T LOunge

Posted on August 18, 2011

Bitter Kittens, the T LOunge is once again open to one and all. Head to the airport, because we’re in a THX 1138-slash-2001 kind of a mood. And if you don’t know what that means, a nerd or film student will be along shortly to explain it to you.

El Tubo, Lima, Peru

Yes, we’re off to Peru to feel coolly minimalistic in a “Bettina & Max” kind of way. And if you don’t get the reference, a gay will be along shortly to explain it to you.

Fabulous little space, no? The chairs don’t look all that comfortable but it sure looks easy to hose down if anyone gets sick. All it needs is Ann-Margret in an egg chair. And if that’s not ringing any bells, a baby boomer will be along shortly to explain it to you.

Kerry Washington and Marie Claire EIC Joanna Coles are sitting in the guest judge chairs tonight but we don’t even know why they bothered since it’s All About Nina:

 

Oh, that’s right. We forgot what a delicious little bitch Joanna Coles can be. With two fashion editors on the panel, Kerry better step up her game or she won’t get any airtime at all. One thing’s for sure: this should be the opportunity we’ve been waiting for to bust out the S9 NINACAPS, y’all!

So darlings, here’s your ice-breaker: Among all the PR contestants past and present, who would be most likely to win a challenge making you an outfit? And what kind of outfit would you ask for? Work? Evening? Sporty?

        Yep. I’m totally out of my idiom here. I do remember Ann Marg-rock on “The Flintstones,” though.

      No contest.  I’d get Laura Bennett to make me an evening gown or a cocktail dress.  

      • Rand Ortega

        Ditto, Ms. Mary!

        Laura or Rami for an evening gown. Either one would be just fine by me.

      I don’t know if it’s bad or good that I got all the references. I guess I’m just an old sci-fi nerd with a flare for the dramatic.

      As far as designers go, I’d like Nina (was that her name, the sixties referential b&w graphic designer?). But what I like and what looks good on me are two different things. I’m curvy and busty so maybe Kenley? I can rock a Mad Men-esque look even though I want to wear go-go dresses.

        I’m with you, Mondo all the way! I love his use of color, and he makes clothes that I fantasize about myself wearing. Being an old lady, I’d probably be better off having Laura Bennett make something for me, but I will dream about a wardrobe by Mondo!

      P.S.  Not a nerd, not gay, not a boomer and still got all the references.  Yes, I want a Bozo button.

      Seth Aaron, and day wear.  I’d want to wear it a lot, and since I haven’t had a cocktail dress in my wardrobe in 3 years, let alone formal wear, I don’t think that would work for me:)

      LOVE THE THX REFERENCE!    So exciting when geekdom and fashion collide!

      BTW, apropos of nothing, I bought one of the dresses that’s been in heavy rotation on the ModCloth ad on the home page, and man, it was just awful!  I’m pretty sure any of the PR contestants could have done a better job:(

      • Anonymous

        Really? I’ve always wondered about those ModCloth clothes. They look really cute. Not good quality?
         

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          This is the 3rd I’ve ordered from them and the first 2 were wonderful.  Both beautifully made.  This one, however, was apparently cut by a midget with an attitude, because the proportions were TERRIBLE.  I’m only 5’4″ so there’s no reason a skirt on a “regular” length dress barely covers my ass — and the top was off, too.  Normally I have to take straps up, but on this one, they were too short. 

          I would highly recommend them in general, though.  I find a lot of dresses there that aren’t too badly priced, but get comments a lot.  I’ve ended up writing down the web address for them more than once:)

          • Anonymous

            Interesting…thanks. I don’t have much shopping where I live so end up ordering online a lot. And returning a lot. Always looking for good sources. 

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              One thing I would caution with ModCloth: pay attention to the reviews or the notes on the dress.  There are a lot of comments about how something fits, like if it runs small in a particular area.

            • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=668425491 Daniela ‘Dani’ Weiss-Bronstein

              I have 2 ModCloth dresses – LOVE. I have an hourglass figure, and have a hard time finding clothes. They have great designs and good sales – definitely look at the reviews, and drop them a question via Facebook – they’re great about getting back to people.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              And I LOVE how people will post pictures with their review of the garment on — so helpful.  How many TLo posts do we see talking about how a dress only looks good on a model for 60 seconds on a runway?  These are pictures of just normal people who have already bought the dress.  And generally fairly on the ball people too — unlike some sites’ review sections:)

        Yes, they are iconic Bertoia chairs.  And they are uncomfortable.  LOL!  Quite often, they have thin cushions to help out but still…. not my favorite of the mid century icons.  Actually, as a designer, I really don’t care for this lounge at all.  Too severe and sterile for my taste.  I like my midcentury modern with a juxtaposition of warmth and organic.

          Really? I own two of the bird chairs and I think they’re very comfortable. But I do have the pads on them,

            The pads truly make the difference but for those of us more “ample” figured folks, still not great. LOL!  I do love my vintage Eames and Bacelona chair though, they hold my tush perfectly.  :)

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GPS2MXWCVOIN4WMTWBHLXMQYMQ PattyP

        I have four of them in my office – with the pads – and find them incredibly comfortable. BUT — I’m really tall. My shorter guests have a hard time sitting in them and looking professional – they either can’t reach the floor if they sit all the way back, or they have to try and sit forward in them and risk tipping. They look great with my Eames coffee table. (Not bragging – I am just fortunate to work in a VERY cool space!)

      The designer would be Uli and the concept would beachy resortwear.  The dress would be colorful, cool and flowy.

      Rami could design a dress for me any day. In fact, one just like the final challenge (I’m a purple fan) or that gold and white one from his runway show.  I love draping, dahlings.  That, and he’s not bad to look at while he’s sewing my dress with no shirt on.  Yes, that would be in the contract.  If I need a more casual outfit, Seth Aaron could whip me up a fabu houndstooth jacket and a killer pair of pants.

      Regarding the question du jour, my first thought was Laura Bennett but after I reminded myself that I don’t go anywhere requiring cocktail dresses or gowns (insert frowny face), I decided that it would be Jillian Lewis and some of her killah sportswear, including a fit-and-flare coat (I don’t care if they’re over now!).  I think that makes me a Sportswear Chick.

      It would be a toss-up between Seth Aaron (I ADORE him), Leanne or Jay(because, obviously.).  Huh.I just realized I picked all winners. I also love Jillian and April, but I don’t think I could rock their aesthetics. Also, now I have to go get my daily dose of pretty by looking at Jay’s winning collection again. SO SO perfect.  
      I have one of his skirts from The Colony, and I just love it!

      Gordana, to make me an absolutely perfect, demure evening gown a la her museum challenge piece.  Because hey, if I can imagine affording a private designer, I can darned well imagine having a fabulous ball to go to.

      Or Austin, because it would be fun to live in Austin-world.

      Much as I love Seth Aaron as a really fun contestant, I can’t imagine wearing his clothes, though I’m with muzan-e for him dressing a child (in my case, a hypothetical one).  Has he done a kids’ line yet?

      I haven’t been watching PR long enough to have a good sense of who I would want to design for me. But it would have to be someone who’s okay with a curvy client. Actually, I’d love a really beautiful winter coat–in something other than black–that I could wear for the next twenty years–that would go with my large collection of fabulous winter hats. So someone who could do that.

      I think I’d like a gin and tonic, with Rose’s Lime and Sapphire Gin.

      …Probably Andy.  I love Mila’s stuff, but I’m too curvy for most of it.  And in reference to the criticism that his designs were too sci-fi/video game-esque… well, when Michael Kors criticized his styling as ‘Blade Runner’ (in the ‘inspired by New York’ challenge), I rolled my eyes and muttered that he had it all wrong – it was The Matrix.  

      I like my sci-fi and video games.  When I’m a crazy rich mad scientist (HAH!), he can be my personal designer.  >.>

      As for this week’s question, it’s a difficult one for me for two reasons. Firstly, I’ve only been watching PR since Season 7, so I’ve got a rather limited pool of designers to reference. Secondly, I’m a straight male (rare as it may be on this site), so evening gowns and cocktail dresses don’t really fit well into my wardrobe.

