Calgon, take us away!

Yapi Kredi World Lounge, Istanbul, Turkey

Yes, darlings, we’re heading to Istanbul, not Constantinople tonight to drink something exotic and pass out on something pink while yelling at the judges for something stupid.

Tim is concerned. Please note the height of the dress form in the background. Budding Nancy Drews will recognize this as a vital clue as to the nature of this week’s challenge.

Gird your loins, because we’re all going to have to suffer through a bout of Kardashian tonight. We’ll hold hands during this part to get through it.

Upskirt shots finally make their way to the judges’ panel; something even Heidi wasn’t able to manage in all these years.

“The HAIR is CaRAZY!!!!!”

God bless that Duchess. First team challenge of the season, you guys. This is when you separate the bitches from the victims and the claws and tears make their first real appearance. In other words, drama is on the menu. Drama, with a side order of attention-seeking. We are so there. Hopefully we’ll get some good dresses out of it. We covered the shooting of the runway show for this episode here. You’re not going to see anything in that link that you don’t see in the preview.

Which leads to our Question of the Lounge: What do you think of this season so far? Of course it’s far too early to make predictions as to the outcome, but is it better or worse than you thought it was going to be? And come on now; admit it: how many of you are watching when you swore you’d never watch again?

      TLounge! I know myself too well to have sworn I’d never watch again (although I was as appalled as the next bitter kitten). This season seems pretty good so far. Not stellar, but not terrible. We shall see. Oh, and do they have mojitos in Turkey?

      • Karn Mazzei

        They DO have mojitos in Turkey, not as a traditional drink, but what the fashionable, look-to-Europe-and-the-US types drink.  I have had some excellent cocktails in Turkey, but you do pay for it.

        Now for something more traditional, you can knock back rakı  (like a delicious, not sweet sambuca or ouzo) with savory small plates, but not in a fancy place like the Yapı Kredi World Lounge.  You would have to travel a couple of miles down the road to some small place on the Bosphorus.

          Oh, man, that raki shit will fuck you UP. I was in Turkey after three months in Syria and I thought I was prepared after drinking lots and lots of arak (which is basically exactly the same thing). But I think they use more water with arak, or something. I’m not really clear on what happened, if you couldn’t guess.

        • hans anggraito

          raki WILL fuck you up… a friend of mine smuggled it to the u.s from bosnia and it is moonshine… this one was made from plum and it was very very distilled, it’s comparable to everclear. i’m sure there are types of raki based on the region, so perhaps ther are more forgiving ones.

      You got me, I’m watching even though I swore off last year. I was so disgusted by Gretchen that I didn’t even watch the finale.

        Did you notice she has yet to be mentioned this season?

          They may not have mentioned her, but final collection is shown during the “THIS is Project Runway!” bit at the beginning of each episode.

             I caught the brief flash of Gretchen in the opening too – I really think its because they have no choice..they can’t use any Bravo footage, and they need to show something from the earlier shows…. and (sighstupidTalbotstockroombacklogwasNinahigh?!?) she did win. As long as she doesn’t show up to judge anything, I’m good, lol.

        I was bummed by Gretchen’s win, too.  And to make matters worse, I got a catalogue recently that was all Gretchenesque – the flowy dresses, hats, even the sunglasses and all I could think was Nina saying that Gretchen was so “on trend” and “of the moment.”  Maybe I’m imagining it, but can someone else tell me if they see it too?  Blech.

      The news this week has been so depressing that I need this. I NEED THIS. Even with a Kardashian.

      Remember how they found those pattern books under Keith’s bed in S3? Do you think this will be the episode where they find a seamstress under Anya’s bed?

      • aimee_parrott

        That seamstress comment made me laugh so hard I am now obligated to buy you a drink.

      I admit it.  I’m watching when I swore not to.  I was so angry at the end of last season… But I wanted to fully enjoy my TLo fixes and I really do enjoy seeing what the designers do in the workroom.

      Well…. I never said I wouldn’t watch, and I am watching. I can’t tell what I think of this season yet; it’s too soon. I don’t find myself caring as much as I used to, but I think that’s because after so many seasons (I’ve been watching since season 1), the bloom is off the rose.

        I so agree.  Come sit by me, BB, and we’ll commisrate about the olden days of PR when the judging made sense and the fashions were fabulous.  I’ll get your first round.

    • Anonymous

      I’m enjoying it more than I expected so far, possibly because of the first two challenges.  The pajama one was interesting, and I always like the unconventional materials.  The way they showed more of the casting and so forth also helps me to remember who’s who, so everything seems like less of a mish-mosh.

      Its definately better than Gretchen season. But still some shenanigans going on. They are definitely more interested in Camera-friendly designers (Hello Anya) than good design.

      Because without the upskirt, none of the Kardashians would have a career. But I’ll watch tonight, DESPITE there being a Kardashian in the house.

        Were could they find someone more tawdry as a judge? (I assume Paris Hilton was unavailable or overpriced.)

