T LOunge

Posted on August 25, 2011

Allons-y, darlings! What better place to watch Project Runway than in Paris, non?

Ladurée Le Bar, Paris

The underlighting won’t be flattering and the seats don’t look all that comfy, but we’ll be fabulous and that’s what matters most.


And we’re going to need that touch of Paris fabulous to get through this one, we fear. It’s another “promote one of Heidi’s side projects” challenges. This time, it’s a return to her line for New Balance and the designers are all asked to create apparel to wear with the new “Heidi Klum for New Balance lifestyle sneaker.”  Last season’s New Balance challenge yielded unfabulous results and a a strange hybrid of cocktail dresses made out of sweatsuit material, so we don’t have high hopes that we’re going to see a lot of chic tonight. But who knows? Maybe this lot will surprise us.

Guest Judge Erin Wasson

Um. Okay…

But wook at Tim in his widdle jeans and sneakers! How cute is that? Both spotless, bien sûr.  Heidi looks like a walking bleach accident.

Last year’s New Balance challenge brought the drama, with Ivy going full-on take-no-prisoners against Michael Costello. The tears and the accusations flew, darlings!

More tears and accusations! What is it about New Balance that makes clothing designers go crazy? Is the material treated with some sort of drug that causes hysteria and paranoia?

We will not be tweeting tonight’s episode, nor will we be joining you in the T LOunge, minions. Instead we’ll be conquering the medium of satellite radio by appearing on The Derek and Romaine Show on Sirius OutQ Channel 108 tonight at 8 PM eastern. You can listen online (with a free trial signup) here and we encourage all precious unborn fawns to call in to the show at 866-305-6887 just to tell us how much you love us. And by “encourage” we mean “order.”

Here’s your Lounge Question of the Week:

Since we’ve been saying all week it’s tough to predict the finalists this season, here’s your chance to prove us wrong. Who will be the Final Five designers?

          Jewelry only for Korto nowadays, I think.  That’s what she had when I checked up on her stuff a few months ago.  It’s unfortunate.

      I love that even in jeans and sneakers, Tim has not forgotten his pocket square.

      But Heidi in leopard and tie dye? I had to point out to my daughter that tie dye is not a neutral.

      Kimberly looks the most natural in her workout clothes, but oh, Danielle.

      Honestly, they still all look the same to me this far into the season. Only standout so far is Anya, and that girl has still got some serious probs. When do we get to see an actual designer POV?

      oh my god I am SO looking forward to tonight.  Pull me up a web and order me, um, something purple and amber?  What is the drink of tonight?  

      Wait, why do the men all get normal-ish athletic/basketball shorts and the women …ugh.  What the hell?  Is the soft voice boring girl wearing a skirt and leggings?  (usually their are two soft voiced boring girls with brown hair and I can never tell them apart, and I am still bitter about the one that won with the petals/wave obsession).

      I have no idea who the final 5 might be. I have no personal favorites so far. But I’m sure the producers are fixin’ for Bertzilla to stay in the game for as long as possible.

      In no particular order I would say Kimberly, Anthony Ryan, Viktor, Anya and Oliver. More than being about talent, these guesses are based on overall consistent performance levels AND the judges impression of each (which I’m already starting to sense Anthony Ryan and/or Kimberly as judge’s pets).

      On another note..is the guest judge Alexa Chung’s evil twin? I haven’t heard of her.

    • Jana Mazor-Thomas

      My theories:

      Kimberly
      Anya

      Becky (full of surprises)

      Blenley (annoying as fuck, but she’s got game) 

      Viktor (producer pick for maximum drama) in the last
      spot.  Like Michael C only even
      assier.

       

      Anthony’s sweet, but a bit derivative and dull.  Clinique struggles with anything that
      pushes him outside his comfort zone (young party girl dresses).  Bryce is never going to live down the
      wee-wee pads.  Bert deals with stress
      by being defensive and assholish, which is the opposite of
      “game”.  Cecilia is going
      to wilt.  Danielle is boring.

      I have a feeling Heidi got all pouty when Nina got her own ep, and whined that it was all supposed to be about HER.

      Tim looks precious.  I want to run up and kiss him, and ask him to take me handbag shopping.  Also, that look on his face!  “This bitch here tells me I HAVE to wear her shitty shoes, then SHE shows up in Louboutins that go with nothing.  She is SO dead.”

      (ps I had to look up this Erin person.  According to HERSELF, she embodies what all us American females want to be.  To ME, she’s a chick who has had pictures in a lot of soft-core spank books.

      Predictions for the final–the first two are a couple of my picks from the very beginning, so I’m sticking with them:
      Clinique Counter, Funky Velma, Colorblind, Pants Girl, and Precious Moments.

      Boys and girls, I am so anxious about this episode.  I don’t like high drama.   I don’t like people being in danger of being thrown out because  of what other people actually did.

