I'm still having trouble with their names. So many are very unique and it's gonna take awhile, and I'm usually good with names.

Laurie, I'd love to be in the pool if you start one. Thanks.

Laurie said...

Thanks Caroline! You are in the pool.

So far:

Laurie
Caroline
meb
Sizzle
Sydney
Rbennie

I think I'll add Delee and Lynn1, too, knowing they post here and would want to be in on it!

lynn1 said...

Laurie,
Thanks for adding me to the pool. I do love PR so much.
I won't be around to see the show or chat tonight. Luckliy they show reruns frequently so I will catch it later on.
It should be interesting to see how Mitchel and his newly chosen Model get on. I predict fireworks.

OT
Any of you watching Top Chef? Last night's show was moving with cooking for the troops.

Caroline said...

Top Chef was very good last night. I kept hoping that the Brian & Michael's sister might show up...but it wasn't clear (at least to me) if she was currently in the service or had been in the past.

I really wished that the other (obnoxious) Michael would have gone home. He is far too cocky and can't back it up with his cooking. He annoyed me when he claimed that Jen is getting her quickfire wins through favoritism. I wanted to yell at him, "No, she's just kicking your ass, that's why she's winning". Hopefully he goes home soon.

meb said...

How did Mitchell ever get into this competition. He is absolutely worthless. I was amazed that his "team leader" won the challenge, but he went home. That had to be a first. But I'm glad he's gone. Now... having said all that, I have to add that his name is the only one I know.

oh laurie... my wv is: luroili

Laurie said...

We watched PR last night and boy, was I surprised at who were the top designers! Not the ones I would have chosen.

Did you notice when they chose the teams that Michell said "I need to choose someone who will carry me."? Now that was a telling comment. Watching him on the show was making me twitchy and I started wondering if he normally takes some kind of drugs for ADHD or something.

I also watch Top Chef, and I so agree that the obnoxious over-achiever-yet-loser Michael needs to go. One of the comments at the Quick Fire to the winner (I think) was that she chose do something that worked, not something that was over-extending herself. Boy, that was directed at Michael, I think. He is such a show-off and he falls on his a$$ every time. Hope he goes next week!

Laurie said...

POOL!

Caroline>>>>>Christopher
Delee>>>>>>>Althea
Laurie>>>>>>>Logan
Lynn1>>>>>>>Louise
meb>>>>>>>>>>Irina
Rbennie>>>>>>Ramon
Sizzle>>>>>>>>Shirin
Sydney>>>>>>>Johnny


These are the top contestants at this time. I matched them up to us by first initial, if possible, or next on the alpha list.

We have 5 names left, for someone to get randomly if their designer gets auf'd or if a new person wants to join the pool.

That's as fair as I could do, considering the show is in progress and we've seen their work. If you aren't happy with your designer, please talk to Tim Gunn.

Make it work!

Sorry I couldn't post before now. So happy that Mitchell is gone . It was painful to watch him struggle weekly.
There really has been as much angst and drama with the models as with the designers.
Thanks for doing the pool Laurie. I think the way you assigned designers worked out fine.

lynn1 said...

Just ducking in to say hi everyone.
I have some delicious fresh juicy and sweet pineapple to share tonight.
I won't be able to watch the show and post at the same time.
Hope we get to see some good designs this week. I thouhgt some of the designs last week were lame, but maybe it was because of the theme.

I am still on cloud nine from the BB show earlier this evening!

Joanie said...

Yippie I'm still in.

wv=grate

Natalie from Big Brother has begun to grate on my EVERY nerve.

OK she's been grating on my nerves for awhile now, but couldn't pass up on the use of the word.

Sydney said...

Hi All -

Lynn, that pineapple was quite a treat! It makes me miss Hawaii!

I am thinking that my guy in the pool, Johnny isn't going to last too long. What do you all think?

I was sorry for the woman they let go last night, even though her purple dress in the first contest was horrible. I thought that black dress was FAR better and lovely and quite wearable over the electric blue Jane Jetson prom dress the cute guy did. But he's cute so they will keep him in longer...

My husband said the woman they let go (grrr, don't know her name) was in the bottom all three of these first weeks but I don't remember that. Is it true?

So, yes, they can base it on the designers body of work and that could also be why they booted her and kept the cute guy. But if it were just based on those two dresses, I thought the black one was fine.

