Judging the Judges: Klum, Garcia & Kardashian

Posted on August 12, 2011

One thing that pleases us immensely about this season of Project Runway is that the LadyJudges are bringin’ it to the judging panel. That’s as it should be, don’t you think?

Let’s score them like it’s a competition. Why? We’re bitches.

T by Alexander Wang dress. Barneys NY belt. Wolford leggings.
Jimmy Choo booties. Wildlife by Heidi Klum cuffand earrings.

T by Alexander Wang One Shoulder Jersey Dress


Wow. We honestly wouldn’t have thought it possible, but someone managed to put together a look that makes Heidi Klum look awkward and harsh. The dress simply doesn’t fit her all that well – tight in the bottom and loose up top. We suspect the addition of the ginormous belt is what’s throwing the fit off, but that doesn’t explain why we can see her bra so clearly. Also, the black tights make the look bottom-heavy and her hair is absolutely atrocious.

Score: 3/10.

Givenchy dress. Christian Louboutin shoes. Loren Jewelry.

Givenchy Bicolor Stretch Cady Dress

It’s a sharp and chic little dress – and it magically went cheap and trashy the second Kardashian skin touched it.

Oh, we’re teasing. We think she’s a total attention whore and pretty much useless, but for the most part, we think she goes out looking head-turning and fierce a decent amount of the time. But hacking 6 inches off the skirt -WHEN YOU’RE GOING TO ONLY BE SHOT SITTING DOWN – was a particularly skanky thing to do and the addition of all that heavy jewelry to such a starkly simple dress reveals some pretty bad instincts.

Score: 2/10.

The only time we want to see panties on Project Runway is when a poor model is forced to wear something half-done.

 

Giambattista Valli Dress. Miu Miu Suede Platform Sandals.

Giambattista Fall 2011 Collection

Ahh… there it is: actual style. We don’t think the drape on the hip is the most flattering design element in the world, but the combination of the graphic print, the drape in the bodice, the addition of the belt, and the classically fierce shoes pushes this look far past the tack-o-rama sitting on either side of it.

Score: 9/10.

We would have liked to have seen some earrings, Miss Garcia.

      Sorry to be taken by a fit of hyperbole, but dressing Nina for a challenge is the BEST IDEA EVER!!! I love her fabulousity, her barely hidden annoyance at shitty design, her outrage when Robert put sequins on the leopard…

    • Nora Mulllin

      I could not be more excited to see what cracktastic stuff they whip up for her. Unlike dressing Heidi (short, tight, shiny) dressing Nina will be an actual challenge for a lot of these “designers.” Should give us some hilarious results and fabulously bitchy comments from the judging panel.

        Sophia Loren, I think, said a lady only crosses her legs at the ankle. Frankly, I think it depends on the lady and the thinness of her legs. Kim would be sharing a bit more thigh were she to attempt it.

        • Anonymous

          I don’t think it’s Sophia Loren that said it, but it is actually true – you’re not really supposed to cross your legs at the knee. Just at the ankle. It’s very hard to pull off, you have to keep your thighs pressed together. Of course, those who follow the traditional ‘rules’ this closely would never wear a skirt this short, so….

          • Anonymous

            I didn’t mean Sophia said it *first*, just that that’s where I heard it. I think you also have to coyly twist your legs to the side, sidesaddle style. It’s not easy, but it is a good thigh workout. And yeah, the shorter the dress the worse it’s going to come off.

          • Anonymous

            I’m a week late, but I think that awkward director’s style chair makes crossing at the ankles with both knees to the same side really difficult.

    I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I thought it was hysterical that when Heidi mentioned the other judges, instead of a brief bio for Kimwhateverishian she simply said, “… and Kim Kardashian”!!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UCLO5V2YD36T7QMPKOC7YXPOFU Erica

      We noticed that too.  My husband and I couldn’t decide if she just said KK because she has no CV of note or, as I like to think, it was her silent, German way of saying, “this woman is useless and we all know it, but the other producers are making me have her as a guest judge.”