        • Anonymous

          Ohh, when i saw this was the episode when the kardashian appears, I almost made other plans. Ugh. Still not quite sure about this season and unhappy from last. While I never said “I’ll never watch again” (know myself better than that), I do think the lifetime PR is still heavily on probation in my book. Perhaps there is a bit of wit in putting her as judge for a circus type judging event?

          Wouldn’t put lifetime past paris Hilton either, don’t know as “too tawdry” exists in their books.

          Paris has been more discreet with her wahini lately, so they probably didn’t want her.

      I never swore I’d never watch it again.  I knew I would.  And, frankly, unlike a lot of people around here, I was less incensed by last season’s outcome than I had been by those of a couple of earlier seasons. 

      I’m enjoying the season so far.  No “make a pretty dress” challenges yet; I hope that continues.

      There were white peaches at the farmers market this morning, so it’ll be Bellinis at my place tonight!

        I totally agree – I wasn’t thrilled with Gretchen’s win, but it wasn’t the worst thing I’d seen on Project Runway.  That would be Chloe Dao winning.  I like her and I like her clothes, but she shouldn’t have won.  Of all of the talented people in her season…DANIEL V… I just can’t believe it was her.  I’m still not over it.

      So–better keep that Stoli chilled in case the judging is as…confusing as it was even last week with the sherpa shirt winning.   I may need a large, stiff shot to get me through (and of course, TLo’s hand-holding…)

      Yay for Istanbul. Maybe I’ll wear harem pants or veil. I right now I’m trying to decide between gin or whisky, like Tom Collins or Whisky Sour.
      So far I love this season, I’ve loved them all. The secret is to never expect the judges to be consistant or fair. And keep in mind the extremely limited time that the designers have to produce their entry. Keep in mind that the show is highly edited. And drink a lot while watching. There you have it.

      I think that the editing of the Judges has been more consistent this time around, and you can actually hear criticisms of the clothes both good and bad, and not so much praising/insulting the dress without an explanation as to why. I am enjoying it a lot.

      Haven’t been to Istanbul in 12 years. Hope the security/customs control at the airport DON’T remember me. Following the lines on the carpet from the bar to the ladies room may be problematic after a couple (or 5) glasses of raki and water.

      So far, so good in the season. Then again I skipped last season, so I can’t really compare. On par with Season 5, but not quite Season 3 or 4. YET. We’ll see what drama these kids (and Bert) can bring.

      Thanks TLo, for all of the delicious bitchery you bring into my life. I wish I could sling it like you guys.

      This kitten’s still a little bitter, but that’s my nature.  I never swore to swear off PR, so I’m not going back on my word to say that I still look forward to Thursday night.  No recent season or batch of sewtestants has hit the peak of the older years–Santino, Austin, ALP, Sissybear, Laura, but most years–even last year–has its highlights (Mondo!).  Still a fan.  Oh, and I’ll have champagne until it runs out.

      I never swore off watching PR. I’m a fan for life. For good or for bad. As long as Tim and Heidi keep showing up, I’m all in. For me, it’s a bit too early to give an overall opinion of PR, but so far I’m liking it. I don’t really think that an hour and a half is all that necessary, but I’m still watching. I’d like a tighter more focused hour long format. The only thing that has disappointed me this season was the Road to the Runway episode. Ninety-percent of the show could’ve been easily seen on Lifetime’s website. While I enjoyed seeing Seth Aaron, Laura, Uncle Nick, et al, I really would’ve enjoyed seeing more designer applicants to the show as well as some juicy behind-the-scenes footage. Oh, and my only other observation is that they’ve got a less than scintillating crop of models for the season.

      Champagne, please. I never say never, so I’m watching (although it will be online, tomorrow). For some reason, the designers seem really YOUNG to me this season. I don’t know if that’s actually the case, but even the ones in their 30s seem young.

      I always knew I’d watch again. This is my show. I can’t seem to follow all of the wannabe shows, like the ones on Bravo, but this one is always good for me. I’ve also learned over the years to not become too emotionally involved with the show. I used to become very upset when a favorite designer was auf’d, but not anymore. Maybe it’s the Jennifer Hudson syndrome, where the loser ends up being more successful than the winner that has me. For example, I know that Mondo will – and probably is – more successful than Gretchen, and Austin Scarlett is an industry within himself. It’s a terrific springboard for starting a career in fashion. If these designers really have talent and brains, then the show will benefit them by the exposure they will get. If not, then maybe it’s time to rethink the career choice. As for this season, I’m just watching and enjoying so far. No one designer really stands out for me as a favorite. I was a Bert fan, but he let me down last week with his attitude. Let’s see what happens down the road.

      Ooh, I would love to have a cocktail and lounge on one of those pink eggshell-shaped chairs.  I did swear I would never watch Project Runway again, and I mainly have been tuning in so I can read TLo’s comments.  That said, I’ve enjoyed this season so far.  The pet store challenge was a lot of fun to watch.  And it seems we’re getting more background on the designers, which for me always makes it more interesting.

