Project Runway: Season 5, Episode 3.
They named it Bright Lights/Big City.
I’m renaming it Retro Rehash Complete With Smoke.
What was up with the Project Runway judges tonight (and what about Sandra Bernhard as a guest judge)? And what was up with all that watercolor fabric? I mean really, whatup? One of Michael Kors’ comments hit the nail on the head: “I mean, a girl who doesn’t remember the style of the 80s would so be into that dress.” (Or something like that). At first they were starting to make fun of the bubble 80’s dress that Kenley created,
then all the sudden the drugs kicked in and they started raving about it. I wanted to puke. It actually looks metalic and shiny here.Then the second watercolor came out (Terri’s dress).
I thought this was worse during the show, but after seeing this pic the bubble number up there is much worse. Michael’s comment to Kenley was backhanded if nothing else. It really betrayed what should have been his true feelings: That’s so 80s. It’s been done and it looked horrible back then too. Oh wait, did Nina just say it looked like 80s designers? Hmm, I better come up with a compliment, and quick!…
During the show I was all for Leanne’s outfit.
An architectural skirt that was very well tailored. Cute petals that were sewn with two different blacks. Paired with a simple black top. That skirt was rockin’. She really captured the look of the planter she had taken a picture of. Not to mention Heidi said it looked like it came from a store (not just sewn in a day) and she’d wear it in a heartbeat. Then on the runway we got the first look at Jerell’s dress.
FABULOUS!!! Where were his highlights throughout the show? And why wasn’t he in the top three when the two throwbacks to one of the worst fashion decades in history were? Another drug moment. Has to be. That dress is the best thing that’s been produced so far this season.
So with two throwbacks and a great architectural outfit to choose from how in the world did Leanne’s not win? I’ll tell you why. Although the judges are all the time saying, “if you’re unsure, go for less” (they told this to Emily) they never vote for that as a winner. They like the crazy, takin’ a chance dresses. That and they had to be on drugs.
The last two designers on the runway were Emily and Jennifer. They shot Jennifer’s dress to heck during the judging and voting.
They said she was boring and Heidi didn’t care to see anything else she designed. How in the world did she not get ‘auf’ed? Sure, Emily’s dress had ruffles that fluttered across her boobs,
but the judges didn’t trash that nearly as much as Jennifer’s “matronly” and “boring” (might I add maternity-looking) dress.
I don’t get it. Then again, I don’t do drugs. I wanted to post pictures, but Bravo is apparently embarrassed of the outcome of the show and how the designers stepped all over themselves to be wrong; they have yet to get those episode 3 pics up!