      I just love how Tim looks. Wouldn’t any other guy wearing this odd combo get serious negativity thrown at him? What a brave, somewhat Charlie Brown smile on his face…

      Finals, I just don’t know, waay too early with this set. No one with an amazing point of view or vision.
      Guess: Becky, Laura, Kimberly, Anthony, Olievierieriero (cause the judges like him inexplicably).

        Tim knows he would just die if they made him dress in those outfits and run around the track.  :p

        • Anonymous

          But TIm must exercise, right?  He seems fit.  I wonder what he wears when he exercises.  Can you imagine him in jean, sneakers, and a polo?  Running around like a dad at Saturday morning soccer practice?  OMG I’d love to see him in that.  

          I mean, we all think he looks adorab, but black jeans with formal black blazer and pocket square.  Ugly American sneakers?  It is only because he is Tim freakin Gunn he is not getting mocked.  I’ve worked with two different men – two different jobs, 2 different career levels – who did not own a single pair of jeans.   Co-workers always found it bizarre, but in the end you really couldn’t imagine either in jeans.  I love how Tim looks, but methinks he does not rock the jeans on a regular basis.  I could see him in a stylish short sleeve shirt, untucked (perhaps one of those Cuban shirts), and casual pants (maybe linen?), perhaps even a man sandal, on a beach….oooh, getting chills just thinking of it.

            I think the Cuban shirts are called Guyaberas.  I’d LOVE to see Tim in resort wear, though I can only picture him in some nautical-inspired outfit, probably a navy-blue blazer with white slacks.  I’m trying to imagine him in a Hawaiian shirt — it’s just not happening.

            • Anonymous

              A navy blazer and ascot?  WIth a white hat?  Ok, maybe no white hat.  I think you are right on Guyabera.  I spent some time in Florida and I actually really like them – no idea if they are considered stylish or not but I think it’s a nice look, and definitely classier than Hawaiian!

      Hmm, Final Five… I’m gonna go with: Anya, Laura Kathleen, Anthony Ryan, Becky, Kimberly.  I’ve only seen one really noteworthy thing from Olivier and Bert has already melted down.  I also don’t think Victor has done anything all that great.  I’d rather see Joshua because what’s fashion without a bitchy queen around, but I think he’s in for the taste issue auf-ing soon.  Honestly, it’s only the first 3 on my list I really think will be there.  (Anthony Ryan I’m almost sure of — he was in the top 3 for the first 3 challenges, and it was only this week he faltered)

      Sadly, boys, as much as I wanted to hear your show tonight (even enough to sign up for a trial subscription) my kids’ school has announced that TONIGHT is the parent open house deal with the teachers for the start of the new school year.  When did they tell us that, you ask?  THIS AFTERNOON!  Dear God, you KNOW everyone who is attending has children and you give them 4 HOURS notice to line up a sitter… Sorry, still very rant-y.

      What a beautiful bar!  In my favorite city…sigh… I was about to get all misty and then I looked at the photo of Heidi. Nothing says “track meet” and “sports apparel” like five-inch, fake leopard Louboutins.  Bleach accident–parfait!  I’m not up on my models, so I had to Google Erin Wasson, and this is what I found on the Google listing for her Web site: “A classic beauty hailing from the state of Texas, Erin Wasson embodies the modern female ideal.”  OK, so now I totally hate her. Really?  Your Web site–about yourself–says that you embody the modern female idea? Plus, Texas. Nothing more to say.

      Final Five.  At this point, hard to say.  I hope this limb I’m going out on is strong enough to hold me:

      After finding out what the challenge is, I am not even going to watch. This show is becoming more and more absurd – it is continually a homage to Heidi, with Nina thrown in rarely. I am going to read a book. Let me know who wins. Not that I even care – and I loved this show. 

    • Jana Mazor-Thomas

      My predictions disappeared, damn you Disqus.

      Kimberly, Anya, Becky, and Blenley (whatever her real name is) for the definite.  I’m guessing Viktor will stay despite his derivative work, to ramp up the drama among the cast.  If not him, Birdseed Boy, but I think his work is also a bit derivative and boring.

      Clinique will be auf’d for taste issues and one-note design, he can’t handle anything beyond the young party girl dresses.  Bert has no game and way too much attitude.  Braid (Danielle) has tech skills but boring-ass designs.

      Heidi is being rather mean to Cecilia. Reality TV isn’t for everyone. You have to have a certain type of personality to tolerate it. Berating someone who just doesn’t like it is too harsh. I think Tim handled it exactly the right way.

      Hello, T Lo Loungers! Lovely to be spending time at La Duree le bar with all you bitter kittens, unborn fawns and assorted fashion minions. I’m having Veuve Clicquot and perhaps an amuse bouche or two to prepare for Hurricane Irene, which is steaming up the east coast. (The hell with extra D-batteries and bottled water: give me my caviare-stuffed puff pastry and some icy bubbly and I’ll ride out any storm!)

      Speaking of which, if there isn’t SOME stormy activity on the design front tonight, I’ll be disappointed indeed. But team challenges, Heidi’s odd brand-related challenges, and starting the whole thing off by running laps ought to produce a few good moments, eh?

