A bad sign

Uh oh. On Project Runway, eliminated designers came back to help with the avant-garde astrological challenge. We knew this was going to get prickly, but I didn’t expect it to be disappointing. I’m talking disappointing on the design-side, not the catty-complaining-back talking-drama-side.

Double uh oh. Terri and Keith are partners? We all sensed this trouble from the beginning. While I think Terri’s talented and would have liked to see her collection at Bryant Park, her attitude is too much. They say, “Karma is a #&%(#.” Peace out, Terri.

We also knew Blaynelicious wasn’t long for the show. As soon as Michael Kors said his design looked like it was “pooping fabric,” I knew it was over. And, I can’t even get into the discussion of Kenley’s over-confident mediocrity. My steadfast assumption that it will be an all ladies final took a beating this week. It was the guys who came out on top.

When watching, I liked that Jerell was working the multi-texture angle again. But, I have to admit, after two days of reflection, and taking one look at the picture in the gallery photos, I can’t believe Jerell won with this design. The “schoolmarm” fabric for the skirt makes the model look large and frumpy. I can’t even pair shoes with this outfit. I just don’t like it.

The big surprise was Joe. After last week, I would have put a bounty on his head. But he came through with this layered ruffled look. And, I positively adore these shoes from Guiseppe Zanotii. That brown crocodile rosette is amazingly gorgeous. Gorgeous. Amazing. Gorgeous. Amazing. (I meant to be repetitive.)

The design and shoe pairing I’ll leave you with is the winner of last year’s avant-garde challenge. Christian Siriano and Chris March’s design was magnificent. These Fendi platforms are too.

  1. I’m in complete agreement on all your points. Loved that Chris March dress too. I also loved the Scorpio dress. Think this episode was a really bad idea. Hopefully they will learn and not do it again.

    Leannimal made the scorpio dress, right? The one with the outer “shell”? I did like that too. I think she and Korto are still favorites for Bryant Park.

  3. I knew Terri wasn’t going to be a finalist- she is working at Victoria Secret with ANthony- though kept that to myself as to not spoil it. She DID NOT deserve to go home this week, however. I thought she was waaaaay better than Kenley and Suede.

    She went home because her attitude stank giant poo, and she was unnecessarily difficult to work with. And, I don’t know who Kenley thinks she is, but to say she will “set Heidi straight, if she is talking nonsense.” Unbelievable nerve.

  5. I haven’t been following project runway, so I thank you for this post. It’s caught me up to speed.

  6. Just caught up last night. I do not know why Kenley thinks she is so great. I found her outfit just costume and weird for the sake of being weird but not taking where it should go. I liked the scorpion outfit. Keith is a jerk and needs to figure out how to work with people without being a total baby. In the end, did he do anything without fringe?
    I like Korto.