      Gah.  I don’t know if I can watch.  I cannot even stand to hear the name “Kardashian.”  I mean, who the hell are they?  What do they do?  I have no idea.  All I know is that they are all vulgar looking.

      I was never one of the “I’ll never watch again” people. I watch mostly to see creative and often somewhat insane people make things in circumstances best described as ludicrous, and the for the infinite entertainment inherent in seeing people rising to the occasion or crashing into a lake of bitchery.

      As for this season, it’s started strong, and it’s better than PR Aus Season 3 (though that has seen some designers develop some late breaking personality, so it’s getting better. Unfortunately the clothes have either been mental patient (Matcho) or pretty average (everyone who isn’t Matcho)) and probably the last couple seasons but I’m not sure I’d put it up there with my various favorites yet.

      I think the season is fine so far and I didn’t swear off PR when Mondo got robbed.  I love the show and ever since I found Projectrungay I’m a bigger fan than ever.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I’m liking the season so far.  Maybe not loving it, but liking it.  I never made a vow not to watch again, so I can’t speak to that.  I was worried in the first ep where everyone had a “story,” but I’m not seeing as much made of it as I was afraid of, so yay.

      On the lounge, I have this weird image of being in that lounge having had a few SoCo and ginger ales too many.  Then trying to follow the wavy lines on the carpet.  TRIPPY.

      Off topic but…….did I miss a memo? Where is the FLOTUS and the Cambridge kids? I’m missing them.
      As for the season–I can’t watch it on Thursday so I get my spoilers on Friday morning. I really didn’t think I would watch this year but find that by Friday evening or Saturday morning I’m eating it up on Lifetimetv.com. Nothing special yet, although I haven’t seen a winner that I agree with. And Anya, she’s already on my last nerve with her constant ‘I’ve only just learned to sew.’ Don’t believe it for a minute. Loved the comment about finding a seamstress under her bed ala the pattern book guy.

          Yeah, what was UP with that? First they don’t even get it successfully up there so I can EVER see it on my browser, and then they discontinue it! Screw Lifetime! What are the chances you guys could start doing them on the blog? They were so fun!

      So far, the season is better than I had hoped. But just when I say that — BOOM! — a Kartrashian drops into a judge’s chair.  Which pisses me off no end!  Why not have Jay McCarroll judge this–someone who actually knows something about fashion and isn’t a freakin’ fame whore!  I must remember not to throw my champagne bottle into the TV screen.

      Oh, and as long as we’re giving Bunim-Murray the bird, I’m still waiting for them to come to their senses and make the challenge periods longer. So people can actually do some good work.  Yeah, when hell freezes over….

      What do I think of the season so far?  I’m just glad it’s back.  I’m enjoying the hell out of both PR9 and PRAus3.  I never said or even thought that I wouldn’t watch.  I am still rather sore at how S8 ended.  (Yeah, I know, let it go.)  Even then, I kept thinking, how horrible it would have been if I didn’t know about Mondo and his wonderful output. 

      As far as having a favorite this season, Bert has taught me, just last week, to never fall for a contestant after only one challenge.  =oP

      I like the season so far. At this point in the series, you don’t mind the producer manipulation so much. When the wrong person goes home (or ahem, WINS) then we have a problem. So far no real complaints. And I think they picked a good cast of characters.
      Also, I didn’t swear off PR; let’s call this a probationary period.

      Oh I’m watching, but it’s not like I’m taking bets or anything anymore.  After Season 5 my emotional connection to the show began to fade.  I couldn’t get angry enough to swear off watching the show ever again, so the fact that I’m watching this season can’t really be taken for anything.  I feel like spend too much time watching and wondering how the producers are crafting the “reality.”

      I really didn’t need to see that Kardiashan Kootch shot again; it burned a hole in my retina before I could screen past it! 

      I do think this cast could provide some fun down the road.  I’m dying to see some Ninacaps from T Lo, too.

      *sheepishly* I think I may have sworn it off when Gretchen won.  Oh well.  So much for the courage of my convictions.

      Actually, even when I said it I don’t think I was 100% serious.  I might be able to live without PR, but could I live without TLo writing about PR?  No, I could not.

      I’m enjoying the season so far.  I’m hoping for many, many more unconventional materials challenges.

      We’re biased toward our home girl, Danielle, so I can’t be completely objective about this season. But I know there’s only been two challenges but some how the quality just seems off (e.g., Seth Aaron’s tailoring ability, Mondo’s designs) and there aren’t any ‘characters’ (e.g, Jay Carroll, Christian Siriano who were quality and character combined) and with Bert’s lazy ass performance last week, no SissyBear emotion cases for me to root for. Of course we’ll keep watching but I’m waiting to be impressed and/or entertained.

      I think it’s pretty good. I like the change in auditioning & I liked the first challenge. My only quibble is I think the unconventional challenge should limit how much muslin can be allowed.
      I’m a reality junkie so I didn’t swear off the show. I knew once some time passed & I wasn’t as angry, I’d be back. Closest I ever came to quitting a reality show was season 2 of Top Chef.