      Meantime, drink up all, and enjoy the show.

      Yet again, the instruction for the New Balance challenge is incredibly vague.  Are the clothes merely supposed to ‘go’ with sneakers?  Are they doing sports wear or clothes meant to be worn while exercising?  At one point Heidi mentioned that they should be clothes that you’re able to wear to the gym, but also said that a dress is fine.  I don’t know about any of you, but a maxi dress getting stuck in the spokes of a stationary bike doesn’t scream appropriate work out gear so much as it does ‘law suit’. 

      In that respect, I don’t think any of them completed the challenge.  Anthony Ryan was possibly the closest to getting it right.  That leaves the designers in limbo, making them all feel like they have to fit a specific box while not even knowing what the box is.  What are they to do but design lame clothes that can passably fit in multiple categories.  I long for the days when the challenges were specific: couture, gown for the red carpet for X, make whatever the F you want out of car parts, etc.

      I thought Anthony Ryan was going to talk himself home. He made a huge error smack talking Berts look, before he knew what the judges thought, he had steped back and taken a breath he could have clearly seen that (although not appro. of the challenge) it was the best look of the three.
      Danielle did not have the worst look, but they were tired of her. She wasn’t going to make it to the end anyway.

      Hated that Josh won.  He was an asshole.  And to think they praised his behavior!   Anya produced the same freaking dress she always makes, and the two of them basically told poor Becky to shut the f**k up and sew.

      Glad Joshua is back, but to me it looks like next week will be a reprise of his last episode.  If this is really a “Halloween costume for kids” challenge, it should be easy for him–make something his nieces and nephews would want to wear!

    • BuffaloBarbara

      When Viktor stops hissing, he’s not too bad, and the dress was cute.  Still digging low-key Olivier and Anya, and Kimberly’s starting to grow on me now that she’s had more screen time in which to continue to be low-key and pleasant.

      Josh M winning–especially when it was precisely FOR his horrendous and vaguely misogynistic treatment of Becky–was really obnoxious.  I liked him in the pet store challenge, but if these are his true colors?  He can do as Bert advised and drop dead.  (And I can’t believe that in any unpleasant exchange involving Bert, I was on Bert’s side.  That sewing machine thing was idiotic.)

      I have an unpleasant sense of producer manipulation with aufing Danielle–not that she didn’t deserve to be in the bottom for sending down another bad green chiffon shirt, but it was far ahead of what A.R. did; he failed as both a designer and a team leader, and I was on Heidi’s side.  However, I can see them saying, “Oh, he gets into fights and talks about his cancer and has a southern accent, while she’s just a polite girl who makes blah clothes and is pretty much courteous to everyone.  Okay, so she has great hair, but great hair doesn’t make for drama!  And heck, even that gorgeous hair boring…”

      The maxi dresses with sneakers… obviously, they don’t object to them on principle, but wearing a knit with rubber-soled shoes–would you spending all day cursing because you were in the wrong position and your skirt started clinging to your shoe?  That’s all I could think about!  Or maybe that’s just me.

          Well,  Victor’s dress already had a shortish full skirt. But had Olivier made a long tube skirt, that may have been a little more pleasing to the judges. Heidi warned him, and really it was so simple that he couldn’t have invested much time in it. Olivier doesn’t course correct .

      Okay, so Anya’s dress was a disaster. It looked like they never tucked the razor back into the dress to sew it down, and the stripe down the front was loosely attached, possibly by glue. Also, as someone who wears a lot of long skirts and maxi dresses, you don’t want a jersey hanging down near a rubber sole. You will severely injure yourself the first time you sit down and forget to untangle before standing.
      Josh M was a total bitch, in the way that only insecure people can be. He must have destroyed people in high school. It was really awfu l to watch, and I totally think he only got to Becky because she’s so tired. Anya surprised me with how little she was willing to take a side and just wanted to appease everyone. I thought she was cooler than that.

          cos i can, i work nights & they have this episode up. she’s much nicer to becky than the man in the makeup. he is the villain. worse than viktor, way worse than viktor. they all hate bert cos he’s old & doesnt suffer fools &, tired as i am, i am certain they all look like foolish kids to him. but josh is superficial &, most of all, mean. i wont start. but i apologize for being irritated by anya {from last week} & speaking to soon this week.

            She *is* irritating. But I thought she was minimally the kind of person who could look at someone and say “Yeah, he just attacked you, and that was wrong”.

              Agreed – and she isn’t.  Anya’s a total snake.  I really hope she doesn’t make it to the finals – not only is her look very, very one-note, she cuts corners and seems…incredibly instrumentalist in a way that I always instinctively dislike.  

