Was I in bizzaro world last night? Was the group's taste just really off?
Ok, I liked Michael C.'s dress, but I think Casanova said it best (wait, did I just say that?) "The dress that Michael made (pause)....every girl from Puerto Rico have that dress in their closet."
I laughed out loud when Ivy screamed "WTF! There I said it!" Everyone in the room was dumbfounded. If anything, it was entertaining.
And I know I didn't agree last week with the judges pick, but again, HOW did the Michael D's top and skirt not win?! Paired with the hat, I thought it was amazing! It complimented it perfectly! It really looked like something I'd see on the runway.
Speaking of complimenting, why, why, WHY, was Valerie's dress in the top three? Philip Treacy seemed the only sane one there when he questioned it. It went with the hat/mask about as much as a fish goes with a bicycle. When Michael Kors said "I think in this instance I'm happy she didn't do a black chiffon and lace gown." I was thinking then why did you even have a themed challenge to begin with? I mean yes, it DIDN'T have to be a black lacey gown, but at least that would have complimented the mask. If this weren't the bizzaro episode she would be in the bottom three and they would be criticizing her not following the challenge.
Speaking of the bottom three....Mondo....WTH? Why was he and Peach not there? I liked Peach's look I'd wear it to a party but I think Project Runway is about looking innovative and avant garde. Her stuff looks like patterns I've seen in Simplicity. Nothing groundbreaking there.
I think Christopher was all ready to be in the top three and when they started really tearing into his jacket you could see the look on his face just melt. I think the judges were right about the material looking like drapery but there's NO WAY it was worse than Mondo's clown costume.
The only thing I agreed with the judges about was Kristin going home. When she was talking with April about being in the top two, she was clearly deluded. The black satin was heavy and cheap looking, the dress had puckers all over the place and looked like someone sewed a bunch of fabric together blindfolded. It should have been something delicate, maybe even vagina looking? I think someone else could have totally slam dunked that dress.
Finally, Gretchen. I'm really glad they backed off in this episode. I had about enough. She has a certain articulation to her words that just grates on me. The moment she opened her mouth I was all ready to be annoyed. Thankfully that didn't happen. But I have to add, she really glammed it up last night with the handkerchief top in the sewing room and smoky eyes at panel. Maybe she foresaw all our comments about her haircut?
I think iheartdesign said it best in my last post, " She's not entirely a MEAN girl, right? But I think its just as frustrating to watch someone so irritating!"
All I can say is I'm really excited to see next week's "team theme". I mean, can you just imagine?