  • Anonymous

    Wait a minute, what about the Duchess? (big grin)

    I actually didn’t hate Heidi’s as much as you did (didn’t love it either), but in total agreement about Miss Kardasian, ugh.

  • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

    Heidi’s problem is the dreaded Curse of the Molded Cup Bra.  A properly made (and she can afford it!) strapless bra doesn’t need ANY molding in the cups.  Molding is stiff, doesn’t flatter for draping and will show a line beneath any garment not made of a stiff material.  You’re not working for Victoria’s Secret anymore, Heidi, you can buy a real bra again.

    • Anonymous

      Correction: a properly made strapless bra, for women of Heidi’s size, does not need any molding.

      • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

        Nope.  Almost all of a support from a bra comes from the cups and the band.  Well cut and constructed cups, with a good back band (3-hooks+) or long line, you don’t need ANY molding.  Plus a wide band won’t dig into you as it supports the weight.

    Nina’s is the best, but the belt breaking up the drape seems odd to me.

    I have no use for any Kardashian.

  • scottyf

    From the angle of the last pic Ms. chocolate chaser Kardashian looks like she has stockings on, with a big-ass hole in the right thigh. Adds to the stripper-coming-off-of-her-shift look.

    And I feel a kinship to Ms. Garcia in the last pic as well: girlfriend greases up those legs like me wearing shorts in the summertime. Viva Vaseline!!!

      Ha chocolate chaser!!  Anyway–that “hole” in her hose is actually a highlight of some kind, probably from the big light-reflecting panel right out of the picture. 
       I still wonder why Kim K and not Khloe K, who actually seems to have some fashion sense, having been on Fashion Police with our cute-as-a-button Kelly Osbourne.  At least she didn’t say “I would totally wear that!”

    Nina looks great.  Heidi looks hideous.  I will not mention the other one.

  • Anonymous

    You know, I kind of love Heidi’s outfit, because it’s such a 1980s look and it brings me right back to Junior and Senior High School. all she needs is an armful of rubber bracelets and she’s right out of 1984. But alas, TLo is right. It’s a look that’s really not doing her any favors. Truth is, it’s much too young for her. I just don’t think anyone over 25 should be attempting this look.

    Oh please, you were NOT teasing about KK instantly cheapening this great little Givenchy dress. It’s true and we all thought the same thing.

    Nina’s dress is beautiful. I don’t mind the side thing, because she’s slim enough to pull it off. Love the shoes and the addition of the skinny belt. Nina’s hair and makeup, however, never fail to bore me. *yawn*

    • Rand Ortega

      I thought Heidi’s outfit, hair & makeup were very Robert Palmer video circa 1986. All she needed was an electric guitar w/out the cord or amp.

        Rand—
        I was wondering what Heidi’s look reminded me of, and you’re absolutely right! It’s Palmer zombie girl all the way. She just needs to stop smiling and undulate her body while fake-playing an electric bass, and the image will be complete.

    Nina needs to ditch the belt. It ruins the lovely lines of the drape.  And I love how Kim K is covering her crotch with her folder, as if she didn’t think of the fact that shortening the skirt would cause a problem.

      I too was at least ambivalent on the belt.  And it’s like the first time in recent TLo memory that the belt seemed excessive instead of screamingly absent (I’m thinking you, Cathy Cambridge and Cameron Diaz….).  We’ve seen so many looks recently where the belt was glaringly absent that it’s like Ms. Fashion Editor was making a point of saying, “Bitches, this is the accessory you’ve been forgetting”…. but maybe for the wrong dress.

      BTW, I loved seeing Nina’s comments to the proposed designs for her next week:  “No.”   ” No! “  ” NO!”

      Ah, just the words one wants to hear from Nina.  Makes up for some of the cracktastic designs she’s inexplicably defended in the past….