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

      Okay, so Anya’s dress was a disaster. It looked like they never tucked the razor back into the dress to sew it down, and the stripe down the front was loosely attached, possibly by glue. Also, as someone who wears a lot of long skirts and maxi dresses, you don’t want a jersey hanging down near a rubber sole. You will severely injure yourself the first time you sit down and forget to untangle before standing.
      Josh M was a total bitch, in the way that only insecure people can be. He must have destroyed people in high school. It was really awfu l to watch, and I totally think he only got to Becky because she’s so tired. Anya surprised me with how little she was willing to take a side and just wanted to appease everyone. I thought she was cooler than that.
      Anthony should have gone home. That was ridiculous. And I love how they only talked about the shorts. Like that XXXL shirt was fine…

      You know, every week I become more and more convinced that I should go on this show — I have come up with cooler stuff every challenge than at least half of these people, probably because I watch a lot of PR.  Now executing it… that could be a problem.  (And how cool would it be to have a contestant who doesn’t know how to make sample sizes?  I’ve only made clothes for people I actually know, and shockingly enough I don’t know any 6 feet tall, 00 size women.  I do have a couple size 0, but they’re both under 5’2″)

        That’s the issue I think a lot of these designers face–they dumb down their designs to fit the time constraints.  For example, Anthony Ryan last week had sketched three separate pieces, but only had time to do two.

            That’d be fine with me except on the team challenge(s) actually.  I have no problem coming up with things on the fly.  The problem is that I CANNOT DRAW — it’d be murder to try and get my ideas across to someone else who wants to see sketches:( 

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

          In my case, it’s more because I don’t sew that much.  I guess I could practice, but I’m afraid of not having the same knowledge of fabric that others do — I know how some fabrics will behave, but not as wide of a variety as I’d need.

        Disappointing episode though, in spite of the great challenge. The judging was basically “we have to get rid of the tacky elephant in the room (Matcho)” and the results were mostly bleh.

        I agree it was a brilliant challenge though, and I’d also love to see that in PR as a halfway point challenge with a different twist – take the losing designs from the other designers and do the same thing.

      Absolutely no chance that I can see of Final 5:  Bert, Bryce, Josh C, Becky

      I confess I do like drama (last season’s Lord of the Flies runway meltdown was epic imho) but this episode had a black cloud hanging over it. Cecillia quitting (but not in time to save Dogblankets), and Olliver falling down in a ridiculous foot race were merely the beginning. The Clinique vs.Becky, Clinique vs. Bert and Blenly-Anthony vs. Bert match ups were  disheartening and depressing in their mean spiritedness. Clinique’s win just underscored everything wrong about this episode. His design was fug and Anya’s  maxi dress wasn’t all that. Bryce’s cute little dress should have been a co-winner if one was needed. Congrats to Hissing Victor because he deserved to win and he wasn’t an ass.  Anthony Ryan’s horrible romper was clearly the worst but I have no problem with Danielle going because she just wasn’t going to do anything interesting.  

    • Anonymous

      I knew whoever was Bert’s team leader would be in the bottom two. The man is a nightmare.  Working with him would throw anyone off their game, unless they were as vicious and passive-aggressive as he is. Of course, Anthony’s outfit, especially the shorts, if those were really shorts and not just a defecation stapled to the model, were bad, but even that is Bert’s fault, I’d say. 

      My final five prediction: Kimberly, Viktor, Bert (for the Gretchen factor), Laura (Blenley) and whomever between Becky and Anthony Ryan doesn’t have to work with Bert again. Josh has no taste and Olivier is way out of his league here. 

      And tonight proved for me that sometimes the Duchess and Nina are right to overpower Heidi.  I mean, that top by Danielle was horrible, Who was it that once got eliminated (or should have) for the same ugly, apparently two-layer top, but without the color? Too lazy to search for it. Sister Wive’s back was better though.

      I haven’t seen PR9e5 yet, (I’ll watch it at 1 a.m., now that I’m home for work,) so my top five picks might be off, but …

      I was pulling for Bert and Olivier at the start, but they have in my opinion failed to deliver … so .. at this juncture ..

      Anthony Ryan (Rocking One, Uniballer, Color Blind)
      Anya (Miss T&T, Annabella Lwin from Bow Wow Wow)
      Becky (love that Funky Velma nickname)
      Kimberly (sorry, no nickname, but like that she is self-taught, but not whining about it)
      and
      Laura Kathleen (privileged)

      I predict Anthony Ryan and Kimberly for a top two.

      I do like Joshua M. (Clinique Counter, George Michael,) he’d be my #6.

      I don’t care if they maybe don’t seem as talented or special as I was thinking of the designers from, say, season three … I’m a PR fan, and I am so excited to see the HKNB challenge.  Yeah, if I am excited for THAT, I must be delusional, I mean, an earnest and dedicated fan.

      I will be crushed if Anya turns out to be the one with an overzealous agent.

        God, yes.

        I was horrified that they gave him a co-win. Why? It wasn’t because they loved his outfit, since they’re producing Anya’s instead of his. So was it for his “leadership skills,” which consisted of berating Becky til she cried, and then berating her for that? From the edit, it didn’t even look like she was being a pain in the ass (unlike another “older” contestant in the room). She was just “old,” therefore “dowdy,” therefore relegated, quite deliberately, to sewing slave.

