Tim: "Really? You can't remember my name?
I assert that I don't buy it."
The challenge this week was to design their own textile and I I LOVED that the designers got to make their own pattern for their fabric. LOVED! I want to use a paintbrush on a screen! I want to create fabric patterns for hoodies! Is there an app for that??
Vivienne Tam: "Hi. Insert blatant HP commercial here.
Yeah, I'm not happy about it either."
Tim Pistola: "I've always wanted an awkward prom picture."
I must say that when Seth Aaron got the "phone call home" segment I almost threw up my dinner. I proclaimed to the room (which included my very pregnant sister, her husband and 2 snoozing dogs), "IF SETH AARON GOES HOME I AM DONE WITH PROJECT RUNWAY FOREVER!" To which they proclaimed, "Yes yes, now shut up." (The dogs just continued to snore...)
So let's just get to the runway as my brain is making little sense of much else right now because I AM ABOUT TO BECOME AN AUNT!
"Giving birth... big whoop. I do it in heels."
Me no like. The green textile is only moderately appealing and the whole thing put together like this makes her look like she's Queen of the Attractive Lizard People. But overall, Jay does good work, this look is well made and thought through (he was going for a militia vibe). So safe it is.
I don't get it. This looks like what Pebbles from The Flintstones would wear if she decided to become a cavewoman of ill repute. The judges LOVED this pattern. I think it's okay? Yeah? Maybe? I dunno. The whole look together doesn't send me.
SQUEEE! He didn't go home! Well done, Producers! A proper fake-out!
LOVE these pants. And holy crap can this man make a good jacket. However, I do home he changes it up as our fan fave who goes home this week goes home for presenting the "same thing week after week." So even though it's awesome, I worry...
WINNER - Emilio:
Hmmmm. I would pick SA's outfit over this. But Kors went batty for the logo which is ESOSA (which the "O" is a heart in the textile) which stands for his name: Emilio Sosa. OH - flashback - favorite part of the show is when Tim Howitzer said: "Emilio Sosa loves Seth Aaron?" HAHAHA! Emilio assured him that the textile wasn't proclaiming love to anybody except himself. Tim then said he had to adjust his thinking. HA!
The jacket on the model looks pretty big. I will thoughtfully say that I am not a fan of the shoes with this look either. AND, while I love the blue, I hate the print. I don't want writing (scrawling?) all over my dress. I want people to look at me in the dress and appreciate it, not try to read it and then wonder if it comes with Cliff Notes to expain what the hell I'm wearing.
And PS - I'm still pissed that Emilio wasn't auf'd from the Hardware Challenge. That's still straight up bullshit and this biddy is holding a grudge. PHOOEY!
And PS - Tim BoomBoomMaker hates it too! Read his blog!
Speaking of grudges... I'm holding a new one now since this piece of kakadoodoo wasn't sent home! THIS IS THE UGLIEST THING I HAVE SEEN IN AGES. The coat = hideous. The dress is a teepee that even Rainbow Brite would find garish and to top it off BRANDISE CAN'T WALK IN IT AT ALL. (And then in Models of the Runway Kors tells her she made the dress worse with her walk??? WTF?! At least she didn't fall or roll down the runway!) Brandise had to hitch up a side of the dress just to be able to move her feet. Which tells you that this look is an all around FAILURE. Bad design, BAD textile (which was the challenge) and bad bad bad execution. And just fugly. GRRR! THIS look should be going home. BOOO!
I love this look! But the judges think her dress looks like a dirty table cloth. I think it looks adorable! And they hate the backwards jacket - I love it! I agree that this isn't a winning look, but honestly, I think his model looks amazing with her skin tone and blond hair with this fabric. The judges also said that Jonathan makes his model week after week look wide and short. I do agree that he has made her look stumpy (which she isn't!!) so that's valid (and I don't think the shoe choice here works or does anything for the line of her leg).
But Jonathan stood up for his textile and we saw on MOTR that Cerri stands up for Jonathan's look as well. I really like her... so you know what that means... Sigh...
AUF'D... Fan favorite, Brown Sugar!
Yes. This is not great. Yes. I've seen better. But MILA SHOULD HAVE GONE HOME. Her's was worse! At least Anthony's concept is wearable. And his textile design was better than hers. GRRR! BIDDY SMASH!
I'm sad to see Anthony go and that Mila and Emilio have been able to skate by even though they have presented STRAIGHT UP DISASTERS to the judges. It's not fair. If I didn't have a nephew on the way, I'd be completely wrecked. (OOO - I hope my sister names her baby Tim Saturday Night Special. Yes?)
MODELS OF THE RUNWAY:
The models fill 20 minutes of time with taking pictures of themselves. Seriously, what did that accomplish?
Seth Aaron's model is offered a DKNY shoot that pays a good bit of money, but it would be during the next runway show for Project Runway. She makes the choice to pass up the gig and stay because she believes in Seth Aaron. Awwwww!
Cerri is sent home after Jonathan proclaims that he has to change models since the judges don't think he dress her body type properly. Sigh. Phooey. I liked her! BOOO! Phooey.
Next week - I'll be an aunt! Oh and PR and MOTR will be on. I think. Meh.