      That said, though, I liked a lot of Seth Aaron’s looks, and I think his style would translate well into menswear. (Didn’t he say at one point that he wanted to do a line for Target? Whatever happened to that?) And despite her mildly-controversial departure midway through the season, I was a big Maya fan and I thought she could have gone far in her season.

      I like the Lounge choice for tonight; it’s a clean, almost Apple-like setting, though I agree the chairs need some padding. Can’t wait for the show and the NinaCaps!

      Love you boys (along with every single post you have ever done!), and have been giggling over all of your references! I’m torn between Seth Aaron or Laura as my dream designer, with Mila coming in at a very close runner-up. I wear a ton of vintage, with 20’s/30’s and 60s (both early “Mad Men” and mid/mod 60’s) looks probably being my favorites…so, how does a girl choose (though, it’s so much fun to ponder all of this)? Although speaking of Bettina and Max, how much would you LOVE to see Bubble as a Project Runway contestant? Now that would be genius television! One can only imagine what she would design for Heidi, let alone Nina (hell, I would pay money to see her design something for the Duchess, too)! xoxol

      Let’s see… like others, I’m too short and curvy and not quite young enough for some of my favorite designers’ work.  That being said, in my fantasy world I get to be greedy with no repercussions, so I’ll take:

      – a coat from Jillian, since I live way up north where it’s a frozen wasteland 6 months of the year and I’m sick of looking like a puffy blob half my life
      – a knit something from Gordana so that I’m equally comfortable and look equally great when I take off my coat
      – a dress from Ulli for my mid-winter sanity-saving escape for a brief dose of sunshine
      – and whatever Jay wants to make for me

      As for tonight, I cannot WAIT to see Nina eat some designers for breakfast!  (They’re not even good enough for her lunch.)  And the NINACAPS will be the highlight of my Friday, I’m sure!  =)

      • Marie Drucker

        I want exactly the same, except perhaps the dress from Ulli. I’m too short to do one justice.
        Jay can make me placemats, and I’d be happy.

      I want Korto to make me a week’s worth of day-to-evening looks. Something tells me she’d know just what to do with my proportions, and I love her aesthetic.

      I’m going to assume my hypothetical outfit is the product of one of those dastardly pairs challenges and call the Kenley Collins/Seth Aaron team for the win … I think one of her flaired skirt rockabilly dresses would be kick-ass paired with a Seth Aaron blazer.

      I think Micheal Knight (I’m not spelling it the stupid way) or Chris March would do me justice, but I’m leaning  towards Sissy Bear. I’m a girly girl so of course I want evening wear cause I’m going have the fellas in the L’Oreal room give me a fierce pair of lashes to match.

    • http://badkittyknits.blogspot.com KittyKnits

      Okay, I can’t remember their names (isn’t that horrible) — wait, I think one was Jillian!  In the same season as Christian Siriano (God, my memory’s already failing); two of them designed the sort of equestrian riding coat together.  It was the challenge where their inspiration was the model’s whacked out hairdo.  It was my first season watching Project Runway, and I’m still drawn to that piece.  I would ask those ladies (probably Jillian; doesn’t she do all of the coats?) to make me an evening or work look because I just LOVE that equestrian-Dominatrix-borderline-pirate look.
      And if that fails, I’m sure Christian and Chris March could collaborate again and create something gorgeous and decadent and just shy of completely over the top for me.  :-)

      You know, I’ve been kind of half-watching Lifetime’s reruns of the past couple weeks while waiting for the Main Event at 9.  Does anyone else notice the complete, utter lack of talent in this group?  In the first 3 weeks, NOT ONE designer has made anything “special.”  the closest IMO was the bird seed dress (sorry TLo to disagree on that), but even there, it stood head and shoulders above a pretty piss-poor group.

      I’m worried that this season is going to to be really dreary.  No one to root for, now that Bert has gone from Dream Diva to Devlish Dervish.