        What a bully.

      Admittedly, AR has been producing good clothes in the competition so far, while Danielle has been going the safe route since Day 1. When Nina brought that up—asking Heidi if Danielle has ever produced a memorable look—I knew that he would stay. Was it a good decision? I personally think so. Even in past seasons, the judges have given a Get Out of Jail Free card to a designer who has been consistently good and had one crappy day, as the case with AR this episode.

      Bert just gets consistently f***ing annoying every week. Stop acting so entitled you jerk. (Well, I should say the same with Clinique Counter….)

      I honestly can’t remember a time on Project Runway when I’ve been so dispirited and unsettled by the contestants — not even Jeffrey’s hideous behavior, or Gretchen’s attempts to foment drama. Remember how a few weeks ago we were all Team Bert? Now we can’t stand the sour old prick. But I can’t tell who’s a worse human being — him or Clinique Counter. What a… geez, I don’t even know the word for that loser. The way he and Anya treated Becky made me hope she wins the whole thing just so she can say “suck it” to them in the end. The way they treated her was indefensible, and I loved Tim calling them on it right away. 

      I wasn’t too sorry to see Cecilia go. All that violent shit-talk at the beginning (I was actually afraid she might hurt someone) seemed like a big cover up for self esteem issues. Hopefully she’ll do OK; I fear for a lot of the people still on the show.

        I think Bert was on the money when he called Josh a self-centered prick. Bert’s a pain in the ass. He’s combative and stubborn, and I imagine he really is hard to work with. But Josh’s behavior towards Becky was just beyond, as they say.

        Everyone’s opinion of Bert is based on his actions so far. So, while I didn’t like Anthony and Laura excluding him right of the bat, I can see how it would happen. Josh’s opinion of Becky was based on… what? Age? Weight? Her glasses? He can blame it on her designs and call her work dowdy all he wants (because it wasn’t an insult. WTF?). I think his shallow ass just decided she wasn’t the right kind of cool to justify being in his magnificent presence. And Anya didn’t help the situation. She went with Josh because he was the team leader and because he has much stronger personality. She realized how cruel they were being only when Becky broke down. At least she tried to comfort Becky, but too little, too late in my opinion.

        All that to say that Josh is a worse human being than Bert. In my opinion, of course.

    • Miss Andrea Chapman

      Am I the only one who thought that Anthony Ryan & Blenley were pretty bitchy to Bert as well? They boxed him out from the beginning in the same manner that Josh M & Anya did to Becky. He didn’t get a call in the fabric department and he was the only one who stuck to his guns and carried a design through to the end. I think that AR & B went into the challenge predisposed to dislike anything that Bert did and admittedly he reacted in the exact wrong way, but in the end when the two of them were acting like they had just been through something terrible by the hands of Bert? Sorry honeys ya’ll designed and sewed some fugly shit and it had nothing to do with Bert.

        True.  I don’t think Bert was all that bad either.  Anthony R. and Blenley came into it planning on excluding Bert.  They didn’t want him there – so they tuned him out.  He tried to participate – tried to interject his opinion….but they sloughed him off.  In the end, he did what he could with what materials were at hand.  Was he pissy as all hell?  Yup.  That’s part of his personality, I think.  Doesn’t bother me as much as some of the other contestants personal quirks.  And I LOVED his set-down of Miss Clinique Counter.  That was something way past due, imo.  Bert just doesn’t seem to give a damn what people think.  Now if only his design capability stepped up a few notches.  I think he’s holding back – saving it for later in the show.  Bad strategy.  It could get him kicked off.  I’d really like to see him bring it every time.  He’s certainly capable (I looked over some of his early design work and it’s great).  Maybe he just doesn’t want to be there.  I think we’ll know in the next couple of challenges.

          I’m another who doesn’t hate Bert.  He gloated a bit too openly on the runway, but the other two shut him out from the get-go.  I tend to think Bert, as the oldest, is always the tiredest of them all and he’s crotchety as a result.  Don’t know why someone doesn’t do the obvious and say something flattering to him.  If nothing else, the man knows how to cut a flattering dress.

          Also, thought, by the way, that it’s way too early in the run to give out a save based on past performance.

            It’s possible that I myself am crotchety and tired… *g*  But if I was stood before judges with two peers who’d launched into a blatant critique of my work ethic, design and results…  and at its conclusion, the judges harshed their efforts? I’d laugh, too. At least a snicker. At least a small smile.

           In the end, he did what he could with what materials were at hand.

          By that point, I’d expected him to have located his own materials in Mood in sheer defiance of the ‘midwestern aesthetic’ and divorced himself from their plans completely.  Perhaps he wasn’t given any choice in the matter, but if he actually chose to the same fabrics then kudos to him for being the knee that far and making the best of a bad thing.