The level of ability in the designers this season is quite high, save the first girl who got the boot, and the woman last night ... They guy who went week 2 was never going to get to the end, so boot him early I guess. In other words, it should be a very very good season. When everything you see is good, the competition is far harder to call and that makes for good watching AND PLENTY OF GOOD CHATTING ABOUT IT HERE! Yay!

Sydney said...

One of the women chefs on this season of Top Chef is the place my first cousin and his wife haunt. They are total regulars in her resto.

They said that they producers definitely deprive them of sleep and proper meals to further stress out the contestants and bring out the drama.

Sydney said...

RBENNIE--t his is old but for the all stars I wanted her to win too. ANd of all four I was surprised Daniel won, even though I adore HIM. When they judges made their comments about his stuff I thought, OK, either I know nothing about fashion or they don't.

More likely, we both do and they said what they did to give him the win....

Laurie said...

Laurie said...

We watched the show tonight with my adopted grandchild, Montana who is "10 going on 11" (remember when we said our age that way?).

I think we may have to have her over every Fri evening to watch with us. She enjoyed it and had fun comments about the dresses. That blue thing that Sydney called Jane Jetson? Montana said "Even Barbie wouldn't wear that!" Cracked me up.

I was sorry to see Qristyl go, but she doesn't seem to have what it takes for this show. She would be a great designer for the regular woman, though. You know, someone like most of us who wouldn't ever wear that winning outfit. Of course, we aren't models going to an industry party, are we? At least I didn't get my invitation!

Donna, feel free to join another person and stay in the game. It's all for fun!

Lynn, thanks for the fresh pineapple. I love it!

Sydney, I think Johnny might last longer than you expect. He has something ... he just needs to settle in.

lynn1 said...

Although I hated the Jane Jetson dress, I thought it was time for qristal to go. It seemed to me that as a designer she had questionable taste in color combinations. I thought her black dress was the most attractive outfit she had shown thus far.

I did like the black dress with the high collar that my girl Louise designed. I am wondering why Louise continues to use Fatamah or whatever the name is of the model with the snotty attitude attitude.
Personally my favorite design was Epperson's I thought it was elegant and funky. A weird combination but "he made it work!"

meb said...

Man, I'm always going to be late posting for this. But I wanted to say that I thought Qristyl's first attempt, before what's his name told her it wasn't good. She had little time to change it up and then came up with something less than. I would have been upset had I been her.

Sydney, sorry, but I don't like your guy... I thought the first night when he went out and said I can't do it, and then what's his name (damn, what's his name???) went to him and encouraged him and now he's all that!!! That was staged! I just don't like this kind of stuff in these show. Too much prima donna syndrome.

Irina is my girl and I think she's doing alright. We'll see.

Next Top Chef episode is going to be no fun to watch... they're going to be out in that heat cooking... Whew!

meb said...

I meant to say I thought Qristyl's first attempt at her dress was nice and then she had to change it up. That could have been the reason she lost the comp because she didn't have time to do it better.

wv: imenve I'm enve (ous) of these designers being able to do this.

lynn1 said...

I did like Iraina's trench coat but I liked Christopher's feather dress better and I also thought Althea's dress was good.
I thought Johnny was the right choice to leave.
I personally did not care much for Epperson's design but I don't get a vote.

Caroline said...

I completely agree Lynn1.

I liked Chris' dress the best and he probably put the most work into his design. I also loved Althea's but figured she wouldn't win cause she already had immunity.

I also really liked Carol Hannah's because of all the effort and detail that went into the design.

Johnny needed to go he was just obnoxious. Not only did I not like Epperson's dress, I don't like Epperson, so I'm hoping he screws up soon and gets the boot.

I disagreed with the criticisms of Gordana's outfit...I really liked it. Not enough to win, but I don't think she should have been in the bottom 3.

Margo said...

Hey ladies - I will be watching this weekend. It looks like my guy made it another week - but you apparently did not like his design. I will have to reserve judgement until I watch - but I really do not like his attitude. But I guess you have to be a little full of yourself to be a winning designer on this show.

Margo

Sydney said...

I could not watch the show in full last night. It was on and I was in the room and my husband was watching but I was feeding baby squirrels before bed and they had to come first. No matter how low the TV volume is, one is particulalry skittish and I needed to go in the quiet and dark to feed him his milk by syringe, lol.