    I think we should all be supremely grateful that the Kardashian was wearing any panties at all. I like that Nina put a belt on the dress because otherwise it kind of looks like an elegant baby sling. Her ever-same hairdo, however, is putting her into Anniston territory. Heidi just looks scary.

  • Lattis

    The other day (speaking of Judging People) I asked my kids who they’d rather have as a mom, Heidi or Nina. I said I thought I’d rather be Nina’s kid (because I am nerdy and she strikes me as more cerebral than Heidi) and my oldest son agreed. Nina. My husband said he thought Heidi would be more fun and active. So, my youngest son hadn’t said anything . . . “Who’d you rather have as a mom?” and he answered, “Neither. Tim Gunn.”

    • Lattis

      Yeah . . . so it just occurred to me as I reread that . . . my husband would prefer Heidi because she’s more “fun,” and “active?” Snort. Nothing to do with the boobs and all. Man, I’m slow.

      Heidi’s hair definitely looks horrible, but at least she’s not afraid to cut it, pull it back, tie it up, etc. She changes it up on occasion, unlike LaNina and her same old hairstyle that she’s had forever. She’s like Carol Brady in the Brady Bunch Movie, when they cut her hair and it was exactly the same.

    Frau Seal has apparently discovered bright lipstick, which isn’t a good thing.  I find that pick lipstick to be very tacky.

    I also don’t get the Nina love, I often think she looks like she had a good start and then gave up.  I think it’s the hair, which is always the same, never a variation.  She’s not a teenager anymore, the hair is beginning to be aging instead of youthful.  But I know that many think she’s a dazzling fashion plate, so I’ll not be too harsh.  I do think the belt was a mistake, though.  I do think the dress is cute in spite of the hip pouch.

    A Kardashian attention whore is never going to be my choice for a PR judge.

    I know that my membersip here will be revoked but I actually kinda like the way Frau Seal looks. Sure, it’s a bit severe and youthful, but she’s in amazing physical shape and this look really plays it up. I love how they’re all wearing cliche black though. For me, the only one not pulling it off is KK. She just looks ridiculous especially with that group of bangles from Claire’s swinging from her wrists. And the peep-show…Thanks for changing our opinion of you by appearing on PR, Kim.

    I’m guessing the harsh hair on Heidi was in anticipation of the weather. It was a soupy, drizzly day. The fact that Miss Nina’s hair looks so fabulous is pretty miraculous. All the little minions who are usually assigned to peel her grapes must have been furiously fanning her.

Lovelovelove. Would love to give my legs the same treatment but can’t wear heels at all. Also not German, and alas, very knock-kneed. Still.

    Heidi is still wearing that alarming color of lipstick that isn’t particularly flattering.  She’s a beautiful woman, she doesn’t need to create distractions on her face. 

    KK probably didn’t want to cross her legs because she has cellulite and the skirt was too short for her to pull it down.  And the black shoes she’s wearing truly make her feet look like horse hooves.

    Nina is stylish, off course. Well, she SHOULD be ! She’s the editor in chief of a fashion magazine ! She can simply not be seen in track pants with greasy hair, can she ?

    If it’s warm enough for a Wilma, it’s definitely the wrong weather for thick black tights and vice versa. The whole outfit looks seasonally weird and far too harsh for her. 1/10

    The funny thing about KK’s get up is that you can tell she’s trying SO hard to be a classy fashionista.  2/10 because I love the dress on a different person.

    Nina needs to realise she’s getting older and either bare arms or legs, not both. Her beautiful dress doesn’t need a belt and her legs would have looked much less grey and knobbly with sheer hose and an elegant closed toe shoe.

    Once again, all must bow down to Empress Garcia.
    Heidi seems to be channeling the Matrix’ Trinity and some access channel dominatrix with her harsh makeup and don’t f@ck with me styling. It’s odd.Kim K needs to get a real friend to help see the truth about her choices.  As my friend says, “you think you’re looking cute when you’re really looking curious.”

    Even if Heidi is dressed for the wrong season, I think she looks fabulous. I have always loved the tight black dress/black tights/black shoes look. It’s a little 80s-inspired here, but not so much that she looks out of style.