        Thank you!  I felt that they were excluding him from the get go.  I think most of the people in this season are ageist.  They’re disrespectful to Bert and even to Becky!  Anthony Ryan and Laura didn’t consider anything Bert had to offer.  And they were so intent on trashing his work, they didn’t pay attention to their own.  I thought it was hilarious that Bert laughed on the runway.  He was totally vindicated after they had tried to marginalize him the whole time.  They even openly planned to throw him under the bus if they were in the bottom.  They were bullies, plain and simple.  He is a curmudgeon, but that’s just his personality.  He doesn’t go out of his way to hurt or cut people down like a lot of them do.  And Josh tried to intimidate Bert and bully him about the sewing machine, as well.  Good on Bert for not backing down!

          I kind-of agree with the first part.  It makes me wonder what goes on that we don’t see.  It doesn’t seem like Bert is getting along with anybody (possibly excepting Bryce who had something nice to say about him in the first episode).  I do think, though, that Bert’s remark “drop dead” was uncalled for.  I would NEVER defend Clinique who was pretty much of an ass through the whole episode.  Just sayin’ that Bert seems like someone I would not want to spend time around.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, the “drop dead” was pretty harsh.  That’s not something I’d ever say.  I’m not saying I’d like to hang out with Bert, either.  LOL!  I just can empathize with how he may be feeling disrespected and marginalized.  He’s definitely not handling it all with the most grace.  And he probably is an old fart.  But I’m seeing that “mob mentality” against him like they did to Michael C. last year, and I just can’t stand that.  When you’re the target of that, it’s pretty much a no-win.  Last year, people trashed Michael C. for being a crybaby about it, and this year, people are trashing Bert for being bitchy and grouchy about it.  Hmmm…so what’s the perfect way to respond and act when people freeze you out of the group and dirt you?  And how many of us would respond in that perfect manner?

              I am sure it would take a superhuman to respond graciously to being marginalized.  I do think, if people recognize that they have been unfair and apologize, that really makes me cheer for them.  I always want the nice guy to have that extra advantage (Mondo)  I don’t think Bert’s look last night was all that, it was just the best look of the three.  I haven’t really liked anything he’s done, not even the winning boxer dress.  And I do not feel sorry for Bert because he isn’t nice either.

              Lilithcat, I assumed that Josh wanted to use the machine Bert was on because it had had his thread on it.  Whatever, I thought the whole confrontation was graceless on both their parts.

        I liked Bert so much in the first episode, but his attitude and designs have both failed to impress since then. But I thought he was treated horribly last night. And then they tried to blame him when they completely shut him out? Boggle.

        Well, they shut him out only after he went into bitch-mode.  Then they figured they might as well just pack it up and go on.

        What is with all the Bert love?  I really liked him in the first episode but his attitude after that has just destroyed anything positive about him.  Is it because he’s older?  Everybody is complaining about ‘ageism’, but I don’t think that’s the case.  After all, Bert is great at acting like a seven year old.

          I think that some people understand why Bert is the way he is. No one here (that I can think of) is cutting him a 100% break. We all realize he’s been a difficult pain in the ass. We just don’t think he’s a monster. He has a side of the story too.

          I think some of his issues are due to all those years of heavy drinking. Large amounts of alcohol over a long period of time kills off brain cells, and destroys your memory. That could be the real reason he can’t remember anyone’s name, and why it looks like he lies during judging. I’m not making excuses. That’s a real thing. (Hell, my memory is shot just from four years of taking painkillers.) And I would not be surprised to discover he’s a dry drunk.

          I wonder if any of the other designers showed interest in Bert, or wanted to know about his experience with Halston and whoever else he worked for (the other names have slipped my mind). It seems to me that any young designer would jump at the chance to pick his brain. Of course we’ll never know if they made any overtures, because Bunim-Murray makes shows that thrive on conflict and venality.

          Given a choice to have lunch with Bert or Joshua M., I’d take Bert every time. In fact, I’d take Bert over just about every one of this season’s designers, even the ones I really like – Kimberly and Anthony. It would a hard decision if I had to make a choice between Bert and Becky, because I love her.

          So, I can’t speak for anyone else here, but that’s what’s with my Bert love.

      Didn’t think I could dislike anyone on PR more than I dislike(d) Angry Peanut, but Clinique Counter hit a new low on this ep. I’m watching PR again at 1 am, and he’s an even bigger dick than I first thought. Thanks for validating his ass-tastic behavior, judges!

      It bugged me when she said that. If the show was week-to-week than no designer would ever get criticized for returning to the same design tricks week after week – Rami and his drapey goddess dresses, Uli and her gorgeous prints, April and her all-black babydoll dresses, et al.
      I know Top Chef operates on the week-to-week premise, which works for that show. But it doesn’t work for Project Runway, so I don’t know why Heidi would be so married to that idea.

      Although Josh has his annoying moments, I have to say I’m on his side for the most part. He was inappropriate with Becky, but he apologized and really what more can you ask for. He knew he was a jerk and he wanted to put it behind them and keep moving, rather than dwelling on it. Ya he’s a loud queeny gay, but I don’t think he’s any louder or more confrontational than some of the contestants. Ya he’s got opinions, but is it really bad to have a poor opinion of someone else? He just needs to put the gosh-darn bedazzler down!!! I think he can back up his confidence because he’s definitely shown some talent, but he’s obviously still growing.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        The problem with the apology–and it may well have been manufactured by the people doing the interview segments and was definitely exacerbated by the editing–was that he basically said, “I said I was sorry so she’d get back to work.”