But I did see my guy in the pool is gone. More to say once I see the rerun.I'm just so glad I get to read everyone's comments on this show after several seasons of watching it without input from my Jackie's crowd!

RBennie said...

Although I thought Johnny was the right one to go home, I didn't think his dress was that godawful. I agree with those of you that think Christopher should have won. That dress was freakin amazing. I thought the coat was very good too, just not the best. Is anyone watching the Models of the Runway show that immediately follows PR? I'm enjoying that show too. I have always wondered what the models really think about the designers and the clothes they have to wear.

Laurie said...

Sorry your designer went home, Sydney. I think he deserved to go, mind you, but I feel bad for you.

I liked the top 3 designs and think any could have won. I was very surprised that Gordona was in the bottom 3. She was a star compared to the 2 at the bottom.

I do like this show even more knowing I have people to talk to after I watch it!

Sorry Sydney that I said I didn't like Johnny and then he got sent home tonight... and on top of that Irina (my girl) won. Does that give me bragging rights for the week? You can join with me to cheer on Irina if you want Sydney.

I liked her coat and I loved Christopher's dress. If Irina had been able to give her coat some color, gray I think, then it would have been even better. I think she won this one because it was good and Christopher had already won one.

Enjoying the show even tho I always seem so late to watch.

Nana from the NW said...

I finally got a chance to come join the comments here. I don't watch the show until the weekend....to many conflicts. I watched the paper dress episode and oh, what memories. My sister saved her babysitting money and bought a paper dress when she was 16 and I was 14. She wouldn't let me wear it so I waited for her to leave for school(HS started earlier than Jr. High) and then I wore her dress to school. You guessed it....I tore a hole in the back hemline!! I had to fess up about it and take MY babysitting money to pay her for it!

The show was fun and I actually really like the dress that had the asian look with the blue coloring(I think it was Logan's). I really like Christopher...he seems happy to there and not full of himself...like Nicholas.

lynn1 said...

I was underwhelmed by last night's show. It was an interesting challenge but I saw way too much of Nicholas and his frenzied behavior. His dress and model looked good but I can't remember some of the other designers creations at all because we only saw them for a brief moment on the runway.
Even though Louise is my pool designer I thought she should have gone instead of Ra'mon. She showed no creativity at all. I have to agree her design was "a big snooze fest."

I thought the right model went home too. She was very disruptive and argumentative.

Laurie said...

I just saw last night's show and I was a bit underwhelmed, too. I was really hoping all that attention on Nicholas meant he was going home, and was sorry he won. Frankly I thought the rugged yet sexy western woman was a winner. Was that Christopher?

As for the loser, I wanted it to be Nicholas. I know, he won but he annoys me so much that I want him to lose!

Sydney said...

while I thought the white planet queen was very nice, I am amazed they didn't give it to the Vampire Bride, which was totally incredible, so well done, and for $150 and only one day's work. Or the western demin dress with the side leather pouch and belt. It made me wonder...

I still thought the flapper dress (and hair and Make up) were perfect, but I understand it wasn't "out of the box", just accurate.

There is LOTS of talent and the challenges seem harder this year in shorter time frames.

I have to say I don't like that they are showing little snippets of the models opinions or reactions. I know they are following the show with a show about the models for the first time ever and that's why. WHile I think that show should have been a shoe-in since the first season, I still want PR to be about the designers period. But it's a tiny detail... just something to say since we're on a discussion post, lol.

Sydney said...

HI Meb, that's ok (jus treading your comment now0. I think it was Jonny's time to go!

Laurie said...

Sydney, I think it was you who said earlier that the problem with Irina's designs are that people can actually wear them. I think we saw that again this week. That flapper outfit was perfect and would have been great for a movie about that time period. She did the assignment perfectly, in my opinion. She will probably be auf'd for doing excellent work.

Sydney said...

Laurie -- I guess they said that it just didn't stand out in terms of creativity and out of the box thinking in the arena with all those other designs. What I can't remember is if they said that had to be a part of it?

Laurie said...

I don't think they did say it had to be "bigger than life" ... I don't think she will make it much farther in the show. Of course, I'm not all that good at figuring out who will win these shows!