      I’m liking the season so far. Better than last year. And here in NY, I’m enjoying the earlier time slot. Now my sons and I watch together and my younger son can scoff at me throughout the entire episode (“what is this supposed to be about?”).

      I am concerned, though, by Heidi’s lipstick choices. I’m not sure she’s picking the best colors for her complexion.

      I didn’t swear off PR last season even though I didn’t care for Gretchen, and I have no major beefs this season yet.  I was pleasantly surprised that in episode 2, we had no mentions of color blindness, Miss Universe, or uniballism.

      On an unrelated note, has the look of this site changed for anyone else since yesterday?  Each picture on the homepage no longer has the date or a little blurb, and now I have no icons at the top of the screen with “red carpet” or “reality TV” or anything like that.

      I never swore off the show, but I did say that this season would be PR’s double-secret probation for me. If it redeemed itself, okay. Anymore fuckery, I was out. So far so good, although I have a hard time getting too invested in any of the designers early on because there are so damn many of them! Each season, I watch more casually until we get down to the final 9 or so.

      The lounge is fabulous. Kim Kardashian? Oh well, we already have been pleasantly surprised by Jessica Simpson, so what the hell…bring her on.

      Hello, TLounge!  I’m sipping on a soft red wine.  I started before my kids got home from school.  I was holding a glass while picking them up at the bus stop.  That’s the kinda day it’s been.

      As for the season, I’m enjoying it.  Though, David was my pick from the auditions, and he was one of the first four cut!  I’m enjoying Victor so far, but most of them, I gotta admit, I don’t know their names, yet. I didn’t swear off the season with Gretchen’s win because I’m not much of a TV viewer, and this is one of the shows that brought my husband and I together.  Through the years, we’ve enjoyed watching it together, and even when we are apart, we watch and instant message while it’s on.  I’m not giving that up.

      I swore I would stop watching after the Seth Aaron season. I hated that season, and coming off of IRINA’S win, it was too much to bear for me. And then, the mysterious and glorious bohemian songbird waltzed into my heart with her earthy ways, earthy clothing, and razor-sharp wanton bloodlust for anyone who stood in her way. I hate to say it, but I fucking LOVED Gretchen (I liked Mondo too and would have been fine if he won too, so calm down), and the turning point when that season came alive was the first team challenge episode, when Gretchen praised her team to the heavens one second and then ripped their throats out with her teeth the second the winds changed. It was glorious reality TV programming, and I still hold it as the single most entertaining episode in PR history, since it wasn’t really notable design-wise. I don’t even remember what anyone made, but I remember that judging being discussed for weeks afterward. And that, my friends, is why I am ridiculously excited for tonight’s team challenges + the ridiculous stilts element. Shit is going to go down, and either Bert or Eyebrows  will be the Gretchen.

        People who have ever actually watched show know that Kim is much, much too boring to hate. Kourtney is the real turnip of the bunch – dumb as a post, annoying, whiny, and suffering from Mommy’s 3rd Favorite Syndrome and her shiteous boyfriend Scott Dickick.  I don’t like the family or watch any of the shows regularly at all, but I love me some Khloe. She is by far the funniest, has the best personality and seems to be the only one with a sense of humor about herself. She weathers all the “tranny” and “fat” taunts rather well, I think, and feel bad that people seem to attack her the most. Khloe is a star, while Kim is cold boogers on paper plate.

          I basically agree with you on this. I guess Kourtney doesn’t bother me as much as she does you, but Kim is definitely, definitely a boring individual. It’s like every other episode is some combination of the members of her family trying to get her to loosen up JUST ONCE (AGAIN). Khloe, though, is a girl I feel like might actually be fun to be around. I’m pleasantly surprised that her marriage seems to be holding up.

          Their mom, though, holy lord. I can’t believe no one’s had her committed yet.

            Khloe’s interesting — I was actually just watching an episode the other day when she tore into her mother about changing her name back from “Jenner” to “Kardashian”.  She was so refreshingly sensible and sane and honest.  I emailed my husband (who hates the show, which is part of why I watch it!) and even he found it sane. 

            Kourtney just drives me nuts.  Why would anyone put up with her idiot boyfriend?  And Kim is just kind of there….

      This is the first season I’ve watched of Project Runway. I know, I had to lose my virginity sometime. So far I’ve hated the #1 picks both times, and their reasons for liking or spiking an outfit seem completely inconsistent.

      That said, I’m having fun being part of the TLo lounge community.