        It’s not bad to have a poor opinion of someone else, but it is bad to be a team leader and shut out a member of your team that you picked.  She’s not a seamstress, and to treat her dismissively is disrespectful behavior, and disrespectful behavior?  Yeah, that’s a bad thing.  If he didn’t want her design suggestions, he should have picked a second person whose aesthetic he liked.  Shutting down someone’s design voice in a design competition is low.

            Trying to convince her that he meant dowdy in some sort of good way was actually, to me, more insulting than calling her clothes dowdy in the first place.

              remember, oh remember, that he featured himself & his understuffed underpants very prominently in his portfolio. nothing else in that portfolio was memorable &, of course, he picked his partner in this challenge based largely & obviously on sharing his very own camera time w/ the only person he thought worthy of his presence, the actual beauty queen. who behaved better than he did. &, of course, nobody–nobody–behaved worse.

              And then he called her work dowdy AGAIN on the runway – TWICE.  You know that’s going to rattle around the judges’ brains and be a mark against her for future challenges.

              His tone of voice when he told her “You can sew this” in the workroom quite early in the episode.  He was an asshole from start to finish (when he forgot her name).

          i havent watched this yet–lifetime has the outfits up, virtually all of them simply bad–but not the episode. but, considering that from their portfolios & work to this date on the show her aesthetic is miles better than his, i dont get what he was complaining about.

          I can’t believe they gave him a win. If that’s leadership count me out. I guess people with whips can get things done too, but I wouldn’t reward them for it. He should have picked someone else. If I were her, I would have refused to “get back to work” after that lame insincere apology. I’m glad she at least called him out a little bit on the runway.

          What’s funniest to me is he seems to think he’s all that because he’s on Project Runway – but so is Becky! Maybe, just maybe, he should think about how/why she’s there.

      • Anonymous

        What more can I ask for?  Not being a giant douchey bitch in the first place. His treatment of Becky as his teammate was indefensible, but he trashed her unmercifully because, like a little fifth grader, he wanted to be on a team with his bestest-ever-bestest-friend Anya, and that’s what you do to the third person in the group: you trash them.

        He showed himself to be a total dick last night.

      No question that Josh was an ass this week. If his motivation for picking Becky really was because she’s a wizard on the sewing machines, he should have told her that up front and asked if she was willing to take that role. Clearly, though, she wanted a bigger part than that. He earned some respect back when he apologized, and I think his ability to course-correct (which we’ve seen before) saved the team from an auf. He was able to resolve the conflict in his group and move on. Josh, dude, I don’t hate you—at least, not yet—but you really need to put down the Bedazzler.

      Bert, on the other hand, is irredeemable. Yes, you’re at least a generation removed from the rest of the competition. You may not “click” with them or make any personal connections. But you must learn to behave professionally and work with people you don’t like. Bert does not compromise, Bert does not adapt. Bert decides what he wants to make and makes that, regardless of what his peers (though he clearly doesn’t regard them as such) have to say about. And unlike Josh, this wasn’t just Bert having a bad day. He’s demonstrated this stubbornness and sense of superiority for a few episodes now. And then, to top it all off, he stood on that runway, made snide comments under his breath, and celebrated while his teammates—not just fellow competitors, but teammates—were being criticized by the judges. That’s not only unprofessional, it’s just plain rude. Sorry, Bert, but you can just head on back to Sesame Street. There’s a green fellow there that I’m sure you’d get along famously with.

      Oh, no, what happened to my comment? That was the most I’d typed on this site since, well, ever! Curse you, disqus!

      Don’t have time to retype the whole thing, so here’s the condensed version: Josh was an ass tonight, earned back respect by resolving the conflict in his team and course-correcting. I don’t hate him (at least not yet), but he needs to put down the Bedazzler. Can’t see myself ever liking Bert. He needs to act like a professional and learn to work with people he may not like. Celebrating on the runway while his teammates—not just fellow competitors, but teammates—were getting criticized was just plain rude. Bert, go back to Sesame Street. There’s a green fellow there you’d get along famously with.

      Reluctantly agree with the auf. Danielle seems like a nice girl, but her designs are variations on a theme and silk chiffon doesn’t belong in every garment. Worse outfits on the runway tonight, yes, but Danielle has shown little in the way of potential.

      Ok, I REALLY don’t get all the Berthate. What’s up with that? Frankly, what his teammate, Blenley and whateverhisnameis made was garbage. At least Bert made something wearable, and THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS AT THE END OF THE DAY. Oh and Clinique Counter? Bitch is bitchy and a SeeYouNextTuesday all day long, but girl can design. So HAAYYY. anyway…end of rant. PS I do like Becky, we’d be friends for sure but she betta step that shit up.