      Hey, everyone!  Oh, I’ll have a Makers Mark on the rocks please. This lounge is really bright and the floors look a tad slick. I’ll  have to remember to pace myself with my MMs or else I might tottle off my heels( hee hee).
      Well, I would Like E. Sosa or Uli to design me anything they wanted.
      I wonder who will cry tonight and how Ms. Bert will behave. 
      Oh, and if I happen to have a mishap with those floors, could someone pick me up and just pour me into one those chairs? It would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.

        I have your back, # if drinks is directly proportional to heel height, way to think ahead. I’m having an old fashioned Thursday night myself.

      Seth Aaron, as I love menswear-inspired stuff, as well as graphic designs with bold colors. He’s got half my style to a T. The other half of my style is vintage/vintage-inspired, so Kenley, despite her bitchiness, might be able to make me some pin-up dresses.

      I LOVE how they just advertised for a Bambi DVD on the episode where Fallene has her meltdown and demise.

      When did Bravo start cross promoting on Lifetime?   I usually bounce between those two channels, so when I see the Bravo commercial, I think I’m on the Bravo station, and have to go back to Lifetime, which actually puts me on Bravo.  Yeah, I guess it doesn’t take much to confuse me.

      I thought Kimberly deserved her win.  Viktor was bitchy, but I thought he should have been in the “safe” group–I didn’t like those weird-looking shoulders.  This is the second time they’ve gushed over a skirt that has deliberately exaggerated hips.  Is.. aagh, I forget the word… the hip-bustle, for lack of a better term, coming back?

      Love Anya, but in no way is a back that drops that far appropriate for an office.

      Help with sewing toward the end?  Can’t say it bothers me overmuch if it didn’t bother Laura Kathleen.  Cheating would be if, say, she grabbed something that Laura Kathleen had sewn and glued it to her dress.  Or looked over someone’s shoulder at the sketch and copied it.

      Poor Julie. I knew she was going as soon as the droat walked out.  She seems really nice, but that was one fugly garment.

      Of the two out of the same fabric (which I think must have been GMTA)  I liked Becky’s better, and I also agree with her comment about how Anya’s lack of experience will most likely play into when she’s AUFed….

          The point is that it’s not against the rules, and in PR’s history, not one of the helpees has ever admitted that they had help executing their designs.  That and Victor is a whiny little b**ch for even bothering to mention it.  I can see him becoming the next Ivy–and I hated her guts!

              I have a BA in art, and one of the first things you learn in critique is how to keep your mouth shut.  You never admit to happy accidents–you ALWAYS meant for it to turn out that way!

        I think it wasn’t just that Blenley helped with the sewing, but that it was Anthony’s idea to dye the fabric and he showed her how to do it, and someone else (forget who) offered design advice as well. Maybe some of the designers see Anya as a gorgeous and sweet thing and just want to help the poor helpless kitten succeed. Or something.

        IMO she’s playing them all. And the judges seem to LOVE her, so unless she sends assless chaps and pasties down the runway (although even then they might call her “brave” and “forward-thinking”) she’ll be there to the end just on her looks and personal style.

        And please. Nina Garcia would not wear that jumpsuit. Ever.

          I think that jumpsuits are generally a bad idea, anyway and they hardly ever look good.  I still think they’re grading her on a curve, and that sooner or later, she’ll be AUFed because of her inexperience!  And honestly, dyeing the fabric is a no-brainer if your client hates it.   Cecelia should have done that, too–and with her colors being so light and/or neutral, they probably would have taken well to the dye…

      so… can someone explain to me how it works in a challenge like this when you need to make something that fits nina, but you are showing it on a model? does that mean nina is sample sized? what if the model isn’t close in size? or would nina not wear that EXACT piece?

        Kimberly made the garment in Nina’s size after she won.

        Oftentimes in challenges of this nature, the “client” will even ask for modifications to the original design (see Mondo’s bubble dress for Frau Seal).

      JOANNA COLES FOR THE WIN.

      Kerry Washington came close to ruining this judge session.  I just felt this air of desperation to say anything interesting at all.

      If I were a woman, I would totally want Jillian to make me a kickass sweater/skirt combo.

        Even as a man, actually, I may want this.