      I’m kind of meh about PR this year. I’m only still watching because you guys make it fun, but I think if I skipped the show and only read TLo and the Bitter Kittens, it would be just as much fun. I don’t know how much I can stomach KK tonight since I have a very low threshold of tolerance for any of the Kardashian spawn. I’m definitely going to need a drink.

      kkardashian looks like me sitting down {never a good thing}, meaning: theres so much more of her than there is to heidi that it was more difficult, camera- & clothingwise to avoid getting an upskirt shot. i bet they tried. she’s doing a good job herself of using the bracelets & the calling card to minimise what i wish were never there, at least on me, in the first place. ah well.

      otoh, & this is a real question:
      i wonder if anyone younger than we are would recognize the istanbul/constantinople reference? i am seriously curious. the last time it was recorded w/ any import was probably by they might be giants in 1990 {i em’d it so people who dont know who they are would know where the band name was in that sentence}. now they are, of all things, older even than me. & the song is older even than them. if people dont watch movies older than all of us {possibly put together}, would they know what it meant?

        I’m 23 and I know that song. I also know that Istanbul really DID use to be named Constantinople, and before that, Byzantium. It’s like, history and stuff.

      Hard to tell so far about the season, especially because I missed a chunk of last week’s episode because of a DVR malfunction.  I’ve never been bored enough with the show to stop watching or even threaten to stop, although the Lifetime-ness of it is definitely not as enjoyable. 

      So for tonight, alas, I wish I had something fancy to enjoy in the swanky lounge, but the cupboards are sparse.  I’m going to have to make due with frozen pizza and a hefeweizen (or 2).

      I’m one who swore I’d NEVER watch again, but, ya know,  famous last words and all that. I think the longish hiatus was smart on PR’s part because it let the rampant anger die down a bit. Plus, for me, the fact that Mondo’s been much in evidence and Gretchen hasn’t has helped. I wish her well and all, but not at his expense. Like Milaxx, Top Chef Season 2, where a pretty heinous person who wasn’t a particularly talented chef was handed the win, was worse for me than the last version of PR. I did skip the next season of that one.
      So far I think this season is OK. I still don’t have a good bead on most of the designers and their aesthetics, as there are simply too many of them to track at this point. I do like Bert and that Anthony Ryan guy so far. My first ep of PR was the Sasha Cohen skating costume one of — was that Season 2? — and I got super hooked by Season 3. So far I’m not seeing the level of design daring-do that I recall from Seasons 3 and 4, which had some mighty talented people in them IMO. But I hope I’m proved wrong and the bright lights come shining through in the next few episodes. It may be that the wonky challenge parameters so far haven’t let the designers really strut their stuff yet.

          They showed off a little cleavage in evening wear. Think Scarlett O’Hara or others in the mid-1860s. That’s all within the Victorian era, but for evening, not daytime. And NOT little pigeon Queen Victoria who was as broad as she was tall and wore black up to her chin for most of the Victorian era. I guess there is a portrait or two of her when she was young and she had on some off-the-shoulder gown with a little neck and shoulder showing. But if Victor knows anything about that, I will eat Mae West’s pantsuit.

      I have to admit, the stilt dressing challenge has me excited. Results could be (and I’m sure, will be) gorgeous or whackadoo, but being able to design for exaggeratedly long legs somehow feels like an important design skill — not because it’s realistic, but because it requires the designers to think creatively about proportion.

      Anya and Olivier are actually showing fashion.  It’s somehow pretty.
      Cecilia and Danielle’s is just wrecked by the styling, and the colors suck.  It’s sort of secretarial and dated despite the yards and yards of fabric.
      Anthony and Laura’s design is also, like Anya and Olivier’s, somehow fashion and pretty despite it all.

      I just look at the models and the Frankensteinian by nature stiff, uncanny walking and…it all seems like an ugly and pointless way to show designs.

Bad enough I got way too much of the “I just got out of design school and this is the way it’s supposed to be done” vibe off him tonight, but the way he was shopping around his “she cut it off-grain” line really tanked it for me. On the other hand, I realize that the judges don’t get too see the workroom shenanigans, and Fallene has barely been able to keep her emotions in check thus far. Poor girl could totally self-destruct under more pressure. That said, she’s cute and spunky when she’s not beating herself up. And she makes a nice headpiece.

          Which one to get rid of? I can’t decide between Bryce and Fallene, so I’ll take the easy way out: Viktor.

          • Heather Kaplin

            Yeah, but Fallene was clearly shaken by the stress, not dealing, and was even commenting how she doesn’t feel she’s even a designer.  Even though the judges didn’t see all of that, I think it showed, especially after the way she kinda accepted the critique last week.

        • Joe J

          Well, personally I thought his attitude sucked the root this episode, and the judges seemed to hate everything about the look he & Bert made.  Meanwhile, Falene made something the judges actually liked, and although she pretty much whiffed on the actual outfit she owned up to it.  So, based solely on this episode I would prefer to have seen Viktor out when it came down to him and Falene, but honestly, between Bryce/Falene/Bert/Viktor I thought a reasonable argument could have been made for any of the four of them to be aufed.