      I thought the challenge would be the designers racing on stilts while wearing doggie wee wee pads.  I think it may be Heidi’s input with all these silly contests.  Racing around a track to see who would be leaders, how silly.  

      • Anonymous

        It was a ridiculous and patently unfair way to pick the team leaders.  As much as I hate that tacky, tacky velvet bag with the big gold stripper tassel drawstring, it is the fairest way to choose team leaders.  This was almost set up to have the younger guys be the team leaders, Becky and Bert never stood a chance.

        • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

          it was the nastiest way to pick a leader i have ever seen them do.
          it was like forcing them back not to college, not even to high school, but to about 7th grade.
          i cant even imagine how could they not have understood that this would create both unworthy conceit & unnecessary conflict over nothing of value or import.
          i thought the stiltwalkers was the worst episode i’d ever seen, or maybe bits & pieces of last season’s gretchen, may i touch yr hair? but some of the particulars of this one beat those hands & feet dead down.

            It reminds me of the time they made the designers run across the park to get to their fabric and there was poor Chris March gamely running to the finish line.  They do it because they think it’s funny. It’s just stupid and pathetic.

          I totally agree.  I also think it was unfair to all the females.  In general, the average man is going to beat the average woman in a running race.  This was set up to favor the young males.

      I noticed that the designers were in fact working with the “walking beach disaster” fabric but then it was replaced with a dark shiny denim for the final runway productions.  What was that about?
      I loved seeing Heidi running in high heels though I felt she was whispering to Bert, “You really need to talk to your personal trainer.” How did they not suppose that there was potential for accidents? Do the designers pass a physical to qualify?

        My thoughts exactly. There’s not a single designer who’s shown the kind of talent and vision that we’ve seen in previous seasons.  And there’s way too much kindergarten behavior and bitchery.

      Erin Wasson scared me every time they put her on the screen.  Very creepy look about her.

      And if I were that size, there would be NO elastic waist pants in my closet…  maybe she was PMSing… that would explain a lot.

      Except the split ends.

        If she was PMSing and feeling bloated, and the only thing that felt comfortable was elastic-waist pants (which every woman here would understand), why did she tuck her shirt in?!!?! More important, why does Michael Kors make elastic-waist pants? Those are Kors pants, aren’t they?

        So many questions.

        PS: There is no excuse for that hair. I’ve defended Sarah Jessica Parker’s hair, but Erin Wasson’s hair is several splits end too far.

          I thought I was seeing things when I saw those elastic waist pants!  Walmart specials. 

          I so wanted to grab some barber scissors and clip the ends of her hair.  The clumped ends looked like when a
          kid has been sucking her hair and it clumps up.    Well, I am not saying she didn’t suck her hair…….who knows.

      I’d rather see less drama and more design/talent. Why not give them a second day instead of keep them up all night, so they can get more sleep depped and have crappier judgment? It seems like from previous comments anyway that viewers are happier with an episode when the runway isn’t asstastic. 

      I also don’t get why you’d give CC a co-win over a dress he didn’t design or sew.

      Wow.  Josh really seems like one wretched person.  All that Clinique can’t hide the ugly he has going on inside.  I know that there’s editing involved, and they’re trying to cultivate “characters”, but that was just beyond bad.  He should really be ashamed of himself.   And as for Bert, yes he’s disagreeable and his behavior wasn’t really dignified last night, but you know what?   I’m kind of thinking that these fools deserve it and he’s just giving back what he’s getting.

      i’m so unbearably sick of all these fuckers…  i don’t like any of them as people and NONE of their clothes/aesthetics are fashionable, interesting, or something i’d wear.  as brookeinmn says, “tedious” is absolutely the right word.  i know that anya, clinique, and olivier will be amongst the top 5, but they absolutely don’t deserve to be there.  anya will mostly be there b/c of her storyline — going from not being able to sew to bryant park is a good story, especially b/c america loves for the skinny, pretty girl to win, whether she deserves it or not.  i mean, being the best of the worst does not constitute one as “america’s next designer”.

      and clinique got pissed at becky b/c HIS dress was one that heidi hated.  he couldn’t imagine that his design was worth critiquing/criticizing and so he had to project that onto someone else.  i actually disliked him far more than bert this episode, and that’s saying a lot.  i don’t think i’ll be watching anymore this season — bunim-murray have completely obliterated what was once a really good & innovative show.

      And of course, they were all busting their butts in the race so they wouldn’t have to have Bert, and then Anthony got stuck with him after all because of not having another person.  I thought he should have gotten the choice of either having Bert or bringing someone back, so he could give Bert on down the line.  Viktor definitely got the advantage there.

      We talk about not seeing a lot of talent, but part of that has to do with stupid inappropriate challenges.  They really haven’t had a lot of chance to design real clothes, except for Nina’s challenge.  Designing clothes to wear with sneakers (that isn’t sportswear but must use denim/suede), clothing stiltwalkers, and using pet store products is not high fashion.