Mornin Ladies-

I will watch this weeks episode this weekend so I have nothing to say on that - but I did want to share something.

Before this season I have never watched this show. But since I'm in the pool I thought I should. Last weekend I had 2 episodes to watch. The 1st one was the paper one. I was watching while I ate my lunch and Mom came down about half way through. I told her what I was watching and she mumbled something but sat down. After the episode I still had last weeks to watch. I asked her if she was staying and what did she want to watch. She said she had her book and I could watch whatever. I started the new episode and was watching an noticed that Mom was not reading but watching the TV. I made some comment about the show and she said this is FASCINATING. We sat and watched the 2nd episode together and both agree Nicholas is a pompous ass.

Too bad Nicholas had immunity and couldn't be sent home last night! I knew Louise was a goner. I actually liked the shirt dress that Christopher and Epperson made. I was really surprised when the judges tore it to shreds that way. Now their second look I hated.

Caroline said...

I was amazed that no one on the panel commented last night that Chris/Epperson's 2nd outfit wasn't even blue. It wasn't even clost to blue, it was flat out green!

I'm disappointed that Carol Hannah didn't win this challenge. I liked her stuff better and she's come so close a few times but never actually won. The shades of blue she picked for her designs were fantastic and you could see real women wearing them.

Also, I can't stand Irina...so that's part of the reason I was disappointed she won. I find her to be a snotty biotch who thinks she is better than everyone. I've never seen her say anything positive about another designer.

meb said...

I loved the Ice Queen dress and make up. Was that Nicholas'. I'm still not getting their names yet. I don't like him, however.

Tim was on Bonny Hunt yesterday and I enjoyed him as a guest. She asked him if he always looked like that (suit and tie). He said he doubted he would clean the house that way but other than that, he thought it a sign of respect to the other person to dress properly.

The talent in this group is awesome so I'm really anxious to see what comes next.

Thanks Sydney and everyone else who convinced me to start watching this show (and Top Chef) cause I'm really enjoying them.

TOP CHEF
Again...names???... The lady who won this last episode probably cooks all those simple, tried and true recipes which are second hand to her but too 'easy' according to the other chefs. That's why she won this round. It irritates those who really do have exotic dishes and work hard to make them exceptional (and beautiful). I thought the islander who left this time was the proper choice.

Laurie said...

We just watched last night's show and we were surprised to see the shirtwaist dress be trashed like that. I thought it was cute. Again, it shows what I know.

Irina is so annoyingly superior and Nicholas is right there with her. Ugh, some personalities are just hard to take.

Did you see the holiday dress, though? It was cute and it will sell.

We both also think the judges are making much harsher comments this year. No need to be so mean, just say why you don't like it!

I'm so glad you newcomers are enjoying the show. It really is one of my favs.

I was disappointed that Top Chef wasn't on this week. I really really like it. I agree that the guy who went home last week was the right one to go. I love that the woman's "simple" creations are winning. It's like a simple dress. If it's made well and it fits, it's better than any fancy thing (especially if it has ruffles!)

meb said...

I'm glad I have Irina in the pool because I do believe she is excellent as a designer, but I really thought she was unnecessarily mean to her "team member" (name) on the runway while being judged. I loved the dress for the comp, but I also liked the blouse. Glad the team member stayed also.

Also think it was time for Louise to go. She really was ditzy and while I thought the sheath dress was attractive WITH the ruffle, the other dress looked like pubic hair running down the front. Downright disgusting! IMHO

Christopher's crying was a hoot. But I also felt that the shirt dress was attractive and it would have been something I would have worn (in my fashion days..LOL) and though I wore things that a lot of people would hesitate to wear back then, I was very fashionable. If you don't believe it just ask me!

I loved Irena's design for the holiday dress for Macy's. I would buy it (would have bought it). My figure today might not do it much justice.

Laurie said...

I watched the show this afternoon and I don't think Epperson was the right person to go. Personally I think both Logan and Nicolas had worse outfits. I do agree with the winner, though!

Margo said...

I watched the last 2 weeks shows this weekend. Nicholas is very lucky he had immunity that week he worked with Louise cause i think he would be gone. Too bad I don't like him.
Sad to see Epperson go - but someones gotta go so oh well.

Margo

meb said...