      Couldn’t figure out the grain of the fabric.   It seems to me Brice might have shown her how to figure it out.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        They did show him trying to teach her to find it, much to his credit.  I think she was just frazzled and couldn’t absorb at that point, and I didn’t blame him for being a little frustrated, or her for feeling ashamed and overwhelmed.  I pitied her a lot there.  Obviously, she’s been learning to sew by instinct, making cute tops for herself or whatnot, and was doing all right at what she was doing… but she didn’t have the vocabulary to communicate what she was doing, and the minute she met all of these folks who knew so much more, she realized that she was out of her depth in a big way, and on national television.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_56DPRFBMRP4MZCICMG6X6GBMIA t_j_newton

          Her portfolio did not come off that way at ALL. She said she couldn’t see the grain on that particular fabric – we saw her flipping it back and forth, trying to find the side where it was easier to see the grain. I really think it was just tricky to see on that fabric. And if it was so damn important, why didn’t Bryce cut the bodice and let her work on those super-easy pants, or roll the tulle around the dress form? Why did he make her do the one tricky part he thought she couldn’t handle?

          • BuffaloBarbara

            That’s a good point.  I imagine that it’s hard to let go of your plan when time is so short.  But she did imply that she hadn’t understood what he meant by cutting on the grain, so it’s probable that she didn’t know the term, at the very least.

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_56DPRFBMRP4MZCICMG6X6GBMIA t_j_newton

              I think it’s more intentional then not being able to change his plan, but I may be reading into his behavior because I find him so amazingly mean and unpleasant. I thought her not understanding the term looked like weird editing, but I’ll have to go back and look once it’s On Demand.

            • http://twitter.com/ms_smartiepants Beth M.

              I think she understood what he meant about the grain, she just couldn’t find it. I don’t mean to sound like a pompous ass (just kidding, I totally do on a daily basis…I really can’t help myself), but for instance, if the fabric Fallene was cutting was a silk twill the grain might have been really hard for a less experienced sewist to find, since twill has funky diagonal ribs and the usual grain and cross-grain are less obvious…especially with a polka-dot print further obscuring things!

          • Anonymous

            You don’t just “see” the grain of the fabric. Each piece should have a grainline you can measure and line up parallel or perpendicular or on a 45 degree angle from the edge of the selvage, or if you are draping muslin you find the grain of each piece before you even start by pulling threads, drawing pencil in the groove, or again using the selvage. It is not rocket science on any fabric, many, many of which you cannot find it by eye alone.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OSYAJATXUH3QX7ZDDF52GXG4PU Janie R

        Okay, maybe I missed something here, but why did she have to do the bodice? Was there no conversation like “you do this cause you’re good at it, and I’ll do this because this is my strength?” Why was Brice beating that dead horse? Who picked the fabric for the bodice? I think Fallene should have gone home, but if Brice hadn’t been so close-minded it may have turned out better for both of them. He made a freakin’ black version of the skirt from last week!!

      Honestly, Fallene should have gone if she doesn’t even know to cut fabric on grain. There is nothing wrong with being self-taught, but self-taught does not mean “discovers everything on one’s own without any outside influence.” If she has not even bothered to crack a sewing book, watch a YouTube video or take a class at a local fabric shop in her pursuit of fashion design then she is not America’s next best designer, she is an amateur of the lowest order. I feel bad for her because she seems sweet but she was way out of her league. Victor at least seems like he has skills. And we all know Bert picked that grotesque fabric.

      • maryanncarolla

        So true. I’m “self-taught,” as it were. But there’s a ton of resources out there. Even the most basic Simplicity sewing pattern includes directions to cut on grain.
        It’s a pity because I thought Fallene seemed sweet, too, and I think there’s a lot of creativity in her, but, you’re right, she was out of her league.

          Fallene went home because twice now she’s offered no defense of her design. She’s basically put a “kick me” sign on her back and curled into the fetal position.

        Josh and Julie.  I didn’t think that deserved the bottom either; I think they were just trying to pick one for the bottom three, since there wouldn’t be much suspense putting in Olivier’s, given that he had immunity.  Then, in typical PR judging fashion, they made it out to be much worse than it was.  Personally, I’m with you on the stilts thing.  Complaining about it being costumey when the models were on stilts was like complaining that the circus challenge in SA’s season produced really circus-y clothes.

        • Toto Maya

          Thanks, I still haven’t learned all of their names yet. I keep thinking, “the sportsy one,” “the blonde one,” “the precious wee princess Olivier,” etc.

If I had to choose one of them to go home, it would be Burt. Heidi’s summary included the fact that the fabric choices were so awful that anything done would be horrible and the fabric seemed to be mostly Bert. Plus, Burt turned out a disaster last time and Victor didn’t. I thought he deserved to go home.

      Kimberly and Becky were robbed!  They took risks, made something edgy and different and fun.  The winning garment was both a knockoff and boring. That illusion netting was to barf.  Also, this was a BS challenge: dress a woman on freakin’ STILTS.  They talk about couture and over the top, but rewarded a design that, if it had the bottom 5′ chopped off, would be a very plain and derivative ball grown?  Terrible challenge, and lame judging (though I agree with the auf).

      • Geno Boggiatto

        I don’t think Kimberly and Becky’s detailing wasn’t as polished as it could have been.