    Nina’s dress is great, although I like it more without the belt. As always, I give her a pass for her hair.

    Kim K. – /sigh/ It’s like she just can’t help but be tacky. If ever there was proof that money can’t buy class and elegance…..

    So, is it still “the good china” if it’s showing on a Kardashian?  I’m thinkin’ that china has a few chips in it…

    • Anonymous

      A few chips and a lot of old food.  It’s no longer the good china–it’s the Melmac you eat off of when you just don’t care.  I am so fed up with trashy Hollywood reality queens.  And she’s a judge!!!  Of other people’s clothes!!!!!

      I like Heidi’s ensemble (the bra is a problem, I agree), but I am not loving the severe hair and makeup at all. It is so Teutonic that it makes me twitch.

      Nina, as always, looks like she just threw on any old thing out of her closet and ended up looking amazing.  I don’t know how she does it. Does she ever perspire? She looks fabulous from head to pedicured toes and platforms.  The hair is getting a little boring, but if it ain’t broke…. amirite?

  • Anonymous

    While I don’t care for the severity of Heidi’s lipstick, KK’s make-up was ridiculous. Those false eyelashes looked terrible! And how could she even see?!

    Nina looks chic and effortless. I don’t normally like the design-for-a-celebrity challenges, but next week’s challenge is sure to be full of Nina’s contemptuous critiques!

  • Anonymous

    I would knock a point off Nina’s score for the addition of the belt. I don’t like it. I think it wrecks that drape of the dress. Still, she comes out the winner here. Can’t see enough of Kardashian’s dress to know how it looks on her, except shortness, which you noted. 2nd week in a row of bad lipstick on Heidi. And that hair makes her look a little Alfred E. Newman around the ears.

    while the undie thing is a huuuge faux pas, Kim looks way better in the way of hair and makeup than Klum… Heidi looks like some kind of alien creature from the neck up, while Kim looks pretty and fresh. From the neck down, she is a train wreck, but Heidi seriously needs a new makeup gay, because her current want seems to have some huge grudge against her.

    Nina should have been the hands down winner, having not screwed the proportions of her dress by hacking six inches off the bottom. But then she had to add the belt, which ruined the drape, and those strappy hooves, which draw the eye right to the feet. 2/10.

    You’re exactly right with both Heidi and the Kardashian clone…..when the designer makes the dress knee length, or near-knee length it’s because that’s what makes the proportions work. Chopping 6 inches off ruins the damn design. LEAVE IT ALONE.  Jeez……

    I like Heidi’s outfit from afar. I didn’t see the outline until I saw it up close here. I actually like her outfit, except for that third photo of her here makes it look very ill-fitting and unflattering. But overall I liked hers, and I’m loving that jewelry line of hers. 7/10 for me.

    Kardashian’s outfit looked better originally before the alterations, but even then I’m not that impressed by that dress, its a snooze, so I can see why she’d try to accessorize, but overall very flat, and too tight and short, and those gigantic heels. Don’t mind her slicked ponytail and make up though, 3/10

    I hated Nina’s dress, or maybe I hated the way she wore it. On the runway it looks beautiful and I love the drape down the front, looks very light and elegant. Nina ruined it with that belt, which eliminated the lightness of the drape down the front and the dress itself. The belt makes it look very heavy, and kind of matronly to me. And the same hair from the past 8 seasons, nothing new there. 5/10, the belt ruined the look for me

    • Anonymous

      i agree, the belt blew it.  it destroys the beauty of the drape and adds one too many design elements.  the huge floral print and the drape are enough.  and something is off about the skirt, it seems to spotlight her knees, which are not so cute here. if it was an inch or two longer, and narrower at the hemline it might be more flattering.  i also liked heidi’s look much better that t-lo did.  it does look a bit cheap, but she’s working it in a spicy sexy way.  i say take three points away from nina and give them to heidi.