      Not that anyone is still here (have to DVR & nurse baby to sleep before watching) but… I think Kimberly seems like a feat person and talented designer. I am just concerned that this win will reinforce her love of gold fabric.

      I was pleasantly surprised by the garments this time.

      Maybe I think this every year (except the first) but I haven’t been feeling like anyone is amazing compared to previous seasons.

      I don’t think a little help at the end is “half the garment”.

      I’m surprised “interesting but failed” won over boring.

      Becky used “the fabric” better.

      G’night, all!

        Maybe all you DVR lurkers should comment!  We are probably all here right now!

          I’m a “next day from work” lurker, so I’ve got some catching up to do. Yes, a little help at the end is not “half the garment.” In fact, if you’ve ever seen the show before, you’d know that designers who aren’t insecure asshats help each other.

      I’m still laughing at “drote” (or would it be “droat”?). Joanna Coles, never leave my television screen again.

      I’ve disagreed with the judges on almost every challenge, but this one restored my faith. Nina looked AMAZING in the outfit.

      I gasped when I saw Kimberly’s outfit and I’m glad it won. Nina looked fantastic in it, even better than usual. Good for her. Kimberly earned it.

        I was so doubtful until the runway, but there it was! Well done, Kimberly. And she seems like a really nice person.

      …and if you don’t know what a droat is, an uptight, bitchy fashionista will be along shortly to explain it to you.

        Me too or maybe Daniel V if I get two choices.  One for day and one for night.

      Missed the fun last night, but to answer the question at hand:  I’d want Leanne to design my wedding dress and while she’s at it whip me up one of those cool sculptural dresses, Jay to make me something funky and Jay, Xtian to design my Oscar gown (LOL), and Mondo to put together some  awesome fun casual separates.

      I have to say, when both Bryce’s and Julie’s came down the runway this week I just thought: Oh this season has been too long already, this person should have been gone a long time ago.

        I cannot believe that Bryce managed to escape the bottom 3. All that dress needed was a few extraneous zippers and it would have been Parachute Pants Dress. Oy.

      Mmmm It could be either Laura Bennett or Chloe Dao and I will ask for a day/working outfit =)

      Pretty slim pickings this week.  I would have been struggling to find a top 3, so I think they complimented garments they otherwise might not have.  I liked the idea of Kelly’s top, but I think it was a bit much, especially from the back, with that flap just weirdly stopping.  The neckline of Victor’s was too closed in, not flattering.  I don’t know about Anya’s jumpsuit — too young for someone as serious and kickass as Nina?  Would Nina ever wear something backless to the office?  Would Nina ever wear anything backless?  Would Joanna Coles really fire Nina for wearing something ugly?  When will we start seeing the fabulous?  So many troubling questions….

        Yes, Viktor’s neckline was too closed in! Thanks for articulating what threw it off for me. I think if the neckline had been different/lower and he’d accessorized with Nina-bling jewelry (I’d personally don a fabulous brooch) he could have won it.

      Anyone else in the cultural niche of humming “Lovely Nina, from Argentina–she would not dance!”?

      I liked this competition. I thought it was ironic that of the bottom two,  Cecelia had abandoned her own project to help Julie, in whom she had more faith than in herself. I really enjoyed Julie on this episode and was sad to see her leave. I would be willing to see a few more dog blankets…. but of course they only featured her because she was fated for the axe.

      Who would I like to design an outfit for me? Austin and Santino, of course! Don’t know if I would wear it but what fun to get measured by them.

      Congrats to Kimberly for a well-deserved win. I’m also sorry to see Julie go. True, it would have happened eventually, but people with bad attitudes like Cecelia poison the well. Julie, your work wasn’t to my taste, but you seem sweet and the other designers appeared to enjoy having you around. Best of luck, dear.

      Uli has long been my favorite PR designer. One of her summery, sexy dresses, please.

      I loved Korto’s work and it was so perfect for my own personality and body type. I would love to see what she’s doing now.

      I’m a little late to the party.  Decided to play a drinking game with the word “Nina.”  Passed out after 10 minutes.  Now, having risen from a refreshing blackout, I can read TLo and find out what happened.