        • Anonymous

          But what Kimberly and Becky had going for their garment, IMO, was that they really GOT the proportionality – their jacket gave the model a normal looking waist with a flattering pair of pants that made the stilt-legs look ok. The asymmetrical hem to the bottom of the jacket was very well thought out and while the pants got the bulk of the attention (and to be fair they did look extremely well made) I thought the jacket was every bit as essential a bit of holding the design look together.

          I’m sorry they didn’t get the win, I do wish PR would clean up its act with regard to the extreme referential designs, which laNina alluded to last night.

      Joshulie’s was interesting, I thought, but an incomplete idea. Those pants were extremely striking, and definitely evoked a Spanish, Dali-esque feel. Loved the matador idea but agree that it was all over the place. Wished it could have had more of a point, or a single surreal element, or…something. And it was over embellished (but I can kind of get behind that, if it’s done well). Still, I don’t think it should have been in the bottom. I thought it should have been in the middle, or maaaaaaybe in the top 3 over Beckimberly’s, which I thought was a ok but a bit of Hot Topic butt. The tattoo gave it an intention without which it would have been derided as a disco punk carnival hooker by MK. Trust. Joshulie’s had too many good ideas to be in the bottom, and while ridiculous – so was the challenge. Yet strangely, the winner was a beautiful look that could have been a real garment. Oh right, it was – Gucci. Though I must say Ms. Lo got trumped. Those extra five feet are pretty tough to beat.

        I agree that the matador look shouldn’t have necessarily been in the bottom.  But what did it in for me was the red boobs on top of legs look.  I know that Spanish matador look is high-waisted, but when you got ten feet of leg, damn, give the woman a torso!

        I thought those pants were pretty surreal.

      I can’t remember another episode in PR history when my opinion of so many designers changed in a single show – and not for the better.  I’m talking personalities rather than design.  There are quite a few unexpectedly bitchy – and two-faced – people this season.

      Hearkening back to the shooting post from June, and slightly off-topic: how on Earth does Heidi’s bra
      work? It’s the wrong shape to be strapless, but there’s no place for her
      to have hidden strappage. Her bosom is defying the laws of physics.

        She could have taped her boobs up, or there could be a bra built into the dress.

      Haven’t seen the episode yet over here on the west coast but we will in a matter of minutes… not really looking forward to the Kardashian as a judge… but whatever. Wasn’t Lindsay Lohan a judge at some point? Who really gives a shit who they put on the judges’ panel these days.

      Got me a Absolut, Chambord and amaretto cocktail, so damn tasty I don’t think it even qualifies as alcohol. And yes, I am one of the ones who once swore never to watch the show again. That was after the first Lifetime season. Then you guys got me to watch the first episode of this one and now I’m hooked again *shrugs* can’t resist the call of cracktastic fashion!

      Hated the winning one.  It was cracktastic epaulettes combines with one of the red dresses from two seasons back that was practically a knock off of a bad seventies prom dress.

      Kimberly and Becky were robbed.

      Have to admit, though, that I was expecting Fallene to be one of the early AUFs. I’m actually surprised that she lasted this long.

      I actually think it’s a much more interesting and game group than the last four seasons, to be frank.  Although, I thought this particular challenge was total ass.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I agree.  I actually like most of these guys  (in fact, though I might get pilloried for it, having Netflixed seasons one and two, I like these guys and season 7 better than the early seasons).

      I think this could have been such a cool challenge if it was explained more clearly. It seems like the judges were hoping the designers would use the interesting proportions offered by the stilts to play with form and achieve drama without veering off into costume territory. Since this was never stated explicitly (at least, not to the audience), the designers ultimately turned out one of two extremes: ridiculous looking costumes, or equally ridiculous (because of the proportions) ready to wear – that fussy chiffon office-wear was maybe the worst for me, because it just looked totally silly on stilts. I think the only team that COULD have won this challenge was Laura’s; even if it lacked originality, it was the only look that really worked with (and was improved by) the stilts, rather than just attempting to accommodate them (the only other team that came close for me was Anya’s, because the stilts and that blue fabric produced a nice flow). Viktor and Bert had the worst looking garment in my opinion, but I agree that Fallene had to go; at least the other two actually made something that wasn’t just an afterthought.

        You  hit the nail on the head, or the stilts on the models…. the challenge was not clearly stated!  I have yet to plow through all the comments, so don’t know if I’m being redundant… were the models on stilts the same as in previous challenges, or were they brought in specifically for their ability to walk on stilts?  I was really impressed with how well they handled the runway, especially at the end when they were all on the runway.  I sure as hell couldn’t have done that!!

      Poor Falene seemed very sweet, but much younger than 29 years old. I loved what Kimberly and Becky did and am looking forward to seeing more from them.
      I thought Bert and Victor had a wonderful costume, but them I’ve been known to rock a Steampunk or Renaissance costume in my day. And while I’d love to see a steamy challenge, I do realize that fashion, not costume, is what Project Runway is all about. (But – since their costume has led my mind astray – Can you imagine Tilda Swinton playing Heidi’s part in Project Time Traveling Runway?)

