Project Runway

Well, it's about damn time. I can't believe how long Angela lasted - but I loved that Catherine Martiriano or whatever her name was said that she wasn't a jetsetter and was from another world. That made my day. Bye-bye, Angela. Perhaps the show will be less kooky because you're gone, but the fashion world is a safer place.
I didn't love this challenge, but I think this was a natural place for a dip. After all, last week's challenge was so great, and the challenge before that was pretty good, too, so I'm OK with kind of a weaker theme. Which is not to say that it was a weak challenge. Seventy-five bucks and ten hours to make an outfit for a hip jetsetter? That's tough. But I think that giving the win to Jeffrey was sort of bogus. Sure, the outfit looked good, but did anyone else notice that he took the coat off for the flight to Paris? Michael left his whole look on for the whole flight. And didn't Laura look fabulous in a color other than black or white, and with her hair down? Yes, yes she did.
Here are my predictions for the remainder of the show: next to go will be Kayne, which will be ridiculous because Vincent will be back on the crazy train; but he'll get his the next week; leaving the final four as Uli, Laura, Michael and Jeff. The judges will finally have enough of Uli's prints and flowiness, so the top three will be Jeff, Laura and Michael. Mark my words.

Project Runway - A-

So was Jeff's brother at Interlochen this summer???? It's so funny how we feel so differently about this week and last week. I thought that this week was FABULOUS, compared to last week which I felt was just really difficult and painful, and unnecessarily harsh on "real women."

Angela obviously is from another world as CATHARINE MALANDRINO said. Malandrino makes fabulous clothes and knows what she's talking about. I feel bad for Kayne. If he was a jetsetter, that outfit is what he would wear. Just because its a little flashy--don't hate!

Seriously. Can we discuss the Vincent issue? He made something that Michael Kors likened to the PAJAMAS you get in first class (you get pajamas in first class?). There was no DESIGN there. Congrats Vincent--you've gotten to where you are at the expense of actual designers--Allison and Robert.

It really isn't fair for you to make predicions on the show since you have the inside scoop on who is actually going to be in the top 3.

Chargenda said...

It is totally fair. Having the inside scoop rocks!

Wait, did I miss something? How do you have the inside scoop?

OK, while at Interlochen, I found out who ONE of the top three is, because that person's brother was a camper. But seriously? It could be anyone of those three. I'm just making my predictions.

I was hoping this would be a challenge to design new flight attendant uniforms... a la "Don't tell mom the babysitter's dead."
