Here’s the thing. I feel I should tell you that as I write this, I may be slightly intoxicated. And by “may” I mean I am. My friend Mere is leaving for South America for 9 months and I just got home from her goodbye happy hour, (WE’LL MISS YOU MERE!!!), where I imbibed one or two or four adult sodas. And by “sodas”I mean club soda…with vodka. What What! This should be interesting. Let’s watch some Project Runway All-Stars!
I lied. This is not interesting. It is blah. Is it just me or is this season rather dull?? The basic theme – nobody likes Laura Kathleen. Apparently, she thinks she must have been a saint in a previous life because she’s so blessed in this one and constantly tells everyone how much money she has. Um, yeah. I’d roll my eyes and laugh at you too. Also she apparently has been tasked with the awkward transitions this week. Come everybody, let’s go to Mood. Ok, everybody get in line at Mood. Time’s up.
THE CHALLENGE: The designers met Carolyn out in Long Island City near a big warehouse covered in graffiti. Oh excuuuuse me! “Aerosol Art.” No! It’s graffiti. It’s cool. It’s definitely art and those that create it are definitely artist, but let’s not be pretentious.
The designers got the chance to meet 3 of the best graffiti artists and then had to create their own “aerosol art” on fabric to use to construct this week’s look. I wasn’t overly impressed with any of the prints.
Commercial break – Whatever! Isaac Mizrahi does not drive a Chevy!
THE WORKROOM: Booooring! Even Joanna was blah tonight. She didn’t even have any zingers. This makes me sad. —>
Based on what I could see in the workroom, Kayne and Suede’s designs are hideous. And I’m a genius and/or clairvoyant (see the bottom 2 below) or maybe just not blind. None of the designs are that impressive on the dress form. We’ll see once they get on the runway.
Commercial break – I want to see “Silver Linings Playbook.”
Designers Costello and Tagliapietra were the guest judges this week and seeing them was the highlight of the episode. Carolyn is annoying. Unfortunately I was wrong and it did not get more interesting once the runway started. I think Andre was robbed. Here’s how it played out.
Safe as Houses
Andrae WAS ROBBED!
Emilio -Winner, winner chicken dinner!
She most certainly DOES NOT look like Kate Middleton. Maybe if someone captured poor Kate and made her wear hideous dresses, but even that’s a stretch.
Suede says bye bye
So that’s it. I’m going to bed and hoping for better next time. Here’s what Meghan “Team Dmitry” has to say:
I was sober when watching last night’s episode and I too was bored, bored, bored. I almost turned it off! Someone better have a major diva moment soon or I am not going to last through the whole season. Where is Joshua’s biting comments and fighting with everyone when we need it?!?!?!
I liked Althea and Anthony Ryan’s dresses the best. I think the judges made the right choice sending Suede home. I’m now officially done with Carolyn after her uninspired, slightly insulting little “speech” to Suede as she was sending him on his way. Sigh!