        Has SyFy ever had a costume show like their make-up show?  Because time travel fashion/fantasy fashion would be awesome.

      Not gonna lie, I think Kimberly and Becky’s was only in the top 3 to fill out the quota. It had more of a point of view than Anya and Olivier’s, but I don’t think it was really in any contention to win. It was verging on tacky, and the details weren’t as polished as they could have been. Josh and Julie’s could have been Top 3 if the jacket wasn’t so over the top, because the pants were great!!! A simpler jacket, maybe just a solid red with a more dramatic draping to it would have really complimented the pants.

      I think the right person won and the right person went home. Falene was sweet, but her first 2 outfits weren’t great, and she didn’t contribute anything clothing-wise to this week’s outfit! Definitely didn’t see her progressing to the finals based on her portfolio and her offerings.

      Bert screwed up big time. He’s turning out to be quite the grumpy old man that I was hoping he wouldn’t be!!! But Victor definitely was being just as difficult as Bert was – just not a great team dynamic!

      Maybe I missed something but I couldn’t understand why Bryce didn’t immediately take over cutting the pieces for the top when he realized Fallene didn’t understand about cutting on grain as that is crucial to the success of the garment. That wouldn’t have taken him too long and then Fallene could have sewed the the pieces.

        Good point, especially since the editing had Bryce emphasizing the importance of cutting on the grain.

      I have found the perfect way to watch this season:  DVR the episode, watch in fast forward, stop when it looks interesting, and watch the runway show and judging at regular speed!

      I know it’s really hard, but try to see it as lessons learned. Every time she starts up something and you successfully handle it, think, “That’s one more piece of insufferable bullshit I never have to deal with for the first time again.” It’s all experience. And experience is valuable. Like when you finally kill her and dump the body, your next partner will be so much easier!

      Well, there you have it – I swore off, and indeed didn’t watch much of the last three years at all. But last year REALLY irritated me. And I swore off. But I can’t keep up with TLo as well if I don’t watch the stupid show, so I always watch the first few episodes. I might stick with this one for a few more. (Yeah, I’m watching a show just so I can read a blog, I’m completely pathetic, wanna make something out of it?)

      Got up early to watch online before work. That was the worst challenge ever. I really don’t understand it–wasn’t there some mention of them designing for real women at the beginning of the episode? And then they bring them women on stilts??? But then they’re supposed to be doing couture, larger-than-life? I think we had a challenge with a multiple personality disorder.

      And I have to say, the whole thing made me really uncomfortable. From watching those stiltwalkers lurch around, to the bitchiness between Bert and Viktor, to Bryce and Fallene–yikes. It was a very off-putting episode. I would have liked to see Viktor go home because not only was he rude and obnoxious, he was ignorant. If you’re going to do a historical referencing, you need to get your time periods accurate. I LOL’d when Bert said, “Mae West never wore pants” and “No, that’s not Victorian, that’s Elizabethan.”

      I actually thought that Kimberley and Becky should have won–they really got the proportions right on their outfit. Danielle and Cecilia–yikes–how was their outfit couture? (I’m not even gonna mention that HAIR.) I really liked the matador idea, and I think those pants would have worked if they’d made them black and used that zigzag fabric as a detail down the side (like the satin stripe on a tuxedo pant), and the cape should have been WAY bigger.

      I can’t even remember what Anya and Olivier made. Zzzzzz.

      Poor Fallene. I agree she had to go–she just didn’t have the chops for the show. I just do not like Bryce–he comes across as mean and petty. 

      Perhaps it was too early for a team challenge?

      So I haven’t seen the 3d episode right now (planning on watching it tonight, yay !) and so far, I must say I was surprised at the lack of drama.
      No Ali ‘Look-at-I-m-walking-on-my-hand”‘s type of sillyness right at the beginning.
      No Sweat P’s “Oh-my-god-I-have-to-make-a-DRESS-for-Christsake-!-Out-of-FABRIC-What-Am-I-Gonna-DOOOOOOOOO-?” ‘s break out.
      No Gretchen’s “Oh-I’m-soooooo-top-of-the-food-chain-right-now-and-everyone-is-making-crappy-dress-so-I’m-gonna-give-them-my-unrequited-advices-because-I’m-nice-like-that” type of absent-minded snottyness (I still think she wasn’t snotty and full of herself… Right, she WAS full of herself, but she was also out of it, like standing right on one side of the road and never wondering once why everyone was on the other side).
      No, people are relatively low key and busy with the challenges, almost boringly dutifull.
      I still have great hope for these season : lack of sleep, loads of stress, impossible challenges with ridiculous amount of time will do some wonders with the ones trying to hide their true not-so-nasty but obviously competitive side.
      I can’t wait !

      I’m just happy it’s back, I think they’ve finally learned how to be themselves on Lifetime and elevate both brands as they always meant to do … and I think they picked a purposefully super-quirky/creative/oddball lot. They want weirdness this season, and not just clueless Gretchen’s passive aggression.