I have to say that I, again, liked Irina's outfit and thought it was the best design, but the fact that Irina threw her partner, Gordana under the bus right there on the runway last episode, I'm doubly glad Gordana won this week.

I'm disappointed with Irina and how she belittles everyone else and their outfits. She's an excellent designer, she doesn't need to put everyone else down.

Dan said...

If you think Heidi's been a little mean this season, you've seen nothing yet. Here's a teaser of some of the put-downs for the rest of the season.

meb said...

Sydney, where are you? And everyone else. I feel so alone!

Irina won her 3rd competition, but she's right when she said, that only makes it harder for her to better herself each time.

I agree that Gordana has a bad habit of putting herself down. She doesn't have to do that, they can do it for her very well. Auntie Leigh, she keeps coming up with some pretty good designs tho doesn't she.

Christopher keeps sliding through. He always looks so worried that by the time he ends up in the bottom, he's a wreck. Almost funny to watch, but really sad.

Glad that Nicholas is gone. He got on my nerves.

meb said...

Glad Althea won... she did a nice job. Irina is really not a nice person. It's pretty obvious that she does the best designs but to comment on everyone else right there on the runway is sour grapes. She is my pool person tho so I'm glad she's doing well in that aspect.

Logan was a surprise to go home I thought. He's done some good stuff but this one wasn't one of them.

Christopher is hanging on by the skin of his teeth tho. Good to see that the ladies have the staying power since one of them commented that it's usually the mean knocking the women off the show.

And I still can't believe I'm basically the only one commenting after all that chiding to get us to watch... I'm not only watching, I'm enjoying. Would be nice to talk to someone other than myself. Are you guys gaslighting me????

Sydney said...

HI MEB -- I'm sorry, I have falled nehind on ALL my TV watching... and I had this one tivo'd but for some reason it's not recording it, so if I do have time to see it, it's not there. I don't love watching a tv program on computer.... too used to my big screen TV. I'm glad you're loving it and that you are still commenting here.

I have wondered why Logan has stayed in... not that he is horrible but there were times when he stayed and his design didn't merit it in comparison to who went home. But he's cute...

And the best designer is indeed irena and she is a total bitch and doesn't need to be.

Heidi often wears some dog outfits so it amazes me that they think they grey jacket is bad. If Calvin Klein made it, they'd be saying it was the new thing. I like it!

Sydney said...

I can't believe they raved over ALthea's outfit. That shirt looked so sloppy, hanging at the armpits. The pants were cool but Heidi called it GENUIS???? And they were so hard on Jordana with the tailored gray jacket.

Sydney said...

oh yay, Jordana is in. I don't wish ill to anyone on this show but Logan got his chance and the exposure...

Sydney said...

oh geeze, lol. I thought we were watching THIS week's show and it is only 9:00 so NOW we're watching this week's show!

Laurie said...

Well, I have given up thinking I have any fashion sense at all. This year's show has really been off the wall with some of the choices!

meb, I am still watching but I don't get to see the show for a few days after it's on.

Final Three going to Fashion Week

lynn1 said...

Altough Irina is a good designer I wanted Carol Hannah to win. Irina is an attractive and talented young woman but she is not a nice person,IMHO.
When Tim mentioned that Irina and Althea were doing similar make up Irina said "well that's Althea" insinuating that Althea was copying her. I don't think that was the case.
I enjoyed this season and look forward to watching again next season.

Sydney said...

Lynn1 -- I agree about that make up crack and I thought it was odd that Tim too seemed to suggest that she was copying Irina.

In the end I did think she had the most stunning line. The judges talked down black but wasn't that the same as little boy who won last year -- C. Syriano? They RAVED over him. His stuff was fabulous but they didn't say a think about it being mostly all black.

I know what they meant about Althea's sportswear line and all... it being sellable etc... for me it's just hard to see something so casual walk down the runway at Bryant Park during fashion week in NYC. It's the top of the top, besides Paris, and what every designer dreams of. I guess it's so over the top I don't think separate casuals when I think of it. I learned something, lol.

Carol Hannah will have a career for sure after this, and maybe a nicer life since she's a nice person. Really down to earth. And maybe she'll have an even nicer go of it if she and the hot guy designer end up dating in real life! :-D

Congrats to Meb, your girl won! And to Delee and PDX for going to the Park.

And thank you for those who accepted my invite to check out this show. Looking forward to next season.
